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.

Foxbush (1504) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2013
12 oz bottle This was enjoyed first at Billy Bob’s at the stockyards in Ft Worth. At a HP meeting in Ft Worth this was the beer served also at the Omni. The amber lager poured red-amber color with a small head. Aroma of caramel malts and modest hops. This beer is also called Buffalo Butt with a medium body and average carbonation. the amber lager has some bitterness, but not in a big way. Excellent with ribs and other Texas fare.

This may just be my favorite Texas amber lager. Plus, how can you beat a herd of longhorns on a beer label? Medium-dark orange/amber in color, this amber is bold, but bright with a very light brown/beige colored head and heavy, steady carbonation. Its aroma is just what you’d expect of an amber: lots of caramel and a great-matched bouquet of hops. Not too sweet, not too bitter, but just enough of both. It’s far from cloying with as much caramel as is in this, with more of a lighter body and a touch of burnt caramel, thankfully overriding that signature lager undertone. It has a full, attractive, sweet and earthy palate that ends very clean for a lager and leaves a faint whisper of fermented, malty sweetness in the mouth. Very nice for an amber lager! I’m disappointed that it gets such low reviews from other driners, though.

Cybercat (4087) - Georgia, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Had as Texas Red. Pours a slightly hazy mahogany with a thin eggshell head. Malty aroma has a cloves note and a hint of hops. Flavor features malty, cloves, hay, and subtle caramel notes. Smooth, firm, fizzy mouthfeel rounds out a decent beer.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 Thin caramel malt character accompanied with a carbonation bite. Goes down easy. Tastes good, but kind of bland--but it’s what one would expect from 141 calories. It really started to grow on me after a couple bottles.

On tap at the brewery. Sweet malty caramel aroma. Clear light caramel color with off white head. Light bodied. Earthy with hints of caramel and a slightly bitter finish.

Beerenberger (1567) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2013
Purchased as TexasRed: Aroma of malts and fruit. Pours a red amber with a none lasting white head and moderate lacing. The taste is malty up front with a hoppy bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, enjoyable. Would make a great Texas summer sipper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught. A pretty lack-luster beer. Not much flavor detected other than roasted malts.

boto (1965) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 2, 2013
Draught: This one pours a fairly clear reddish-amber color. There was a bit of an off white head on it. It left a little lacing. The aroma isn’t too bad. Pretty typical malts with some grassy notes, a decent enough lager aroma. The taste is also good, nothing really special, just good and easy to drink. Malts, some bitterness and biscuit notes. Pretty smooth. Easy to drink.

Nice, bright color, pleasant flavor and medium body. Muted finer tones. Good, simple bar beer.
