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.

Great amber color with an lasting white creamy head. Aromas were sweet and malty with hints of oak. Initial and finishing flavour was slightly sweet. Palate was medium and slightly creamy texture. Overall a great, refreshing beer to have with lunch or dinner.

This is a great brewery and this is really the wider distributed of their beers. Very good. Slightly above appropriate hoppiness.

On draught- Pours a deep amber with about an inch of white head on top. Has a fruity aroma and the taste is malty with a perfect hop taste to join it. Smooth mouth feel, great beer!

Hazy amber color. Some caramel aroma. Good body strength, some malt, sweet caramel, enough hopping. Correctly brewed

Enniskillen (2045) - Salinas, California, USA - SEP 16, 2006
Foggy amber color, with very thin white head. Aroma is somewhat bland. Has a hint of crystal and two row malts, and the taste is slightly watery with light malt content. It was a bit plain, but what do you expect from the style.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2006
A not-dark amber color, with a fairly lasting head. Aroma had some caramel flavors with a hint of hops. Flavor was the same, well balanced and good, but not unique. A nice beer to have with your meal in Austin.

On tap at the Grove in Austin.

Pours dark amber with a decent head; the aroma is caramel malt and a hint of grassy hops. The flavor is a barely sweet, slightly sour+metallic hoppy throughout, providing a rather uninspired amber lager that I’m in no big hurry to revisit.

Nuffield (4083) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2006 Amber color, rich head. Low aroma, even given that I had this at a bar--it was much more difficult to get something from it than other beers I had this evening. Slightly malty caramel, twinge of English bitter, metallic though not in excess (but still present), extremely quick finish bare fruitiness. Somewhat oily, tingling carbonation. Not a beer I would return to, but then you rarely expect to with an "amber". (on tap, Flying Saucer, Addison, TX)

Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 01/10/2005 Golden coloured and hoppy with some alcohol present. Crisp malt finish.

This was a pleasant brew, without anything extreme but fresh and well made. A good alternative to macros at most establishments I found myself at in Austin.
