When I'm looking for a simple uncomplicated beer to enjoy without getting my senses assaulted a good golden ale fits the bill.
Old Capital (4.00% ABV) by Keegan Ales is just such a beer.
It pours a hazy golden color with a small cap of foam that leaves behind little to no lacing.
The aroma is malty, mildly grainy, and almost savory.
That taste is pretty low-key. Grain and malt are the dominant flavors. Almost no hops are detectable. The finish is clean.
The mouth feel is light with tingly carbonation.
Old Capital is a good sessionable beer so you can safely drink a few without getting sloppy drunk. It's light, crisp, and quaffable. If you're looking for a flavor bomb then this isn't the beer for you.
