   Have you had a chance to try New Glarus' Spotted Cow?  I think
of that as a CAP, though I believe it is actually an ale-- IIRC
the label calls it something like a "farmhouse ale," with the
implication that that was what was brewed awhile back on heartland
   My only experience with CAP was at the Great Taste 1.5 years
ago.  I tried at least a half-dozen of them, and was surprised
at the range of flavor, especially hopping.  (Am looking forward
to  MCAB and the chance to try yours!)
