Solid. As a fisherman, I refer to this as a "boat beer." Drinkable, pleasant and crushable.

Aroma’s beer and minerals, hint of refinery. Flavor’s on the sweet side. Kind of reminds me a bit of a world beer. Totally forgettable. Lingering sweet finish that isn’t refreshing at all.

A-Hazy golden color with a thin head and lacing.

S-Smells of sweet malt and lemon zest.

T-A light lager breadiness and sweet malts.

M-Crisp and refreshing. The colder the better for this one.

O-Capital definitely got this one right. This is the exactly the beer I want to drink while sitting at The Union looking over Lake Mendota. In a time where every other summer beer seems to be mixed with lemonade, Lake House will be my only day drinking beer.

One of my great pleasures in recent memory is an at-least once a year visit to Madison, Wisconsin. It was during one of these forays that I stopped in at Riley's Wines of the World in furtherance of The CANQuest (tm). They are always acCANmodating to me & I look forward to my next visit.

From the CAN: "See You at the Lake!"; Slightly malty and lightly hopped, this clean refreshing golden lager is the perfect beer to quench your thirst on a warm sunny day."

I Crack!ed It open & gave it a gentle Glug which still raised a brief finger of fizzy, foamy bone-white head with limited retention, quickly becoming wisps. Color was a lightly hazy Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4), although it may have been a chill haze as it seemed to clear as it warmed. Nose had a honey-like lager sweetness that I often associate with a clean, adjunct-free lager. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was honey-like accompanied by a light lemony tartness, which made it really dry and refreshing. Finish was clean, dry and a good CANdidate for the summer cooler.
