Totally impressed by this beer. What little I was expecting of a cream ale is upon need by the awesome balance of hop bitterness and malt smoothness. If you took Spotted cow and I ejected some hop flavor, you'd get this .. incredibly refreshing. Wonderful aroma.

Sigh. I was excited that Capital made something other than a lager....but alas.

Really very little hop flavor. Just a little bittering. Really lacks flavor.

Appearence is decent with a light lingering head.

Almost no aroma. Light floral. Maybe some noble hops.

Not bad, not good just a nice average summer porch pounder kind of beer. I will give Capital credit for trying something a little different. As much as I like Capital beers, many of them taste exactly the same to me. It was refreshing to see them deviate from their standard bocks to try an "IPA" type of beer. That said, the taste was pretty mellow. There was some hoppy bitterness but it was pretty muted and I only got a very faint feel of it being a creamy beer.

Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.

According to the limited information provided me by the label, I'm assuming this thing is meant to be a hoppy cream ale. Right on. It pours a clear brass topped by a half-finger of diaphanous dirty white foam. The nose comprises light vanilla, light banana, light cracked wheat, light vegetation, and very light pine needles. Everything's pretty weak and nondescript. The taste holds notes of grass, mixed greens, very light grapefruit peel, light wheat, and a mild bit o' what may or may not be black pepper. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, a nice little brew, nothing entirely eye-catching, but something easily drinkable and generally enjoyable.
