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.

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.

12 oz. can. A near clear Amber color liquid, some mild head retention. Aroma is tame, light toffee. The flavors shows toffee, caramel, yeast present. Crisp texture with a moderately sweet finish. Body is thin. For the style this is pretty ok. Not much else to say here. Simple.

Strykzone (7800) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Half pint at Ginger Man in Austin. A mid brown pour with a short but creamy head. It left nice lacing. A malty nose translated to the flavor. A bit of fruit and I tasted rye grains. Nice.

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

(Draught) pours amber with nice lasting head and lacing. Nose is sweet malt and crisp hops. Taste is very crisp, sweet malts mix well with the low amount of hops. This is like a nicer Boston Lager. Palette has a slightly odd bitter linger but still good. Enjoyable and refreshing.

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.
