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.

This is good beer. It has a sweet smell of slight fruittyness, with the added aroma of hops. It pours an amber tone that makes me think....blah. Though it doesn't have a great appearance. It has a nice taste. A floral blend of malt and hops is a sure pleaser and makes it easy to guzzle down a few of these beers. Definetly a decent beer.

Had a pint at the Mellow Mushroom in Durham NC...

A: Poured a dark amber with hints of orange, not much head, settled to a thin layer with good lacing from start to finish.

S: I'm getting a lot of sweet malt, little caramel with a touch of floral hops.

T: OK, caramel right up front, the sweet malt hits mid palette the finish has a herbal hops... very slight. Leans more on the sweet side.

M: Light to medium bodied... I thought it was a little to light. Finish is clean with very little bitterness.

O: Pretty solid Red, not crazy different but strong none the less... Worth looking for when you are in the NC.
