I loved and miss this beer. I bought it in kegs and LOTS of 30 packs when it was available and oh so many good times were had. Please bring back Red Dog!!

Don't understand why score so low. Loved this beer when I could find it here in the south.

Wasn't aware this was still in production, certainly haven't seen it in NH in decades. We would occasionally dip into these for a change from the other equally swill beers of the day, rarely ever able to afford Budweiser.

12oz can. Can’t say no to free beer (but maybe you should sometimes). My father-in-law bought this because it had a dog on the label. That might have been the best feature

(12 oz can, APR 2020; bought cold single at local basic liquors... poured into a 14 oz mug)

L: inch-high foam on pour, sitting atop a polished-clear, brass-colored liquid; the foam is actually relatively dense and glossy, receding surprisingly slow... holds a half-moon crescent collar and, dang, if there isn't 3-4 thick bands of lace - huh?

S: very pale, almost flour-like, vaguely corn-flaky grain smell dominates, mellow toasted note; mildly grassy-herbal overtone

T: apple juicy ester(?) up front, with a sudden surge of cereal-like (again, corn flakes), dried grassy/earthy grain midway; finishes rather dry with a mild lingering pils malt husk note, maybe a slight background tinge of masa; moderately bitter for its ilk

F: certainly a vibrant effervescence, bubbling and rumbling the center of each sip, with a few healthy belches as proof... the body itself is on the meatier side of light

O: first time having this in perhaps 25 years, last time being likely a lukewarm can awash in a sea of melting ice in a cooler at a gathering in the woods (or one of my other many haunts)... had no recollection of this being a Miller product, but given my inclination toward their brands, I could honestly see getting this again, even, just maybe, a 30 pack (I've seen em) (1722)

Pours a translucent gold like any other aal with a white head that dissipates immediately. Smells like wet grain with a touch of just enough hops to let you know it's not a light beer. Taste is surprisingly better than most with a less apparent adjunct presence than other macros. This one shines because it doesn't lie. It's uncommonly smooth. This goes down maybe even easier than water. Overall an exceptional aal but I've only seen it once. Get it if you can.

Our dog came back. We rescued him. We thought he was gone, but we got him back. It's the beer that your dad crushed at dive bars and Boson Garden. It's the classic 90’s beer and we got it back. Red dog. Is it good? No, not particularly. Easy drinking, honestly probably one of the better Miler products. Again, not really sure what that says. But this beer was bought for the story. The brand.

Red Dog is a great budget beer. Goes down smooth and taste pretty darn good. Great poker beer!

Red Dog is the shit. 30 pack from roger Wilco in pennsauken was about $21.00. Looks great, smells amazing, tastes even better and then it feels so good. Red Dawg. Признайся!
