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.

From notes, 5/11/11: Rep’d Cowtown all the way by pouring a 12 oz bottle into my TCU pint glass. Aroma: Very average here. Smell of biscuity malt and slight hops. Typical amber lager here in every way. Appearance: Nice amber color with a quickly dissipating white foamy head. No lacing. Taste: Pretty typical here as well. Again, the sweet, biscuity malts. Slight hops in the finish. Got a little of the tartness that others mentioned. Palate: A little on the thin side for an amber lager. Carbonation was light. Mouthfeel clean and a little thin on the finish. Overall: Good session beer to support my local brewery with. Nothing special, but nothing wrong with it, either.

Ok so I saw this beer at my local bar and I had never really had this beer!! Because I am a proud Texan I had to try this one. I had never tried a red beer either... now let's get down to the nuts and bolts.... color is an amber color lots of carbonation. Head settles to bout 1/8 inch. Reminds me of a bock beer. I like it try it you might too. Cheers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2017 Draft. It poured dark amber with an off-white head and minimal lacing. The aroma is malty with notes of caramel. It is slightly bitter. Ok amber.

I just can't get down with red beers. If you make a strawberry blonde and do a half and half red and blonde it's ok but normally the red is not something I go after. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Iron Cactus in Dallas. Not very interesting with minimal malt. Everything is restrained with no real off flavors. Meh.

Ok

This brew pours a light red, I expected something a little bolder. And perhaps I anticipated a bolder taste too because of red ales I have had in the past. This Red is somewhat malty finishing with some caramel. Not going to reach out and grab you but not bad. But not a beer I will seek out. I prefer a more aggressive taste.

Tap at Dallas airport. Pour is red amber and head fades quick. Nose matches style, nothing more. Body is lite and easy, with malt dominating a pretty simple Mix. Smooth and would be good on a hot Texas day. Would have again but won't seek out.

Fatehunter (2640) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Thin head on a clear dark body. Aroma is mild something. Taste is mild caramel and hay. Easy but mild.
