COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops with an American accent. Disarmingly drinkable.

12 oz. bottle. Pleasant, floral, dry, hops-dominated aroma. Buttery, fruity smell, like peaches or apricots and cream. Also a touch of pine scent. Pours a sparkling, pale gold with a lot of bubbles. Moderate to large amount of tightly laced beige head. Produces nice, thick lacing. Buttery primary taste. Light spices, pine, and lemon sourness. The flavors arenít strong, but they are nice. Dry finish and appetizing, dry aftertaste. Medium body. Smooth, silky texture complements the creamy taste well. Some liveliness on the palate. Capital U.S. Pale Ale is a friendly, accessible, and very pleasant APA across the board. Iím impressed!

[Growler, thanks Skyview] Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of a lot of grain and grapefruit. Taste is not very bitter, a lot of grain throughout with some grapefruit at the end. Not the best APA out there, but not the worst either.

Bottle. Pours a pale clear amber with a lace of off-white head that accumulates at the edge of the glass. Very little lacing. Floral hops aroma with a rich malty, spicy body. Light bodied, very mild, some spiciness in the finish. A bit soapy, hint of toast. Thin.

Juelze (1139) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Pours a clear golden color with thin, white, fizzy head. Aroma is like floral hops and subtle malt backbone. Taste is floral hops, light biscuit and slight citrus. Easy drinking and well carbonated. This would be an excellent lawnmower beer.

jmohno (1137) - Iowa, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Creamy ring of foam,no head.Medium gold.More of a floral hop aroma than spice ,fruit but fairly mild,then a mineral aroma with sweet grain(belgian malt?) and soft bread,mildly english. Good immediate short lived creamy/ body,soft taste with good hop flavor then an sharp/tart citrusy spice light herbal bittering. Even a bit of pepperyness overall.Very dry light finish,making this very sessionable.Pretty nice overall taste of hops. Good residual bittering with light sweet carmel malt. I wouldnt ever pass up a few pints of this,probably wouldnt get sick of a six pack of this either.

Pours a light amber with a small off white head. Aroma is lightly sweet candy, citrus and light floral. Flavor is light citrus hops and faint caramel malt. Light bodied, sticky mouthfeel. Finishes abruptly and bitter.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

doubelknv3 (994) - Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2010 Pale golden with thin white head. Mild citrus, cascade nose, and mild caramel aroma notes. Citrus, mild earth and lite sweet malt balance. Smooth, but not a robust APA. Good for a small session.

12 oz bottle pours an almost clear orange with small white head but good lacing. Aroma is of piney and citrus hops with a good caramel malt backbone, but nothing overpowering. Flavor is malty without much of a finish. Light to medium body. A good APA but nothing Iíll remember.
