1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 Subliminally, The bottle makes it taste better, and that deserves extra points in its own right. BUt besides the bottle, the beer is pretty blah, maybe a tad better than its american counterparts probably because of the jamaican water..actually i dont know what im talking about..it tastes like all other american standards..but less uriney

I thought beer-pop was a phrase used for American beers. Not enough flavor for such a high price.

Nice beer. Better enjoyed straight from the bottle. I agree it is a bit pricey but enjoyable with just about anything. If you’re going tropical, it’s a much better choice than Corona and a slightly better choice than Hatuey. Eet’s an oglay bottal bot eet’s a gude beer mon!

Orlando Beer Fest: All malt, no carbonation and no hop whatsoever. It didn’t seem this bad when I was in Jamaica. Maybe all the rum makes it taste better.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2005 Well, you know what you’re getting here. Its a tropical lager made for drinking in warm - hot, really - climates. Very quaffable and not a huge amount of flavor, but more interesting than the deservedly maligned Corona.

Nice lager with a slightly spicy kick to it. Bubbly head. This IS a decent beer - 13th percentile? I don’t think so. Good if you’re in the mood.

Clear straw color. The aroma is just awful, old paint is what came to my mind. It tastes just a tiny bit better than it smells. I paid 3$ for this beer !&/?$?"*&??"

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Canned: Medium pale gold clear over a medium size and medium lasting yellow white head. Faint skunkiness and light floral hops aroma. Medium smooth medium carbonated soft drink style palate. Very mild to bland bitter sweet dilute cordial like flavours. Dull colourless and coring just about sums it up

This is one of those "when in Rome" beers. When in a reggae bar, it just feels right to have a Red Stripe in hand. Decent flavor, gotta love the painted bottle. Better than the usual Bud/Miller product.
