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.

Dark brown pour with a white head. Malty nose followed an even richer flavor that has hints of nut in it. Smooth finish and a full body on this one.

Pours clear and quite red. Thin off-white head dissipates quickly. Smells skunky. This is my 2nd Rahr Offering (Ugly Pug Black) and it smelled the same way. Beyond the skunkiness, there is some roasted malt. No hops. Tastes skunky too. It carries right over from the smell. Beyond that, itís pretty watery. Thin and watery. This beer has an acceptable drikability despite itís shortcomings. Not really enjoyable, but itís not hard to drink. I really want to like this brewery because itís in DFW, but Iím afraid that Iím done trying thier less than stellar offerings.

Pours a dark red color with a white head. The aroma is mainly caramel malt. The flavor is caramel malt and toffee with some earthy hop flavor and bitterness. There is also some nuttyness in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and slightly creamy with low carbonation.

(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 donít 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.

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 doesnít quite come through enough before the bitterness kicks in so you get this weird bitey caramel smelling beer. Not balanced, perhaps thatís what "a Texas beer" means.

I know Iíve 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. Itís certainly bitter, but in a mild way. Probably good for washing down food.

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.
