Rahr & Sons Texas Red has a medium-to-thin, cream-colored head, a clear, rust-red, bubbly appearance, and some lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of mild, sweet, tea-like breadiness, and the flavor is of sweet bread crust, tea, and very subtle hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Rahr & Sons Texas Red finishes crisp and refreshing.

I'm surprised of all the low reviews. Great beer for a hot day. Very clean going down. Near refreshing in fact. Suttle hops with a crisp finish.

Has the right idea, this is a remarkable red for a Texas brew. I am actually proud this brew is from Texad,after tasting over 6 fine red ales in the PNW I am proud to be a Native Texan, sure hope there is more to come in Texas. These guys are obviously learning and they will soon master the craft.

I found this one to be pretty typical of what I think of when I see something that's labeled "red." Nicely colored quite reddish, with a good head and lace. Aroma and flavor are pretty malty with a nice hops bite and a slightly lingering bitterness from the hops. Medium bodied and smoothly carbonated. Overall I see no reason why I wouldn't buy it again when I'm in the mood for a red. This brewery hasn't disappointed me so far.

A-It is a slightly hazy amber color with a red tint to it when held up to the light. It has a large almost white head that lingers and leaves a lace
S-grain, yeast, malt and some hop aroma
T-roasted malt with a good mix of hops in the aftertaste that makes this a beer to try again.
M-medium or light body with an active or high carbonation
O-this beer had a combination of grain, yeast, roasted, hops and malt smells and taste that make this a beer to try again
