I'll rate the 2001 version. I really like this recipe. A nice copper color with a solid head. This year's seems to be a little young and could have used a few more weeks of lagering, ah the pressures of getting shelf space. A really nice malt flavor, I believe begium aromatic malts give this smooth mouth feel (kind of like rye). I look forward to tapping the keg in my refrigerator in a few weeks to see if the extra aging help.

It seems like all of the Capital beers are starting to taste the same, which isn't a bad thing. A bit too mild to be classified as a winter brew, the mix of malt and hops is great as always. Also seems a bit pale in appearance.

A nice malty taste and aroma. Now I am ready for winter....................

Malty (amber style) aroma. The color of a slightly used penny, although quite clear and brilliant. Normal head/carbonation. Somewhat like a cross between an American Amber and a British Bitter Style. (Is it an ESB?) Slightly sweet caramel amber flavors, quickly giving way to somewhat spicy hops. Rather dry finish. Medium bodied.

Decently malty lager with odd spicy notes. Tastes like ther is a little bit of nutmeg present, which is odd considering that the label does not claim that the beer is spiced.
