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.

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.

RobertDale (4547) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Sample at KC Beerfest 10-22. Comes pale yellow with an average white head. Faint aroma of grain and malt. Taste is watered down grain and malt. Not much here at all.

Not too shabby but I happen to like Red Stripe. Clean dry malts, not much in the way of hops, just a touch of balance at the finish. A good pale lager here. Pale golden yellow.

seymour (1749) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Drank directly from bottle. Standard light lager characteristics. Virtually no hops aroma. Essentially a thinner, watered-down version of regular Red Stripe. Bland, but still has an alright dry finish. Fine on the beach if it’s really cold. Better than Bud Light and the like, and definitely a cooler-looking bottle.

Bottle: Long time ago it was safer to drink beer than water, this is what is must have tasted like! I would choose this over water under the sun in Jamaica. Food Pairing: Anything and everything (like water).

translucent straw with no head; sticky light body with high carbonation.

aroma: pale malt sweetness, oily corn, funky high gravity esters.

taste: funky fruit flavors, oily adjunct sweetness, hints of pale malt and leafy hop bitterness.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - SEP 5, 2011
1/30/11. vibrant sunshine yellow color. it smells a lot like bad sake... rice, florals and honeydew along with cardboard, grain husk and canvas. the flavor is the same and rather harsh. the mouth feel is crisp but it has a starchy texture. 5/2/4/2/9

Bottle. Piss yellow pour with a white head. Aroma and taste of grainy funk. Just gross.

scooterbub (930) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - AUG 20, 2011
11.2 ounce stubby bottle. Pours a light golden yellow with a thin quarter inch white head that lasts. Lots of carbonation. Taste is of some malt, corn and grain. Has a similar light clean aroma. The body is slightly thin and on the watery side. Refreshing and easy to drink. Not a bad summer beer, but I prefer the normal Red Stripe better.
