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.

Cloudy brown honey color with a weak head. Awesome piney hops aroma with toasted malt notes. Finishes clean with lingering pleasing bitterness. In short, a solid brew.

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.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2006
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 I’ll have to try it again to verify my ranking. IMO, another fine brew by Live Oak.

Caytinator (1005) - Waco, Texas, 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 won’t win many awards, but it’s 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.

3.4

Pours a clear reddish amber color with a small head that quickly dissipates. Nose is caramel, nuts, leaves. light sweetness, medium bitterness, medium light body, average carb, dry finish.
