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.

madsberg (10598) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2002
Bright golden colour. Hoppy aroma. The flavour is somewhat hoppy and sweet. No bitterness at all. For a lager its pretty avarage but not bad.

When I was a teenager in Miami in the 1980’s, a bunch of Jamaican drug dealers (and killers, as it turned out) lived all around me, and they all drank Red Stripe. I find it sort of harsh tasting, myself.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2002
Well, I guess I have to agree with most everyone else, a lower to medium range Lager. Nothing worth mentioning that hasn’t already been said here. It did gain 1 bonus point for getting the taste of ’Caiman’ out of my mouth. BTW, this IS the 100,000th rating, right? What do I win?

FastEddie (230) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 27, 2002
Sweet, a bit of hops, yet toasty. Not overly flavorful and not the easiest thing to drink. Fairly average or even below.

Some hops aroma. Sweetish, adjuncty aroma like most macros. Almost no head. Pale amber - like dark urine. Reminded me in taste of Strohs. Good amount of hops but some off flavors with unpleasant mild bitter after. Maybe I’ll drink it again if I’m in Jamaica.
