(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.

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: Iím 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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2010 On tap at the BALLPARK!!!! (Labeled as Texas Red). It is VERY dark for a lager, but thatís better than most. Dark brown. Little aroma. Highly roasted taste. Roasted caramel and burnt nuts. Very dark for a lager, yet highly enjoyable. I prefer this over any of the macro lights that they offer at the park, especially if Iím gonna pay 8.50 for one beer!

This beer had a medium body, slick feel, average carbonation, long finish, a nutty flavour. It was rather woody, amber colored with a hint of orange but very clear. When poured, it left a white foam. I would characterize this as medium sweet, very bitter, but lightly sour beer.

12 oz bottle (labeled "Buffalo Butt"), thanks to Soonah. Pours a hazy rust color with respectable off-white head. The aroma is quite toasty with some faint caramel hints, a bit of iced tea, shoe polish, and super-ripe papaya. The flavor is lightly toasted malts, a little bit of herbal hop, and some distant fruity notes. The finish is slightly dry and carbonic, leaving a faint leathery aftertaste. Not bad for what it is.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle sampled was named Buffalo Butt. Small nose with no hops and a hint of malt. Quite clear, head is thin but does form a nice lace. Over attenuated and thin, very one dimensional. Tart and a bit sour with more carbonation than expected. An appropriately named beer.

Bottled. Ho-hum, average beer. Everything just seemd a little muddled and thin. Not bad just not something I would try again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at Dallas/Fort Worth airport. Brown/read pour with thin foamy head. Lacing. Light aroma of sweet malts and floral hops, light fruit. Simple and smooth. Decent body. Flavor matches aroma with a light nuttiness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A leafy, tannic aroma. About what you’d expect in the land of Shiner. Moderate acidity, moderate bittering, light nutty sweetness. Medium light body. Picked it up at a mini mart in Grapevine, TX. If you’re faced with a Rahr’s choice, then opt for the schwarz. Nothing very special.
