Bottle. Pale clear yellow pour with a thin white head. Slightly sweet aroma and a very mild taste. Very easy drinking but only because its fairly close to water

Bottle.Straw color with a minimal head. Aroma mainly of sweetness and grain. Taste of malt sweetness. Seems a bit light but it does go down good on a hot day

Very smooth lager with good flavor, Drank from bottle so I can not respond on the head or on the pour.

zapach słaby, lekko słodowy i z niewielkimi nutami siana. kolor złoty, przejrzysty. piana mała, ale dość trwała. w smaku woda, lekko kwaśna. do wypicia tylko jak jest mocno schłodzone.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2014 Very light and almost flavorless. Seriously unclean and with an unpleasant tart aftertaste. Turns really bad if allowed to warm up.

Got killer cotton mouth and don’t want a big time buzz drinking several in a row then "Hurray Red stripe" as the commercial goes is a good choice. Soft, honey flavored lager that just says easy beer easy drinking with no overkill however nothing that remember able as well. Nice with BBQ fish Jamaican style, Jamaican shrimp dishes ,jerk chicken and similar food as red stripe does not impair the big food flavors just cleans the palate nicely and cools the heat of the spicier dishes as well. Weird pricing though. Some stores want upwards of $9.00 a six pack while others only ask $9.99 a 12 pack. Some smaller towns had the cheaper price over a big city which is odd? Watch dates carefully as it can turn bitter. Middle of the road Pale lager served cold very doable on a hot summer day.

Flaska från SB. Dricks under pannkakssteket med passande Alpha Blondy i högtalarna! Klar gyllengul vätska med ett ganska tjockt vitt skum, försvinner fort dock. Doftar lätt av jäst, malt och något kryddigt. Lätt i smaken, men schyssta malttoner. Ganska skön strävhet i eftersmaken. Bra sommarbira bombaclot! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
