Not overwhelmingly great, but a good solid pint of beer. Pours darkish amber with a bit of a white head. Good lacing down the glass. More heavy malted, roasted flavors and a bit of bitter in the end to balance it out.

Draft. Copper color with thin off-white head and some lacing. Toasted malt aroma with biscuit notes. Sweet, toasted biscuit flavor. Medium-long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The caramel malts dominate the aroma to be like, duh, caramel, though there’s just a hint of fruit, maybe cherries? The taste is sweet throughout and there can be a chocolatey finish. Tasted from a bottle.

wxman (1474) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Pours a clear pale amber/orange with an antique lace head that sticks around and laces the glass. Caramel and grass aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, buttered toast, a light grassy character and mild hop bitterness.

TXBadger (1512) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2014
Pours a dark amber color, with nice off-white head. Very rich and malty, caramel and toasty flavors. Just a little pine on the finish to add just the right amount of bitterness for a cold Wisconsin winter evening.

JonnyMadison (46) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2014
Bottle. Light and refreshing for a winter beer. Good off-white head and copper color. Simple and drinkable, but slightly lackluster if you are looking for something unique and flavorful.

RRistow12 (269) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear amber with white head. Lot of lacing on sides of the glass. Nice aroma of toffee and caramel. Great aroma for amber lager. Taste is sweet with toffee, caramel and a little bit of spice. Medium bodied with a sticky mouthfeel. Great amber lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - FEB 22, 2014
A pale amber pour with about a half finger of off white head. Aroma is toasted malt, slight notes of toffee, and spiced caramel. Taste is average, sweet with a medium duration and uninspiring finish. Overall a decent winter beer but not the best offering from Capital

BeerInHeaven (151) - 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.

beerbaaron (1337) - Arizona, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Pours clear attractive ruby amber, medium creamy white head, lasting with lace. Aroma is malty, caramel, bready. Flavor about the same thing. Medium body. Restrained dryness. A beer to get drunk and a watch Aaron Rodgers come back and beat the loser bears to get into the playoffs!! Suck it bears!!

aroma is malty, caramel, bread, sweet, old shoes (no offense) Taste is similar, but a little smoother. Fairly malty, caramel, bready, smooth finish.
