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

A little too thin and carbonated for me -- it’s like drinking amber pop.

Very nice. Definitely along the Vienna lines of amber than either a hopped up west coast version or a unique eastern, balanced gem like Ithaca. Pretty similar to Lakefront’s Riverwest Stein, and has quality written all over it in its handling of the malts. Hops are there, but minimally. A bit thin and clear.

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.

Wow what a cascade. Darker in colour with a nice frothy tan head. Obvious malts in the nose with a clean, somewhat one dimensional, malty kinda hoppy kinda caramely flavour. Overall quite delightfull and fun.

Thanks to slikwily for this fine extra. Nice amber body with significant carbonation and an off-white head. Aroma of sweet toasted malts, spices, nuts, herbs, and a hint of fruit. Nicely balanced malt, spice, fruity acidity, and a touch of bitterness. Palate is very even and smooth. This would make an excellent session brew. My 2nd favorite Vienna to date.

(bottle sample) Pours a pretty copper color with a fast disappearing thin head. Aroma is very hoppy. The flavor I expected from the aroma was amalty monster but is somewhat tempered by a suprising sweetness. Not my favorite Capital brew, but very enjoyable.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2005
Purchased brown 12 oz bottle at Armanetti’s liquor store in Libertyville, IL. Small off-white head of diminishing duration and good lacing. Hazy amber medium-bodied beer with heady fruity ester and caramel aroma. Some carbonation. Starts with a slightly sweet malty taste and finishes with dry hoppiness of average duration. Very enjoyable beer.

Got a six pack for Christmas, a very good beer. you get the nice hops bitterness, yet its still a little sweet. A nice drinkable beer that makes the palate dance. The aftertaste was also very good.

Amber in color. (Duh.) Crystal clear. lightly floral, grainy aroma. Full mouthfeel. Neither sweet nor bitter. Quite nice.
