Bubbles! Pale color (not as yellow as the Budweiser sitting next to it). This was fine with a curry (where carbonation is an advantage) but in the end, there’s nothing to this--flavorless, boring beer.

I’ve got no idea why so many people consider this a good beer. Sweet aroma and malty-sweet flavor. Beyond that, however, there’s not much there.

Very corny. A good bit sweet, but not really overly so. Not much in the color, but not hard to drink. Lots of corn.

We went to Comerica last night and parked at a bar with an empty lot - 10 bucks to park but they give you a ticket for a free brew after the game. The game itself was great - Tigers won on a homer in the tenth, and the Labbat there went down all right, but it made me more curious about the post-game freebie. Typical, beutifully hole-in-the-wall kind of set up, and the best beer available this one. Actually I remember there being more to Red Stripe before Diageo (Guinness) took over - now it’s remarkably cleansed of flavour. Still, it worked for a late night in Detroit, shooting pool.

It’s thin, It’s a bit too fruity for my taste. Tasted a bit like wine or cider in an otherwise flavorless beer. Not bad for what it is.

nothing special really, no special characteristics and is easy to drink it up for rookies. I’d buy em if I felt like strictly slamming beer.

The bottle is more fun than the beer, but the beers not bad.

I like the bottle shape, kind of like some old brands of root beer, so I give it an appearance point for that. Otherwise...pours extremely clear and thin, with a big but very fast-dying head; aroma is very sweet-malty, but also somewhat stale. Flavor also has a fair amount of malt, but again a certain staleness and something of a cardboard/wet paper character creeps in. Finishes a might bitter, thin, stale. A little better than, say, Michelob, but at the price you pay in USA totally skippable.
