3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass showing a clear, coppery amber color, frothy, cream toned head foam, and wavy cling to the lacing. The aroma was smooth, lightly toasted & sweet malt, light grain, with a touch of caramel & vanilla? The flavor was similar, adding moderate hop bitterness, a light to medium body, mild dryness, and a bit of lingering alcohol warmth to complement the decent malt character.

Light Copper, Good Head And Lots Of Lacing. First impression - watery. Barely noticeable hops, malt. While nothing fancy it is rather pleasant and enjoyable. Easy to drink. Good.

Pour a copper light red color with no appreciable head. Nose is nothing but grainy and metallic, a lager of course !Nothing but a tasteless and flvorless brew, but I am a lager hater, still trying to develop a taste for these flavorless, boring beers. All I can say is more HOPS. But it will rate it keeping in ming it is what it is..........A LAGER ! Quaff Score 4 / 10

Pours copper with a small beige head and aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Taste is light, of toasted malt, grains, caramel, and bread notes with a medium finish. Light and not much flavor, but then again it’s a lager

Kopparfärgad öl med ett smutsvitt skum. Doften är ganska söt med inslag av nötter. Även smaken är söt, för söt för mig. Dragning åt mörkt socker och torkad frukt.

Not much of an aroma but pleasantly surprising taste. Full-bodied warming beer. Great beer to enjoy in front of a fireplace.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of sweet caramel. Crystal clear, amber in color thin head. Slightly toffe like caramel intitial bite, mellows a bit with some sweetness. Finishes with slight bitterness and a not so smooth stale flavor. Not sure why a vienna is used as a winter seasonal...Vienna is one of my favorite styles...I’ve just had better versions.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cereal-malt aroma, with a UK hop/ale thing going. Clear, tawny gold with a formidable, long-lasting white head. Great label, only appearance ding was for the twistoff. Mellow, malty swig. Implied diacetyl -- like a Bohemian Pilsener done right. Sweetish, mildly bittered, very lightly briny, a little tangy. Mouthy. Just damn enjoyable. Look, I don’t like lagers much -- I’m an ale man -- don’t like bock, don’t like pils, don’t like anything much but schwarzbier. I’ve had a lot of different beers - I just want to go on record as saying that the Capital guys are the best in the business when it comes to lagers. This is top-notch, without being pretentious. Capital guys - stick this feather in your cap. I’m going back for a sixpack.
