COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Red Oak is a Munich Urtyp (old style) lager. We begin the brewing process with custom kilned imported Munich malt. Red Oak is then is the hopped with Spalt Noble hops imported from Bavaria, the oldest hop growing region in the world. Before fermentation we add a yeast strain from Weihenstehpen, the oldest brewery in the world, founded before 1040 AD. Weeks of aging gives Red Oak the smooth taste its known for.

From tap. Pours a wonderful clear red color with little head. Aroma is sweet in both caramel and fruit. Taste follows as a caramel malt with a little bready taste and lots of sweet fruit. Crisp finish.

Location: Draft at CLT, 1/15/15

Aroma: Light caramel malt aroma, earthy notes, there is not a ton more than that here
Appearance: It pours a darker orange color, with a clear, small head, and basically no lacing
Flavor: It is pretty similar flavor-wise, malty and kinda sweet, with a mild bitterness
Palate: It has a decent feel to it, a light-medium body, and a fairly lively carbonation
Overall Impression: I don’t have a ton to add to the overall. It’s an okay lager, but not a particularly great one.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pours a medium red, forming a small, thin head of foam. Lacing almost non evident. Aroma was dank, hops are barely present. Flavour is somewhat soapy, lightly herbal. Finish is slightly metallic. Pass.
