Tina’s choice, a malty Vienna-style ale with a light hop finish.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2011
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a cloudy amber color with a small but persistent head of off white foam. The nose has light fruit and malt notes. The flavor has some cracker, more fruit than it should, and a faint hint of both caramel and metallic notes. A hint of sweetness up front, a faint bitterness in the back, evening out in the end for a medium finish. Light to medium body, you could certainly have a few of these. Not entirely bad, but it seems to be wandering aimlessly.

22 ounce bottle
This was a discount offering from a trip to Washington, DC. Now I know why - it is an average and unremarkable vienna lager. Maybe it is better fresh but the taste profile here was lackluster. Only the low price tag keeps it from dropping a few more points.

Aroma / Appearance - Cloudy liquid the color of watery maple syrup poured from the bottle and was soon embraced by a thick white head. The nose is warmed over maple syrup on wheat pancakes, sweet icing on a plain cupcake, and not much more. Thin and confusing this is mild as if waiting for permission to show its full colors.

Flavor / Palate - Semi-sweet chocolate chips, caramel and a dry yeasty finish are the main aspects of a relatively dull profile. The finish is a bit nutty and makes me wonder if this lost a bit of its edge in traveling from coast to coast. For that reason I wouldn’t mind trying another Diamond Knot beer - this time on the West Coast near the source.

glennmastrange (2464) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Bottle. Moderate cereal and nutty for the malt, light orange and dough for the hops and yeast, with cardboard and faint dried dark fruit in the background. Head is small, fizzy turning creamy, beige with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy, light orangey-brown. Flavor starts moderately acidic and a bit salty, then finishes lightly acidic and faintly bitter. Palalte is medium, watery with a soft carbonation. Smells nice, complex but there is not a lot of flavor in this Vienna.

ABUSEDGOAT (2417) - California, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Amber colored, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is toast, bread, light spicy hop. Lighter bodied, quite drinkable. Pretty nice, nothing overly complex but still enjoyable.

JFGrind (1925) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Apple aroma, light bodied amber Vienna with grainy malt flavor, and sour aftertaste. Paired with Danish Blue and Philly Soft Pretzel the thin palate of the Vienna was evident. I picked up a bomber @ Total Wine Claymont, De for about five bucks, deduct a two dollars and I believe we have come to a fair price for a bomber.
