3.01/5  rDev -16.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A- Pours a seemingly thick (at first) two fingered head that gradually dissipates out. Leaves a foam ring around the glass. Minimal, but present lacing. Cloudy golden in color.

S- Bready, yeasty.

T- Slight citrus, even slighter caramel. I don't really taste too much really. Bummer...hoping to pick out a winner out of the refrigerator tonight.

M- Slightly sting on the ol' tongue. Kind of thin.

D/O- Not for me but the drinkability would be high for others I presume...so I'll come to a compromise. What's the deal with the style being their seasonal brew? I'm all for breaking the rules...just seems odd.

Capital Fest Beer: This is a deep red beer, unusual for a summer beer. The taste has a fairly strong malt taste, with hops pronounced at the end. I’m a little surprised that this is a summer beer; it tastes much heavier than a refreshing Hefe Weiss.

Admittedly i really dislike this style.

A: Very clear beer, obviously lagered to its full length leaving this one practically see through. Bone white head.

S: Moldy grain husk smell. Almost as if using a septic system near pasture. Not good.

T: Starts with potential and drops off in a hurry in the middle. I guess grain is what i taste but honestly I dont taste much.

M: Leaves a dryness on the tongue, but the flatness of taste and abrupt ending doesnt carry any flavor over the mouth in any experiential sort of way. Particularly because the abv is over 5 you wouldnt know.

D: I could see drinking this at oktoberfest for hours...and getting drunk.
