jmagnus87 (2333) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma of honey and grains with a hint of dank hops. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Honey and grains with slight citrus hops. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a longer than expected finish. Overall, not bad. Drinkable, but nothing to seek out.

wxman (1387) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Pours a nice pale yellow with a small but decent head that skins the glass throughout. Aroma is grains and a little hop spice. Taste is sweet pale malt, corn, biscuits and some minor yet noticable hop bitterness. A summer refresher to be sure, but rather pedestrian.

12 ounce bottle
Another pick up from Steve’s, this one caught my eye as different from the normal Capital styles I am used to. A fine light session beer is drinkable. While it might not be unique it at least felt worth the $1.99 that it cost. If offered one at a picnic I wouldn’t turn it down.

Aroma / Appearance - A rose gold base is bright and cheery. Dense white head settles over time to a thin layer of dust. Rye, oranges, and wheaty feels chewy for something under 5% ABV.

Flavor / Palate - Rye and lemon glaze sweetens the tongue after just one sip. Orange peels dried until brittle transition into a wheaty finish. The background carbonation keeps it light and lively. Just a cut above average it is decent without being unique. Pick up one, see if you like, and then maybe go back for more.

Single bottle from Lemon Tree. Not sure why Capital is pumping out the pale lagers. I’m really not interested in trying all of them side-by-side to see if they’re any different. This starts with oxidation under the cap. Pale yellow under a foamy head that at least clings to glass a bit. Smell in the glass is the usual pale malt, though there may be a bit more hop at work. Taste is more of the pale lagers malt, but at least it seems to be all malt, and just a slight bit more German hop at work. Not much more than a sneeze, but a decent fishing beer.

rosenbergh (6493) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2013
12 fl oz bottle. (Friar Tuck) Springfield, IL.
Clear pale yellow golden colour with a small white head. Mild wheaty and ricey aroma. And a bit like Kölsch. The flavour is hoppy bitterness, wheaty maltiness and some yeastiness. Very summery. Soft carbonation. Easy to drink.

The honeyed character of grains provides the appeal of Lake House Summer Lager. There is a bit of wonkiness that seems to come from the grains as well but it does not significantly detract from pleasant aspects. There is some complexity and sweetness while pronounced is not unreasonable.

wlajwl (3745) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Aroma is pale lager with a hint of grit. The flavor is the same as the aroma along with some citrus and a mildly beery finish.

crossovert (6934) - Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Typical biscuity buter nature of this brewery, some light hoppiness. Easy to drink.

AWISLguy (1163) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2013
On tap at Monks in the Dells. Sigh. Pours yellowish orange with a white head. Aroma has lemon, bread and honey. Taste is of malty honey with some citrus. Light.

dekester1 (309) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Poured a crystal clear gold with minimal head and lacing. Aroma was of fruity malts. Taste was similar with malts, followed by a slighty sour hoppiness with a hint of hay at the end. The mouthfeel was OK. Overall, not a bad brew for summer time, although this does not seem like it fits the normal pale lager category.
