Malty, sweet aroma. Bittersweet maltiness mingles well with hop flavors on the finish. Ample carbonation but no head; sparklingly clear amber color. Overall, quite satisfying for a brew of this type. Recommended.

I was a bit surprised by this; had it in Madison yesterday at a Mexican restaurant not knowing much about it, and it turned out to be one of the best Ambers I've had. Lots of malty character, very sweet and caramel-like, but with just enough hops to keep it from going Scotch Ale on you. Could have more character in the nose, but not much to complain about.

I bought a bunch of Capital stuff for my mom's sixtieth birthday bash, and it was a capital choice. This one was right up there with the best Ambers I've had - rich and flavorful with a powerful, robust, almost nutty malt action well egded with spicy hops. Nicely done.

Nice malty aroma. Good malt flavor, balanced by a good hop backbone. Good style representation.

clear copper/amber, small head. mild, sweet aroma--almost like coca-cola. full body of sweet malt with a smooth transition into a complex hoppy finish. solid body; very enjoyable.

In the aroma its caramel malts and a noticeable hoppiness. The flavor is hoppy and slightly grainy with a lingering caramel malty finish. A very good amber, easy to drink but also with a pretty good flavor.
