2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

(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 Iâ€™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.

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.

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.

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.
