2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft sample at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Festival 2012. Pours a nice reddish-amber with a finger of off-white head. The aroma and flavor are pretty bland- no hop character at all, some light caramel and amber malts, a little toast and cereal- just not much to it. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Nothing offensive here, just weak.

Red it is, well sorta. Lots of caramel malt taste without being overly sweet and some hop bitterness at the end.

Good Ale. Has a smooth start with a finish that is not to strong, but you remember you just has a beer.

I had this at "the Back Porch" in Grapevine in a bottle. Brown color, it’s a medium-bodied beer, malty taste, and bitter aftertaste, really good. It’s a chameleon of styles.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a darker amber with an average off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and roast. Taste is malt, caramel, nuts, and some hops. A bit thin. Not exciting but very drinkable.

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.

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.
