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.

Bottle from Swing Bridge Beer & Wine, Surf City, North Carolina. Darker amber with a carbonation and no head. Very sweet lager, with a dense drinking texture.

Red Oak is the PUREST beer you can drink. Unfiltered and Unpasteurized. Beer should be PURE like Red Oak..Great job guys and have fun. This beer has enough CALCIUM and is good for BONES..PUREST of all BEERS available in the market. Usually don’t rate beers as I love all of them but RED OAK ranks the BEST.

From tap. Pours clear and golden amber with a small off white head. Aroma is breadish and slight roasted malty. Toasted breadish to caramelish malty. Bitter and dry malty finish.

Pours up a reddish orange with a wispy, off white head. The aroma is sweet malt, fruit, alcohol. Taste is a little thin, with sweet, fruity, alcohol. Bland, lacking depth and complexity. A little too sweet really for what it is. Non offensive, just nothing great.

12 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Thanks to my friend Mike for the bottle. Labeled as Bavarian Amber Lager. Clear dark amber with just over a finger of off-white head. Aromas of malt, dark fruit, toasty notes, biscuit, some citrus. Tastes of toasty notes, biscuit, malt, some caramel. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Sweet and malty.

Pours a clear golden brown on tap with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of sweet malt and clean lager esters. Taste follows, solid for what it is, just not that exciting.

A good Amber, their lager is better. Pours a clear red. Smells slightly of nuts. Taste is basic red, some nuts. Well balanced finish. Had on tap at the Lighthouse Beer and Wine Festival in Wilminton, NC.

Really sweet lager. Clear reddish color. Big malt sweetness and caramel notices. Light, but sticky. Still a decent drinker.
