This seasonal beer poured with a quick foamy head and a walnut color. After initial distaste, the flavor grew on me quickly. Kind of sour at first, but the aftertaste is something special.

"Interesting" caramel malt flavor. Maybe it was competeing with previous samlpings as much as I attempted to clense pallet. Very middle of the road. Not bad, not great.

Draught: clear, lightly golden amber. Fizzy, persistent head. Outrageous mouthfeel - over carbonated (even for me, I really enjoy tingly palates) The flavours developed wonderfully - hay and grass, thick gooey malts. . . peppery finish that leaves the mouth a little confused: is this a moist, mouth watering brew, or a dry elegant sipper? I liked it.

Toasted caramelly nose. Amber color and no head. Sweet sugary malt with some toastedness. Long metallic dry finish. Thinish, but overall pleasant.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Clear, bright amber-y color, huge head, tapioca-like, effervescent and slow to crumble down. Aroma: nice! Uplifting, arousing, soft, and sweet, immediate notes of spices, but stonger impressions of fruits, peach, apricot, etc., and yeasty, too, like an oddly spiced fruity bread. No, I mean it! Big with the malt, and delicious. Now, to taste... Lusciously fills the mouth, sweetly greets the tongue, hapily floods the palate, very smooth, very tasty. Thick and substantial, a warm and rewarding brew. I'd forgotten how good this is, and I need to head out and restock before it goes away again. I tried it last year and thought, :"eh, I don't like "winter lagers"...now, I don't know what I was thinking then, this is just about perfect. Gets spicier and fruitier, without going too far, lush malts continue. Body and finish are both around medium, but the tasty flavor is what shines brightest. With any luck, this will be my spring beer this season...

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2005 Translucent amber color with quickly dissipating white head. Somewhat piney & malty aroma, although weak. Moderate hoppy taste with a decent amount of bitterness, a little too carbonated for my tastes. Overall, good & drinkable. One of the better Capital brews.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Deep clear- amber in color, has a nice white head that doesn't last very long, light malty bready aroma. Sweet caramel malty flavor, mild hop profile it does have a nice clean finish, light to medium body, seems kind of bland and watery, overall not all that bad but average.

light amber color with an off white head diminishes quickly, malt, fruit, and sweet aroma...malt comes through in the flavor with a subtle butterscotch and very light bitterness, light body with slight carbonation and quite smooth finish...very drinkable
