So, typical red color. Really bitter aftertaste tough for me to want to try another from this brewery. Aroma is sweet initial taste, almost like butter??? But seriously too bitter for a red. Good head.

This beer was easy on the palate not to hoppy but you never expect that from a red. It was good but nothing to rant and rave about.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes, 5/11/11:
Rep’d Cowtown all the way by pouring a 12 oz bottle into my TCU pint glass.
Aroma: Very average here. Smell of biscuity malt and slight hops. Typical amber lager here in every way.
Appearance: Nice amber color with a quickly dissipating white foamy head. No lacing.
Taste: Pretty typical here as well. Again, the sweet, biscuity malts. Slight hops in the finish. Got a little of the tartness that others mentioned.
Palate: A little on the thin side for an amber lager. Carbonation was light. Mouthfeel clean and a little thin on the finish.
Overall: Good session beer to support my local brewery with. Nothing special, but nothing wrong with it, either.

Picked this up at a convenience store on the way to a friend’s for dinner since I forgot to hit up Spec’s for something good.
Dark amber with an off-white head. Caramel and spice aroma. Moderate sweetness. Tastes of malt with some honey and citrus. Not much finish.
Easy to drink.

Enjoyed as Buffalo Butt. Bread and malt on every pull. I was surprised by this one due to the thin look of the poured beer. The flavor was deep and encouraged me drink another. A heavier body with a stronger a/c would be ideal but this one is on my "likes" list.

Tastes basically like a Killians Red with a little better ingredients. Not offensive and well balanced but nothing special.

Bottle to glass courtesy of crajun, thanks Kevin! Nice amber pour with moderate white head. Aroma has bready and caramel notes. Nice slightly sweet finish. Not my favorite style, but is a decent session beer
