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.

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

On tap. Poured dark amber, medium fairly lasting head. Notable bready aroma. Somewhat sweet. Very drinkable but unremarkable.

Deep golden orange with light tan head. Smells slightly sweet, but really not much of an aroma at all. A very light lager that is not big on flavor...very bland. Lightly carbonated and watery. Doesn’t live up to it’s name "Big Bark Amber". Where’s the "Big" and where’s the "Amber"?

Tap at Flying Saucer. Nothing to get excited about. Did have some malty aroma, but the taste was flat.

Rarely do American brewers devise ways to develop lager styles. Alog w/their pilz, this has got to be the best lager I have tasted from the U.S. Draught. Orange & plum aroma. Deep amber pour. Slight malty sweetness, with complex flavor patterns (apricot, almond, pie crust) & great hops balance. Really worth drinking more!

Draft pour at Backspin in Austin. Pours golden amber with a soapy white head that fades to a collar with webby lacing. Aroma is muted- malt, bread, not much more. Flavor is clean and refreshing, with some maltiness and a crisp finish. Light mouthfeel and mild palate. Enjoyable and easy to drink but isn't impressive.

A simple session type of "mass appeal" that left me with nothing but want. Want for maltier richness, want for a lasting head, want for something in my next mug.

On draft at Shady Grove. Nice example of a style that I’m admittedly not that fond of. Amber color, hoppier than I expected, which is a good thing (for me). Nice for outdoors on a warm evening.
