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.

Pretty strong hops, not to re-state but it is a good outside beer in Austin during the summer. Probably not substantial enough for indoor sipping.

On draft at Shady Grove. Nice example of a style that I’m admittedly not that fond of. Amber color, hoppier than I expected, which is a good thing (for me). Nice for outdoors on a warm evening.

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.

Draft at Hole in the Wall. Flavor is very hoppy for an amber beer. Good but not great.

Draft at Billy’s in Austin. Light Amber in color, with light to medium carbonation and small to medium white head. Smell is of caramel sweetness, intense juicy dried apricots, slight maltiness. Taste is similar with a mild bitterness as well. Medium finish and a good beer overall. My favorite Live Oak beer.

Great amber color with an lasting white creamy head. Aromas were sweet and malty with hints of oak. Initial and finishing flavour was slightly sweet. Palate was medium and slightly creamy texture. Overall a great, refreshing beer to have with lunch or dinner.

This is a great brewery and this is really the wider distributed of their beers. Very good. Slightly above appropriate hoppiness.

On draught- Pours a deep amber with about an inch of white head on top. Has a fruity aroma and the taste is malty with a perfect hop taste to join it. Smooth mouth feel, great beer!

Draught at Flying Saucer, Addison TX
Hazy amber color. Some caramel aroma. Good body strength, some malt, sweet caramel, enough hopping. Correctly brewed

2.8
Enniskillen (2061) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 16, 2006
Foggy amber color, with very thin white head. Aroma is somewhat bland. Has a hint of crystal and two row malts, and the taste is slightly watery with light malt content. It was a bit plain, but what do you expect from the style.
