On tap at Flying Saucer - Houston on 07/27/08. Very clear amber body with a small creamy head. Toasty and bready aroma. Toasty flavor with some caramel and pale malt. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Huhzubendah (3736) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 28, 2013
On draft at The Flying Saucer in San Antonio, TX.
The beer is amber hued with a half inch of head. Aromas of lager yeast, light fruity character, a touch of bread / grain. Fresh, really smooth on the palate and well balanced. Easy to drink and enjoy. Refreshing on a warm summer day. I sat outside and alternated between this and Live Oak Hefe, both tasty brews. Definitely above average for the style. I normally don’t enjoy amber lagers this much. I would definitely have this again. Terminus (3710) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 15, 2004
tap at a bar in downtown Austin-well, after having their pilsner, this one falls very short. pretty boring for an amber-weak body with some spicy german hops. thin malts. not very solid GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Draft at Ginger Man Austin. Poured a clear medium orange color. the head was off white and left some lace behind on the glass. Smelled of spicy malt and some brown sugar. Light bodied and dry with an earthy fall leaf note accompanied by grassy hops and dry grains. Fairly thin. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2005
A better-than-average amber, Big Bark has a sweet malty finish to complement the tangy hops. Not a bad beer- very drinkable.

Oktoberfest bready caramalt aroma. Dark gold in color. A bit of bread and red apple in the flavor. dfinney23 (3395) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Very average all-around. Medium amber with a medium head. Malt and grain aroma, fading taste. Maverick34 (3313) - New York, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Draft @ flying saucer H-town. Was called a Vienna but tasted a lot more aleish. Poured an orange. Bit of head. Some malts and a fairly strong hops finish. OK. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Draft @ Brickskeller. Pours a clear orange color; thick, creamy white head with great retention and glistening lacing that coats the glass; great pour. Very fruity, spritzy aroma: raspberries (surprisingly), red fruits, light maltiness; fruity and lightly hopped. Light carbonation. Medium mouthfeel: red fruits, touches of pitty raspberries / raspberry syrup, and some basic candy maltiness; undercarbonated and underhopped, at least for what I’d like to see from an amber / vienna. Medium finish: toasty malts, red fruits, and wet malts; quite toasty end. rougeau13 (3156) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2012
Tap at Hay Merchant. Clear brown with a decent beige head. Nice floral hop character in this one, it’s like a dark pilsener. Pretty light bodied. Nice vienna.
