Red Stripe Light is D&Gs alternative to the original. It has a smoother taste, and besides having a lower alcohol content, it is also less of a beer as it comes in 10.5 oz. bottles.

Drank out of a pint glass from a 11.2 oz bottle.Smells like Red Stripe. Nice golden color with a lot of carbonation, with a frothy head that consistantly stays. Tastes like nothing... Decent beach day beer.

DruncanVeasey (8056) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
330ml from a supermarket in Rockley preloading in room 2a for another night of Bajan merriment. Pale and fizzing with lively carbonation and a loose white tuft. Saline sour grain and rice nose like Bud or equivalent. OK weakly lemony flavour with rice softness, rubber and phosphorous taints. Deeper biscuit hints. Empty finish. Redundant pisswatter after 2 buckets of Banks on Carlisle Bay, more Banks, 2 rum and cokes and a cup of tea.

Flaska. Ljust guldfrgad med vitt skum som snart lgger sig. Grs och jordighet i doften. Smakinslag? Ja, nu brjar problemen, fr hr var det inte mycket att hnga i granen. Det r vattnigt och tunt och dr finns en svag grsbeska som nd fr mig att frst att det r en l jag dricker. Meningsls.

bottle. Pale straw with small head. Indistinguishable from mexican light beers, except this one is from Jamaica. Watery and bland, but not unpleasant.

hotstuff (4900) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Rated on 2-18-2011. This bottled beer pours a small very fizzy white head with a very short retention, transparent yellow body, fizzy carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt and grain. The taste is lightly sweet, malty and grain. The mouth feel is moderate carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is not good. Plain and simple.

Malaclemys (464) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours brilliant clear yellow with thin white head. Aroma of DMS, corn, slight floral and earthy hops. Taste is very light with corn, sweet malt, and a dry finish. Very light body.

ben4321 (5883) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Location: Way too many of these in Jamaica, Dec 13

Aroma: The nose is adjunct lager corn, some light malts, and not a whole lot else
Appearance: It pours a clear yellow color with a small, fizzy, white head
Flavor: The taste is as minimal as youd expect, with some corn and light sweetness
Palate: The body is light and fairly watery, way too fizzy, not too much else going on
Overall Impression: Its not the worst light adjunct lager out there, but it certainly isnt leaps and bounds better either. I dont remember the carbonation being so extreme on bottled tastings, but the draft was a total over-carbonated mess.

Pours crystal clear golden yellow. Liffey white head. Smell of corn and soap. Slightly metallic flavor. Slightly sweet. Not bad for a lite beer.

kramer (5950) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear light yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded pretty quickly. The nose is pretty bad, lots of corn and a bit of wet cardboard. The flavor is just as bad as the aroma suggests, awful corn syrup and soggy wet grain all over the place. If Im drinking a Pale Lager, I at least want it to be clean and crisp. Even if it lacks flavor, thats OK, but these flavors are just offensive. Light bodied and watery, yet still sticky and clingy from the heavy corn presence. Cant even imagine liking this on a super hot day lounging on a Jamaican beach.

On vacation in Jamaica. Pours a piss yellow color with a decent white head that dissipates to a slight film around the edge of the glass. Smell is bread, malt, and yeast. Taste follows, with a bit undesirable funk. Light version is a bit more easy drinking. Still wish I could get a decent beer on vacation...
