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.

(Draught at brewery) The beer pours a really nice red and amber color, but without any head and very minimal lacing. Color is great though. Nose is cascade hops, lager style aromas too. Taste is very odd. As with all Rahr beers the malt profile is bitter and I don’t like that about them. It stays on your palette for a while. This is not one of their better offerings because the lager bite hurts the bitterness further. Maybe some cascade hops in the taste too though, not my favorite variety. Carbonation, weight, are all just average. Not bad or good.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Bottle: Pours a dark amber color with a thin head. The nose is sweet with light raisin and cardboard, thin caramel and light roast. The flavor is bitter and dry with a light thin mouthfeel and a metallic finish. The roast doesn’t quite come through enough before the bitterness kicks in so you get this weird bitey caramel smelling beer. Not balanced, perhaps that’s what "a Texas beer" means.

I know I’ve rated this. Must have lost it with all the alias beer merging. Had in bottles as Red and Buffalo Butt as well as on tap at the Rahr Brewery. Pours a deep red with a little off white head. Smells of malts. Tastes like caramel, malt, and nuts.

Bottle as Buffalo Butt; thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a ruby amber with a three finger tan head. Nice mildly roasted malt aroma. Medium body with frothy carbonation. A hint of sour, perhaps, with mild herb/hop and light caramel. It’s certainly bitter, but in a mild way. Probably good for washing down food.

travita (3729) - Frisco, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2009
On tap at the ballpark in Arlington last night. Amber to brown in color with a thin beige colored head. The smell is caramel, malts, roast, grains. The taste is the weak, some malts, some hops. Better than Bud.
Earlier Rating: 3/18/2008 Total Score: 2.5
Amber to red in color with an ok head. Aroma is malty with a touch of hops and that goes for the flavor as well. Some biscuit like flavors as well. Seemed weak and watery though.

bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2009
(Draught) Pours an amber-brown body with a moderate beige head. Aroma of roasted nuts (dominates), earth, and caramel. Flavor of roasted malt, caramel, and grassy hops. Resembles more of a Vienna lager rather than a Premium.
Earlier Rating: 1/9/2005 Total Score: 3.2
(Bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel and mild hops. Malt base flavor with caramel and hops.

12 oz bottle of Buffalo Butt courtesy of ericandersnavy. Pours a slightly cloudy amber-brown color with a small foamy beige head. The aroma is moderate and earthy with sweet malts, rye biscuit and dust. The flavor is light and indistinct until the finish kicks in and then I get iced tea, nuts, and bready malts. The palate is thin and metallic. Overall: I’m glad for the chance to try this as I kinda like weird named beers, but thats where the novelty ends, this is no Moose Drool.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2010 bottle of Buffalo Butt. appears I liked more than most.. couldy rusty pour with thin foamy head. Sweet malt aroma and taste. Great first 1/2 of beer; not much in second half. Easy/smooth going down will p/u a 6 pk re rate 3/2010 lowered rating from 3.3 to 2.8; think I would rather a shiner; a little too malty sweet
