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 a clear dark amber with a decent cream head and nice lacing. Aroma is faint caramel. Taste is some caramel sweetness, a little nutty, and some bitterness. Very drinkable.

Terminus (3146) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - NOV 30, 2011
bottled as Buffalo Butt-Im going against the grain on this one-this is a fine example of this very under looked style that im saying is one of the better versions brewed in this country. pours dark copper with a small off-white soapy head. nose of caramel malt qualities (sweet, lite husky notes), lite lager yeast twang and some faint spicy hops. flavors exhibit the earthy, grainy amber malt qualities. this malt profile in this beer is very clean and spot on. THe only other example from an amercian brewery that would be as good as this is the vienna from Great lakes. other than that, this is definately a winner for this style.

freeofthoughts (633) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Bottle pours pale amber orange with a finger of foam. Smells of bready malt and sweet toffee and caramel are smooth. The taste is nice and malty but not as sweet as the aroma with a herbal hop spice that work nicely in the finish. It is a smooth a slightly creamy beer that goes down real easy when cold and it is not hurt much by warmth. Enjoyable on a cool fall evening.

From a bottle - pours copper with a thin tan head and good carbonation. Nice caramel malt flavor on initial taste. Thin mouthfeel and somewhat of a watery finish.

beerbill (3267) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 5, 2011
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with crajun. Pours a clear amber with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and laced the glass well. Mild aroma of caramel and malt. The flavor is similar with mild caramel and malt, lightly sweet. A bit spritzy on the palate. Mild bitterness at the finish.

AWMiller (512) - Mansfield, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2011
A lovely dark maroon brew that sports a fairly hearty head, which dissipates a bit too quickly for my preference. Lively scents and flavors of caramel, malt, toast, and toffee; and a slight reminiscent hint of warm flaky biscuits (yeah… Hungry Jack style). Not too hoppy … not too sweet. Good carbonation makes for a light, refreshing mouth-feel.

troyc (2200) - Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2011
[Bottle] Pours a light amber color with a thin white cap of head. Sweet toffee, bread and caramel in the aroma. The taste is very similar. Mild hazelnut and grassy hops round out the sweet malty backbone. Prickly carbonation. Nothing majorly wrong with this one. Not very exciting, but at least it’s better than their Bock I just had.

Bottle. Pours clear dark reddish brown. White head. Nose of corn, sweet malt, bread, caramel and hops. Taste is flat - bread and corn with thin watery body.

Dixonian (1558) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2011
12oz bottle labeled as "Buffalo Butt". Reddish brown pour with some off-white head. Aroma is roasty with some caramel malt - flavors of caramel malt, grain, and some bitterness.

On tap at Rahr Brewery. Pours a pale red with thin head. Bready malt notes stand out. Only a light bitterness to the taste, and quite light in body with minimal finish. Lacks the boldness and complexity of other reds - more on par with Killian’s than what I would expect from a microbrew.
