Red Stripe Light is D&G’s alternative to the original. It has a smoother taste, and besides having a lower alcohol content, it is also ’less’ of a beer as it comes in 10.5 oz. bottles.

Tap in Jamaica. Poured a pale yellow with a big white head. Smell is corn, grain, and really nothing else. Taste is much the same, sweet corn, grain, and cereal, with a bitter finish. Light body and high carbonatIon. Light refreshing, sweet, and plain. Pretty weak beer, but nice during the hot days here in Jamaica.

11.2 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. That is all I will say about this water. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good light beer, maybe a little Spendy being so similar to a miller or bud. And only 11.2 oz

Light straw color; Light slightly body; Aroma and flavor of slight sweet malt, grain, and some cereal; Fairly bland; Overall, nothing offensive - just not much here.

Pale yellow. Extremely light hints of malt in an otherwise thin and watery flavor. Barely beer.

This is a typical, yellow macro beer. There would be no reason to drink this instead of any other light beer. Now, when you are in a pool bar at your resort in Jamaica, it would be rude to drink a Miller Lite, so the Red Strip Light is the perfect beer. This beer is the reason for regional beers. We should not be able to get everything everywhere. Enjoy this beer on the island, but drink your own silly light beer whereever you happen to be at that time...

Looked like a beer I havent rated so picked up a sixer. Aroma smells like normal bmc. Gold body with whie head. Flavor has some corn and barley to to but not much more. Not a very refreshing brew.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a pale clear yellow with minimal head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste is about the same. I actually wasn’t paying attention when picking up a 6pk of Red Stripe for my lady and got this instead. She thought I was trying to tell her something and got mad...go figure. Overall, it’s like most other crappy light beers. Nothing to write home about.

Red Stripe Light has a very thin, white head and a clear, golden appearance with streaming bubbles and almost no lacing. The aroma is of sweet barley, paper, and a slight spiciness. Taste is of sweet biscuit, paper, a touch of hops, and water. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Red Stripe Light finishes crisp, refreshing, and dry. Overall, this is a better-than-average light beer. RJT

Corn nose. Crystal clear yellow, thin head. Weak lemony tang. Nothing objectionable, nothing much of anything at all. Unremarkable.
