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.

Draft at the Gingerman Plano. This beer pours a medium amber with a thin off white head. The aromas are bread, musk and a hint of citrus. The mouthfeel is slightly sticky with a light bitterness and medium body. An average beer at best.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2010
On tap at the Addison Flying Saucer. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is very nice. I get quite a bit of toffee, but I also get some bread and a little bit of grape. The flavor is more of the same, with a lot of toffee and bready malt as well as a little bit of pine and grass from the hops. I also get a little bit of grape in the flavor as well. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Enjoyed while in the Dallas area on business. Appearance slightly cloudy amber with a thin head. Aroma of malt and lager yeast. Taste a little creamy, basic amber lager easy to drink.

[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.

3.2
tmoreau (4632) - 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.

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.

Oktoberfest bready caramalt aroma. Dark gold in color. A bit of bread and red apple in the flavor.

Had this at the Live Oak 2010 Anniversary party (be cause I’ve never officially reviewed it before). Wow, has my palate matured since I had this last. Very soapy character, sweet, amber mediocrity. Nothing much else to say from memory.

3.3
SphinxTX (2878) - 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!
