The clean, dry lagers of Vienna provide inspiration for our Big Bark Amber Lager. European malted barley lends it a soft body with a depth of malty richness and aroma. Small additions of noble hops gently balance characteristics of the malt. Cold fermentation and conditioning assure a beer with a clean finish, showcasing the interplay of the malt and hops. A beer of fine malt character and subtle hop nuance, it is accessible, smooth, and satisfying.

Cloudy brown honey color with a weak head. Awesome piney hops aroma with toasted malt notes. Finishes clean with lingering pleasing bitterness. In short, a solid brew.

bleeng (1668) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JUL 30, 2008
On tap at the Flying Saucer-Addison TX. Poured in a pils glass at happy hour. Light brown with very little head. Pleasant malt aroma with no hint of hops. Tastes of light malts, some residual hops, and somewhat bitter. The taste fades on the end and is a bit sticky. Not one of LO’s better products but very drinkable as a session beer.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth. Copper in color with a decent off white head. Smell is malts, some hops, and a little roastiness. Good balance in the feel and taste. Taste is malty and some fruits.

A nice session lager. Weak in the finish and doesn’t linger on the palate long. Subtle malt, little hoppiness, but I enjoy it in a frosty mug. Good stuff, but not my first choice.

Draft @ Brickskeller. Pours a clear orange color; thick, creamy white head with great retention and glistening lacing that coats the glass; great pour. Very fruity, spritzy aroma: raspberries (surprisingly), red fruits, light maltiness; fruity and lightly hopped. Light carbonation. Medium mouthfeel: red fruits, touches of pitty raspberries / raspberry syrup, and some basic candy maltiness; undercarbonated and underhopped, at least for what I’d like to see from an amber / vienna. Medium finish: toasty malts, red fruits, and wet malts; quite toasty end.

Most recently had this one on tap at Gingerman, but have had this one from kegs in the back yard as well. Pours a dark amber with 1/4 inch of off white head. I love the deep medium dark color of this beer. The aroma is of woody malt and slightly citrus hops. The flavors are very clean and crisp, with layers of oak, citrus, smoke and dark fruits all easily discernable. The hops are well balanced in this brew but I’ve had a few in the past with a sour/astringent hop after taste.

kidmartinek (4692) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2008
A cloudy amber pour, almost no head. Refreshing aroma of strong sweet malt. Smells better than it tastes. The flavor is like slightly sour malt and strong spicy hops. Average lacing on the glass. Consistency is like juice and the finish is nice.

oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2008
Sweet oak aroma some orange zest, and smoked malts. Pours a dark orange/amber brown, thin soapy head. Oak, pine, tiny bit of hickory and toasted malts in the finish. Palate is smooth but a bit bland in the finish. Meh.

amber pour with a ring of froth. spicy malts on the nose but quite easy on the palate with a very interesting hop taste.
