A nice malty taste and aroma. Now I am ready for winter.

BeerInHeaven (264) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 21, 2014
pours a slightly murky copper with a medium off white head. Some wispy lacing. definite biscuit with some grass aroma. Really smooth clean taste with some bitterness on the end. A little hop presence on the finish. Nicely balanced drinkable brew.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2003
A clear copper/amber color with a thin white head. Very good nose of malt, caramel and a hint of fruit. The flavor is roughly the same with a bit of green apple. A good beer, although uninspiring.

triguy84 (235) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Pours a clear yellow-gold, thin whispy white head. Subtle phenol aroma, no bitterness, some fruit flavors. Light-medium bodied. Just ok, seems like a light Farmhouse ale.

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Pretty copper hue, with a nice white head, it’s crystal clear. Nice balanced aroma, malty (sweet and nutty), some floral hops, and a crisp and spicey yeast aroma. Good malt flavor upfront, bready then nutty, with mild bitterness. It finishes clean with a sparkling carbonation and a caramel aftertaste. This beer won’t make me excitied for winter as Capital claims, but it may help the time pass more easily.

Pours clear, light brown. Nose of orange peel and cinnamon. Taste is nutty and sour. Good; better colder.

davesarman (159) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2003
Gourgoeous copper color. Nice malty, caramel aroma that is very sturdy and appealing. Medium carbonation and a spritzy head that fades fast. Nice malty back bone, with some very subtle spice notes. Little if any hops, but that seems appropriate in this beer. It's nice having a winter beer that's not all cloves, spices and hops for a change. Nicely done, by a great brewery.

balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - JAN 30, 2004
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
