SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2010
On tap at The Ginger Man in Dallas. Pours a clear amber with off-white head. Aroma of spice, light nut, a bit of caramel malt. Flavor is much the same. Mouth feel is light-medium body with high carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable beer!

troyc (2870) - 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.

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

Decent example of the style. These guys do some good work, but need to broaden their horizons.

(Draught) Pours a clear amber-brown body with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet with caramel, brown sugar, and sweet malt. Similar flavor with some nuts. Somewhat sticky palate.

ilovedarkbeer (2712) - Arlington, Virginia, 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.

tmoreau (3713) - 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.

On tap at Onion Creek. Nice amber body with slight head. Nose is floral, grainy, malty. Taste is caramel, malts. Really nice creamy texture. Enjoyable.

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.
