To me this is their "middle of the road" brew. But at least they know how to drive in style. It is a tad too non- offensive, but I think that is te idea - to get a beer out there that will grab the crowd that doesn’t go for an IPA. Nicely balanced with plenty of flavor and balance.

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.

Impressed. Malty and nutty aroma. Beautiful clear, almost metallic copper color with a white head. Even to the point that my wife commented on how pretty it was and she doesn’t give a crap about beer. Good crisp and clean palate with nice carbonation. Pleasant flavors for a style I don’t particularly gravitate toward. Clean grainy malts with a woody or nutty essence. Very well balanced.

Another good brew from live oak.Nice amber copper hue. Head dissipates into nothing quickly. Smells of bourbon, wet hay and vanilla. Also notes of caramel. Although it doesn’t look or really smell like much this beer is very drinkable.

Pint glass at Opal Devine’s- very little head, aroma of malt, perfect amber color in appearance. Hits the mouth with a medium body, a note of sweetness to start, hops on the middle and finish, which is mildly bitter and frank. A beer that made me crave a smoke while I drank it, which is very hard to do! Bottle and sell it damn it!

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.
