About what I expected. Sometimes this beer is cloudy, sometimes it is clear. I don’t get it.

My memory of this beer is a cloudy one. No too bad if I do remember correctly. Quite cheap in Greece!

A lager with an unusual taste. Very refreshing - hits the spot. Great for snakebite with Strongbow.

Decent balanced thirst quencher but not worth paying premium price for.

$8 for a six-pack? You gotta be high to pay that much for such a nothing beer.

While in Jamaica do as the Jamaicans do. Thats right drink budweiser so you don’t get the runs. Everything told me it was pretty good until after I left the bar; smells okay, tastes okay, looks okay. Even then, it took a second try to convince me this is not healthy to drink. Don’t drink it in America, ’Brad’ it’s ’Chad’ pic up the cordless.’What are you doing?’ ’I’m drinking a red stripe and shitting in my polo khaki’s.’

Luckily I had this cold, as the consensus seems to be you have to. Definitely tastes better than it smells, because it was way too skunky smelling for my tastes. Rather smooth but unremarkable in every way. Definitely more for the novelty than anything else.

Thanks to ’Blatz King’ for inspiring me to rate this beer today. This beer is not that great...here in Michigan. Put me on a Carnival Cruise and somehow, it transforms into the best beer in the friggin’ world!! I’ll always have fond memories of Red Stripe. Keith Richards jamming to ’Happy’ with a Red Stripe shirt on is one of them, the cruises are the others.
