3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bomber sent to me by bvc. Pour is a hazed orange copper with a smallish off white head. Aroma is some dirty sweetness, along with a touch of honey followed by straw and grass. Taste is the caramel honey malt, along with straw, a bit of dirty earthiness and a grainy finish. A bit unclean. This may have had a light bottle infection. Palate is medium to thin bodied, the grainy finish dries out nice enough. Thanks Brandon, fun to try a lager by Diamond Knot.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
