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.

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.
