4.03/5 rDev +25.2%
I poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass...
The liquid was brown with maroon hues, there was an off white head that clung to the glass and left some lacing.
It smells of caramel malt, toast, and butter.
I could taste buttered biscuits and some herbal hops, there is a lemony accent with a bready, dry finish.
This beer is light, soft and smooth, there is a slight bite on the sides of the tongue.
I usually don't go for ambers but this one is well balanced between hops and malt and it's not too sweet. I think it's better than most typical ambers.

3.9/5 rDev +21.1%
Pours reddish-brown with a good sized tah head that sits a bit and fades with some meager chunks of lacing left behind. Smells earthy, malty and metallic. Tastes malty with some sweetness running through. Very mild hops balance things out a bit. Has a light to medium mouth-feel and is well carbonated. Seems to be well crafted overall. There's not a lot going on with this one, but it actually works here, as you could have a few and not get bored. Could this beer possibly suffer ratings-wise due to it's style? Surely not.

Buffalo Butt is a bit of an oddity. It was originally brewed unfiltered by the Yellow Rose brewery in San Antonio. They went out of business, and Great Grains in Dallas picked up the beer, brewing it competently for a while, though at the end the quality SHARPLY declined. Now Rahr has picked up the beer, with a label nearly identical to the old. This tastes a lot better than the product did at Great Grains, but there's nothing really exciting about it.
The color is clear brown amber, with a small initial head that fades after a few minutes. Pleasantly malty aroma, not too sweet. Flavor is quite clean, yeast-wise, with an overlay of rather nutty malt and a moderate bitterness (accompanied by a lightly floral hop flavor). It has a nice crisp texture and medium-light body.
Really, a bit of a generic amber. Nothing bad, but nothing exciting.

3.59/5 rDev +11.5%
Appearance: Pours a crystal clear amber color with a decent enough head that also leaves an adequate amount of lacing behind
Smell: Hints of caramel and grain but not much in the way of aromatics
Taste: Caramel candy, up front, with a bit of grainy husk keeping the sweetness in check
through the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: A pleasant enough sipper, particularly if you like a good caramel

Pours a dark red color with a white head. The aroma is mainly caramel malt. The flavor is caramel malt and toffee with some earthy hop flavor and bitterness. There is also some nuttyness in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and slightly creamy with low carbonation.

3.55/5 rDev +10.2%
Medium-high sweetness - cotton candy aroma. Fruity tartness - floral.
Rusty amber. Crazy filtered clarity. Medium head that quickly resides to nothing.
Light lager - floral hop flourishes and a pleasant fruitiness. Medium to medium-light bitterness. Light toasty grainy malt warmth.
Thin body. Mild carbonation. Toasty fizzy.
Easy to drink and refreshing. Red/Vienna Lager stylings. Similar to Rahr's Red, but I think it's different. Fun to try, I like the label.
