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 I’m no longer writing home about it. But I’m thinking they are selling a lot more of this flagship style these days, so it’s moved towards more mass appeal. But I’m 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
