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.

A not-dark amber color, with a fairly lasting head. Aroma had some caramel flavors with a hint of hops. Flavor was the same, well balanced and good, but not unique. A nice beer to have with your meal in Austin.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2014 I’m really surprised this has such a low rating. I thought it was a fantastic amber. I guess Ill have to try it again to verify my ranking. IMO, another fine brew by Live Oak.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Pint on tap. Light honey color, good lacing, head bubbles down to a collar. Nice aroma, malty goodness. Taste is very good for the style, light, and drinkable. It probably wont win many awards, but its a consistent, sessionable vienna lager with a lot of character.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2007
I had this on draft at Shozols [sic] Garden in Austin, and I thought this was a very nice but not over the top malty lager. It was hot in TX, and this beer was quite refreshing while not insubstantial. It came in a big 20 oz glass, without a lot of head on it. It was a sparkling amber color. Aroma was a good amount of malt without any cerealness, and with a bit of hop. Flavor was more of the same; a nice amount of malt without any loss of refreshingness. Very good.

Big bark pours a mid amber body with minimal carbonation or head. Aroma of malt, slight fruit hints. Flavor was similar with hints of apple. Overall it was ok and worth a try. Originally rated on 11/21/08.

Sweet malt on the nose with some citrus possibly? Amber in color with a white top. Light bitterness and a slightly watery yet smooth finish.

(draft @ Alamo Drafthouse Ritz, Austin, TX): Pours a dark brown reddish body, some white head. Malty aromy, some dustiness, some fruitiness, not a strong aroma. Nutty, dusty, light fruit taste. Some graininess.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2005
cloudy orange color with a very thin head giving off aromas of apple and grass, tailed off with bits of caramel. flavor was sweet and apple filled, almost like a cider, but with a nice caramel back and a bit of grassy hops. very smooth and sweet. a perfect session beer, i could have drank this all day.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2003 Good head and lace, nice flavor, no after taste, no notable features. Really smooth going down and a great way to end the day!
