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.

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).

HIGHB4LL (713) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2014
11.2 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Williston. Appearance: finger white head, pale straw, clear, head does not last, no real lacing. Aroma: cereal, light grassy hops, light caramel. Palate: light body, average carbonation, thin texture. Taste: sweet malt, into light bitter hops. Overall, refreshing, but nothing special.

"looks like your typical macro lager. thin feel, at first smell, lots of corn/adjunkty sweetness. nor pleasant, but it fades, and tasted ok, refreshing, if not spectacular. just felt like something new."

N3lson1 (284) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Drank out of a pint glass from a 11.2 oz bottle.Smells like Red Stripe. Nice golden color with a lot of carbonation, with a frothy head that consistantly stays. Tastes like nothing... Decent beach day beer.

DruncanVeasey (7318) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
330ml from a supermarket in Rockley preloading in room 2a for another night of Bajan merriment. Pale and fizzing with lively carbonation and a loose white tuft. Saline sour grain and rice nose like Bud or equivalent. OK weakly lemony flavour with rice softness, rubber and phosphorous taints. Deeper biscuit hints. Empty finish. Redundant pisswatter after 2 buckets of Banks on Carlisle Bay, more Banks, 2 rum and cokes and a cup of tea.

mzaar (1790) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2014
Flaska. Ljust guldfärgad med vitt skum som snart lägger sig. Gräs och jordighet i doften. Smakinslag? Ja, nu börjar problemen, för här var det inte mycket att hänga i granen. Det är vattnigt och tunt och där finns en svag gräsbeska som ändå får mig att förstå att det är en öl jag dricker. Meningslös.

rumproasts (3452) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2014
bottle. Pale straw with small head. Indistinguishable from mexican light beers, except this one is from Jamaica. Watery and bland, but not unpleasant.

hotstuff (4303) - Indiana, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Rated on 2-18-2011. This bottled beer pours a small very fizzy white head with a very short retention, transparent yellow body, fizzy carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt and grain. The taste is lightly sweet, malty and grain. The mouth feel is moderate carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is not good. Plain and simple.

Malaclemys (418) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours brilliant clear yellow with thin white head. Aroma of DMS, corn, slight floral and earthy hops. Taste is very light with corn, sweet malt, and a dry finish. Very light body.

ben4321 (4253) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Location: Way too many of these in Jamaica, Dec ’13

Aroma: The nose is adjunct lager corn, some light malts, and not a whole lot else
Appearance: It pours a clear yellow color with a small, fizzy, white head
Flavor: The taste is as minimal as you’d expect, with some corn and light sweetness
Palate: The body is light and fairly watery, way too fizzy, not too much else going on
Overall Impression: It’s not the worst light adjunct lager out there, but it certainly isn’t leaps and bounds better either. I don’t remember the carbonation being so extreme on bottled tastings, but the draft was a total over-carbonated mess.

BOSSbrewer (2068) - Arkansas, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Pours crystal clear golden yellow. Liffey white head. Smell of corn and soap. Slightly metallic flavor. Slightly sweet. Not bad for a lite beer.
