Poured from a twelve once bottle into a czechvar glass.

Pours a medium straw with a decent head that recedes to a cap and laces adequately.

Aroma is of light malt and toasted bread with honey. Light noble aroma, slightly floral. Crackery malted notes dominate.

Flavor opens with well attenuated malts. Flavor is of hard tack bread and sourdough biscuits. Middle brings slight hops flavor. Hops are light and slightly bittering with a bit of fruitniness, but not well represented which I don't expect out of this style. Finishes dry even though the malt is heavy in this brew and a bit sweet. Hops actually finish with a flavor that I can only describe as floral, like rose hip tea.

Mouthfeel is crisp, carbonation is a bit high. There is a bit of a light mouthfeel given the flavor, but I think tis is what Kirby was after with this brew.

Overall I will say that this brew is a PERFECT bridge between BMC and light BMC to a good beer. This is what a lager should taste like and the malt is excellent in this one. This beer is flying off the shelves, and I have heard this first brewing is sold out, and I can tell why. This is a beer for macro drinkers that think that this is close to a macro, but isn't. The biggest thing I like about his beer is it has what other American Lagers don't have, flavor. I do think that other reviewers have been extremely harsh on this beer and have not rated it according to style, which it is excellent in i'ts style guidelines.

I hesistate to rate beers really high. That said, based on the style this is a HOME RUN. Keep it up Kirb.

Nose is sweet and fruity when cold. Gets more yeasty with warmth. Flavor is also sweet with apple qualities. Beer almost reminds me of a hard cider. Very good. Lots of carbonation.

A-Pours a chalky white head that quickly dies. Straw golden with just the slightest cloud noticed.
S-Pale malt aroma, just a hint of hoppy spice, and an ethanol astringency.
T-lagerish-hints of malt and a little touch of hops but not much else going on
M-A little heavier than many domestic lagers
D-As with most lagers this could be pounded into oblivion.
O-This is a nice lager. As with most Capital brews it is well done. But in my opinion if you're going to have a lager-why bother spending the extra money for this one and just get one of the cheap domestics. This one isn't that much different. I doubt that many people could distinguish this from MGD.

Slight off aroma on the nose – not quite sure what it is. Pours brilliant pale gold with a ½” pale white head. The palate is a slight caramel, faint honey, a touch of tanginess. Medium light body and medium carbonation. A somewhat insipid session beer.

Ah, my first beer review from Canfest. . . my old friend Capital Brewery, ah, they should do some big business with the Buckeyes coming to Camp Randall this Saturday.

Yellow pour, a little darker than usual canned yellow beer. Not much if any aroma going on.

Taste, wow, this is really bland. Talk about "truth in advertising," the can actually says "not bad." True, the best thing you can say about this, is 'not bad' indeed. This is their BMC beer, and well, all things considered . . . ('not bad'). Somewhat smooth, as if a light cream ale. Not a lot of anything (hops, malt, yeast flavor) aside from water.

I hear its $10 a 6 pack? That levels out the otherwise awesome drinkability of a marginal beer.

(Served in a strange)
A- This beer has a very slight hint of hazy to the golden body with a thin white head that soon fades away. There is a big carbonation of bubbles that pop of the bottom of the glass and glide to the surface.
S- This beer has a clean aroma with a soft note of dry corn and a faint sulfur smell in the finish. There is a faint musty quality that reminds me of roast beef but it is very light.
T- This beer has a very clean taste with a carbonic acid note in the finish. The dry corn hint comes through in the aftertaste and grows as the beer warms. The taste of raw grain hulls grows as the beer opens.
M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a slightly flat texture and a soft fizz in the finish.
D- This beer is dry and clean with no off flavors or much character at all. It is a well build beer just a bit bland and dull to drink.

Here's another beer that I had on NYE at Towne Inn in Jefferson, WI. I had heard that this beer was pretty good so I thought I'd give it a shot.

It's a good quality beer. This is a good simple balanced beer with a medium body, good mouthfeel and taste. I could see myself drinking a few more of these in the future.

"0302" stamped on the bottom; poured from a 12oz can into my Harriet pils glass.

Clear pale golden amber with a soft milky white head. Soapy lacing, average retention.

Sweet faintly grainy aroma with a hint of grass.

Sweet grainy palate entry with hints of corn (despite this not being brewed with adjunct) and hay. Low bitterness. Relatively crisp, yet still sweet finish.

Light bodied, well carbonated, and nicely lagered.

Not bad for the style, but a bit too sweet and dull. Their motto is apt: "Not Bad."
