4.18/5  rDev +29%

A - Crisp golden color topped by a quick-lived off-white head starting at a quarter inch and fading off to mere whisps. The body displays action as I would expect from a lager, lots of bubbles.

S - Malty thick with a hint of pear.

T - Now this is a tasty lager. A beer that tastes as those my grandfather would have at one time enjoyed. Smooth, subtly roasted malt accompanied by hintings at a hop presence. There is a slight sweetness in the finish that really makes this brew go.

M - Mildly coarse throughout but differences among each texture, which makes this difficult to explain. Basically, this brew's feel offers different levels of mild texture as it transitions from the start to middle to end to finish. I'm rather impressed.

~ Overall this is a good beer offering from my fellow Wisconsite from the south. I could certainly kick back with a six pack of this brew and watch a fire burn.

Hahahahaha ya, well.... Trying to think of the biz plan for this: we're going to make an average cheapo beer, use a marketing gimmick, an there ya have it. That's what this is. While it's true this is what's common in the county supper clubs, so what? Wax nostalgic.Poured with a nice white head and good lace. Color is a clear amber. Aroma is world common beer with a little extra malt. Flav is the same. Body is world common and ok. Finish - ditto. Session if it's your only option.

12 oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass. 5.0% ABV, 0620 printed on the neck.

A - Tall and relatively vigorous, the pour only gives this beer a one-finger white head with low retention and patchy lace. The color is a brilliantly clear golden yellow full of carbonation.

S - Pale and Pilsner malts combine for a clean and lightly malty nose with a subtle sweet hint. Low hop presence in the nose leaves the aroma crisp and clean but unimpressive and one-dimensional.

T - Again, pale and Pilsner malts make up almost all of the flavor with a mild sweetness that's offset by a light floral hop flavor on the end. Clean but again, fairly one-dimensional.

M - Light-bodied and crisp with a clean, sparkling finish and low dryness. Supper Club is refreshing and smooth but it doesn't go far beyond that.

D - "You can't fault 'em for making a beer to pay the bills." as spoken by Todd. I agree with that statement. I've got two remarks on the label that stand out to me. "Not Bad." and "A Wisconsin State of Mind." First, it isn't bad, it's really drinkable but there isn't really any substance to it. Secondly, I hope that Wisconsin statement isn't meant to represent this beer as what all of Wisconsin wants to drink (although for most people it is), it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth (figuratively). Capital can do better, but again, you can't fault 'em for making a beer to pay the bills.

I've been hearing a lot about this beer around town, tons of advertising. my wife picked up a 6 pack and we split a bottle tonight. looked decent enough, but the nose and then the taste was pretty bad. tastes like miller or any other macro brew. if anyone wants the other 5 bottles, let me know.

on tap at the brewpub in Middleton. pours a rich golden color with a single finger of white head that retains poorly and leaves moderate lacings.

aroma is of light lager yeast with a distant sweetness and a touch of floral grain in the background. pleasant and fresh in the nose.

taste is a solid mix of lager yeast, golden malts and a mix of floral notes and munich malts. the malt profile is similar to a steam beer, though not nearly as assertive. well put together with a nice mix of flavors and a clean finish of little residual.

mouthfeel is light bodied and satisfying. a well made lager with enough flavor to sustain itself over a couple rounds.

drinkability is good. a solid lager with a drinkable aura. twice the concentration and this could be a great steam beer. cheers!

After a stop at the the brewery I was introduced to this beer. It tasted pretty good out of the tap so I figured I'd take a growler home and see what it's all about. It poured a golden straw color with lots of carbonation but little to no head. The aroma was faint. I got a whiff of sweet grain and a touch of malt. The flavor was a tad muted. Crisp and clean but not much flavor other then a bit of malt a slight hop bite. This seems like afairly light offering from Capital. The carbonation was decent but it felt very thin in the mouth. Not a bad beer overall. Not a great beer though either. I could drink this but, would rather have many other beers from this brewer.
