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.

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.

If youíve just done a few Bob Marley shots at the pool bar and are floating around the pool or ocean, these go down just fine.

Itís smooth, almost no hop quality to it, and very thin. Light in all senses of the word. Thereís not a bad taste to it, but not much taste at all. I guess I just wonder why.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tasted from a 12 oz. bottle purchased in Fort Collins, Colorado. Pours a light, clear-yellow body with little head. Skunky head and light skunky body. On top of that, itís only 3.6% ABV!

Got a few bottles as a gift from my dad so Iíll try it (Iíll try any beer once to give it a fair shake). Clear very pale yellow color with no head. Smells like sour grain and rotten fruit. Now, how to describe the taste... Iíve never actually licked a hoboís anus (nor do I plan to) but I suspect it would taste something like this; dirty, stale, oily, you get the point. Iím just going to skip the finish and the palate for this one okay?

Personally, I do not see a need in my beer life for a Red Stripe Light. I accepted one off a friend for the sole purpose of gaining a rating (and never drinking it again). water with essence of beer, and the bottles are smaller than regular Red Stripe. Loss of a few ounce is quite frankly a rip-off. Ba-OO! Light Beer! Ba-OO!
