GABF 2010. I think this was the only Capital at the fest I hadnt had so I went for it. pretty lame, but for what it is, I guess not that bad. Pours a very light golden with a thinning pale white head. Aroma is dusty, earthy, light corn, slight bready pils, rice, (although not sure it has any adjunct at all- but it seems that way)- some toast, light acetaldehyde. Flavor is clean, light crackery malts, some hint of corn, but otherwise mostly clean and kinda refreshing. Ok but bland. blutt59 (6579) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2010
bottle, via trade with ughsmash, dark golden orange color with tall white foam, aroma is astringent wheat, flavors of bubblegum, wheat, citrus, finish is fruity hogan873 (451) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2010
Pale golden body with a quickly disappearing white head. Grainy, cereal aroma...not much else. Crisp and clean with some decent carbonation on the palate. This beer tastes clean without much standing out. Sweet corn and grain fading to just a minor citrus finish. Easy drinking and pretty tasty. monkeychugg55 (1109) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Golden with a small white head that vanishes completely. The aroma is very grainy, with no detectable adjuncts. Grassy hops. Sweet, clean tasting, with a bit of lemongrass on the finish. Light body with prickly carbonation. Probably the best pale lager I’ve ever had. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 25, 2010
The Dan Journal #410. Tasted 10/7/10. Filtered with a pale golden hue. Moldy off-white head. Aromas of dry cereal grains and doughy bread. Medium bodied and grainy and adjunct-y. Subtle simple sugar sweetness. Tingling effervescence and a dry finish. Ever so slight orange/lemon zesty astringent bitterness. Mild toasty note. Decent body and larger than most of this style, but still just meh...

A solid lager. Gold color and well carbonated. Lots of yeast for the style. theisti (4205) - Kansas, USA - OCT 14, 2010
12 oz bottle at Blanc Burger + Bottles in Leawood, Kansas. Pour is clear yellow golden with a smallish white head that falls quick. Aroma is grain, sweet malt, a bit of cereal and toast. Taste is the malt, almost exclusively. Mildly sweet, bready, fresh tasting - but pretty one dimensional. There is a hint of hops, a touch of straw in the finish. Palate is light to medium bodied, lowish carbonation, clean and brief finish. Nice enough for the style. badgerben (5327) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Gold color with a small head. Light corn and skunky aroma. Very light corn and grain flavor, rounded out with a healthy dosage of skunk. A bit of grassy hop. slitcher (273) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Pours a beautiful golden color with a thin white head. Aromas of cereal grain and soap. Flavor is also of grains with slight hops in the background. This is not a style of beer I would usually drink, but, for some reason, I really like this beer ALOT; an excellent representation of the style. This takes me back to when I was a kid and would sneak drinks of my dad’s beer! tmoreau (4641) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2010
A full 12 oz. bottle sample to a shaker at a Glunz. Distributing tasting at the Beacon in Forest Park, IL. after the CBS picnic in Chicago. Presented a clear, light golden hue, with a modest, white head, and fleeting spots and streaks of lacing. The aroma was light grain, a touch of corn, and a typical lager nose. The flavor added low hop bitterness, light malt sweetness, with good carbonation in a light body. It is what it is, a clean, sessionable American style Lager.
