3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Pint on tap. Light honey color, good lacing, head bubbles down to a collar. Nice aroma, malty goodness. Taste is very good for the style, light, and drinkable. It probably won’t win many awards, but it’s a consistent, sessionable vienna lager with a lot of character.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2014 Iâ€™m really surprised this has such a low rating. I thought it was a fantastic amber. I guess I’ll have to try it again to verify my ranking. IMO, another fine brew by Live Oak.

I had this on draft at Shozols [sic] Garden in Austin, and I thought this was a very nice but not over the top malty lager. It was hot in TX, and this beer was quite refreshing while not insubstantial.
It came in a big 20 oz glass, without a lot of head on it. It was a sparkling amber color. Aroma was a good amount of malt without any cerealness, and with a bit of hop. Flavor was more of the same; a nice amount of malt without any loss of refreshingness. Very good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet malt on the nose with some citrus possibly? Amber in color with a white top. Light bitterness and a slightly watery yet smooth finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(draft @ Alamo Drafthouse Ritz, Austin, TX): Pours a dark brown reddish body, some white head. Malty aromy, some dustiness, some fruitiness, not a strong aroma. Nutty, dusty, light fruit taste. Some graininess.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
cloudy orange color with a very thin head giving off aromas of apple and grass, tailed off with bits of caramel. flavor was sweet and apple filled, almost like a cider, but with a nice caramel back and a bit of grassy hops. very smooth and sweet. a perfect session beer, i could have drank this all day.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big bark pours a mid amber body with minimal carbonation or head. Aroma of malt, slight fruit hints. Flavor was similar with hints of apple. Overall it was ok and worth a try. Originally rated on 11/21/08.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2003 Good head and lace, nice flavor, no after taste, no notable features. Really smooth going down and a great way to end the day!
