Here’s a lager that really does beg to be consumed during the summer, at the lake house or on the stoop listening to a ball game on the radio.  I still want you to pour it into a glass.    Lake House, from Capital Brewery in Middleton, WI, is straw colored and well carbonated, enough so to regenerate a filmy head throughout the entire time it takes you to drink one.  The clean bouquet has hints of sweetness and mild sulphury hop oils.  It’s sharp and lively on the tongue, and the initial sweetness ends with a tad of bitterness.  Exhale through your nose after a gulp for a good dose of malt, or at least as a way of appreciating some of the malt subtleties that might be missed otherwise.

I like it, you’ll like it too.  A good summer beer.
