COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed in 1938.
It is a light alcohol drink with not too strong bitterness but rather soft taste; therefore, it’s easy to drink it up.

The US market version is brewed at City Brewery’s Latrobe plant since 2012.

The best, hands down. Extra points for looking like a cheap ass beer in that weird bottle. Wish it didn't cost so much so I could drink it more often.

red stripe is my favorite lager. I wish it was available in the pint size in more locations in the U.S. It is a very sweet lager with a pale apperance. It has little to no head and the commercials are great. Boo creepy foot doctor. Hurray Beer!!!

It is NOT an Abbey Dubbel...im unsure what specific. i think it is a light ale. it is similar to a Pacifico but better. JAMAICAN REDSTRIPE is great beer.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2009 When it comes to imported or expensive beers, i.e. Guinness (beer flavored coffee), heineken (highly overrated) Corona (good only with a lime) this beer is most certainly the Nectar of the GODS. it has a slightly sweet taste remeniscient of Opium in its wonderful aftertaste. Invented by two white guys then they moved to Jamaica and brewed and sold it there, and now primarily drank by Europeans, it is still a wonder and a delight to touch this fine, deliscious, nearly perfect beer to my lips. Expensive, but worth every cent

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 I have to really go out on a limb here. I like this. It isn’t bold flavor wise but it really is a fine basic beer. It has a mild sweetness that has kind of a breaddy mouthfeel. This has become a fave

This is without a doubt one of my all time favorite Largers. Best out of the pump, and drunk cold on a hot day. Has a very clean flavour and is very pale in colour.

No strong after taste, take time to paint on the label. Goes down smooth. Not for the average beer drinker. More of an aquired taste. But a definite must at every venue from a bar to a wedding.

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