By far one of my favorite American-made beers and the best mai bock I’ve ever had. Watch the time and make sure your in bed by bed-check time!

Very Flavorful, slight bitterness at end. Floral. I am new to many beers, but theis may be a new favorite. Color is a pale gold. Beer is ever so slightly heavy, but it adds to the rich flavor of the beer

I love Wisconsin beers I do I do. Bought this one from John’s Grocery in Iowa City thats shipping beer again. Thats right their baaaack!!!! Can’t miss with Capital either great beer from a great beer state. Looks very much like the Dogwood I had before it. Bottom line, Capital Maibock is tons better than Dogwood. Not a slam on Dogwood but Capital is terrific beer. More hops/malts, smoother and more gravity and definitely a denser feeling beer. Underrated and definitely a beer everybody who doesn’t know should try. Capital’s product is awesome and never disappoints. Besides its a Wisconsin Micro, thats what you expect:)

Nice orangy glow with a huge creamy white head, two fingers high and settled slowly to retain a solid haze of bubbles and some large curtains of lace and some spots. Smell is soft of yeast, breadlike dough with hop notes lingering in the back and sweet malt notes as well. Taste is smooth and mild with a small sweet tang and easy bitterness, quite nice. The malt really comes through as it warms which is a nice feature. Feel is a solid medium/light body with a lightly measurable creamyness, an oily sense as well and has a slight zestyness in the finishing hold.

I'm beginning to fall in love with Capital Brewing. Brownish auburn. Nice nose, sweet, a bit smoky, some malts. Beautiful flavor, very malty. Sweet, lots of butterscotch and caramel. Slightly smoky and a bit scotchy, very nice. Smooth, very drinkable. The best maibock I've run into.

On tap at the brewery. One of my favorites that I had that day. Glowing orange color with a creamy tan head. Smells as expected - caramel malts and right levels of carbonation. Sweet, clean, crisp and malty. Elements of grass, lemons and cedar. Damn good beer. Hands down the best maibock I’ve ever had.

Nice malt flavor, with a backdrop of hops. Sweet but not overly sweet, like some bock beers.

Stellar. Nice maltiness, not a ton of hops. Extremely smooth-goes down almost too easy.

A great Maibock that is complex with a lot of original character. It is a bit sweet, but the hops compliment the body and maltiness very well. There is little head, presumably due to the higher alcohol. It starts off sweet with a nice mouthfeel. From there is moves into rasins and apples finally to finish with a nice noble hop taste. Well done and it ages woderfully (one year no more).
