COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic Wisconsin Lager at itís finest. Harking back to an era where Supper Clubs were In Vogue and Wisconsin had numerous regional breweries making their version of American Style Lagers. You know, back when these types of beers exhibited regional soul. And many of these beers were enjoyed during an evening spent at a local Supper Club, visiting with friends and family and having a good dinner. Supper Club is an eminently drinkable version of a true American Lager. Featuring a greater depth of refreshing malt character than the mass marketed versions of the style, Supper Club is clean yet satisfying.

Pours a clear, golden color with a white head on top. Solid malt backbone with a light hop characteristic. This has to be the best pale lager I have ever consumed...guaranteed. Slight honey notes with a light biscuit base. Smooth and refreshing...medium bodied, which is more than usual.

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 fruitiness, but not well represented which I donít 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 isnít. The biggest thing I like about his beer is it has what other American Lagers donít 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 itís style guidelines. I hesitate to rate beers really high. That said, based on the style this is a HOME RUN. Keep it up Kirb. Reviewed on: 04-24-2010

Thin head. Disappears quickly. Pale straw color. Very clear. Fruity lager like aroma. Sweet flavor with notes of honey. Good body almost no hops or bitterness. Smooth crisp finish.

Had this one bottled, thanks Jim! Beautiful golden color with a foamy white head, an uncomplicated beer, with an excellent hoppiness balanced with grassy malt. I like this beer.

I really liked this beer. Poured a clear, medium yellow, with half inch head with good lacing. Nice even malt notes, with smooth hop finish. Slight citrus and honey flavor with balanced notes at the end without bitterness.

For your all-American pale lager its really hard to find one more enjoyable than this. Definetly better than your standard PBR or Bud. Aroma is limited. Foam head disappears quickly (poured bottle into glass), but the color is far more golden than your typical American lager. Very enjoyable crisp flavor overall. Easy drinker.

Delicious and great easy drinking beer that is perfect for cook outs in summer. Great alternative to wheat beers.

A lot of people seem to be down on this one, but not me. To me this was a very good, clean, crisp, well balanced lager. Good aroma, malty flavor, and decent mouthfeel. Refreshing for a hot day in the sun or with a good burger or other meal. The name fits well. Not my favorite capital brew (or even lager, for that matter), but highly enjoyable. Give it a chance while you still can!

Rating the style here. See this is such a great pale lager. Beautifully clear. Supper crisp carbonation. Tight white head. refreshing. a solid malt backbone. I just donít get why people dog this style. Drink a busch then drink this and you will appreciate the work that was put into it. Mouth watering finish. Not dry but refreshing making you want more. a great easy beer with enough flavor to make me happy. If this were a pale ale or ipa well, then Iíd probably give it a shit score but itís not. Itís a pale lager. Itís like grading a kindergartener. are you really gonna give that little tike an D+ for coloring spongebob green and not yellow?
