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.

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 doesnít go for an IPA. Nicely balanced with plenty of flavor and balance.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2003 Good head and lace, nice flavor, no after taste, no notable features. Really smooth going down and a great way to end the day!

Should be renamed "Big Bore." An ordinary amber ale thatís forgettable. Somewhat hopped.

Very good beer I thought. Nice flavor but could have used a little more kick.

Iíve been hearing about Live Oak for two years. Finally had one and was somewhat disappointed. I donít know if the hype ruined it. Not a bad beer though. A lot like Spaten IMHO.
