Not a fan. When I drank this I was reminded of how my basic homebrewing skills far exceeds the quality of this beer. Oddly sweet on the finish and lacking much character. I’m not a fan of the aftertaste.

It pours amber with a white that does leave some lacing. It has a faint, malty aroma. The taste with of caramel with some fruit. It was fairly smooth on the palate.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2014 Sampled on draft this beer poured a red-caramel color with a medium sized creamy off white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was very faint, a touch malty and had a bit of fruity hops. The flavor was sweetish caramel and dark fruits. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied and smooth. Pleasant.

Red Oak is clear ruddy amber beer with a decent foam of cream colored tiny bubbles. Nose is medium roasted malt and grain. Taste is rather thin grain and a bit of moderately toasted malt. Hops are very mild. Body is rather thin. somewhat of a disappointing lager. On tap at ruddy duck tavern in morehead city north carolina.

Reddish amber pour with an off white head. Nose is a little bready and malty. Taste is decent. A little mineral astringency in the finish.

Got this bottle as a gift from my uncle, who lives in Raleigh. Pours a clear and somewhat bubbly amber, which fades to solar yellow at the very bottom. Pale buff head is fairly thick but doesn’t stick around too long. Strong, malty aroma has a fruity underpinning. Flavor is not crisp like some lagers, smoother and more ale-like; it is malty, a little sweet, with an undertone of pear and apple and a snippet of caramel. Mouthfeel is firm and smooth, if not so fizzy. Overall, a superior lager.

An average craft bee at best. Heavy flavored and pours a deep red. Tastes slightly hoppy.
