0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
i thought this beer was good, then i got sick off of only 5 of them (no im not a light weight) its something about the taste that just utterly made me want to vomit. this is a bad beer, and if this is jamacia's best- then show me no more jamacian beers.

Is that a Red Stripe on my hand or has it given me a rash? Ok, (feeble) jokes aside. It is an average lager that lacks in most departments. It is certainly soft and lacks real balance.

No good. Yellow, lifeless. Smells skunky, tastes quite bad. I know this isn't a useful rating, but why waste the time on this one. My guess is you've tried it, and you know what it is.

This is my first beer rating. I was intrigued by the novel bottle shape and the fact that it was imported from Jamaica. The website was hilarious! It has a much better taste than the cheap american beers that I have tasted. I bought a six of Red Stripe at the super market for $6.49.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 18, 2006 Not a bad beer, not heavy at all. A sweet aftertaste is the best part of this beer. My favorite thing about this beer is the shape of the bottle. If your in a bar and this is the only foreign beer than its better than any bud, coors or corona.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I've only drank the stuff while in Jamaica so I can't tell if this is the same as the export. With that said, It's not bad if served cold and I mean really cold. This beer has some really foreign (forgive the pun) taste that can't be described. The after taste is the strongest of any beer I've ever drunk. Good for chugging but definitely not a sipper.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew pours a very large head of fine creamy bubbles and a straw yellow body. It has a very mild malt-hop aroma and starts off with a slightly fizzy bite with a weak and watery mild malt-hop rice beer flavored finish.

not bad really, a bit thin but overall crisp,much better than coors or some other nasty light beer.

If you like the taste of Karo, you will love this beer. No hopps, sweet and bland. Why bother.

A malt liquor aroma. Not bad after that. Decent head. Mild bitterness, goes down fairly smooth. Not horrific, not outstanding. In a sunny beach situation, I'd take Red Stripe over Corona any day.
