This is one of those beers that claims to be something special on the can, while in reality it is how much hooch can you get for $1 or so beer. That said, it’s not as bad as most in this category. Sure it has all the "paper bag malts" flaws like too much corn, and some adjuncty oddness, but it is sweet and easy to drink. It smells beter than it tastes, sweet and light with an offish finish and very little hoppiness. Avoid.

Rated from old notes. So non-deScript it defies deScription. Weak, bland, watery drink with bubbles and some fizz. That pretty much sums it up. Do not buy it, and if gifted, nod politely, smile, and drainpour at the first opportunity.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2016 Medium bodied, full flavor and absulutely NOT watery and bad (quite the opposite). Piney. Golden color when poured into glass. Medium carbonation.

Originally rated on 2/6/08- Well i guess you get what you pay for.. thin and weak, and the little flavor that was there was awful. Tastes as if it were brewed with dog. Avoid this beer.

Rated based on notes taken 26 Oct 2012 -- Bought a 6 pack of tall boys. Haha this beer is good because of it’s nostalgia and representation. Not because it tastes good.

Uncommonly smooth is the most accurate statement of any beer company. Red dog is a light, refreshingly crisp beer that is more underrated than Kareem Abdul Jabar (the NBA leading scorer, defensive force, yet never mentioned in the greatest of all time debates). Red dog is one of the few beers to quinch my thirst on a hot summer day. I love it!!!

Yeah, this is about as bad as it gets. Would rather have bud. Maybe slightly better than PBR and old Milwaukee. Haven’t had it in YEARS, and probably never will again. The typical piss lager. Do educated consumers still really buy this stuff?

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.

"soda water with beer flavoring"...i like that. throw in some alcohol, and you have a red dog. there is no good reason to drink this...so please do yourself a favor and get a real beer."
