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. unclemike (3124) - Ft.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2008 Brewery Tour A very clear true amber that leans to the redder end of the amber spectrum. The head is a nice sized, slightly sticky foam with appropriate staying power. The aroma is light. The flavor is extrememly clean a light toast and caramel malt in the middle and a small, slightly metallic bitterness lingers in the finish. Borders on bland, but definitely a techinically flawless lager.

Stockyards ina bottle. poured almost a light soda color. tan head which stayed a while. Hints of orange. overall a good beer.
Toasty malt and caramel like aroma. Amber color that pours pretty clear with almost no head. Thanks to rollinhard for hooking me up with another tasty Tejas drink. Flavor is a little light but refreshing. Some bread, caramel, and prune flavors. Finish is quick and fades into a toasted bread deliciousness. mar (5417) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2008

white 2 finger head and a very dark amber color on the pour. the smell is not that appealing honestly but it tastes much better than it smells.
this beer pours a deep reddish amber with a medium tan head. the aroma is crap (j/k lol). Actually it is a little malty with a hint of spices. almost like cinnamon. The flavors are not that impressive, medium carbonation with malts and maybe a hint of cinnamon... I really didn’t have too much hope for this beer. Oh Well... Not too bad to frink I guess but not really that good either. Cheers!

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2008 This beer is pretty good, it grows on you....Had it at the Rahr & Sons Brewery. Poured a clear dark red with off white head with ok retention. Has medium high carbonation. Nice malty tast with a hint of dark malt and good use of hop’s, and it has a very nice, light bitterness. Is a great session beer.
Also, it appears to taste exactly the same as the Rahr’s Red....I do not see or taste the difference.AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 7, 2008

Had this beer on tap free at the brewery itself. Decient beer, nice red amber color, decient head from the tap. Nice malt flavor and good use of hops, has a nice little bitter kick at the end. Would buy.
Clear amber with a foamy white head. Mild smell of grainy,spicy malts. Smooth medium body. Mild bready malt taste followed by mildly bitter spicy finish. Hits the spot on a hot afternoon. 6806 Goodgrief (2029) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 2, 2008
June 2006 - It’s rare that I have a beer this horrible. Pour looked like iced tea, no head at all. Flavor was flat and like drinking a liquified dog in a cardboard box. I drank about 3 oz of it and it was all I could take and down the drain it went. Truly memorable...and not in a good way. chef201atc (261) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Red tinted light amber pour with a scant off-white creamy looking head. Aroma is malty, earthy, with a bit of sweet vanilla fudge. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Flavor starts with sweet maltiness, almost caramel like in the middle and a dry finish. popephred (268) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2007
This beer poured a dark amber body with a large off-white head. I poured this beer at room temperature, which gave the beer maximum head retention. However, when I was pouring, I could see that the head was diminishing quickly. This beer had little to no aroma, which was surprising, given the temperature. The body of the beer was smooth, almost watery, which allowed the bitterness of the hops to come come out. Some sweetness, but it took a few sips to find it. This beer had little to no carbonation, which tells me that this was meant to be served ice cold. Perhaps if I chilled this beer or had it from tap, I might appreciate it more, as it stands, however, I really have reservations about the beer crafting ability of the great state of Texas...
