pours a clear amber color with a nice white head that hangs around for a bit, a small bit of hops and malt aroma with the hops coming apparent in the taste along with a nice sweet carmel flavor...a nice beer that would be a second to wisconsin's best vienna...Lakefront Riverwest...good beer otherwise

UPDATED: APR 22, 2008 Pretty good stuff. I did like the smooth malty flavor coupled with slight hops. Sweet and drinkable. Malts are a little chewy. Well balanced beer and a perfect grilling beer. On tap Hoover Ave. Ale House.

Copper brew, white head. Not outstanding, but good as one would expect. Smells of malt, a little like toasted sourdough. Taste is smooth, medium mouthfeel. A little on the roasty side, and a perfect session brew. Cheers to Capital as my first brew this Christmas day, 2003.

Wow! I have to say I’m 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.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 This is an enjoyable amber. Nice caramel malty aroma and a clear red appearance with a soft white head. Taste mirrors the aroma and appearance. Notes of cereal and bread with a slight caramel sweetness. Drinkable session amber.

Bottle. Decent looking beer. Amber shade of golden yellow. Retains head well. Taste of carmel, banana, grain, maple. For some reason I am tasting similar characteristics of New Glauras’s stone soup. Some bitterness which seemed to linger. I’m not overly excited but not bad.

Pours amber with a very lively head. Malty/bitter earthy smell. Tastes very crisp and refreshing. Not much of a body though. Almost too bland for me. But if its hot out and your thirsty, this beats the piss outta Gatorade.
