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.

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.

On tap at The Ginger Man in Dallas. Pours a clear amber with off-white head. Aroma of spice, light nut, a bit of caramel malt. Flavor is much the same. Mouth feel is light-medium body with high carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable beer!

[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.

My least favorite of the Live Oak orchard. I thought it was way too sweet for a good Vienna lager.

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

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.

tmoreau (4449) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Cellared 12 oz. competition/sample bottle poured to my 1/2 pint tasting glass with a clear, coppery amber hue, light tan, creamy head, and draping ribbons of lacing. The aroma was light toast and a little caramel, light estery tartness, and a bit of sweetness. The flavor was smooth, lightly toasted malt and moderate hop bitterness. The body was medium, and the mouthfeel had a light creaminess to it. Some of the bitterness lingered lightly, along with some dryness, into the finish. Less a few light style glitches, not bad.

On tap at Onion Creek. Nice amber body with slight head. Nose is floral, grainy, malty. Taste is caramel, malts. Really nice creamy texture. Enjoyable.
