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

(draft) Clear amber body with off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, nutty, Tettnang(?). Taste is medium sweet, caramel, Tettnang, some earthy. Light-medium body, bit of stickiness.

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.

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 doesn’t 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 (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, 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.

Fruity, fruit sour, acetic acid, that blows out, it's real beer all right. Had at BB Rovers north Austin with a lunch of chicken salad and Doggie Style (the beer). It almost spoiled the afternoon. Not much bitterness besides some husky tannins. Sweet.

My least favorite of the Live Oak orchard. I thought it was way too sweet for a good Vienna lager.

To me this is their "middle of the road" brew. But at least they know how to drive in style. It is a tad too non- offensive, but I think that is te idea - to get a beer out there that will grab the crowd that doesn’t go for an IPA. Nicely balanced with plenty of flavor and balance.
