I poured 16 oz of this stuff into one of my trusty highballs.
Nothing out of the ordinary, golden yellow in colour, not much in the way of foam, and what little there is disappears very quickly.
Acrid, smokey, and a bit bitter. Almost no sign of grain anywhere in there.
I'll review it if I ever detect it. If I drank this stuff blindfolded, I'd mistake it for soda water. The only reason this does not get a 1 flat out is that I've had beers that actually tasted bad, not just like nothing.
This stuff feels like I'm drinking dilute (0.5 M) carbonic acid. For those non-chemists reading this, loads of fizz and bubbles, signifying nothing. When I managed not to get a mouthfull of bubbles, this stuff was very thin.
This stuff is too fizzy to quaff properly, and it doesn't have enough (read any) flavour to enjoy on a sip-by-sip basis. As for a decent buzz, I drank a 16-ounce can of this stuff and I was still able to type this review. For shame! All I can say is Thank God I Only Bought a Four-Pack.

My story with Red Dog began a long while ago. It was a typical morning and I was headed to my local liquor store here in Rice Lake, WI, where I was planning on purchasing my usual 24 ounce miller lite. I had brought exact change to buy the Miller, but to my dismay, there had been a sudden increase in price of Miller and I no longer had enough for it. Because of this, I was forced to settle for a less expensive beer, and quickly took a Red Dog out of the cooler instead. I was disappointed while leaving the liquor store, but my sadness was quickly alleviated when I took my first sip of Red Dog. I found both its flavor and smoothness to be uncommon. Since then, I have not bought any other kind of beer. Red Dog's flavor is bold, yet smooth, and takes the edge off of a stressful morning at work. Red Dog is a beer that pairs perfectly with a nice carton of Marlboros and in my experience is best enjoyed early in the morning (around 8am). Red Dog is an overall flawless beer that perfectly embodies all qualities that an American stout should want to present.
