RRistow12 (778) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear amber with white head. Lot of lacing on sides of the glass. Nice aroma of toffee and caramel. Great aroma for amber lager. Taste is sweet with toffee, caramel and a little bit of spice. Medium bodied with a sticky mouthfeel. Great amber lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - FEB 22, 2014
A pale amber pour with about a half finger of off white head. Aroma is toasted malt, slight notes of toffee, and spiced caramel. Taste is average, sweet with a medium duration and uninspiring finish. Overall a decent winter beer but not the best offering from Capital

BeerInHeaven (423) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 21, 2014
pours a slightly murky copper with a medium off white head. Some wispy lacing. definite biscuit with some grass aroma. Really smooth clean taste with some bitterness on the end. A little hop presence on the finish. Nicely balanced drinkable brew.

beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Pours clear attractive ruby amber, medium creamy white head, lasting with lace. Aroma is malty, caramel, bready. Flavor about the same thing. Medium body. Restrained dryness. A beer to get drunk and a watch Aaron Rodgers come back and beat the loser bears to get into the playoffs!! Suck it bears!!

jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Caramel and winter spices with loads of cereal grains packed in. Drinkable, but nothing too special.

At game. Hoping for something richer. Spicy, bitter, and thin. Not much else to say...

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2013
12/06/13 trade from Jamil. Weak scent, barely a hit of caramel. Pleasing appearance of rich bronze color with a big foamy head. Lighter medium feel. Malty flavor with a touch of hops, not that exciting overall. Blah. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tmoreau (4090) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass showing a clear, coppery amber color, frothy, cream toned head foam, and wavy cling to the lacing. The aroma was smooth, lightly toasted & sweet malt, light grain, with a touch of caramel & vanilla? The flavor was similar, adding moderate hop bitterness, a light to medium body, mild dryness, and a bit of lingering alcohol warmth to complement the decent malt character.
