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.

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.

Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 01/10/2005 Golden coloured and hoppy with some alcohol present. Crisp malt finish.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2006 Amber color, rich head. Low aroma, even given that I had this at a bar--it was much more difficult to get something from it than other beers I had this evening. Slightly malty caramel, twinge of English bitter, metallic though not in excess (but still present), extremely quick finish bare fruitiness. Somewhat oily, tingling carbonation. Not a beer I would return to, but then you rarely expect to with an "amber". (on tap, Flying Saucer, Addison, TX)

A nice session lager. Weak in the finish and doesn’t linger on the palate long. Subtle malt, little hoppiness, but I enjoy it in a frosty mug. Good stuff, but not my first choice.

bleeng (1682) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - JUL 30, 2008
On tap at the Flying Saucer-Addison TX. Poured in a pils glass at happy hour. Light brown with very little head. Pleasant malt aroma with no hint of hops. Tastes of light malts, some residual hops, and somewhat bitter. The taste fades on the end and is a bit sticky. Not one of LO’s better products but very drinkable as a session beer.

On tap at Flying Saucer - Houston on 07/27/08. Very clear amber body with a small creamy head. Toasty and bready aroma. Toasty flavor with some caramel and pale malt. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

On tap. Pours with a large off-white head, clear amber-copper. Aroma of toasted grain, light fruit and caramel. Taste is grainy, caramel, sawdust,. Light bubbles and dry mouthfeel. Decent for the style.

Had this at the Live Oak 2010 Anniversary party (be cause I’ve never officially reviewed it before). Wow, has my palate matured since I had this last. Very soapy character, sweet, amber mediocrity. Nothing much else to say from memory.
