A solid, malt emphasized lager, the firey hued richness perfectly balanced by clean hop bittering.

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

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.

Scipio (740) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Pours a clear amber with a thinner, long lasting slightly off white head. The aroma is caramel, nuts, yeast, and hints of grapefruit and grassy hops. The taste has is a bit sweet with touches of tartness. Its contains caramel, nuts, bread, and some slight fruitiness. Aftertaste is a short caramel. Medium bodied, slick in texture, and average in carbonation. For some reason, this one is clean and rather easy to drink. But overall, this is probably just your average amber.

Ice cold can at some random festival in Manitowoc WI. Was pleasantly surprised. Way better than Supper Club.

EyeAmBaldman (339) - Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Pours a nice amber with an off-white head. Aroma is malty, but in a good way. This is a medium bodied beer with a surprisingly pleasant taste. Itís not too bitter and not too sweet. Goes down way too easy for an Amber Lager. The bar had it in bottles, and Iíd never heard of it. It was surprisingly good.

Basically, a perfect amber lager. Done the way it should be. Nice roasty character, but balance by some pine notes on the finish. Very clean, easy drinking.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear amber with a decent beige head. Mild aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is malt, citrus, and caramel. Decent session type.
