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 wasnít expecting much, and this beer didnít offer anything.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Tap: This poured a copper color with a short-lived white head. The aroma is of very sweet malts and fresh grasses. The taste, too, is very sweet, quite caramelly. Thereís kind of a surprising bitter finish. Itís not bad.

jgb9348 (5482) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
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 Yearís Day 2014 (January 1st) in my hotel room here in Clearwater, Florida.

Skyview (5464) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2007
Capitalís 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.

In the aroma its caramel malts and a noticeable hoppiness. The flavor is hoppy and slightly grainy with a lingering caramel malty finish. A very good amber, easy to drink but also with a pretty good flavor.

thedm (5438) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 23, 2003
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.

beerguy101 (5351) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Tasted on tap. This amber pours a medium brown color. Small sized beige foamy head. Aroma is caramel and sweet, touch of bread. A medium bodied amber. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are slightly floral. There is a touch of sourness to this amber that sets it slightly apart from the typical brewpub amber. A very drinkable amber, hate to say this but its NOT boring, almost. Mouthfeel is full. Finish in clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

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.

2005 bottle from Robertsreality, who sent me practically every Capital beer! Orange golden body, bit of a chill haze, though not as hazy as the other capitals Iíve had. Off-white head is immediately dissipating to nothing. Aroma has lots of lightly sour yeast, bits of hard vienna malt and old bread. I wasnt as sold on this one as the others. A little bit meaty, quite sour/sweet, with too much breadiness, and light buttercream. Medium to medium-light body. Not a bad balance and a somewhat watery, though pleasing, drinkable mouthfeel. Moderate to low carbonation. I usually love all yeast flavors, perhaps itís some acidic mash flavors that I donít like? Not sure. Will have to try again.
