COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A solid, malt emphasized lager, the firey hued richness perfectly balanced by clean hop bittering.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2004
Clear amber (big surprise there) with a quickly diminishing medium off white head. Slightly hoppy aroma with caramel, bread and a hint of apple. Light medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very smooth and refreshing. A light flavor of caramel, apple, spice, and a hint of roast. Decent, but not memorbale.

DCopperfields (145) - Alabama, USA - DEC 25, 2003
Copper brew, white head. Not outstanding, but good as one would expect. Smells of malt, a little like toasted sourdough. Taste is smooth, medium mouthfeel. A little on the roasty side, and a perfect session brew. Cheers to Capital as my first brew this Christmas day, 2003.

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2003
Bottle pours a (you guessed it) amber color with decent head and some lace. The aroma is malty and mildly hoppy. The flavor was a nice clean lager flavor with a touch of dopplebock sour in the finish. Overall, I liked it real well, as I consumed six of them at my cousin's graduation party this afternoon at the University of Wisconsin's Memorial Union. Good session beer.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Nice beer to keep around the house. I wish they sold 12 packs. Has a dark amber color and a thin head. Aroma is slightly soapy.

djmcfar (64) - Ixonia, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2003
aroma fruity, sweet, slightly hoppy; non-uniform larger than medium head (tan)- dark amber color; flavor -excellent hoppiness (but not over-powering)- sweetness accompanies slight bitterness - complex finish - easy to drink - ABV not listed, Id guess around 5.5 (could be higher)

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 29, 2003
Wow what a cascade. Darker in colour with a nice frothy tan head. Obvious malts in the nose with a clean, somewhat one dimensional, malty kinda hoppy kinda caramely flavour. Overall quite delightfull and fun.

BATLMULLET (127) - Highland, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Very middle of the road overall, but above average mouthfeel. An over-session beer. They used to sell this beer in CANS...how cool is that?

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - OCT 12, 2003
Even though my opinion of this beer is that it could use some character to it, it was indeed a good beer to drink and rate. It poured a small sized ivory creamy and smooth head. The body was carbonated and clear with an amber hue. The nose was malty, fruity and some caramel notes. The flavor was sweet along with a bitter taste. The mouthfeel was smooth, tingly, thin textured, watery and light bodied. It left a good lacing on the sides of my glass.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2003
Deep tan, not much head. Nose is malty, some sweetness. Is very sweet and sugary, lots of malts. A bit too sweet, tastes a bit like a Vienna with some Ovaltine added in for some sugary chocolate goodness. Decent, but couldn't put too many away.

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 23, 2003
This brew poured a medium sized head of fine to large sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a transparent carbonated light brown colored body. The aroma is a medium strength malt hop one. It had a smooth mouthfeel with a slight hop bite in the finish. THe flavors in this brew contain elements of malt caramel and mild hops. Although need ing a bit more character to make it better, it is definately a fine beer that I would not mind sitting around drinking with a few friends.
