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.

beermeashiner (9) - USA - OCT 26, 2007 does not count
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.

(Draught) pours amber with nice lasting head and lacing. Nose is sweet malt and crisp hops. Taste is very crisp, sweet malts mix well with the low amount of hops. This is like a nicer Boston Lager. Palette has a slightly odd bitter linger but still good. Enjoyable and refreshing.

On tap at the Saucer in San Antonio. Pours a clear honey-colored body topped with and ivory-colored sticky head. Nose is very slight bready malt. Flavor is bready, lightly sweet and mildly hop bitter. Lively carbonation and a medium mouthfeel. Clean finish with no bitterness.

Amber brew with small fast fading head. Smells of caramel malt and the taste is malty but very well balanced out to not be sweet. Very chuggable brew.

I’ve been hearing about Live Oak for two years. Finally had one and was somewhat disappointed. I don’t know if the hype ruined it. Not a bad beer though. A lot like Spaten IMHO.
