This was marketed as a premium beer, like a Red Wolf/Dog 2.0 of sorts. Pours like a color and consistency of Killian's that thin bodied but amber/red in color appearance with a big at first but settling into a 1/5" off white head. Aroma of that Killians's lager vibe.

On the one hand, it doesn't get bogged down in that heavy earthy red malt feel and aftertaste, but on the other, its like it had food coloring added to it, partially due to the seemingly excessive carbonation that accompanied the beer. Weird they basically took the same branding for this beer and crossed it over to bud light platinum. I dunno were they trying to go for some of the Yuengling/Killian's market share or what, but I don't think it worked out for them.

I tried it. Not bad. If I want a red lager, I like Yeungling better, but it is a fair contendr. Where the hell to find it here and now, I don't know.

Not much to explain pretty basic flavorless light beer.

To me initially, this felt, smelled, tasted, and almost looked like regular old Budweiser. The flavor and overall body to this beer was as if the company took their flagship red labeled, watery goodness that people so love and added a bit of a darker flavor, though I must say it is a very good and enjoyable flavor, despite the lack of quality the beer seems to have, I'd be lying if I said it was bad. I don't know what Anheuser did, but they pulled off a slightly watery, quality taste that was actually...well....enjoyable, would definitely get this beer again, and too boot a good ABV.
