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.

Aroma didn’t knock my socks off...musty, yeasty, bready notes with some hops hiding in there. Nice deep, garnet color with an off-white head that quickly dissipated. Sweet, caramel/toffee notes with a slightly burnt finish. Body was a bit thin. A somewhat pedestrian amber ale...nothing I would actively seek out.

Almost clear light amber color with a medium off-white head. Malty with toffee notes a light citrusy hop. Semi-sweet. Dull light malty flavor. Some earthy notes. Thin and watery finish.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2007
12oz bottle via trade with legion242 - Pours pale copper with a short offwhite head. Aromas of light caramel and maybe a touch of grass. Flavor is about the same.. Caramel and light grass.. Maybe a touch of cardboard too. Palate is sweet and this just seems to lack depth.. Not too good..

Draught at Cricket’s Grill, Waco
In December it was available in many pubs around Texas, probably a re-edition of the Yellow Rose Buffalo Butt; more than one bartender confirmed that the beer came from Rahr


Light amber color. It seems to be a reasonable beer (an Ale probably, smooth and with a delicate malt taste), but spoiled by a light medicine aftertaste.

Draught at the brewery
Hazy amber color. Aroma of simple Lager. The flavor is not much better, with just a touch of caramel.

TheEpeeist (3346) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2007
12 oz bottle. Clear pink orange with a brief white head. Corn flakes and red grapes. Light carb with decent body for a lager (?). Bread, green apple. Dries a little.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2007
From the bottle, courtesy of secret santa, pours a clear red with little white head. Smells a little like cranberry juice, and a little bit of malts. Light on the palate with a distict taste of malts, maybe a little cherry, not too complex. Light and refreshing, not the best beer out there but I’d enjoy a few of these on a summer day.

swanmann (604) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 12, 2006
smells like beer, clear light amber color w/thin cream colored head, lightly sweet, well-balanced hoppiness, just not very intense. palate-moderate carbonation w/ quick finish. got it at the brewery, 4 free pints with the purchases of a $5 pint glass, every saturday 1-3pm.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Body is amber, not much of a head. Aroma is oatmeal, grits, caramel, and that’s about it. Taste has a bit of a wheat character to it which is suprising, along with a light hop background, very light caramel, and a bit of honey. Not very good, pretty bland.

ugh. This one pours a very light clear amber color with a thin white head. Horribly boring aroma with the faintest hint of caramel. This beer is almost beyond flavorless. I have now finished my mixed six-pack of Texas beers and I’m glad to never drink them again.

Thanks go to Walt for this. Had it after a ling run and must say that it was refreshing.. Nothing really stands out flavor wise but it had a mild caramel maltiness with a little grain flavor.
