Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Tap: This poured a copper color with a short-lived white head. The aroma is of very sweet malts and fresh grasses. The taste, too, is very sweet, quite caramelly. There’s kind of a surprising bitter finish. It’s not bad.

Tasted on tap. This amber pours a medium brown color. Small sized beige foamy head. Aroma is caramel and sweet, touch of bread. A medium bodied amber. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are slightly floral. There is a touch of sourness to this amber that sets it slightly apart from the typical brewpub amber. A very drinkable amber, hate to say this but its NOT boring, almost. Mouthfeel is full. Finish in clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Draft on tap at Dotty Dumpling’s Dowry (Madison, WI). Pours a crisp amber hue, decent haze, some fiery sun within. A moderate frothy offwhite head sits atop, laces well, dies to a firm head, small but undaunting. Aromas are some crisp amber caramel malts, pale malts, touches of toast, brewers grains, and a light floral hopping. Served a bit too cold, as it warms some more aromatics, bread and toast. Initial is lighter bodied, some caramel, but largely bread, dough, touches of toast, with light florals and grass. A light bitterness, but grainy and pale malts, with a touch of toast and more substantial touch of toffee rue the day. Light bitter finish, lingering sweetness, a drinkable and easily quaffable Amber, session beer.. That just lacks some life in my book. A clean sessionable beer that lacks complexity and a little life, even for an Amber. Simple, no real spice. Amber.. Vienna.. Either way, it just lacks character.

PorterPounder (5192) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Had on tap at Noah’s Ark Waterpark in Wisconsin Dells, WI. Pours a medium copper, good bubble action and a frothy off-white head. Aroma has a little bit of caramel to it with some fresh lake water accents. Hints of caramel in the flavor with some underlying nuttiness. Sweet, but not sickenly so. Clean, even mouthfeel. Overall, decent.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2007
Capital’s flagship brand! Picked up a single bottle from Cellars LexLarp. Pours a rich, deep amber color with an average off-white head. Good lace. Aroma of tasted malt, caramel, and some spice. Taste of medium malt and more hops than average Vienna. Water finish. An above average amber vienna.

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.

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.

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 20, 2006
Just as amber as all git out. Can’t git no amberer. Nice foamy head. Aroma of caramel and maybe a whiff of iced tea. Rich & smoooove. Mostly sweet, with a note of black pepper.
