Bow wow wow yippy yo yippy yea! Rde Doggy Daw-u-dogg! Yeah its a throw back but gots to review it. The Dawg is a typical miller product. Golden clear good carbonation that gives a sudsy white head for a short time. There is no smell beside grain. The taste is typical nothing real notible. The mouthfeel is standard...lawn mower beer!

Appearance Nice, clear yellow with a faint tinge of orange. The head came up nicely but, as is customary, went down in about ten seconds.
Smell This has a big grainy corn aroma that actually seems to be kind of smooth as the advertising promises.
Taste The creamed corn and grain mix together well enough, although I wouldnt call the flavor good by any stretch of the imagination. The unavoidable sweet finish wasnt as bad as most.
Mouthfeel Lightly carbonated and crisp. Alas, the big red bulldog is as thin as a continental spaniel with its hair shaved off.
Drinkability I cant actually recommend the Red Dog, but if you have to choose between this and an MGD Id go for this one.

10 onz can
Appearance: pale yellow color with a small head that disappear in seconds
Smell : cooked corn, sugars and grains
Taste : Sweetness,cooked veggies in the mix,carbonation and grains light bodied.
Drinkability : Not the best around, I would go with this one,
Note: The funny thing is they try to introduced this beer as a high quality beer in Puerto Rico, everybody knows this is sub-premiun , cheap beer.

I poured this one from a 16oz can into a pint glass. The color was a very pale yellow. [The dog is red not the beer] It formed a small head that quickly faded out. Red Dog has a light malt smell of cornflakes and hay. The palate is light and thin with light cereal like malt favor. At a little over three bucks for a six-pack of 16oz cans this one is good if you are really low on cash. It's also good at putting out the fire of an extra hot taco. Ha ha.

Presentation: 12 oz can with a few freshness codes that I was unable to decipher. Brewed by Plank Road Brewery on the label … a.k.a. Miller.
Appearance: Pale yellow with a medium sized bubble head that foams as quick as it dissipates to a thin, almost transparent lace. Clarity is crystal clear.
Smell: Boiled corn with a mildly acrid husk twang and strained malt sweetness in the aroma, grain and cereal grain to smell.
Taste: Moderate bodied with a lost carbonation from the rush during the pouring, most likely this beer is meant to be consumed out of the can. Faint crispness with a watered down malt mouth feel and flavour. Cereal grains leave a marked twang and the sweetness of the malt stays just below cloying. Hop bitterness is minimal and wrenched with the flavour being muted. Oddly the bitterness of the hops stays for a bit while it makes room for a light astringent grain to finish things up.
Notes: Hmm … one of the BIG “red” named beers. Funny thing is that it is not red in colour at all … not even close. You get what you pay for with this one, the taste reminds me of going out to clubs and drinking cheap beer and feeling like crap the next morning. You get the picture right?

Amazing clarity, straw yellow, mild head to it. Standard. Industrial metallic bitterness and corn syrup mixed with water from the aroma. Nothing red in appearance about this one.
Hops are present, or something that makes this bitter and tingly. Plenty of corn. Carbonation is high.
Rough aftertaste, flows from bitter to rancid. A very musty taste, like they wanted it to compliment a smoky bar with such an aftertaste.

Red Dog is really not as bad as most people think. It's a pretty easy to drink beer and for the price, it's tough to beat. Another beer that I'm surprised they bottle though as this beer is really meant to be drank from a 30-pack.
A - It's a very light golden color.
S - Not good. Smells like a stale fart.
T - Pretty decent. Not much aftertaste.
M - OK, feels like a light beer.
D - You can drink this stuff all day and not worry about getting full.

This is a great budget beer and one that I truly enjoy to have from time to time. In Indianapolis a 30 pack is around $15, and it is much better than some beers at the same price. For 50 cents a beer, it is an A plus. For beer overall, I would give Red Dog a solid B. It is a very good and refreshing CHEAP AAL.

I really tried hard to come up with a raison d'etre for this one. I bought it thinking it might be somewhat red, but it poured out of the bottle the usual piss-yellow cheap lager color. No smell whatsoever. Tastes just like what it is, a cheap generic lager. I'm impressed. I didn't think "Plank Road" could come up with something even less interesting than Icehouse. Good shot, Miller!
