Tasted from bottle. Pours a pale clear yellow with white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy/breads. A little caramel. Taste is essentially zero bitterness and moderate sweetness. Taste is mild and mostly for drinking on hot days. Some grainy and medicinal flavor with a little caramel. Better than some macros but not by much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Itís a decent beer. You should probably save this one for when you go to Jamaica, itís probably cheaper there. Not worth the money for what I paid for it in the US. No aroma, looks good, the taste is above average, overall itís an average beer.

Red Stripe. Itís beer, Mon. Always reminds me of vacation and Jamaica, and relaxation. While nothing special taste or texture wise, it is a crisp light lager/pilsner that Never disappoints.

From a can. An odd one for me this one. It has a strange, cheapish cider taste to it. That would put me off buying it again. On the plus side, itís not too watery and I can see how it could be refreshing on a warm day. Overall, very standard other than the strange taste.
