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.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2010
On tap at the Addison Flying Saucer. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is very nice. I get quite a bit of toffee, but I also get some bread and a little bit of grape. The flavor is more of the same, with a lot of toffee and bready malt as well as a little bit of pine and grass from the hops. I also get a little bit of grape in the flavor as well. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

On tap at Vickery Park in Plano. Amber color with a nice amount of white head. Bready and caramel malt aromas - flavor is the same with a bit of a hop bite. Above average lager.

theisti (3980) - Kansas, USA - MAR 8, 2013
~12 oz draft at the Craft and Growler in Dallas, Texas. The pour is a clear amber with a small egg white head. The aroma is faint, what is there is malt, cracker, and straw. Clean, just muted nose. The taste is big cracker malt, mineral earth, straw, and finishes with hay. The palate is light to medium bodied, soft natural carbonation, and an earthy straw herbal finish. Clean and tasty.

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.

Strykzone (6936) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Half pint at Ginger Man in Austin. A mid brown pour with a short but creamy head. It left nice lacing. A malty nose translated to the flavor. A bit of fruit and I tasted rye grains. Nice.

rougeau13 (2688) - 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.

3fourths (9265) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2013
draft. filtered amber body, small off-white head. cookie dough maris otter malt nose with touches of dough / yeast and little apparent hop aroma. medium bodied and sweet with medium-low smooth and creamy carbonation. decent malt base here, very smooth and creamy texture-wise; low hop bitterness; medium sweet malt comes off as very generic other than faint hints of baked biscuit and bread and dough from the maris. mostly clean and seems pretty solid on first pass: good texture, not too sweet, focused malt presentation and a clean profile throughout.

valpoaj (740) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Tap - poured reddish brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma is mostly malty, hint of dark fruit, floral notes, slightly yeasty. Flavor is basic, but enjoyable with sweet malt the name of the game - hint of dark fruit here as well. Palate is medium bodied. Unremarkable, but not offensive in the least.
