Notes/Commercial Description:
From the brewery: Red Oak Amber is a Munich Urtyp (Old Style) Lager. We begin the brewing process with custom kilned imported Munich Malt. Red Oak is then hopped with Spalt Noble Hops imported from Bavaria, the oldest hop growing region in the world. Before fermentation we add a yeast strain from Weihenstephen, the oldest brewery in the world, founded before 1040 AD. Weeks of aging gives Red Oak the smooth taste it is known for.

Pours a light amber color with a dense white foam. The aroma is sweet and fruity, impressive for a Vienna. Light malt and hardly a trace of floral hops. Quite an appetizing aroma.

The taste is malty but balanced, caramel, toffee, light tea like hop flavors. Ultra clean yet full bodied and satisfying. This beer is brewery only and always refrigerated. What else can you ask for in a Vienna Lager? Thx to my cousin Brennan for hauling this back from North Carolina.
