Capital Brewery’s flagship — and the perfect companion beer. A moderately rich malty lager, balanced with moderate hop bittering plus a slight hop zing in the finish. Zing!
I had the Wisconsin Amber from a 12oz bottle poured into a fancy Drink Wisconsinbly pint glass.
This beer has a flavor that leans toward the sweet side, with tastes of caramel, 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. I really dig the nose on this Amber. Very clean with subtle hints of complexity. And it tasted really good. So there's that.
HOPS – Mount Hood & Cascade
MALTS – Brewers, Caramel Aromatic & Special
