COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A solid, malt emphasized lager, the firey hued richness perfectly balanced by clean hop bittering.

Dark Amber. Diminishing head. I'm having a hard time describing this. Pretty typical for the style but something's not quite right. I found this a little too thin on the palate and overly malty with some metallic off notes resulting from fizzy carbonation. It not bad. It just doesn't sit right with me.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2003 Great orange color, nice head, crystal clear. Does not have the malt taste like a true Vienna, so it is not as heavy. Not as good or as true to the style as Lakefront or Great Lakes. This is a great six pack beer. rerate: Had a bottle from their summer tour pack and the one thing I noticed that I can not believe I missed was the pine aroma. It was like walking in a big evergreen forest. I dont know if this bottle was fresher than the 6-pack I had previously to get such a strong pine aroma. If it is then this would not make a good session beer as the pine aroma would be too much to handle for more than a couple of them.

Beautiful beer with tremendous clarity. As with many Viennas, the aroma is a bit lacking, but the malt flavor is delicious and contained perfectly in its body. Very nice. Not quite as good as Lakefront or Great Lakes, but obviously well made. Thanks to Howie--big time.

Amber color with a thin white head. Good aroma is greeted by a sweet malt finish balanced by a moderate hop flavor. A little thin in body. Very satisfying.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2005 Good session lager, ubiquitous around Madison, so itís a good choice in places where the only alternative is BMC.

Bottle. Dark amber with a tan head. Toasted malt flavor. Malt and hop aroma.

GermanBrews76 (678) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2002
Exceeded my expectations. Good character and pretty hoppy for a Wisconsin beer. Tastes of Strong barley presence, sweet malty finish. Too darn fizzy though. Not bad stuff, would make a hell of a session beer

There are way too many bland, uninteresting ambers out there and this one stands out dramatically as not of that ilk. A very satisfying and well balanced warmth of flavour, peach preserves and hoppiness on slightly toasted, very hearty bread.

I bought a bunch of Capital stuff for my momís sixtieth birthday bash, and it was a capital choice. This one was right up there with the best Ambers Iíve had - rich and flavorful with a powerful, robust, almost nutty malt action well egded with spicy hops. Nicely done.

Very good. One of the best beers in the area.
