This is pretty bad, but to me it beats out some like because it at least has some ok flavour.
It's appearnace is pretty standard, but slightly on the higher side for cheap/basic US macro lager due to a decent head: it's gold and bubbly with a very big white head thar diminishes only slowly to a thin, lasting foamy top.
The aroma is the weakest point of the beer: it smells of dust, a hint of moldy towels, and perfume. It's actually slightly unpleasant.
The taste and feel are better, but not much. It is slightly roughly alcoholic and has a slightly rough, watery feel. There is a strong, corn tortilla taste and nothing else. This at least gives it flavour but it gets really tiresome. Also, although watery, its strong corn quality gives it a soft fullness that makes it a bit heavy and results in a beer that is not even crisp or refreshing, usually one of the strong points of decent cheap lagers.

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.
