Draught: This one pours a fairly clear reddish-amber color. There was a bit of an off white head on it. It left a little lacing. The aroma isn’t too bad. Pretty typical malts with some grassy notes, a decent enough lager aroma. The taste is also good, nothing really special, just good and easy to drink. Malts, some bitterness and biscuit notes. Pretty smooth. Easy to drink.

Poured from a bottle into a Hofbrau mug.
Drank on the side with a bowl of chili.
Not "Red Amber Lager", but "Texas Red" (from the six pack).

A - Amber (duh) with a thin layer of white foam.

S - Typical lager aroma; kind of creamy and malty.

T - Pretty good, nice balance: some malt and some hops.

M - Some carbonation, but not too much for the style. Light, but flavorful.

Summary - Nice. I like a lager every now and then and Rahr's is a pretty good one. It's not outstanding, but enjoyable, and it goes nice with some chili or maybe a burger.

Poured from a bottle into a lint glass. Solid two finger had with sticky lace all the way down. Nice coppery color with good bubble support.

Nose is a good balance of caramel and malt, hing of hoppiness, but not a lot.

Taste lines up with the nose. Maltiness in the front end with the caramel and hop bitterness coming through in the finish.

Good, slightly thick, mouthfeel makes this beer very drinkable and enjoyable. I'm not much of a lager fan and prefer ales, but this has a flavor complexity and solid maltiness that may change my mind.
