penstemon (127) - - JUL 12, 2014
22 oz bottle. Pours dull gold with a thin white head. Aroma is malty, bread, crackers, slight cocoa powder, slight citrus, and berry tartness. Taste is up-front infected sourness, some malt, and tart berries. Light bodied, thin. Super disappointing. This was the third bottle Iíve had from Diamond Knot with infection issues.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2008
Hazy amber-orange with crisp cream top. Very little aroma with some light caravienne/vienna malt sweetness. Easy vienna malt flavor with slight sourness. Light to medium bodied.

nick76 (4173) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2011
The aroma has paper, caramel malt, mixed grains, and hops. The appearance is medium amber with an average head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall nothing special.

JDBaker11058 (1211) - Maryland, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Appearance: lightly hazy orange brown, with a short light khaki head. Aroma: malty cereal and caramel, with earthy, slightly musty hops, and hot cardboard. Taste: sweet caramel malts, with some minerality, loamy hops, and a bit of balsamic vinegar. Finish: ended with a surprising bit of sour, tangy funk, completely atypical for the style. Notes: Not very good.

there is something wrong with beer. the taste is first too soapy. not enough with the malty nor the hops. its just too bland with astringent background,

HighlanderOne (986) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2012
Poured from big bottle. Aroma of raisin, molasses, vanilla cake. Opaque amber, beige head. Flavor surprisingly off - sour apple, white wine, roasted malt. Metallic and bitter. Drain pour.

Sour bready aroma. Light amber/yellow color with a small but persistent white head. Sour flavor follows into the taste and not in a good way. Thereís a bit of caramel sweetness and toasted bread, but the pungent sour flavor dominates. Iím not sure if I got an infected bottle or not, but this is not to style for a Vienna ale.

A light aroma of something that I canít identify, but donít really like. First sip has some hops right away, than malt and very tinny finish that is quite bad. Not that good.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Pours a thin head on a cloudy medium straw colored body. The aroma is spicy biscuits and lemon. Really nice. The taste is sweet upfront with a sour middle and finish. Iím not sure if itís intended to be sour... After a few more drinks I find it difficult to continue to consume. A bad batch? The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Iíll wait a year or two to try again.
