Capital’s flagship brand! Picked up a single bottle from Cellars LexLarp. Pours a rich, deep amber color with an average off-white head. Good lace. Aroma of tasted malt, caramel, and some spice. Taste of medium malt and more hops than average Vienna. Water finish. An above average amber vienna.

Nice beer to keep around the house. I wish they sold 12 packs. Has a dark amber color and a thin head. Aroma is slightly soapy.

This brew poured a medium sized head of fine to large sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a transparent carbonated light brown colored body. The aroma is a medium strength malt hop one. It had a smooth mouthfeel with a slight hop bite in the finish. THe flavors in this brew contain elements of malt caramel and mild hops. Although need ing a bit more character to make it better, it is definately a fine beer that I would not mind sitting around drinking with a few friends.

Orange amber color with a moderate off white head. Mild hops and caramel aroma. Light caramel in the flavor tending to a moderate bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

Amber coloured body with a a copper glow at the bottom and a very thin half-centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt, light sugar, very minimal hops and a nice fresh grain scent. Light-bodied; Nice fresh malt flavour with a good toasty flavour, some light wheat and a strong caramel and toffee finish. Aftertaste is mellow and subdued with only a little toffee and nutty flavours making things bitter, but the malt and light grain stays throughout. Overall, a nice light beer with some solid flavours and nothing bitter or offputting. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased on 30-December-2013 for US$2.39 from Corner Store (Bait and Tackle) in West Palm Beach, Florida sampled on New Year’s Day 2014 (January 1st) in my hotel room here in Clearwater, Florida.

12oz bottle. Filtered orange-amber color with minimal head. Odd, awkward amber-caramel aroma. Hmm..Id have to assume this is old. Off pungent amber malt, maybe some nutty flavor in there too. Somewhat like Killians, somewhat like a macro Oktoberfest. Off bottle.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2004 Looks good, huge cream colored head. Beer is amber. Fruit aroma is ruined by alcohol. Some malt in the flavor with a a little hops. Being a Vienna, I wasn’t expecting much, and this beer didn’t offer anything.

Can: Clear, light amber with a frothy, light tan head. Toffee malt aroma. Toffee/caramel taste...a little toast. Light, creamy. Rather tasty.

Had on tap at the brass tap, served in a pint glass. Had an amazing amber hue that made my mouth water. Smell of some sweet malt and some caramel. Tated just like the smell, caramel at first then some bitterness and hops after. Solid brew, would have again.
