Dogbrick (8683) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Sample at Mongoose vs Cobra. Clear copper color with a medium foamy white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt and mild hops. Light-bodied with flavors of sweet malt, earthy hops and slight fruit. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Average overall.

kevinator (1060) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Impressed. Malty and nutty aroma. Beautiful clear, almost metallic copper color with a white head. Even to the point that my wife commented on how pretty it was and she doesn’t give a crap about beer. Good crisp and clean palate with nice carbonation. Pleasant flavors for a style I don’t particularly gravitate toward. Clean grainy malts with a woody or nutty essence. Very well balanced.

Experiment_Ale (1043) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Draft at Marriott in Austin. Pours bronze with creamy head. Aroma is thin nut thin malt, eggs. Taste is light not crisp, nutty Vienna malt. Finish is long and oily nutty.

Wordsworth (135) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Draft pour at Backspin in Austin. Pours golden amber with a soapy white head that fades to a collar with webby lacing. Aroma is muted- malt, bread, not much more. Flavor is clean and refreshing, with some maltiness and a crisp finish. Light mouthfeel and mild palate. Enjoyable and easy to drink but isn't impressive.

Caytinator (966) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Pint on tap. Light honey color, good lacing, head bubbles down to a collar. Nice aroma, malty goodness. Taste is very good for the style, light, and drinkable. It probably won’t win many awards, but it’s a consistent, sessionable vienna lager with a lot of character.

Huhzubendah (2668) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 28, 2013
On draft at The Flying Saucer in San Antonio, TX. The beer is amber hued with a half inch of head. Aromas of lager yeast, light fruity character, a touch of bread / grain. Fresh, really smooth on the palate and well balanced. Easy to drink and enjoy. Refreshing on a warm summer day. I sat outside and alternated between this and Live Oak Hefe, both tasty brews. Definitely above average for the style. I normally don’t enjoy amber lagers this much. I would definitely have this again.

callmemickey (3036) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Medium amber body, thin off-white head, traces of lacing. Crackery and grainy malts, some caramel, light floral hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, a bit muddled. Not Live Oak’s best.

Light amber with minimal head. Light yeast and spice aroma. Thin. A slight hint of cinnamon and lemon. Not a fan.
