1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Well, I think it's ok to brew this beer, but why import it to Denmark? I don't get it. The water-tap is almost as good as this beer.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Below average pilsener. Skunky aroma, straw. Watery taste, hoppy taste. Dry and slightly bitter palate.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
dirty unfinished malty smell. Clear golden colour. Pours out quite okay. Head is gone relative fast. taste, hmm. not much taste there. Bit hops perhaps, some dirty malts. Palate is water. Poor Jamaicans, I would start a bobslee team too if I had to drink this everyday.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I didn't like this beer at all and I really wanted to.
I will re-rate this one but it seemed like a lot to pay for Miller lite with hops added.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a pale yellow with small white head, typical of this style. Aroma is slight malt with skunky floral hops. Flavor is smooth and mild, nothing outrageous, very suiting to the brown bottle, heinikan should learn a lesson on this one. Refreshing finish with a slightly dry and bitter moutfeel. Not bad.

This is a great beer to drink when you are on an island or at the beach. Way better than corona. I had this stuff in jamaica and it was great.

i like the retro looking bottle. i tried it only once and though i was fairly drunk i thought it was okay. at that point anything could have been okay though, right? damn kids.

I'm just about to head out to dance hall night at the Pub I.G. there they have 2$ Red Stripes on speaciall. I'm going to drink as many as I can. Nothing extraordinary about this beer but a good tasting beer if you in the mood to just get wasted. I like it.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is really quite decent. Better than I expected. I just had to try it and was glad I did. Not that it's the greates beer, but pretty good. I wasn't impressed with the pour, which was a light golden color, but the stark white head evaporated almost immediately with no lacing at all. Flavor was just different, but in a good way with a hint of sweetness. Deserves a better rating than it has gotten in the past.

Really decent beer. Can't believe it is made in Jamaica but it is really good. Everyone should try one, not to sweet but just right.
