Wisconsin Amber is the flagship beer for Capital Brewery. I purchased a single of this from a local grocery store and it was bottled on July 10th.

It pours an amber hue with a decent amount of carbonation and a two inch head that unfortunately dissipates pretty quickly.

The aroma is pretty sweet with hints of caramel and honey. There is a bit of grain as well.

The flavor stays on the sweet side with the caramel and honey present but there is also a touch of molasses . The finish is still quite sweet with a bit of bitterness.

Overall this is a decent beer but not something I would buy regularly.

Good amber beer. Rich and savory flavor and yet not to heavy.

S: farily evenly balanced mild malt and hop aromas upon popping the cap. The aromas reveal a clean fermentation character.

L: It pours brilliant orange amber with rapidly rising bubbles under a 1" cream colored foam cap with moderate retention.

T: Rich malts start the flavor with a grainy spicyness that suggests cardamom. An initial malt sweetness dries slightly with some mild bitterness in the finish. It finishes with a slight sweetness.

F: The beer has medium body and medium high to high carbonation.

O: Overall the malt is a little on the low side, the carbonation is a little high, it finishes a little too sweet and it is a little low on character.
