First try at a micro brew and loved it. I am now working on tasting my way through micro brews. nuplastikk (6205) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 25, 2009
12oz bottle. Filtered yellowish copper color with a nice white head that settles out pretty fast. Lots of CO2 bubbles. Crisp sweet aroma. Somewhere between light and medium bodied, with a solid bitter edge. Not particularly as clean as you might like it to be, with some corny sweetness in the finish. Overall though, this is still a pretty good product. BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2008
Thanks to Skyview for sharing this tasty pils. Gold body with faint head. Corn and faint hops on the aroma. Slightly bitter taste with more corn, malt and hops. JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUL 18, 2003
Golden color with a moderate off white head. Sweet malt and light band-aid aroma. thick, yet spritzy in feel. Maybe my taste buds are off today, but I had a bottle of this a few days ago and thought higher of it. Lacks a malt finish that I really enjoy in this style. This one seems a bit grainy. I have another bottle and will rerate in a few days if my impressions are based on a bad taste bud day. MikeHernandez (50) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 30, 2007
Aroma of malty grain, yeasty dough, and slight hop bitterness. Pours a large, white, frothy head that is mostly lasting. The body is slightly hazy with a few medium sized particles floating around. The hue of the beer is orange and gold. The initial flavor is sweet and finishes with mild hop bitterness that is average in duration. The body is light to medium with lively carbonation.
Could have benefited from a fuller body. Not a bad beer but nothing special either.

This is a nice pils. Gold color and moderate hop aroma, with malt and hop flavor. Mild bitterness. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2006
From a 12 oz. twisted cap Capital long neck brown bottle with no freshness date, served in a Capital pilsener glass.
Poured a clear golden with a good foamy white head that slowly reduced to a thin sudsy lacing, minimal amount of ringed sticking.
Aromas of dry crackers, floral and a bit grassy with touches of spice.
Good carbonation and a crisp, dry velvety smooth light bodied mouthfeel.
Good pilsener taste, dry cracker malts, a light fruitiness, earthy, grassy and spicy hops, and a dry earthy, slighty sweet malty finish.
I like pilseners to begin with, plus I admit, I have a high opinion of Capital’s German style beers, and I found this to be quite enjoyable, dry, tasty and balanced.

Clear yellow/orange in color with no head or visible signs of activity. Aroma is the classic pils aroma - crisp, lemons, honey and hops, as if they’ve been stored in a forgotten crawl space. Flavor is crisp, lemony and bready. Light, but the hops butch it up a bit. Musky connotations. Light and smooth. Trademark pilsner. Slight dry feel left from the hop stop on the back and center part of the tongue. Nice summer refresher.
