UPDATED: AUG 2, 2010 Canned, Aug 2, 2010. Revisiting this beer after 7 years and in a new canned package. Pours a nice presentation in a Sam Adams glass: Light amber color, rich malty head that turns into rocky foam after well over a minute. Smell is kind of nondeScript, compared to my enthusiasm back in my year of rating. Taste is malty and pretty smooth, a little lager bite here and there. Okay, so Iím no longer writing home about it. But Iím thinking they are selling a lot more of this flagship style these days, so itís moved towards more mass appeal. But Iím fine with seeing more local brew in cans. Bottled. Aug 7, 2003. A pleasing little malty brew. Nice beery aroma when you crack the bottle. Pours like most bottled beer, with an even head that fades to a nice little lace. A roasty malt taste brings notes of caramel or molasses. Hops flavor very mild. Again, a fine representative of the style, and I hope Capital will sometime take the chance to do something a little more extreme. Original rating: 7-3-7-4-14=3.5

drsordr (1673) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle pour dark gold, not really amber. Nose sweet crystal malt, light earthy hop. Taste sweeter malt up front and then light grainy malt late. Nothing off putting but nothing outstanding either. Fairly clean drinking for an amber

JonnyMadison (84) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle. Very fragrant. Crisp hops cut through at first, with a bitter taste, but it smooths out nicely and finishes with a roasted caramel flavor. Aftertaste is a bit dry, but overall a nice amber lager.

Bottle - Pours a deep, clear copper/amber with a small,creamy, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of a sweet bread. Sweet malt flavors, low carbonation, and a clean finish. Interesting, but not my style.

Clean malty sweet honey aroma. Pours crystal clear copper amber with a thin quickly fading off white head. Earthy, malty, woody. Thin mouthfeel. Light bodied. A little bitter edge on the finish. Not bad.
