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.

True unfiltered Munich. I don’t know why this is under Oktoberfest, it’s not their Oktoberfest offering. Amber, off-white head, caramel and malt taste, slight red apple. Yeast sediment at times, sometimes sour. Tastes slightly of a compromise to please the masses, but nonetheless a fine offering. Too much bastardization of German practice in America, in my opinion.

Malty. Very little hop character. Crisp lager. Good mild flavor overall. Very approachable for those new to craft beer.

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

CelticBrew (866) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2014
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.

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.
