My eldest son brought me this on his visit yesterday.
Poured into a clear glass. The pour produced a clear golden color and a thick white head. The smell was of lemons and hops. The taste was great and I can see me having more if I find any.

Very clean look and feel. The head is light, and the beer is clear. Strong hops in the nose and taste. Refreshing on a hot and humid summer day

Fine golden yellow body; nice carbonation; fine white head, dense and creamy; spidery fingers of foam rip down the glass. Wonderful bread and biscuit smell; grassy and herbal. Medium malt grain taste with a bold, prominent hop bitterness; a bit spicy and peppery. Medium-light body; great malt warmth; very gentle sweetness; smooths out nicely after in warms up slightly.

This is a finally crafted Bavarian pilsners, malt-forward with some bold hop presence. Very tasty.

Served from 16 oz can in pilsner glass. Pours 1" frothy white head that drops slowly. Plenty of streaming carbonation. Color of slightly hazy gold. Aroma of floral and lemon hops and cracker. Mouthfeel is light with a slowly drying finish. Flavor has nice balance floral and grassy hops with sweet malt backbone. Overall: another winner from Red Oak.

Drinking this at The Red Oak Brewery.
Poured into a pint glass from tap.
Appears Golden yellow, frothy white head and lacing.
Smells aromatic, floral, herbal.
Taste follows the nose, smooth and hoppy.
Mouth feel is medium for the style.
Overall a very fine pilsner that I would definitely order again.

Taste was outstanding. A hoppy pils. Bready and a bit "tangy" (sorry, no other word sufficed). Unique to this palate and would definitely rate higher if the smell weren't so offputting. Will revisit with a better pour.

An above average product for this type. Very enjoyable and easy to drink. I had it in a restaurant along with food, and thought that it worked well. I will most likely give this one another look

Not bad, not bad at all. Maybe I was just thirsty, but I had another.
