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.

Have to hand it to this brew: itís the only beer Iíve had capable of giving me a raging hangover immediately after drinking half a can. Sickly yellow, no head, aroma of rubbing alcohol and rotting corn, and tastes like rented malt liquor. Avoid at all costs. If youíre broke and desperate for a buzz, shell out the $2.50 for a bottle of Olde English. Itíll do the job and itís a vast improvement over this.

More like the piss of a Red Dog. Honestly, itís that damn bad. Even if you are broke, avoid this if itís even still available.

If youíre in college with no money, then Red Dog is your beer! But if you like a good flavor with your beer, this is one to avoid. Red Dog pours a very pale yellow color and has the familiar scent that American Adjunct Lagers have. There is very little flavor almost to the point that it tastes like beer flavored water. On the upside it does drink fairly smooth and does not leave a bad after taste.

Can. A terrible beer meant for underage pounders. Looks and tastes like waste. I do not like this.

This beer never was very good in any way but my friends and I used to drink a lot of it in bottles because of the cool caps you could get.

Goes down smooth. Not sure of that a complement, really. No foul aftertaste or anything though. Passes the time waiting at a bus stop on the Panamerican highway for a bus to take me to David.

I remember when this beer was introduced and the blitz of advertising it produced. I drank it only once, on a trip from Chicago back to Kirksville. Creamier than most comparable beers, but that is about the only difference.

Used to drink this garbage in college. It was cheap, but that's about it. Choke it down and get ready for a nasty hangover. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gnore the beer snobs that trash this beer, their uber sophisticated palletes will never be able to appreciate the awesomeness of this beer. This beer won a gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival last year for a reason, itís one of the best American adjunct lagers on the planet. This beer pours from the can looking like liquid gold. The smell would probably bring Bob Mckenzie to his knees. It tastes like God just gave me a golden shower. Overall this is one of the easiest drinking beers ever created and should be a constant in everyones beer rotation. Good luck finding a better beer for the price, because it isnít about to happen.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear pale gold with about a half finger of white head. Aroma of grains, slightly skunky. Taste is light sweet. Corn, grains, a little skunk and...some caramel? Yeah there is absolutely some caramel in there. Medium bodied with a creamy and slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. I wont seek it out, but Iíll drink this one while watching the election results roll in.
