1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Appearance: very clear with faint straw and hay colors. White head vanishes almost immediately; fizzy. Swirls with nothing.
Nose: wonderbread crust. Waxy lemon peel. Dry grain husks and white rice.
Palate: grainy and bready in the middle; white wonderbread with a touch of sweetness. Cold corn kernels. Watery finish. Hard lemon in the back top of wallow.
Final Thoughts: not that the regular Red Stripe is all that great, but the light was light alright. I donít stop at Go and head straight to Jail.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
bottle - Pours pale, clear yellow-gold with a small white, fizzy head. Thereís a mild grainy malt aroma and well, a mild grainy malt taste. Itís light bodied and on the watery side. This beer just isnít good at all. Itís kind of gross actually.

I am glad this was "free" because even at that price it was hardly worth the effort. I managed to take a few sips before dumping the rest down the nearest sink. I know one doesnít go to Jamaica for the beer but this is the most boring bland thing I had in a long time. Only the warmth and beach atmosphere make it the least bit compelling.
Aroma / Appearance - The crisp white head and lazy lime colored body were your standard fizzy lager. Second runnings of grain, lime juice, and stale hops create a boring texture which is soon easily forgotten.
Flavor / Palate - Grainy with a faint malt presence this has enough taste to not be completely plain. It is so weak though that one sip of water blew away any finish. This might as well have been the liquid at the bottom of the drain at a beer bar for everything positive in it. Give it a miss unless for some reason you like macro produced swill.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
11.2 oz bottle...whatever that means. Pours a pale yellow/gold color. Hardly an aroma. No hop flavor whatsoever. Goes down like water...I could drink 24 of these and still drive home.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From the 11.2 fl. oz. stubby bottle. It pours a well carbonated pale yellow with a burst of about an inch of fizzy white head that settles to a ring. Grass, malts, adjuncts merge in the aroma with a thinkly hopped background. The body is thin but typical for a light beer. The taste also combines grass and malts but it has less of a macro quality than other nationally known beers.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hand grenade-shaped 11.2 oz bottle. Poured bright golden with a short, sticky cap of white head and rising bubbles. The aroma picked up not a whole lot.. some grass and straw notes over pale malts was about it.. smelled like it was going to be airy and refreshing. The flavor found pale malts and a little flaked corn at the core.. light grassy bitterness and lemon again on the edges.. very weak overall, but well-balanced for what it was. Light-bodied on the palate.. higher carbonation kept it from feeling watery (well.. actually it didnít feel unlike sparkling water).. overall crisp and refreshing.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale yellow pour with a tall, fluffy white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is cereal, sweet grass, a bit of toast, fermenting corn and cooked rice. Flavor is sweet cereal, grass, mineral and creamed corn. Palate is light bodied and fairly neutral throughout with a very light carbonation, must have wasted it all creating that huge head. Itís not like I poured it very violently either, weird. Lame pale lager as expected.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear, yellow, and a good head. Aroma and taste is like the many industrial lagers before it, but itís not skunked!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. single stubby brown bottle from a friendís fridge here in the Dirty Mo. Light yellow coloring, aroma is very light. Taste is actually a bit nice, as compared to the harshness that his the regular Red Stripe. Nothing weird on the aftertaste either. Decent.
