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.

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.

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.

Maverick34 (3184) - 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.

rougeau13 (2902) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2012
Tap at Hay Merchant. Clear brown with a decent beige head. Nice floral hop character in this one, its like a dark pilsener. Pretty light bodied. Nice vienna.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2010
On tap at The Ginger Man in Dallas. Pours a clear amber with off-white head. Aroma of spice, light nut, a bit of caramel malt. Flavor is much the same. Mouth feel is light-medium body with high carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable beer!

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2010
[Tap] Pours a light brown color with a quickly receding white head. Aroma of caramel and some earth. Toffee in the taste, with toasted hazelnut, caramel and sweet breads. Average mouthfeel and palate. Well balanced. There are no big surprises here, but this is still another well made beer from Live Oak.
