Presentation: Poured from draft tap into Rahr Stormcloud IPA 20oz imperial pint glass.

A: The beer pours a really nice red and amber color, but without any head and very minimal lacing. Color is great though.

S: Maybe some cascade hops in the taste, now that I'm reading it is also a lager I'm understanding the flavor profile a bit more. Nothing really stand out in the nose, but it smells like a good beer.

T: Taste is very odd. As with all Rahr beers the malt profile is bitter and I don't like that about them. It stays on your palette for a while. This is not one of their better offerings because the lager bite hurts the bitterness further. Maybe some cascade hops in the taste too though, not my favorite variety.

M: Really average in every way. Carbonation, weight, are all just average. Not bad or good in any way.

D: I couldn't have more than one of these unless it was the only beer left at the brewery.

The beer poured into the glass slightly hazy golden copper with and off-white head which lasted well to lace the glass.

The aroma was caramel with a light spice and earthiness.

The flavor was astringent with light caramel and a decent hop bittering. The tannins in the flavor were not good at all.

The finish was more astringent mouthfeel with a lasting grainy and husky flavor into the aftertaste. The body was medium light. This was a very poorly crafted brew that while supposedly a lager was not clean at all and was not very tasty. Skip it.

12 ounce bottle.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass.

The beer poured with a one finger head. The foam quickly disappated and little lace was left behind. The beer is dark brown/red with a little bit of carbonation.

Only after reading the bottle, I could detect a slight caramel smell.

The taste of Rahr beer can be touch and go at times. I could taste the malt coming through. The taste wasn't bad, but not good.

The mouthfeel left a little bit to be desired.

Drinkability- average.

Not a bad beer, but I wish that my local brewery put out a better product.

Poured from a 12oz bottle with no dates. Nice light amber color with a good head to start. The smell was on the bland side and malty without any noticeable hops. I was really hoping to like this one since it's local and wanting to support local efforts. Unfortunately, the taste followed the smell and was pretty bland. It had no hops and was weak and a somewhat watery (mouthfeel very watery as well). There are others in the style that I like so not a style issue. This one is on-par with most macros for me. Don't recommend unless to mark off list. (2.5, NA, ML, N)

Well this was the loser of the bunch and I by loser I mean not as good as the others from Rahr. Nice color, amber quick disapearing white head. Smells of lager yeast and muncih malt sweetness. Taste is blandish and a little indifferent, there is some toffee kind of flavors here but not enough, still it is clean and it would do well for a session whistle wetting beer.

A-Clear and Quite Red. Thin off-white head dissipates quickly.

S-Skunky. This is my 2nd Rahr Offering (Ugly Pug Black) and it smelled the same way. Beyond the skunkiness, there is some roasted malt. No hops.

T-Skunky. It carries right over from the smell. Beyond that, it's pretty watery.

M-Thin and watery.

D-This beer has an acceptable drikability despite it's shortcomings. Not really enjoyable, but it's not hard to drink.

I really want to like this brewery because it's in DFW, but I'm afraid that I'm done trying thier less than stellar offerings.
