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 better-than-average amber, Big Bark has a sweet malty finish to complement the tangy hops. Not a bad beer- very drinkable.

This was a pleasant brew, without anything extreme but fresh and well made. A good alternative to macros at most establishments I found myself at in Austin.

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.

Pretty strong hops, not to re-state but it is a good outside beer in Austin during the summer. Probably not substantial enough for indoor sipping.

On draught at Posse East in Austin. This is my regular go-to beer at this location. Pours transparent amber. Nice malty balance with a very smooth finish. Can drink several, so makes a nice session beer in my opinion. Seems stronger than most lagers but without published alcohol content, cannot confirm this. Goes nice with a Posse burger basket!!

A cloudy amber pour, almost no head. Refreshing aroma of strong sweet malt. Smells better than it tastes. The flavor is like slightly sour malt and strong spicy hops. Average lacing on the glass. Consistency is like juice and the finish is nice.
