Bottle at Margaritaville in the Montego Bay airport: Pale golden with a fizzy white ring for head. Mild sweet pale malt aroma. Fizzy and thin. Papery flavor upfront with leads to a touch of doughy sweetness and almost no bitterness. Lacks character, I’ve had worse.

Draft on honeymoon in Jamaica: Not a fan of light beers but this one was easy to drink. Not to shabby.....for a light beer.

Only in Jamaica can you get this to my knowledge. And it should stay there. This lighter version of Red Stripe is watery and tasteless... Bud Ice anyone?

Surprisingly enjoyed this over plain Red Stripe, though it may have been that Jamaican heat. Goes down very smooth, though that doesnít mean taste isnít there. Fairly watery, but it was perfect for on the beach. Definitely surpasses Corona as a beach beer.

had this on tap many times at the resort. Honestly, I couldnít tell one bit of difference between this and the "regular strength" red stripe. clean as a whistle, very light-bodied, enjoyed it more than real rock..much more. If one drank this beer in the US in the summertime, theyíd think, big deal..is this budweiser or bud light? but it does seem to have its place on famed 7-mile beach in negril. I enjoyed this beer often.

I really think the only difference is the amount of water that is added. Drink Red Stripe, Iím not sure what the point of having Red Stripe light is.

Red Stripe is far better than Red Stripe Light. This beer is so watered down that it turns an attempted party into a stomach ache.

275 ml bottle-A light golden in color with a head that dissipates quickly. Tast of a typical light pale lager. Was not too watery. Not bad.

A good light beer. Slightly different in many aspects of most light beers. Iíve only had it while in Jamaica and havenít seen it at all locally. Would like to drink it again.
