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.

11.2 oz bottle...whatever that means. Pours a pale yellow/gold color. Hardly an aroma. No hop flavor whatsoever. Goes down like water...I could drink 24 of these and still drive home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Diddnt even know thexisted, so i had to try it, gold pour, super thin white head.. Funky aroma, taste is just a plain light crisp lager, would be a good summer light, binge drinking beer, (if it wasnt so expensive anyway).. Ok for a light beer, wont do again,m unless its cheap

Kingston Hall, NY bottle FREE: I had the option of not paying for this beer, which I had not yet rated, so I felt as though I might as well do it. It was pretty much what was expected. Pale beer. Corn and grain aroma. Less sweet than normal red stripe, because there is less beer in this than there is in normal red stripe. It was drinkable though, which is why I chugged this as quickly as I could before leaving Kingston Hall, chea.

Aroma has dominant sweet corn, light hay and light grass. Appearance is light gold with sticky white head. Flavor has some toast, but its like veggie toast if such a thing exists; the finish is quite dry, but unpleasantly grassy. Palate is light, thin and fizzy. One of the worst pale lagers Ive had in some time; thankfully it was a freebie.

This tastes like melted candy canes. Not a good beer, not worth importing.

Almost a finger of head. Clear, (yellow?) almost colorless body. Strong metallic smell. Not appealing. Metallic taste too. Really watery. A metallic bitter at the end. Not enjoyable. Low carbonation. Light body, but not crisp. Does anyone really drink this for real?

It is what it is if you are looking for a beer that will quench your thirst on a hot day it will. If you want some great beer why did you buy a light lager. Every thing has a place so know its place right next to every other light lager.

Love Red Stripe, I even enjoyed the light version. Short stubby bottle, pale, golden, clear, minimal head, light sweetness, light body, if price is that of a domestic macro, great grass cutting beer

Clear light yellow color. Aroma of dirty corn and grain. Nothing past that. Taste is weak grain. Flavor of meh and lightness.

Tap in Jamaica. Poured a pale yellow with a big white head. Smell is corn, grain, and really nothing else. Taste is much the same, sweet corn, grain, and cereal, with a bitter finish. Light body and high carbonatIon. Light refreshing, sweet, and plain. Pretty weak beer, but nice during the hot days here in Jamaica.
