COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hummingbird is a light lager or Hell (Helles) similar to those found throughout Bavaria. We use carefully selected Pilsner malt... then it is delicately hopped with imported Tettnang noble hops. Then we add a proprietary lager yeast strain which is not filtered out. Hummin’ Bird is slow cold aged for over one month resulting in a lush mouth feel.

on tap at Carolina Alehouse in Winston-Salem, NC; gold-light amber color; very lightly hopped on a very light cereal malt base; a really light, band, watery, tasteless lager; might as well be drinking water (or a Coors Lite)

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Grain and yeast aroma, light and refreshing Appearance- Pours a slightly cloudy yellow. Has a small white head. Taste- Has a very delicate grain and bread flavor that is very nice, if you are looking for a hop bomb this ain’t it. Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Overall- A very nice example of a Munich Helles Lager. Red Oak has done a nice job.

ben4321 (4745) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Location: Draft at Carolina Ale House -Charlotte Uptown, 1/6/15

Aroma: It has a pretty clean malt aroma, cereal/grains
Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a small white head on top
Flavor: The flavor is pretty clean as well, simple, not overly sweet, kind of dull though
Palate: The body is fairly light, with a clean enough feel, and a thin, watery finish
Overall Impression: Solid, but no more than that. A little dull and a little thin. Not something I’ll be rushing back for.

Purchased two 12 packs of bottles at Whole Foods in WInston-Salem, NC to have an "accessable" beer on hand for some non-craft brew drinkers. I’ve formed the following impression. Yeasty, sweet, lightly floral aroma. Straw-colored, nice head retention, lighter side of "lush" mouthfeel. Good daily drinker with meals, good post-work-out beer.

Xenon (110) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - OCT 27, 2014
I don’t see any of the unfiltered yeast while on tap. A bit sour and almost salsa/tomato flavored. Prominent corn flavor as well. Almost like chips and salsa. Light but also lacking flavor as a result. This is a harsh rating but would be bad to sip on at a party
