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

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!

Pale golden color with a small white head. Aroma of strong corn, cardboard, and rotten fruits. Taste of much of the same, and quite foul even cold.

My brother Steve was hading these out at the last B-day party. Pours clear, light yellow. Thin white head. Aroma of grassy hops, very light. Flavor of pale malt, some cardboard box. Very watery, overly light bodied. Another lousey pale lager rating.

Pours golden with a white head that quickly disappears. Aroma is grainy cereal malt. Flavor is more wet grain and cereal.

brokensail (13245) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 15, 2010
A: The pour is a straw yellow color with a fluffy white head that dies down to a thin layer of foam. S: A surprisingly malty aroma without quite as much in the way of corn or rice as most light lagers. A hint of skunk, but otherwise just fairly sweet and light with a hint of bread. T: Decent flavor, but a bit unimpressive (not shocking, though). Lightly sweet grain with a hint of corn and a light bitterness. This one is actually fairly dry. M: The body is, of course, light with a lively carbonation that pricks the tongue. D: If youíre going to drink a light lager, this might actually not be an awful way to go. By no means amazing, but there are definitely worse options.

The aroma is weak and inoffensive with just malt and a touch of grassy hops. The appearance is very straw gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin like most of the style. There really isnít much to say about this beer.

Sameold short stub bottle. Looks good, light and clear but lots of streaming big and small bubbles, appears fun. Nice creamy head cerated by this action and it lasts. Nice hay clean civilized flavors that come across interestingly easy for this lager lover. Smooth permanent aroma which is not offending, good overall beer experience. Likable lager. Will buy again in same format.

Imagine a baby. Imagine that baby with saliva. Imagine that saliva with a measureable ABV. Now imagine a really bad beer. Voila! Youíve had this beer.
