On tap at Onion Creek. Nice amber body with slight head. Nose is floral, grainy, malty. Taste is caramel, malts. Really nice creamy texture. Enjoyable. Aurelius (5654) - 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. mar (5456) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2008
amber pour with a ring of froth. spicy malts on the nose but quite easy on the palate with a very interesting hop taste. travita (5008) - 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. kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2008
A cloudy amber pour, almost no head. Refreshing aroma of strong sweet malt. Smells better than it tastes. The flavor is like slightly sour malt and strong spicy hops. Average lacing on the glass. Consistency is like juice and the finish is nice.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2011 Pretty amber pour. Nice flavor but it still maintained the metallic aftertaste typical of microbrews.3.6jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2011
RE-RATE 1/19/11 Tap at the Addison Saucer. Pours a clear, amber orange color with a very small head. Aroma is dry and grainy with some light caramel Malts. Flavor is dry, with a earthy, leafy flavor. Some sweet malts kick through near the end but finishes with a dry bitterness that isn’t too welcoming. Great till the finish.
Amber in color with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of nuts and malt. Taste is of caramel and malt with a slight hint of hops. tmoreau (4743) - 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. callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Medium amber body, thin off-white head, traces of lacing. Crackery and grainy malts, some caramel, light floral hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, a bit muddled. Not Live Oak’s best. Nuffield (4245) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2006 Amber color, rich head. Low aroma, even given that I had this at a bar--it was much more difficult to get something from it than other beers I had this evening. Slightly malty caramel, twinge of English bitter, metallic though not in excess (but still present), extremely quick finish bare fruitiness. Somewhat oily, tingling carbonation. Not a beer I would return to, but then you rarely expect to with an "amber". (on tap, Flying Saucer, Addison, TX)
