Every second bottle of this one tasted of water only! Also, the 1/6 of the bottle was missing! Might be a bad deliverance... No actual taste of nothing.

Very ugly bottle and very sweet and cloying. Sometimes it tastes of too old, bad water.

Flat beer but at least it has a decent head. Weak flavour and no aroma, uninspiring.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2003 Water. cooked to death. Not much character. I like Bob Marley, but not Red Stripe.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 13, 2002
Pure urinary yellow, the light kind you get during the day not the dehydrated, darker, morning version. Foamy, quickly dissipating white head. Big bubbled carbonation. Bland aroma of rice, corn and lemon peels. Crisp and rough around the edges. Rice taste mixed with lemony notes and hard water minerals. Light bodied. Goes down quick thankfully. Artificially sweet, although light in nature. Tastes so manufactured and not very beer like at all. Finishes with more lemony bitterness and a sticky aftertaste. Good alternative to water....sea water.

Not a bad beer drinkable on a nice hot day.

Light yellow appearance. Standard stuff really. High carbination and a presence of hops. Nothing really offensive about this one.
