12 oz bottle. Pours a light, slightly amber gold color. Thick citrus aroma gives a hint of the definite grapefruit flavors. Spicy, not a particularly strong hops flavor. Slightly bitter, less than other American Pale Ales. A bit oily on the palate. All in all a delicious beer that I would come back to. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Had this one on draught at the brewery in Middleton, Wisconsin. Clear, medium golden pour with a wispy white head, light floral hoppy nose, nuanced bitterness but plenty of floral, piney hops. Strong but balanced finish. Great! Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Pretty pale yellow, small layer of white bubbles. Rustic dried grapefruit aroma, pleasant woody nose like Pride of Ringwood. Very clean lemony malt, melon and pollen hops, brisk and nicely balanced. incutrav (577) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2007
On tap at the brewery. Good stuff, new brew from these guys. Nothin offensive, another good pale ale. Nothin really stood out, but it sure was tasty while sitting in the beer garten listnin to some live tunes! Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2007

Pours a clean light golden color. Aroma is slightly floral hops but not too complex or strong. Taste is carbonated with decent bitterness up front and finishes slightly malty, with minor citrus and caramel notes. Very drinkable and refreshing brew from the brewery next door. capitalbrewer (17) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Pours a deep golden brown with perhaps a tinge of copper. Thin, lingering, head. Hops don’t really come through in the aroma, but a citusy hop bitterness highlights the finish. Very good brew from a very good brewery. islay (2958) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2008
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 aren’t 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. I’m impressed! fidelis83 (2498) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Pours gold with a thin white head that has decent retention. Aroma is mostly citrus, some pine, toast and caramel. Flavor is caramel, citus and cookie dough up front, then a nice toast and cereal grain comes in alon with a some pine to finish it out along with a bread dough, toast and citrus fade. Palate is fairly light and crisp with a creamy entry, off dry finish and light, spritzy carbonation. Nice pale ale, decently hoppy, but has a nice, full malt profile without being overly sweet. It has a nice, clean, crisp and refreshing palate to boot. Awesomely balanced, nice summer quencher for sure. joshmcg000 (388) - Iowa, USA - APR 6, 2015
Pours hazy amber with white head. Aroma is very malty, mostly caramel. Very nice caramel malt character. Little bit of citrus and pine from the hops. Nice well balanced refreshing pale ale.
