I say everthing tastes like Heineken, so I thought I better rate it - this is the middle of the road beer. Itís obviously better than Budweiser - but not better than most imports. I think it has a slightly shunky aftertaste.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2007 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), trace hops (flowers), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Even Grolsch is better, which speaks volumes.

The girl drinking the Red Dog will think your cool, but no one else will.

Unlike American macros, this had tast but the taste was downright offensive. Sour, horrible íbeerí one of the worst Iíve had.

Golden coloured. Sweet, rather malty, extremely one dimensional. Not exactly my drink of choice, but I donít mind drinking one if lacking better beers

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2008 Updated rating summer ’08. I add a full point on for summer purposes. Actually, compared to American macros, you really can tell the difference. It’s light but it doesn’t have the plasticky corn intrusiveness.
Flimsy, flimsy, flimsy. Intercourse in a boat. Not much aroma, appearance, flavor or palate to speak of. Only hint of distinctiveness is some slightly sour tinge, the kind that’s an unwelcome characteristic of many Euro imports. (I’m wondering if this is even a genuine import.) I had a regular Sam Adams right after this and it blew this out of the water, so to speak. Wouldn’t pay money for this again.
