Tap at Brady’s. Clear pale gold pour with a clingy white head. Smells like a cream ale. Medium to light palate. Good for the style, so so in general.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a perfectly clear light copper/straw with a fizzy two finger head and decent retention. Body is thin and strongly carbonated, no stickiness. Fairly mild flavor profile as expected, a bit of bread and maybe a touch of honey on the finish. Pretty simple, but I think this is a nicely made beer.

This 16 oz can was sent to me by Strykzone, my trading partner premier. The brew poured butterscotch color with a good sized white head and very little lacing. Nose of floral and grassy hops. Medium body. Flavor is dominated by the hops, and the finish shows some pepper. Decent.

This is a curious beer. It seems to be lightly tart and yet it’s a lager. Say what you will about Capital but they are not the kind of brewery that lets infected beers out the door and this is a summer seasonal drank in the summer so it’s not old. I am not sure how that all works but at least it is tasty. It is a cloudy orange color w/ a quickly dissipating white head that leaves behind a good, patchy bit of lace. The nose is slightly fruity--lemon zest mostly--w/ a slight lavender/baby powder kind of character. The taste here is light and very slightly tart. This strikes me as being kind of saison-like w/ lots of interesting floral notes from the yeast and whatever else spent its time eating the wort. It is medium bodied with crisp carbonation and rather refreshing. There is a slight cereal grain character here and a touch of sweetness as well. It finishes w/ a very light touch of lemon juice tartness and a touch of banana. I really don’t know what to make of this. Given the purported style, I would say this is probably infected and yet it tastes really nice. I might classify this beer as it is as a Berliner Weiss or something: mildly tart, mild flavor, crisp and refreshing. It is a good beer but seems to be that way accidentally. As a lager, this is all kinds of wrong, but as a beer I like it a lot and I chose to rate it as the latter.
