2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

(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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft sample at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Festival 2012. Pours a nice reddish-amber with a finger of off-white head. The aroma and flavor are pretty bland- no hop character at all, some light caramel and amber malts, a little toast and cereal- just not much to it. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Nothing offensive here, just weak.
