Had this back in the day, and this may be one of the only macro adjuncts I've never reviewed. So I bought a six pack of cans for $4 and here we are.

Appearance : Pale straw golden body, mostly transparent. The head is nice on this beer, and stays around awhile. I'm measuring two fingers, and eventually it dwindles down to a very foamy ring. Delicate and sparse lacing on the sides of the glass.

Aroma : Like any typical miller off-brand lager. Much like Milwaukee's Best. Lots of corn, chemical, clean water, faint hop leaf, skunk.

Taste : It's actually not bad. A light baked grain flavor hits first, followed by some faint vegetal hop, and ends crisp and a little bready with biscuit and crust. It leaves a dried pilsner flavor on the palate.

Mouthfeel : Light bodied, very carbonated, ends slightly pasty and dry.

Overall : For $3.99 it's a decent beer. I wouldn't spend much more than that on it though. At this point to me it's better than High Life. It's got some toasted bread crust flavors and I like that. Try it, you might just like it.

When the ancient Babylonians first conceived of alcohol they could scarcely have conceived that craft brew would reach such heights. In a word, Red Dog is magnificent. Cosmopolitan yet accessible. Pedestrian but somehow suave. Red Dog is the great equalizer, taking the complex flavor and exquisite texture of an expensive craft Beer but offering it a price point that puts it firmly in reach of the average 8th grader. If you drink no other beer before you die, drink a Red Dog.

Great stuff when you're eighteen and working up the courage to feel up your girlfriend for the first time. Sub-turpentine.
