PorterPounder (7123) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Had on tap at the Ginger Man in Austin, Tx. No apparent aroma, medium copper color with a thin light off white head. Has a little bit of brief nuttiness, butnot much else going on here. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Compared to others I have had from Live Oak - it appears that they just phoned this one in.

Poured light reddish brown with medium off white head...smell was sweet and nutty...taste was a little thin and caramel sweet with a nice rich nutty finish...interesting...

(Draught) Pours a clear amber-brown body with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet with caramel, brown sugar, and sweet malt. Similar flavor with some nuts. Somewhat sticky palate.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2014 I’m really surprised this has such a low rating. I thought it was a fantastic amber. I guess Ill have to try it again to verify my ranking. IMO, another fine brew by Live Oak.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 27, 2004
Draught at Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, Houston, Texas.
Fine head, clear light amber body. Sweet brown sugary aroma. Sweet caramelly and brown sugary flavor. OK, but ordinary.

grat (432) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Another good brew from live oak.Nice amber copper hue. Head dissipates into nothing quickly. Smells of bourbon, wet hay and vanilla. Also notes of caramel. Although it doesnt look or really smell like much this beer is very drinkable. Grat

I was not impressed with this beer. It had a metallic taste to it that threw everything else off. Not much flavor here for an amber beer.

Terminus (3544) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 15, 2004
tap at a bar in downtown Austin-well, after having their pilsner, this one falls very short. pretty boring for an amber-weak body with some spicy german hops. thin malts. not very solid

Decent example of the style. These guys do some good work, but need to broaden their horizons.
