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.

Pours clear deep golden yellow with a thin head that leaves spotted lacing.

The smell is clean with a hint of pale malt grain and a subtle hint of lemon.

The taste is also clean, with a kiss of honey sweetness with a mild, refreshing hop touch in the crisp, dry finish.

It has a smooth, refreshing, light body.

This is an easy-drinking, inoffensive, light pale lager. It is what it is intended to be and does a nice job at it! A solid choice for a light, refreshing brew. It could be good for something simple and refreshing year-round!

A-Nice golden color...perfect head

S-Nice malty bready aroma

T-Bready maltiness in front....just a hint of lemony hop on the finish but definitely a malt forward laGER.

M-A nice weight to this....not thin, spritzy and watery at all....more of a firm rounded body but not too big.

O-I much prefer this to Supper Club. This has a nice bready maltiness that strikes me as a helles lager type of beer. I'd recommend this as a great summer BBQ beer or just a great beer any time you want a nice fresh lager with flavor.

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

Lake House pours a pale yellow color with no head. There is a sweet and malty aroma, but overall light. The taste is pale, with nice pale malts making up the beer, subtle sweetness. Easy to drink, and solid body. Overall its a more flavorful pale lager, and the very subtle hop flavors does make this one slightly better then others.

Capital Brewery Lake House

Poured from 12 oz bottle into shaker pint. Served chilled.

A) Golden brew with over a finger of white suds. The head settled to a dusting. Decent amount of lacing.

S) Pale malt, grainy, grassy, twist of lemon. Refreshing aroma.

T) Follows the nose... Grainy, bready, grassy, hint of citrus and a slightly sweet finish.

M) A lighter body with the perfect amount of carbonation, creating a crisp, refreshing, easy drinking brew.

O) Really enjoyable brew... At 4.6% it is a super summer session option. So much better than any BMC offering after mowing your lawn. Better than Capital's Supper Club in my opinion. Glad to recommend this brew.
