Tap. Golden with small head. Mild lager with nice flavor. A little bit buttery corn maybe?

From tap in Burlington. Pours hazy golden. Aroma was fresh hop, grain and bread. Taste followed with a bready malt base. Crisp and clean. Needs more hop bite to balance all that grainy taste.

On draft at Pop’s in Durham. I wanted something light with my food, but I really don’t like regular Red Oak. Got over my fear and found this to be a pleasant, light beer. Subtle hop profile and not too corny. Great with a fried oyster salad.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Porter’s, Raleigh. Decent looking beer, a deep golden pour with minimal carbonation. Smell is light fruit and yeast with the very faintest of hops. Body a bit oily, under-carbonated. Some diacetyl notable in the taste, prominent where the hops should be. Not good.

This one isn’t all that great. Pours golden with a moderate head. Is slightly skunky and just unappealing all around.

Tap at Grey’s. Pours pale golden with a nice white head leaving some lacing. Aroma is grainy, some veggies, dry gras and bready. Flavor is crispy, a bit malty, has some fruityness, grassy and veggies. Quite watery and finishes shortlived with slight bitternes.

Originally reviewed: 1/15/09. Had this on tap at the First St. Draught House here in town. Came out a very pale bright yellow with about a quarter inch head resting on top. This did not stick around at all. Left some spotty lacing. Smells like corn, some malt, veggies.
Really mellow flavor here. Corn is the biggest flavor I can get out of this. Backed up by some malty sweetness. No real bitterness to this at all. Nice and crisp with a medium amount of carbonation. I could drink alot of these. Not the best beer by Red Oak, but I’d get it again.
