Brewed with two barley malts and five varieties of American hops, Red Dog is a bold, yet uncommonly smooth beer. Golden in color, Red Dog is a full-flavored lager with medium body and crisp, refreshing finish. Introduced in 1994, Red Dog won the Gold for American-Style Lager/Ale or Cream at the 2002 Great American Beer Festival.

12oz can. Taste is very dirty, like someone spiked bud light with a fistful of dirt. Ample carbonation. Cheap swill. What else can I say. Yellow, corn, fizzy. Low boost.

Can: Roommates brought some leftovers home after a beer hockey game. Pale body, straw color, lots of life. Head like a 7-up, crackling & fizzling out quickly. No aroma. No nose at all. Maybe a little grain & metal. Nasty flavor of dirty corn husks, nickels, grain, & a pungently stale hop bitterness. Carbonation slashes your tongue up worse than Jason Voorhees. My expectations were at rock bottom, & they were met. This is some pretty awful shit.

Again, had plenty of this back in college. Pours an amber color with white head. Best when had really cold.

Reviewed from notes. Most of the time, this one was consumed right out of the can. For reviewing purposes, here are my observations. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy yellow color with a fair transparency about it as well. Carbonation was rapidly rising. There wasnít any head. The smell had some cooked corn with vegetal quality to it. The taste was sweet and metallic. On the palate, luckily what makes up for this one was a smooth crispness to roll over my tongue making it feel about a light to medium on the body. Overall, a pale lager thatís not exactly tasty or has a good aroma. Donít ask me why it has a decent mouthfeel. Weird.

Can at home from backlog notes 07. I donít know why I thought this may be better than other macro crap. Yellow, corn, pale grainy malts, nothing worth doing ever again.

Ah, Red Dog. The beer my parents used to bribe me and my friends with to help clean up the cottage and yard when opening it up for the summer. Maybe its just good memories, but I donít think it is that bad. Not much flavor at all, very watery, but nothing bad in the taste either. Either way, the only reason for me to ever drink it again would be to relive some old memories with some old friends.

The color was a very pale yellow. It formed a small head that quickly faded out. Red Dog has a light malt smell of cornflakes and hay. The palate is light and thin with light cereal like malt favor. At a little over three bucks for a six-pack of 16oz cans this one is good if you are really low on cash.
