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.

Very light and almost flavorless. Crisp except for the somewhat tart aftertaste. Highly disappointing.

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.

Slight honey aroma. Light clear golden colour with excellent head. Very light honey flavor with excellent finish. Light body with low to medium carbonation.

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

Bottle. I didn't mind this one, accepting what it is - a simple, clean beer that doesn't get bogged down in nasty dryness like so many low grade lagers. Good in multiples on a hot day watching cricket and jerking!

Der erste Schluck kommt sehr herb rüber, dann jedoch merkt man nur noch einen leichten Hopfengeschmack und einen malzigen Abgang! Fazit: Ganz gutes Bier, schmeckt, aber ist auch nichts wirklich besonderes! Die Flaschenform sieht schon interessant aus, wie Hustensaft, aber gefällt mir dennoch gut! Das Etikett ist nicht so der Bringer!

Clear orange beer with a big white head. Typical lager aroma. A very thin body. Sweetness from malts but no bitterness. A hint of honey. Medium crispy carbonation. Boring as hell.
