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.

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.

Sammer (1056) - Plano, Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2010
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.

Ratebeer! Tell me how my bottle looks different and has a completely different name then the one I am forced to use as a rating. Nose is malty and sweet alongside with the taste then ends abruptly and fades in to some light sourness or an extreme dryness that is confusing. Bottle thank to Artitudebrew!

Available in bottles at The Backyard Grill, I had to look up the term “Vienna lager” to find out what the heck was up. According to Wikipedia, the Brewers Association describes this style of beer “as a reddish brown or copper colored beer with medium body and slight malt sweetness.” By this definition, Rahr’s Red is a good beer and I know the brewery just delivered a fresh batch to TBG – but I cannot love it. It’s a true reddish amber color; but with a thin body (to me) and only very modest malt flavor to it. The taste did not wear well throughout the 12-ounce bottle.

12 oz bottle at Cowboy Chow in Roanoke TX - labeled at "Buffalo Butt". Pours a clear copper-reddish color with a thin head. Mouthfeel is smooth. Taste of caramel malts, toasted bread, and earthiness along with some grassy hops. Mild sweetness, a hint of sourness and a moderate bitterness. Nicely balanced.
