COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rahr's Red is a delicious, medium-bodied amber beer. As it crosses over your tongue, you'll notice a bit of caramel-like malt character. You'll also notice a slight hops bitterness-there to remind you that despite its subtle flavoring Rahr's Red is a Texas beer.

Pours amber. Not too super. Not a fan of Rahr beers. A bit watery, nothing special. Have another? Pay me?

emacgee (4239) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Pours a hazy red with a one finger tan frothy head. The nose is grainy, sweet, definite lager character, caramel. The flavor is grainy, some grassy hop character, lightly sweet. Crisp mouthfeel. Not one I would do again.

Amber red in color with a small off-white head. Aromsa is weak but is of malt and light hops. Taste is the same.

ekarmst (44) - Ames, Iowa, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Bottle sampled was named Buffalo Butt. Small nose with no hops and a hint of malt. Quite clear, head is thin but does form a nice lace. Over attenuated and thin, very one dimensional. Tart and a bit sour with more carbonation than expected. An appropriately named beer.

waolsen (1367) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2008
tap at Dallas/Fort Worth airport. Brown/read pour with thin foamy head. Lacing. Light aroma of sweet malts and floral hops, light fruit. Simple and smooth. Decent body. Flavor matches aroma with a light nuttiness.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2009
12 oz bottle (labeled "Buffalo Butt"), thanks to Soonah. Pours a hazy rust color with respectable off-white head. The aroma is quite toasty with some faint caramel hints, a bit of iced tea, shoe polish, and super-ripe papaya. The flavor is lightly toasted malts, a little bit of herbal hop, and some distant fruity notes. The finish is slightly dry and carbonic, leaving a faint leathery aftertaste. Not bad for what it is.

Aurelius (4530) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2008
A leafy, tannic aroma. About what you’d expect in the land of Shiner. Moderate acidity, moderate bittering, light nutty sweetness. Medium light body. Picked it up at a mini mart in Grapevine, TX. If you’re faced with a Rahr’s choice, then opt for the schwarz. Nothing very special.

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2008
The color was a crisp amber with a thin, white, and fizzy head. The aroma was sweet, acidic, and fruit. the flavor was spiced and fruity. The palate was very carbonated. The finish was clean.

BelgianBeerGal (3287) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2008
Bottled. Ho-hum, average beer. Everything just seemd a little muddled and thin. Not bad just not something I would try again.

Cavie (3895) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2010 On tap at the BALLPARK!!!! (Labeled as Texas Red). It is VERY dark for a lager, but that’s better than most. Dark brown. Little aroma. Highly roasted taste. Roasted caramel and burnt nuts. Very dark for a lager, yet highly enjoyable. I prefer this over any of the macro lights that they offer at the park, especially if I’m gonna pay 8.50 for one beer!
Earlier Rating: 2/9/2008 Total Score: 3.1
This beer had a medium body, slick feel, average carbonation, long finish, a nutty flavour. It was rather woody, amber colored with a hint of orange but very clear. When poured, it left a white foam. I would characterize this as medium sweet, very bitter, but lightly sour beer.
