12oz bottle poured into a shaker. There’s an initial burst of lemon on the nose, but this fades quickly and gives way to a crusty bread note. There’s also hints of damp cardboard, and a sugary candy caramel. It pours a clear, effervescent, yellow orange color with an active, soda-like, white head that evaporated very quickly. Small bubbles continue to stream up, but they burst almost as soon as they hit the surface. A very thin, soapy ring is left behind with a clear surface, and no lace. It’s a medium-high, syrupy sweetness with a light bitter note to mellow it out some. The slick, waxy texture has an above average amount of soft, fuzzy carbonation and a medium malty body. Notes of mineral water, a dry, sweet, white wine are noted on the tongue. Some caramel and toasted bread come through more on the finish. The aftertaste keeps the bread and the minerals lingering and the caramel becomes more honey-like. ClarkVV (6825) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 26, 2014

Not much head to speak of. White cluster of bubbles runs for the edges. Clear waxy-yellow looking body is well-carbonated.
Clean, at least, is the nose. Very little hop character to speak of, but I guess that’s what they’re going for. Maybe a touch of pepperiness. Mostly just white bread sugars from the malt. Touch of vanilla light mineral.
Fairly watery, again mostly clean, with some waxiness and vanilla that are perhaps a bit unwanted but none of the majors offenders of the style; dms, diacetyl, acetaldehyde, etc...Well-attenuated and certainly quite drinkable. I guess I was expecting something a little more characterful from Capital, since their other beers are so delicious, but this is what it’s billed as and you can’t fault it for that.
A very easy drinking lager that represent a good night out at a supper club in WI. Nice amount of hops but enough malt character to balance this lager out. Very clean tasting. aleichter (31) - - JAN 22, 2014
Light bodied lager with lemony aroma. Easy drinking but not a very complex flavor. It would be a good beer on a hot summer day. jgb9348 (6397) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Clear golden coloured body with a thin two centimetre tall white head. Aroma of lemons, wheat, grass and a bit of metal. Light-bodied; Sharp malt notes with some grain, rice and honey all with a nice malt depth and some metallic twangs near the end. Aftertaste shows some mild malt tastes, a bit of grain and metal, some rice and a bitter finish. Overall, a nice beer for the style, but not great overall - drinkable, of course, but showing a bit too many bitter and deep flavours. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Corner Store (Bait and Tackle) in West Palm Beach, Florida on 30-December-2013 for US$2.39 sampled in my hotel room here in Clearwater, Florida on 03-January-2014.

From a bottle. Pours clear copper gold with a very thin white head. Tastes like beer, some malt, some grains, pretty light and mild. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like malt and some wheat. Nondescript. sonnycheeba (6214) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle shared by friends. Pours clear pale gold with thin, fizzy white head. Aroma is pale malts, light corn, faint caramel, and faint citrus. Flavor is fairly non-existent with some dry malts and faint fruit; dry finish. Light body and low carbonation. Finhead (1783) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2013
A clear, golden pour with a minimal white head. The aroma is a little malty with hay and light corn. It has a medium, crisp body with lively carbonation. The taste is sweet with a smooth finish. Jaysbeers (87) - - OCT 27, 2013
Can to glass. Pretty good for a light lager, but what you'd expect. Nothing fancy.

On tap @ the Über Tap Room in the Wisconsin Cheese Shop, Milwaukee. Clear light gold, simple light grainy profile, no real hop presence to speak of. Not much to say really.
