Should be renamed "Big Bore." An ordinary amber ale that’s forgettable. Somewhat hopped.

callmemickey (2779) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Medium amber body, thin off-white head, traces of lacing. Crackery and grainy malts, some caramel, light floral hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, a bit muddled. Not Live Oak’s best.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2004
Draught at Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, Houston, Texas.
Fine head, clear light amber body. Sweet brown sugary aroma. Sweet caramelly and brown sugary flavor. OK, but ordinary.

Fratto (2616) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2011
On tap at Black Sheep. Light brown pour with a white head. Aroma is light, floral, maybe some nuts, grain. Taste is a little citrus, nice bitterness, and pretty nutty.

lb4lb (2546) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Draft at Billy’s in Austin. Light Amber in color, with light to medium carbonation and small to medium white head. Smell is of caramel sweetness, intense juicy dried apricots, slight maltiness. Taste is similar with a mild bitterness as well. Medium finish and a good beer overall. My favorite Live Oak beer.

Huhzubendah (2525) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 28, 2013
On draft at The Flying Saucer in San Antonio, TX. The beer is amber hued with a half inch of head. Aromas of lager yeast, light fruity character, a touch of bread / grain. Fresh, really smooth on the palate and well balanced. Easy to drink and enjoy. Refreshing on a warm summer day. I sat outside and alternated between this and Live Oak Hefe, both tasty brews. Definitely above average for the style. I normally don’t enjoy amber lagers this much. I would definitely have this again.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2010
[Tap] Pours a light brown color with a quickly receding white head. Aroma of caramel and some earth. Toffee in the taste, with toasted hazelnut, caramel and sweet breads. Average mouthfeel and palate. Well balanced. There are no big surprises here, but this is still another well made beer from Live Oak.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 5, 2004

tmoreau (2425) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Cellared 12 oz. competition/sample bottle poured to my 1/2 pint tasting glass with a clear, coppery amber hue, light tan, creamy head, and draping ribbons of lacing. The aroma was light toast and a little caramel, light estery tartness, and a bit of sweetness. The flavor was smooth, lightly toasted malt and moderate hop bitterness. The body was medium, and the mouthfeel had a light creaminess to it. Some of the bitterness lingered lightly, along with some dryness, into the finish. Less a few light style glitches, not bad.

ilovedarkbeer (2287) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Light coppery colored pour. Very mild taste. Sligt artificial grape, some molasses, little bit of packing peanuts, and burnt toast. Nose is weak pasted smells. Highly quaffable.
