12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours dark clear brown with ruby hints. The aroma is sweet lager and fruits and the flavor is typical sweet flavors with slight roast. The mouthfeel is medium carbonation with a slight creaminess.

Label said Capital Dark Lager, I’ll assume this is that beer unless I hear otherwise. Cola-like pour with a short off-white head and minimal lacing. Toasty malts and sugary sweetness along with some light spice. The flavor was nutty and toasted malts with a touch of sweetness. Thin body with lots of carbonation.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2012 Very dark with an earthy taste. Our original garden brau according to label. A lager not an ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aggressively smoky malt and considerable tree-bark bitterness with a mismatched palate that’s watery and fizzy like diet soda. Alcohol comes through in the finish. Adjuncty sweetness builds up in the mouth throughout the drink and sticks around.

Nice malty nose. The flavor seemed rather thin with a smokey taste predominant. Beer may have been old, noting a metallic taste that diminished as I took a few sips.

Bummer. I had such high expectations for this beer since the Capital Brewery usually gets quite high marks. They brew some really ODD beers, too, like a rice beer. Cool. Anyway, on to the subject at hand: it was a bit bitter and just didn’t get me enthused like it should’ve. I didn’t get that much malt flavor out of it. Have a Xingu instead.

Decent dunkel. Capital can be hit or miss with their German-styled lagers, this one is middle of the road, however.

I think the commercial deScription on here makes the beer all that more not special. Pour was very dark clear amber with a forced very light tan head. Aroma was of light malt and maybe some hops and slight corn. Taste was a bit better with an average malt bill along with a hint of nuts and toffee. Was very smooth and quite refreshing. Not an over-powering beer at all. Decent but nothing special. Probably won’t purchase again.
