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.

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.

Easy drinking and refreshing. Slight maltiness, and sweet breadiness in the taste. Nice beer to start the night with, especially if you get it fresh, and it’s served correctly with a larger foam head.

Draft at Maggionos in Durham, NC. American pint. Pours an amber-orange with a one finger off-white head. Some lacing. Aroma was mostly a malty mashup with slight toffee. The taste was a little underwhelming with no dominant flavor. It was very malty with slight bitterness from the hops. As a Marzen I wanted a little more body, spice, character, etc. But nonetheless it went down smooth and I’d rather drink this than a Budweiser.
