Tasty for a lager. Pours an ugly yellow. Lemon in the smell. Taste is smooth and fruity, with more lemon and peach. Had on tap at the Lighthouse Beer and Wine Festival in Wilminton, NC.

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)

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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 ainít 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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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
Solid, but no more than that. A little dull and a little thin. Not something Iíll 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. Iíve 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.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I donít 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
