Capitol Light

Capitol Light

Our American-Style Pilsner is head and shoulders above all other American Pils. Brewed with Pilsner malt and a touch of corn, decently hopped with German Select and Czech-Saaz hops this beer brings together the best of both American and Czech-style Pilsner. This very light colored beer still has some good, hoppy pilsner flavor. 3.9 ABV

Notes:

The nose is a bit spicy and grassy from the late additions of Saaz hops with a slight grainy aroma from the use of Pilsner malt.

The beer pours a very light golden-yellow color with a white head that dissipates quickly. This lager appears lively and leaves a slight lacing down the glass.

Light in body and bright in mouthfeel this is a true craft light lager. Finishes clean with a subtle aftertaste of fresh hay.

Light in flavor this beer at first tastes slightly grainy. The Continental hops provide a good bitter balance to the minimal malt presence with a big of grassy/floral nose on the front end and a light clean finish.
