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 Cricket’s Grill, Waco
In December it was available in many pubs around Texas, probably a re-edition of the Yellow Rose Buffalo Butt; more than one bartender confirmed that the beer came from Rahr


Light amber color. It seems to be a reasonable beer (an Ale probably, smooth and with a delicate malt taste), but spoiled by a light medicine aftertaste.

Draught at the brewery
Hazy amber color. Aroma of simple Lager. The flavor is not much better, with just a touch of caramel.

bu11zeye (11933) - 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.

(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.

bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 16, 2009
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.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2007
12oz bottle acquired in trade with bu11zeye (thanks!). Poured a medium amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toasted malts, bready, caramel and a dash of citrus. Tastes of caramel, toasted malts and lighter breadiness.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2005
Gingerman, Dallas. Little head, dark orange and red appearance. Very light carbonation leaves it flat with a tobacco and orange flavor. Sticky and wet caramel malts... very sweet and refreshing but not enough to overcome its flaws.

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 8, 2008
UPDATED: APR 12, 2008 Listed as Buffalo Butt. Large, lightbrown head that fizzes away quickly. Clear breown body. Basic, sweet, cereal malt aroma with some honey and spices. Watery, nutty, the salty taste. Pretty fizzy. Talked to the brewers at Rahr, Red and Buffalo Butt are the EXACT same beers, there is no difference, end of debate.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 11, 2005
Pours a clear copper brown with a thick, but short-lived, fizzy off-white head. Aroma is a nicely sweet caramel malty blend with some lager yeast character. Body starts with decent viscosity and caramel maltiness. Some toasted malt flavor shows up toward the semi-dry finish. This smooth, well balanced brew would make a nice session beer. Thanks JCW!
