2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2011 Pretty amber pour. Nice flavor but it still maintained the metallic aftertaste typical of microbrews.3.6
RE-RATE 1/19/11 Tap at the Addison Saucer. Pours a clear, amber orange color with a very small head. Aroma is dry and grainy with some light caramel Malts. Flavor is dry, with a earthy, leafy flavor. Some sweet malts kick through near the end but finishes with a dry bitterness that isn’t too welcoming. Great till the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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)

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

A better-than-average amber, Big Bark has a sweet malty finish to complement the tangy hops. Not a bad beer- very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
~12 oz draft at the Craft and Growler in Dallas, Texas. The pour is a clear amber with a small egg white head. The aroma is faint, what is there is malt, cracker, and straw. Clean, just muted nose. The taste is big cracker malt, mineral earth, straw, and finishes with hay. The palate is light to medium bodied, soft natural carbonation, and an earthy straw herbal finish. Clean and tasty.

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
