A: As usual, this beer has amazing clarity. Great lagering effect. Medium lacing with an offwhite head. Wouldnt call it amber in color, more orange to red.
S: Not much doing here, husky grainy in smell.
T: What seems to be a consistent feature for this brewery is fizzy in the nose with a touch of jazz and then by the time the middle comes around, its quit. The aftertaste in the finish however has a nice nutty character to it, which I have found lacking in most of Capital's beers I recently tried.
M: carbonation fizz on the tongue, doesnt last long as I would prefer it, but very light and drinkable.
D: Wouldnt choose it for the style, but would drink it to drink in the sun.

Poured from its silver can, this amber ale offers a nose of caramel malt, toasted malt, and molasses. Its color is orange/copper and the body is completely clear.
This beer has a flavor that leans toward the sweet side, with tastes of caramel, bread, light roast, dough, toffee, and a touch of brown sugar. The hops impart a slightly herbal character, although they are buried behind the taste of the malt.
This seems like a basic amber brew with enough going for it to recommend, but not enough going for it to strike an emotional chord or otherwise stand out in one’s beer drinking memory. I warmed up to it more with repeated sips and I now appreciate this beer for what it is- an everyday amber beer that is non- pretentious and agreeable, even if not exceptional. Some may say it is underwhelming, but it does have enough going for it to recommend.

3.19/5 rDev -10.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25
Light, transparent, orange-amber color lager. Soda-like head on the pour with little retention.
Fresh, malty aroma with hints of citrus fruits and fresh cut grass.
Slightly roasted malt flavor. Almonds and toast. Touch of caramel. Rice and corn adjuncts. Mild herbal hop.
Light body. Descent carbonation. Grainy texture.
Ok, but just doesn't have that much flavor or body. Fairly refreshing, however.
