bhensonb (10814) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Bomber from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy ripe peach with a creamy near beige head. Starts a little sharp citrus quickly followed by mild roast caramel. About med body. Flavor is light caramel with some citrusy bitter. A light beer, but a good one.

Elwood (3027) - 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.

marcus (6365) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours copper with a rocky beige head and a sourish toffee aroma. There is a chewy caramel malt flavor that has a slightly sour grassy taste and a dry finish. It’s a little bit off.

theisti (3185) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAR 11, 2011
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.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Fresh bomber. Dark, hazy, slightly ruddy brownish-amber body. Small, quickly fading blanket of cream colored foam for a head. Skinny, drippy arches and flares of lace. The nose is malty, showing nicely caramelized sugars and baking bread dough. I get a hint of crusty cookie, and there’s a slightly odd alkaline note. It’s very slightly tinny/metallic, but not annoyingly so. Hops are floral and herbaceous, suggesting of sage and maybe some drying grass. Flavors largely follow suit, mostly malty, but sufficiently hopped with unique green herbal notes. There’s a mildly acidic tang that tends to cut through the doughy, bready maltiness. The palate is moderate in stature and well carbonated, drinking fairly easy, and finishing with crop, cleaning action. Decent little beer here, but nothing special.

glennmastrange (2226) - 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.

reebtogi (4109) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
650ml bomber pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some thin spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains with some hints of caramel and light fruits. Taste is a light fruity and grainy malty sweetness with a light grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with some decent carbonation. A nicely done brew for the style and quite refreshing and flavorful.

Lagerboy (1189) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2013
Bomber. Unclear orange copper, creamy off-white head lasts, leaving messy definitive stepped lacing. Aroma is muted sweet malt, citric. Sour lemon citrus, mild sweet caramel malt taste. Soft carbonation, lighter bodied, low hopped. Buttery slick citric finish. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

jcnielsen (2005) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange color with white head. Sweet bread, doughy, lemon aromas. Lemon, earthy, tangy, bread flavors. Alright, but a bit sweet.
