12 fl oz. can, with best by date September 15, 2014 printed on the bottom of the can. Gifted to me from a friend, who acquired it as part of the 30 rack. Another brew from the bottom of the barrel from Miller Brewing Co. Expectations are beyond awful.

Poured into a Miller Lite pint glass.

A - It pours the usual typical clear piss water straw color. Two to three fingers of bubbly white head with an aggressive pour that dies down to nothing quickly. No lacing. Doesn't look like much, doesn't look terrible; it is what it is. 2.5

S - The smell is virtually nothing. Cooked cereal grains and malty adjuncts with a mild hint of solventy alcohol.

T - The taste is the same - cooked grains / corn / adjuncts. The typical generic shitty beer taste going on here. Some syrupy / sugary / honey type sweetness. Indistinguishable from any of the other cheap adjunct ridden beers I've had in recent memory. 1.5

M - The feel is smooth, I suppose, with a bit of a rought / coarse / crisp carbonation. 2.5

Overall, like I said it is nearly indistinguishable from the rest of the swill. If I was given this and a Miller Lite together and tasted them blind, I might have a hard time telling which was which. Drink it if you've got it, I guess.

Red Dog -----2/5.

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 don’t 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.

A trip down memory lane in the worst way. The beer pours a near clear yellow with a fizzy head. The smell is metallic with some rice smells coming through. Taste was the same. I remember it as one of the first beers I ever had and almost turned me away from beer as a whole. Not good by any stretch but it was interesting to relive this one.

It's a nostalgic experience for me. It was the very first beer that got me drunk as a senior in high school. I also remember the commercials and swag from the mid-90's. It's my go-to beer for just wanted to drink one after another when working in the garage or in the yard.
