On tap at Capital Brewery. 12oz poured into a plastic cup 9/2/2014.

A- Clear, lighter golden-yellow body with a one finger white head with OK retention and nice lacing. [3]

S- Grainy pale malt breadiness and a bit of lemon. Nothing much more, nothing much less. [2.75]

F- Bready pale malt sweetness, earthy noble hops and some lemon marmalade. [3]

M- Lighter in body but still flavourful, crisp, refreshing and well carbonated. It is what it is advertised to be. Grainy slightly sweet finish. Quite drinkable. [3]

O- Decent pale lager. Nothing crazy, certainly has no flaws that I can point out other than the fact that it's relatively boring in terms of what it brings to the table. [3]

Final score: 2.95

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I wish I had a lake house somewhere (so long as it doesn't have some spooky timeline-derailing mailbox out front)... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear pale-ish brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises sweet biscuit, light white bread, and lemon-flavored Pez. The taste brings in more of the same, with the breads taking a back seat to the lemon, which, unfortunately, now more closely resembles stale lemon rinds than Pez pieces. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly-watery feel. Overall, were it not for that funky lemon bit, this might have been a decent little thirst-quencher, but instead it just makes me sad.
