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.

On tap at Black Sheep. Light brown pour with a white head. Aroma is light, floral, maybe some nuts, grain. Taste is a little citrus, nice bitterness, and pretty nutty.

Should be renamed "Big Bore." An ordinary amber ale that’s forgettable. Somewhat hopped.

Pours a clear amber color with off-white head. Caramel malt and roasted malt on the nose; follows onto the palate.

Light coppery colored pour. Very mild taste. Sligt artificial grape, some molasses, little bit of packing peanuts, and burnt toast. Nose is weak pasted smells. Highly quaffable.

Draught at Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, Houston, Texas.
Fine head, clear light amber body. Sweet brown sugary aroma. Sweet caramelly and brown sugary flavor. OK, but ordinary.

Fruity, fruit sour, acetic acid, that blows out, it's real beer all right. Had at BB Rovers north Austin with a lunch of chicken salad and Doggie Style (the beer). It almost spoiled the afternoon. Not much bitterness besides some husky tannins. Sweet.

Draft at Billy’s in Austin. Light Amber in color, with light to medium carbonation and small to medium white head. Smell is of caramel sweetness, intense juicy dried apricots, slight maltiness. Taste is similar with a mild bitterness as well. Medium finish and a good beer overall. My favorite Live Oak beer.

Poured light reddish brown with medium off white head...smell was sweet and nutty...taste was a little thin and caramel sweet with a nice rich nutty finish...interesting...

OldMrCrow (2435) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2006
On tap at the Grove in Austin.

Pours dark amber with a decent head; the aroma is caramel malt and a hint of grassy hops. The flavor is a barely sweet, slightly sour+metallic hoppy throughout, providing a rather uninspired amber lager that I’m in no big hurry to revisit.

Decent example of the style. These guys do some good work, but need to broaden their horizons.
