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

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 it’s 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 (679) - 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 mom’s sixtieth birthday bash, and it was a capital choice. This one was right up there with the best Ambers I’ve 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.

Terminus (3316) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - NOV 6, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2005 This would make an excellent session brew-very sweet aroma with a sweet malt palate-finish is hoppy, but subtle. This is a good and interesting beer, but there are so many of this style. This beer is pretty hoppy for a Vienna. nice sweet caramel malt notes throught the palate. a well balanced session lager. this beer pours orange with a small white head. aroma of sweet malts and light citric hops.

Pleasant sweet hoppy aroma. Very well balanced flavor and a crisp sweet finish. Very good example of an amber ale.
