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.

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.

Bottled. Poured clear, medium amber with a fluffy, sticky cap of beige head.. set up great in the glass. The aroma picked up soft bread and biscuity malts with light earthy accents.. just a little soapy.. very pleasant. The flavor found more of the bready sweetness at the core, kissed by a touch of honey.. mild leafy and dry earthy bitterness surrounded.. slightly tangy on the finish, with tasty caramel joining in. Light-bodied with tight carbonation on the palate.. well-balanced and very drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a deep red-brown with a white, large-grained head. The nose is very, very strange; something in it is reminiscent of a musty closet in which is stored several fresh fish. The taste is the same -- it’s not bad, exactly, but it’s very very odd. Elements of balsamic vinegar and herbal notes to the fore. I wonder if this beer is turned or infected...

Pours dark orange amber, clear, crisp appearing; aroma mild; taste is clean, more bitterness than expected; ok for first impression of Rahr tour

12oz bottle as "Buffalo Butt" from blutt59, thanks Bob! Pours a cloudy, medium brown, amber tinted body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a good amount of lacing throughout. Aroma is sweeter cereal grains and caramel, honey, and a bit of a fruitiness that gives off a slight acidity. Flavor is better. A bit more of a spice and herbal hopping to balance the sweetness of the caramel, honey, and cereals. Just a touch of fruit comes out at the end, but doesn’t give off the acidity from the aroma. Finishes very dry with a light-moderate, spicy bitterness that leaves a medium length aftertaste. Lighter body and somewhat watery at times with a moderately fizzy carbonation. Overall, a pretty bland beer, but easy drinking and a decent hop bite to it. Sessionable.

Clear reddish-brown with a tiny head. Aroma of caramel and biscuit. Flavor is slightly malty with a hint of bitterness. Somewhat thin. Weak and not very interesting overall.

Pint on draft during a brewery tour. Clean clear red brew that has pretty good brown head retention that was not overly thick. No aroma hops but some maltly aroma’s like a Vienna should. Not a heavy malty taste, some carmal, no hop flavors but a bitterness dry bite on the palate at the end - in a good way, it was just right any more bitterness would be too much though.

Bottle. Pours dark reddish amber. Not much going on here, slight malts and hint of bitter hops. Pretty uneventful.

Amber colored pour from bottle with a nice white head. Aroma is roasted malt and caramel. Taste is malty and nutty, with some light bitterness. Uneventful finish. Average.

Labeled as Buffalo Butt. Dark amber, good head. What aroma there is, is malt and not much hops. The taste is beer - a nutty and toasty malt taste with just enough hops to get a bit of bitterness. Finish is some sweetness and bitterness.
