This is truly a great beer made by an awesome brewery. Its a shame I'm not closer to Wisconsin. I'd consume everything they put out. Amber was a terrific beer. Great Taste. Good head out of bottle. Smooth, sweet and hoppy all at the same time. If you haven't had this one you're missing out.

Thick head with a creamy, golden hue to it. This brew is extra malty. There are hops but theyíre hidden in the back by the robust maltyness. A little more after taste would be nice. This is rather similar to Sprecher Special Amber, though I like this one better!

Wow! I have to say Iím 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.

Hi All, I would rate the Capital Amber over the ambers from Sprecher and New Glarus! and the rest of the Wisconsin Micros Wine man59

Sweet, palatable, easy finish. Wish we had it down in NC, one of my favorites. Similar to leinenkugel with the flavor notes and high quality.

Much tastier then Nordeast or Yuengling! Great early fall beer. Lots of sweet malty flavor balanced with great hops that doesnt overpower.

Iím a big fan of amber beers and iím kinda picky about them too. One of the better ambers iíve had the oppurtunity to drink. Iíd would definately recommend it.

To say the least, this beer kicked ass. I love itís strong malt backbone and wonderful almost chewy mouthfeel. This beer I could drink and drink and not get tired of. I knew they could do something besides cheese.
