Appearance – The beer was yellow with almost no carbonation.

Smell – The beer smelled of old dry grass.

Taste – Like a restarant that throws fruit or vegetables into water to give it a hint of taste, this taste like water with a bit of hay.

Mouthfeel – So there is almost no carbonation, and it feels like water.

Overall – I remember drinking this with Jalepano Krunchers regularly in the mid-90’s. Thank God those days are gone.

Poured from a 24 oz. can, it pours your typical pale yellow color, and has very little head. It is not very good, it is watery and bland tasting. Nothing special here.

Who comes up with these names? I've never once seen a red dog.

But then I've never seen a Leprechaun wearing a green hat either. Or the St. Pauli girl in person. Ah, imagery. I suppose the Big Bad Dog is to conger up thoughts of manly drinking but real men don't drink labels, real men drink what they like. This stuff is lightly colored, lightly flavored (what flavor there is) and is beer by definition only. I don't know where we came across it but didn't remember drinking it until seeing it listed here.

I don't know anyone I dislike enough to force this on them. Now I remember why I couldn't remember it.

While it does have great clarity, this beer also has that because of the lack of ingredients in it, its easy to have lots of clarity when you don't have lots of hops or malt in the beer. Here we are. Yellow, white head, 1/2". The aroma was offputting, some barley, but also lots of metallic hydraulic fluid remnants.

Bitter noble hops? Or high alpha acid long boil? Too much bitter for no hop flavor. Pairs well with bars that smell already.

Not impressed.
