Capital Brewery – Winter Skål

Winter SkalA SOLID AND ACTUALLY INTERESTING amber ale, going halfway as a winter warmer. Sturdy, moderately roasted barley presence, very faintly reminiscent of barleywine, with just enough hops (Liberty again, an apropos favorite for a brewery so named) in the finish to balance out a nuttiness dominant until then. Foamy head, full-bodied, could have used a bit more effervescence.
