Bottle as pictured. I had a good laugh at the "double fermented" on the label, kinda reminds me of Bud’s "Beechwood aged". Regardless, it was a better take on the classic Red Stripe, a little heavier on the malt, just a heavier feel overall.

Pite w barze podczas rejsu. Kolor burszynowy, piana biała szybko znika. Aromat lekki karmel i zboże. Smak karmelu i goryczki, nagazowanie średnie.Jak na Karaiby solidne piwo.

275 ml bottle at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Ocho Rios, on January 24, 2015.
Clear pale golden color, white head. Sweet, caramel, a bit hoppy scent. Malty, sweet, caramel, bready taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
At least right after having a Red Stripe Light and a regular Red Stripe this one worked rather well!

Had this again on March 9, 2015. From a bottle I purchased from a store in Ocho Rois end of January.
Comes through more of alcohol and event more sweet, less bitter, than it did when having it in the sun straight after a regular Red Stripe. Has definite more character than its paler brother though.

Your average crappy lager. Watered down and not much flavor on this one. I would rather have something else.

12 oz bottle - @ MBJ airport. Pours gold orange with full white head. Lots of barley and sour fruit on the nose. Aromas of soapy fruit and malted hops. Taste is like a bigger-bodied Red Stripe, very refreshing with decent bite in the finish. Yea mon.

Bottle drunk in a bar near to Cruise ship terminal in Antigua. Amber colour, decent white head.Aroma of caramel and grain, and quite drinkable. A cut above most of the pale lagers on offer.

On a hot day I very much like red strip from time to time and the bottle are cool but the bold is not that beer. Had in a bottle s can’t tell you much about head or color but the taste I can and it was pretty bad soapy and like cold meds always wanted to try but now hope I didn’t ever again.

Bottle. Had this one at a little stop on our way to the resort. Medium gold color. Light head. Better than regular Red Strip. Though not all that great. Watery, flavor with some notes of grain. Aroma is slight grains, hay, very weak.

275mL bottle purchased at Progressive Foods in Montego Bay. The aroma is sweet with some corny DMS and some fusel alcohols present. There is a light sweetness and spiciness with anise that has some of the Jamaican Guinness character. It actually might be the fusel that I think I am detecting, actually. Transparent copper body with a small, quickly dissipating off-white head. Scant lacing. The flavor starts sweet and um....sweet? Becomes sweet, and um...sweet? Caramel? There’s really nothing else happening here. The most bland, flavorless 6% beer I have ever had. I suppose it could be worse. Not sure what is bold about this beer, though.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear amber with about a half finger of white head. Aroma of caramel, oatmeal and very mild hops. Taste is lightly sweet. Grains, oatmeal, caramel and hops. Medium bodied with a somewhat creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not too bad. Much better than regular Red Stripe and probably one of the best "malt liquors" I’ve had yet. I would gladly drink this one again.
