A friend wants to know if she can make a clone of Royal Oak beer. A beer she drank in North Carolina. Anybody ever heard of it?

Depends if it was brewed there or she just picked up a bottle there. There is an english pale ale brewed in the UK called Royal Oak Pale Ale...here is the Beer Advocate reviews http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1533/16169

If this is the beer she tasted, I found tasting notes with grains/hops used by Roger Protz:

"Royal Oak was once the flagship beer of Eldridge Pope’s brewery in Dorchester. When the brewery closed in the 1990s it seemed both Royal Oak and the iconic strong bottled beer, Thomas Hardy’s Ale, would disappear. But John O’Hanlon, with the support of an American importer, won the rights to recreate the beers in his plant in Whimple in Devon. It is the first time Royal Oak has been available in bottle-fermented form. It is brewed with Optic pale malt, crystal malt and torrefied wheat and is hopped with Challenger, Goldings and Northdown hops. It has a glowing copper-red colour with a big fluffy collar of foam, followed by a luscious aroma of spices, pepper, vanilla and woody notes. In the mouth there are creamy malt, hop resins and tart fruit. The finish is bitter-sweet with biscuity malt, spicy hops and tangy fruit. 5.0% ABV, 50cl."

A couple months back I bought a few bottles of the "New" non Eldridge Pope "Royal Oak"

The new stuff is not back but lacked some of the depth of the original.

The Dave Line recipe in "Brewing Beers like those you Buy" is a damn good clone of the original.
