Sweet taste and aroma. Nothing special but a nice average beer. Is very light and not sweet enough to be a true lager. Ok, but not worthy of cost.

I think Red Stripe is an OK beer. You can't drink too many or they really start to taste odd, but a few are OK. Did they steal this bottle from my Dad's old Schmidt's collection? Sort of sweet, with pretty nice body for a lager. I'll drink it again someday.

Overpriced, truly average in every way. The commercials for it are great. If you are going to buy Jamaican spirits, go for rum and leave the beer alone.

Now, this is a nice little lager. Besides the fact that is comes in a cool little bottle, it also tastes great. By great I mean great for the only beer that those Jamacan's export. It's got a nice smooth flavor and if you listen to Bob while you drink it you might just get a little different kind of feeling.

Creamy phenols and alcoholic mash...Not that I was expecting much better, but the next time I'll use fresh water as a palate cleanser...

Brewed in Engeland, says the label. Not that it matters. Cornaroma. Sweet and bland, corny lager. No hops, cardboard flavor. Thin, cork flavor, if possible. This beer really sucks!

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden yellow colour with a small but lasting head. Straight forward lager with nothing offensive. Yeasty soapy aroma with some malt flavours.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This brew had a decent beery aroma, a minimal head and very little carbonation. Light bodied with a mild malty sweetness, almost fruity, and surprisingly it left some lacing on the side as I drank it. Passable but in no way worth it's inflated price, although the bottle has a nice grip to it and would make a dandy little Molotov cocktail.

Bottle. BLAH! Smoky and spicy, but not in a subtle way. Metallic and skunky. The only cool thing is drinking out of a stubbie like the McKenzie bros.
