Exceeded my expectations. Good character and pretty hoppy for a Wisconsin beer. Tastes of Strong barley presence, sweet malty finish. Too darn fizzy though. Not bad stuff, would make a hell of a session beer

There are way too many bland, uninteresting ambers out there and this one stands out dramatically as not of that ilk. A very satisfying and well balanced warmth of flavour, peach preserves and hoppiness on slightly toasted, very hearty bread.

I bought a bunch of Capital stuff for my momís sixtieth birthday bash, and it was a capital choice. This one was right up there with the best Ambers Iíve had - rich and flavorful with a powerful, robust, almost nutty malt action well egded with spicy hops. Nicely done.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2005 This would make an excellent session brew-very sweet aroma with a sweet malt palate-finish is hoppy, but subtle. This is a good and interesting beer, but there are so many of this style. This beer is pretty hoppy for a Vienna. nice sweet caramel malt notes throught the palate. a well balanced session lager. this beer pours orange with a small white head. aroma of sweet malts and light citric hops.

Pleasant sweet hoppy aroma. Very well balanced flavor and a crisp sweet finish. Very good example of an amber ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this brew in a bottle. Light nose of caramel and flowers. Pours a sparkling copper.
The off-white creamy head is mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Malty start, floral
middle, long bittersweet caramel finish. Moderate acidity. The medium creamy body has
a lively amount of carbonation bordering on fizzy. The finish feels astringent. Must allow
the brew to warm 10 degrees or so from the fridge to get a full grasp of the aroma and

Orange amber color with a moderate off white head. Mild hops and caramel aroma. Light caramel in the flavor tending to a moderate bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

Is the beer half full or half empty. Ok, well now the beer is all gone, so I need another.
