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.

Strykzone (7181) - 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.

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 (9299) - 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 (742) - 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.

Great amber color with an lasting white creamy head. Aromas were sweet and malty with hints of oak. Initial and finishing flavour was slightly sweet. Palate was medium and slightly creamy texture. Overall a great, refreshing beer to have with lunch or dinner.

Maverick34 (3167) - 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.

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.
