Pours a deep amber color with a full light beige head and lots of carbonation that dies down after a minute. It has a sweet aroma that is slightly malty. Fairly carbonated and thin, but not a totally bad flavor. I’d prefer a bit more character, but oh well. Not bad, but not great either. Doesn’t stand out.

Poured into a Bob’s ’47 pint glass. Pours medium brown, slight reddish hue. Big thick creamy head sticks around. Smells of dark roast malt, coffee. Light on the palate. Thought it would be much more full tasting. Easy drinking with bitter aftertaste. It’s just too watery for my liking for this style. It’s not objectionable, but I sure as hell wouldn’t go out of my way for this either. kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2008
A full amber color with a tint of red. A good pour, has a strong 1 inch thick and frothy off white head. Clear to see through and not many bubbles. Aroma of good malt, yeast and dough. Has that bready doughy taste like but its good. Reminds me of Fat Tire, but better. Rahr Red has a nice hop character. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Well behaved finish. Decent carbonation and bite, and I don’t think it’s artificial. This is a good beer. Should be enjoyed by more people. BMan1113VR (7930) - 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. unclemike (3197) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - MAR 23, 2008
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 (5457) - 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! SphinxTX (2878) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2008
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 (7080) - 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
