My least favorite of the Live Oak orchard. I thought it was way too sweet for a good Vienna lager.

Mora2000 (5853) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2010
On tap at the Addison Flying Saucer. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is very nice. I get quite a bit of toffee, but I also get some bread and a little bit of grape. The flavor is more of the same, with a lot of toffee and bready malt as well as a little bit of pine and grass from the hops. I also get a little bit of grape in the flavor as well. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

PorterPounder (5697) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2004
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 amber with nice lasting head and lacing. Nose is sweet malt and crisp hops. Taste is very crisp, sweet malts mix well with the low amount of hops. This is like a nicer Boston Lager. Palette has a slightly odd bitter linger but still good. Enjoyable and refreshing.

Strykzone (5065) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Half pint at Ginger Man in Austin. A mid brown pour with a short but creamy head. It left nice lacing. A malty nose translated to the flavor. A bit of fruit and I tasted rye grains. Nice.

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

Aurelius (4365) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Buttery, diacetyl, a bit like a bohemian pilsener in that respect. Grainy, astringent and a little fruity. Disntinctly pruney at times, woody at others. Some straw. Nicely bittered, great with food, bronze and clear. Cherry biscuit finish. I really liked this a lot -- didn’t know what style it was, but I would have guessed that it was alt. Live Oak is a new fave brewer.

travita (4150) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2008
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.

Amber in color with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of nuts and malt. Taste is of caramel and malt with a slight hint of hops.

djd07 (3879) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2008
On tap at Flying Saucer. Has an amber/orange color with a medium white head. Has a good balance of hop and malt on the nose. Good lacing on the glass. The taste is a very smooth tangerine and a bitter finish. Enjoyed this one.
