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?

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.
