Clear amber pour with not much of a head. Aroma of crackers, caramel, grass. Good vienna malt flavors with crisp hops. Nice full mouthfeel. Fresh and lively on the palate. Really nice lager that doesn’t fuck around with goofy spices. This beer is like an agnostic’s Christmas .

Shared by MrFacto at Pre-Sex - thanks, Matt! Deep russet color on the pour, with a nice creamy head. Soft toasted caramel in the nose, along with a bit of bitter hops. Maybe a faint touch of wood in the taste. A nice balanced beer.

Headbanger (3918) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2008 12oz bottle-An amber body with a nice one finger head which has an aroma of roasted malt, a little hops, and a little grassy. Taste was amostly malty with some faint hops and a bit grassy on this light body. Not a big fan of this style but a nice tasting brew.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Amber with a medium quickly dissolving tan head. Aroma of toasted Vienna malt and crystal malt. Taste of caramel, toasted malt, mild fruit and spices. A nicely done Vienna that goes down pretty easy.

12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass showing a clear, coppery amber color, frothy, cream toned head foam, and wavy cling to the lacing. The aroma was smooth, lightly toasted & sweet malt, light grain, with a touch of caramel & vanilla? The flavor was similar, adding moderate hop bitterness, a light to medium body, mild dryness, and a bit of lingering alcohol warmth to complement the decent malt character.

Cheers! (Skål)... Capital Winter Skål pours a clear honey color and has a dense, creamy, ivory head. The initial head collapses slowly to a frothy and bubbly crown with nice lacing. The aroma is moderately sweet malt and grain that screams Vienna! The flavor is malty, toffee, and some bisuit. There is some alcohol present in the finish. Average body, fairly smooth and creamy on the palate. Overall I think this is a good Vienna, but unfortunately nothing too spectacular. I was also hoping for something a little more robust with higher alchol for the Winter season... 12 bottle from buckybeer. Thanks Mark!

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Draught. Clear orange-amber color with thin tan head. Caramel and subtle sprucy hop nose. Hop flavor is overwhelmed by the strong malty caramel flavor and slight sweetness. Spicy aftertase.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2005 ReRate-it had been a few years since i had this beer. my best friend from back home came to my door with a 6er of this stuff. pours an orange hue with minimal white head. is it me or all of capital’s beers slightly under-carbonated? slight tea aroma-vanilla and caramel flavors in the finish. some grainy malt flavors. a good session beer for the winter months.
