This is an excellent Vienna...not quite in Elliot Ness territory but close...it is an extremely clean looking dark gold in color...it pours a frothy white head....nice malty biscuit aroma...the mouthfeel is outstanding...a great balance...you get virtually no hops on the nose but they are definitely present on the palate....german style flavor of hops...very thirst quenching...some nice toastiness on the buds..an excellent beer...

This brew has a nice light copper color and good off-white head. The aromas are very biscuity and roasty. The predominant flavors are sweet and roasted malt with a stale hop aftertaste. The stale aftertaste overshadows the rest of the brew. Quite disappointing.

It poured a medium copper color and formed a nice, white bubbly head. Left little lace. An aroma of hops and citrus. It had a flavor of hops and malt with some citrus. It had a slightly hoppy finish. Not a bad beer.

Aroma predominantly malty with mild hop backing. Medium sized head that dissapates rather quickly. Clear with an orange-amber color. Nice soft malt beginning that builds in complexity to the mild dry hop finish. Some lingering of the hops. Mouthfeel is good with a little creaminess and noticable carbonation. This is fine for style, but I prefer others better.

A very good amber. Excellent malt presence with a lighter than expected finish. I can see this being a session brew for folks in Wisconsin while watching Badger football games. Reminded me of a lighter version of New Belgium's Fat Tire.

Pours a perfectly clear amber with a decent white sticky head that has good retention. A really nice deep sweet maltiness on the nose. Very nice toasted quality. A nice clean caramel malt presence. Very little hop presence. Medium body and very drinkable. Definitely one of my favorite Amber Lagers. Another great lager from Capital.
