On tap. Pours with a large off-white head, clear amber-copper. Aroma of toasted grain, light fruit and caramel. Taste is grainy, caramel, sawdust,. Light bubbles and dry mouthfeel. Decent for the style. Strykzone (7352) - 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. Braudog (6710) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2003
My least favorite of the Live Oak orchard. I thought it was way too sweet for a good Vienna lager. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2009

(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.

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. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 22, 2015

amber pour with a ring of froth. spicy malts on the nose but quite easy on the palate with a very interesting hop taste. Aurelius (5332) - 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 -- didn’t know what style it was, but I would have guessed that it was alt. Live Oak is a new fave brewer. travita (5003) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2008
On tap at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth. Copper in color with a decent off white head. Smell is malts, some hops, and a little roastiness. Good balance in the feel and taste. Taste is malty and some fruits.
