COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The clean, dry lagers of Vienna provide inspiration for our Big Bark Amber Lager. European malted barley lends it a soft body with a depth of malty richness and aroma. Small additions of noble hops gently balance characteristics of the malt. Cold fermentation and conditioning assure a beer with a clean finish, showcasing the interplay of the malt and hops. A beer of fine malt character and subtle hop nuance, it is accessible, smooth, and satisfying.

Aurelius (5214) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2005
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 -- didnt know what style it was, but I would have guessed that it was alt. Live Oak is a new fave brewer.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2005
A better-than-average amber, Big Bark has a sweet malty finish to complement the tangy hops. Not a bad beer- very drinkable.

Tap at Flying Saucer. Nothing to get excited about. Did have some malty aroma, but the taste was flat.

On tap. Poured dark amber, medium fairly lasting head. Notable bready aroma. Somewhat sweet. Very drinkable but unremarkable.

PorterPounder (7762) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Had on tap at the Ginger Man in Austin, Tx. No apparent aroma, medium copper color with a thin light off white head. Has a little bit of brief nuttiness, butnot much else going on here. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Compared to others I have had from Live Oak - it appears that they just phoned this one in.

(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.

Tejas (1004) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2014 I’m really surprised this has such a low rating. I thought it was a fantastic amber. I guess Ill have to try it again to verify my ranking. IMO, another fine brew by Live Oak.

Fine head, clear light amber body. Sweet brown sugary aroma. Sweet caramelly and brown sugary flavor. OK, but ordinary.
