Capital's Supper Club is a fairly refreshing, if unoriginal, light American lager. Clean pale malts, hints of corn, and mild noble hops are the major flavors. Not unappetizing, but not something I see myself seeking out to drink again.
Pours a 2cm tall, clean white head. Retention is average for the style, lasting about a minute, and the head leaves little lacing with its descent. Body is a transparent golden yellow with slight orange tint, light bringing out bright yellow highlights and illuminating plenty of small, streaming carbonation.
Aroma is of light grain, corn, and slight iron. Fairly bland, though this seems like average for the style.
Overall, the beer tastes like sweet pale malts, some cooked corn, mild noble hops and hop bitterness, particularly in mid-palate and aftertaste. Specifically, tasting opens with sweetness: a hint of apple juice and light pale malt sugars. Mid-palate of continuing malt sweetness and some noble hop flavor and bitterness. Closes out with continued malt sweetness and modest, lingering bitterness.
Beer is light in body, somewhat watery, with carbonation of medium intensity that foams this up on the palate somewhat, creating a mouthfeel that is at first mildly fizzy and then foamy and watery around the edges. Does not close very dry, minor stickiness lingering across the palate after a sip.

Besides Old Style, I always have at least one of these when I'm Chicago. They say "Don't Judge a Beer By the Label"! I did, and that's what struck my fancy on this one. Very easy drinking, and especially good in Summer. For a micro/craft brewery specializing in pale ales, they did a very good job on this pale lager.
