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.

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

I havenít drank this since the 90ís. I only remember the caps would have a little saying on the bottom. The beer was not good. Memories!

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.

This is probably the worst beer I have ever tasted. I drank it on accident after a friend offered me some and I will try to avoid it in the future!

This beer is hard to find these days. It is an American pale lager with some distinctive qualities. The pour is yellow and the head is white, fizzy, and thin. However, the flavor has a little extra dryness and a noticeable hop presence. This is smooth but substantive for the style.

Twenty four ounce can for 75 cents. LIght gold pour with a massive white head. Aroma is not too bad. A little lemon, some metal. Flavor is pretty bad. Iíve been drinking some bad beers lately just to get some cheap ticks, and this beer has the worst flavor of all of them. It tastes like sweet metal corn water. I should have just bought an IPA and called it a day.

Can: Pours clear, pale gold with a soapy white head. Grain malt aroma. Corn and grain taste....watery. I didnít know they even still made this....nor can I think of a reason why they do.
