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.

Can. Yellow pour with white head. Smells of malt. Tastes of sweet malt and something funky. Don't let this one warm up at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

24 oz. can at 1UP in Denver. I poured some of the end into my buddyís empty glass, so I can confirm that it does, in fact, look like a typical American pale lager. It also smells and tastes like one. Dry, with pale malts, a little grass, some mineral and metallic notes, and no skunk. Light-bodied, with fairly high carbonation. This is actually the first time Iíve ever tried this beer, somehow. Itís as expected.

Can. Clear pee color, very tiny white top. Nasty skunk smell. Taste is wet corn chips.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 24 oz can. Finally, I get to rate this pig. I was just about to rate it from memory from my college days because I couldnít seem to find it in a single can. Hello, Wisconsin! Well, itís how I remember it. Pale piss yellow, quickly fading white head. Crappy adjunct lager thatís just a tick above Bud Light, Miller Lite, etc. Half-ounce for me, 23.5 ounces for the sink.

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.
