Smeared coppery honey gold color; small, dense capping of slightly off-white foam. Lacing is minimal in a few inky strings.

Aroma is fair and rounded in a lightly breadish malt tone with a hint of grassyness and toasted grains.

Flavors are nice and smooth with a firm maltyness. No surprise coming from Capital, kinda chewy, softly bready with a slight toasted fit among some tighter fitting herbal grassyness as it rolls into the finish with a nice whole grain touch and herbal spicing. The balance is supremely solid and I really like the maltyness this has. It's tenderly backsided with sweetness while having a nice little notion of toasted stuff and letting the herbal grassyness float through.

Body is quite nice, smooth, firm, creamy, and approaching a decent fullness the whole way through. Light carbonation and a nice little grab of flavors to eager it up and keep just enough interest to keep it simple, delightful, and drinkable. A wonderful brew by Capital! I could drink it all day until the cows come home...

Poured into my Carolina Spring Bock pint glass. Brillaing gold, slightly cloudy, chance of snow and looks like some landed atop in and is hanging around for the duration. Aroma of toasty, graing sweet malt with faint English (Goldings?) hops.

I could session this one - starts out with a very nice blending of honeyish toasty malt, some faint but delectable grains, and a firm undelying bitterness along with a tetch of alcohol. Gets stickier as it goes along, with a faint apple like sweetness alongside the aforementioned flavors. Finishes bitter on the tongue but with residual grainy honeylike sweetness. Nice chewy mouthfeel. Could do growlers of this all night long.

Forget if this was from Furley or Tip Top - either way, thanks!!!
