From the 12 fl. oz. can no. 02099-C50979. Sampled Jan 30, 2009. Taste buds can be an amazing thing. Either that or I just got a better sample than some of the previous reviewers.
Appearance - Typical golden-yellow like all the other cheaper macros. However my can ended up with about a two inch deep foamy, bubbly head that diminished afoter about 2 minites.
Smell - Better than most. I actually did notice a hint of barley malts. In fact that aroma was more noticeable to me than the usual grassy, corny, and metallic aroma you tend to get in these cheaper macros.
Mouthfeel - Nothing special here. After swirling it around the tongue it breaks down into straight carbonation within seconds.
Taste - A tiny touch of malts in the flavor but it is a bit overpowered by that corny, grassy, metallic taste you get in cheap macros. It finishes dry.
Its commecial description declares that it won awards in 1994 and 2002 and I have to say the taste is better than I expected. So the fact that it might have picked up the random trophy along the way is not necessarily surprising to me.

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.
