COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An authentic German style pilsner, this is Capital’s largest selling beer. A superbly balanced beer, with a firm maltiness alongside hearty hop bittering and flavor notes.

Color is classic pilsner - very light yellow with a thin white head about a finger high, leaves some spotty lace. Smell is sweet malt, grains, and a barely there hop presense. Taste is soild, fresh and light of sweet malt. Nicely balanced and great character in its bitterness. Everything lends itself to a smooth easy drinkin pilsner with one super solid texture. Full body thats somewhat rough in its feel, lumped into each swallow. This is one of the better pilsners I've had in quite some time, just needed to be a bit more smoother, it has great balanced taste but is a little to roughly textured for full enjoyment, but is still pretty good.

Out of the bottle, this beer poured a nice light golden color with a gorgeous head that dissipated slowly. I found the flavor reasonably complex, with a subtle but lasting hoppy finish. This stuff is A-OK.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2007 Wonderful golden color, nice head, crystal clear in appearance. I really enjoy this beer. Had this along with Victory Prima Pils and it was far and above the better beer. An excellent and authentic example of a pilsner. 6,5,7,4,15 Re-rate: Still one of the finest pils I have tried. Amazed by the head retention as it lasts through the whole glass.

Hazy gold, bit puffy head. Nose lightly sweet, grassy and weedy. Like the flavor, lots of soft malts asserting themselves as opposed to a more Prima-esque hopster. Bit grassy again, good hops at the end, really well-balanced stuff. Rather full and chewy for a pils, the malts really kick some butt in this one. I like this one better than most people do, apparently.

This is really pretty good pils. Very dry with a bit of hops throughout. A smooth sharp beer, I’m impressed with these guys so far.

Gold with good creamy white head / Grain and mild honey nose / Medium, creamy body with very good finish / Flavors of grain, clover honey, and orange, with sweet finish / Very nice, possibly comparable to Prima Pils.

Not as much aroma as I'd have liked, but the flavor makes up for it. The hops are there, and the flavor is really quite refreshing. A well-crafted product from Capital. I hadn't cared for their Wheat though and didn't expect much from this, either.
