From: Friar Tuck, Savoy, IL
Date: None on bottle
Glass: US pint glass

Capital's Supper Club is a fairly refreshing, if unoriginal, light American lager. Clean pale malts, hints of corn, and mild noble hops are the major flavors. Not unappetizing, but not something I see myself seeking out to drink again.

Pours a 2cm tall, clean white head. Retention is average for the style, lasting about a minute, and the head leaves little lacing with its descent. Body is a transparent golden yellow with slight orange tint, light bringing out bright yellow highlights and illuminating plenty of small, streaming carbonation.

Aroma is of light grain, corn, and slight iron. Fairly bland, though this seems like average for the style.

Overall, the beer tastes like sweet pale malts, some cooked corn, mild noble hops and hop bitterness, particularly in mid-palate and aftertaste. Specifically, tasting opens with sweetness: a hint of apple juice and light pale malt sugars. Mid-palate of continuing malt sweetness and some noble hop flavor and bitterness. Closes out with continued malt sweetness and modest, lingering bitterness.

Beer is light in body, somewhat watery, with carbonation of medium intensity that foams this up on the palate somewhat, creating a mouthfeel that is at first mildly fizzy and then foamy and watery around the edges. Does not close very dry, minor stickiness lingering across the palate after a sip.

Another treat from my surprise Christmas mixer pack...

A - Pours a clear pale golden colour, finger of head with little retention and no lacing.

S - Scent is dominated by bready malts, sweet corn and hints of grassy hop notes on the finish.

T - Sweet corn and apple juice off the top, heavy bready malts, a buttery caramel flavour and a touch of grassy hops.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and wet.

O - Nothing fancy here. Reminiscent of any run of the mill macro lager with a tad more on the flavour profile. I suspect that's what they were aiming for on this brew, but it's not a brew to write home about. Nothing fancy, but certainly not terrible. An easy drinking brew that pairs well with any meal, and could easily be a session brew on a night of heavy drinking.

I am greeted with a label that says "Capital Supper Club - A Wisconsin state of mind" paying homage to the dying prevalence of the small town Wisconsin Supper club. It brings back some nostalgia having grown up in rural Wisconsin. Off to the side it offers the description of "Not Bad", and nothing else.

A - pours like a high life, a thin white film resides over the painfully transparent body, a shade dark of straw yellow.

S - Smells of some basic grains, it is nice to see a lager of this kind without the overbearing slap in the face of corn. Smells really sweet.

T - Sweet in a weird way, a lot like a malt liquor. Sweetness is a kind of astringent fruitiness almost like a cheap white wine.

M - Tart and thin, about what you'd expect.

O - The label says it all

This was not fun.

Bottle poured into pilsner glass.

Results were not too good.

One finger fast reducing head

Over carbonated

Awful wet grain taste, there was nothing else there for me.

Mouthfeel: harsh!

Smells: grain

Overall, this is not a complex beer. Furthermore, I have never really found a pale lager that I truly liked. I do not think I would seek this beer out. Quite frankly, I think I may avoid this style in general from now on.
