UPDATED: APR 22, 2008 Pretty good stuff. I did like the smooth malty flavor coupled with slight hops. Sweet and drinkable. Malts are a little chewy. Well balanced beer and a perfect grilling beer. On tap Hoover Ave. Ale House.

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.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 This is an enjoyable amber. Nice caramel malty aroma and a clear red appearance with a soft white head. Taste mirrors the aroma and appearance. Notes of cereal and bread with a slight caramel sweetness. Drinkable session amber.

Wow! I have to say I’m surprised by this.
Floral smells envelope this amber ale. At first
taste, more floral accents followed by a great balance
of amber type malting and hops.

Bottle. Decent looking beer. Amber shade of golden yellow. Retains head well. Taste of carmel, banana, grain, maple. For some reason I am tasting similar characteristics of New Glauras’s stone soup. Some bitterness which seemed to linger. I’m not overly excited but not bad.

Pours amber with a very lively head. Malty/bitter earthy smell. Tastes very crisp and refreshing. Not much of a body though. Almost too bland for me. But if its hot out and your thirsty, this beats the piss outta Gatorade.

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?
