SKunky ass shit aroma. Pale yellow color. Medium palate for a a lager. Malts, honey, and some yeast in the taste. Nice lager flavor really, and easy to drink. If only the aroma was a little more pleasant...

For what this beer is designed to be - a light beer for everyday drinking - this is near perfect. With the weather warming this has the crisp hop bittering to balance a mild sweetness. Yes, this is a great beer by any measure - not something you’ll settle into at the end of the day, but perfect for the days spent working around the house or in the campground. This beer is exactly what this beer market needs.

11 oz bottles. What’s to say about this beer? Is it good? Yes. Is it great? Not even close. But, it’s easy to drink, and best of all I bought a 12 pack for $10.99 at Bevmo today. I totally admit that I dig the short little stubby bottles too. I plan on always keeping a couple of these in my fridge during the summer.

cool little 12oz REDSTRIPE bottle. golden yellow color. great bottle cap of paper on the bottom (rock, paper, scissors?) light lager malt aroma. skunky hop aroma. sharp bitterness is a good balance with the malt. A very good hanging out with the dudes beer. I wish I had a case.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a good ’every-day’ beer. Comes in 12-packs of stubby bottles, which feels good drinking out of. Not too heavy taste, and thin head, but thankfully it’s cheap, and tastes better than grocery-store beer.

light all around, hint of hops in the aroma. flavor is mild. its a beer you can drink at social events without looking like a beer snob but not having to drink total crap either. i can swig several of these down without getting too "full" or drunk either. which is what it’s meant for, i guess.
comes in cheap 12-packs, i actually prefer this bottle shape over the longneck style.

I drink this time to time, right out of the bottle because it seems right for this beer. This is probably what American lagers were like long before my time: a touch watery, full malt flavor on the tongue, a FRESH taste, oh so nice finish and evident alcohol content. Pricey micro but not dramatic in contrast to designer ales. The 11oz bottle is gimmicky but comfortable like an exact replica of a samller Red Stripe. Enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle... Clear yellow lager with a small, creamy, frothy, white head. Excellent, small, creamy retention. Spicy, peppery nose. Well-balanced, moderately sweet, moderately bitter flavor with biscuit and pilsener malt. Light to medium-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and reserved carbonation. Short, crisp, mostly clean finish. Ends up a bit thin and watery.
