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.

3fourths (9331) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2013
draft. filtered amber body, small off-white head. cookie dough maris otter malt nose with touches of dough / yeast and little apparent hop aroma. medium bodied and sweet with medium-low smooth and creamy carbonation. decent malt base here, very smooth and creamy texture-wise; low hop bitterness; medium sweet malt comes off as very generic other than faint hints of baked biscuit and bread and dough from the maris. mostly clean and seems pretty solid on first pass: good texture, not too sweet, focused malt presentation and a clean profile throughout.
