Picked this up on a recent Great Lakes region trek.

Pouring into a New Glarus pint glass. Mostly clear, light golden with a thin off-white head. Retention is spotty.

Gentle crockery malt and a modest perfumey hop tickle the nose. Subtle corn sugar sweetness.

Red delicious apple, fresh baked biscuit with a touch of honey sweetness. Hints of perfumey hops. Bitterness is low/moderate-low. Medium-dry finish with a lingering sweet dough.

Light in body, modestly carbonated. Smooth, easy drinking.

For a pale lager this packs plenty of flavor. Enjoying the apple, biscuit dough flavors. Crisp finish. Thirst quenching, enjoyable take on the style.

Served in a Walter Payton shaker pint glass.

I still don't really get the concept of supper clubs, even after having it explained to me... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear straw topped by an off-white foam. The nose comprises light biscuit, bread yeast, very light corn, and a touch of powdered sugar. The taste brings in more of the same, though with more bread, more powdered sugar, and a bit of banana. The body is pretty light, with a moderate carbonation and a sorta dusty, sorta creamy feel. Overall, nothing Earth-shattering, but a nice, easy-drinking, simple brew. Not bad.

I'm, not sure why I switched from the better beers they had on tap in the hotel lobby bar here in House on the Rock Inn in Wisconsin. I guess I can feel the alcohol and I will soon be falling asleep at 9PM central time.So I tried this lighter one.

It has the american lager taste or lack therof down good. Actually, it is the style well done, but that isn't saying much.Thie style never really impresses.

It'sa perfect clear dark yellow. Very little head or lace. The aroma is missing and the taste is crisp, with a hint of yeast,. which almost makes it interesting. Why this cost a little more than the other stuff at the bar is really a mystery.

"Not Bad" is on the label, this pretty much sums it up.

Pours a golden yellow with a light head. Aroma mainly malt forward, cereal, and a hint of pear/plum. Tastes like a straight foward lager. Very crisp on the tongue, malty with typical cereal yeasty flavors and some mineral notes, mainly iron. Light on the mouth, wet, finishes clean, leaves a slight tingle and bitterness on the tongue. Fairly drinkable, refreshing on a hot day, otherwise passable.

A - Pours with two fingers of white foam on top of a perfectly clear, golden body. A vigorous column of bubbles rises from the bottom of the glass and supports the head as it settles slowly and leaves light lace.

S - Light, grainy malt and a bit of apple aroma.

T - Light, smooth malt up front. Some fruity notes of pear in the middle and more sweet malt. Light bitterness and a hint of herbal hop flavor in the finish.

M - Medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.

D - Not bad, this is a pretty simple beer but it has a nice, thick malt character. Drinkable, but I wouldn't want a whole sixpack of it.

I found this single 12oz aluminum can at the Binny's store in Plainfield, IL for $1.69 - my first Capital product in a can. "A Wisconsin State of Mind" is printed on the can, but no freshness date to be found.

The can produced a nice whoosh sound when opened, like opening a new can of tennis balls, and a bit of the beer rose up and spilled out down the side of of the can. Once I got it into my beer mug the beer poured a slightly hazed straw yellow color with a huge 4-finger head that lasted over two minutes. Despite the nice head the beer left no lacing whatsoever.

The beer had a pleasant sweet pale malt and touch of sweet corn aroma.

An Okay corn and malt flavor that made the beer slightly sweet, but by no means a sickening sweetness that you find in some lagers. Just a touch of hops for balance but not much bitterness in this one.

Light to medium body, smooth, and with only moderate carbonation. I did get an unpleasant slightly metallic finish maybe due to the aluminum can.

I thought it was decent as far as lagers go, and will definitely buy it again if I see it.

Pours out a clear straw color with a fizzy one finger head that quickly deflates to nothing and leaves absolutely nothing behind for lacing. The first sniff strongly presents to me as a freshly boiled ear of the juiciest freshest sweet corn from your local farmer's market. More smelling and exploration reveals the pale malts in a foundation supporting the huge explosion of sweet corn odor. Sipping at the brew is much of the same as the nose, only now I can detect the light presence of a slight breadiness, some kind of interesting muskiness, and what seems to be a partially shelf-degraded floral hop flavor profile. A fresher bottle would probably be in better bittering balance, but mine is leaning too far into the sweet zone for my idea of what a pale lager ought to be. Still, its really primarily quite....corny. Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, medium bodied, stays smooth and inoffensive.

Just slightly better than an average macro brew, and if you love your sweet corn, than this could be your go-to beer. If you don't like sweet corn, avoid this one altogether. Does nothing glaringly wrong nor anything spectacularly well.

As a side note, I am amused by the prominent words "Not Bad" which appear on the label art margin next to the product name. How many foodstuffs do you come across which choose to advertise the idea of "Not Bad" instead of "We're the best!"
