From the 11.2 fl. oz. stubby bottle. It pours a well carbonated pale yellow with a burst of about an inch of fizzy white head that settles to a ring. Grass, malts, adjuncts merge in the aroma with a thinkly hopped background. The body is thin but typical for a light beer. The taste also combines grass and malts but it has less of a macro quality than other nationally known beers. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Hand grenade-shaped 11.2 oz bottle. Poured bright golden with a short, sticky cap of white head and rising bubbles. The aroma picked up not a whole lot.. some grass and straw notes over pale malts was about it.. smelled like it was going to be airy and refreshing. The flavor found pale malts and a little flaked corn at the core.. light grassy bitterness and lemon again on the edges.. very weak overall, but well-balanced for what it was. Light-bodied on the palate.. higher carbonation kept it from feeling watery (well.. actually it didn’t feel unlike sparkling water).. overall crisp and refreshing. fidelis83 (2441) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Pale yellow pour with a tall, fluffy white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is cereal, sweet grass, a bit of toast, fermenting corn and cooked rice. Flavor is sweet cereal, grass, mineral and creamed corn. Palate is light bodied and fairly neutral throughout with a very light carbonation, must have wasted it all creating that huge head. It’s not like I poured it very violently either, weird. Lame pale lager as expected. taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Clear, yellow, and a good head. Aroma and taste is like the many industrial lagers before it, but it’s not skunked! morrdt (715) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2010
12 oz. single stubby brown bottle from a friend’s fridge here in the Dirty Mo. Light yellow coloring, aroma is very light. Taste is actually a bit nice, as compared to the harshness that his the regular Red Stripe. Nothing weird on the aftertaste either. Decent.

If you’ve just done a few Bob Marley shots at the pool bar and are floating around the pool or ocean, these go down just fine. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - OCT 24, 2010
It’s smooth, almost no hop quality to it, and very thin. Light in all senses of the word. There’s not a bad taste to it, but not much taste at all. I guess I just wonder why. cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Tasted from a 12 oz. bottle purchased in Fort Collins, Colorado. Pours a light, clear-yellow body with little head. Skunky head and light skunky body. On top of that, it’s only 3.6% ABV! twindadplus2 (715) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Got a few bottles as a gift from my dad so I’ll try it (I’ll try any beer once to give it a fair shake). Clear very pale yellow color with no head. Smells like sour grain and rotten fruit. Now, how to describe the taste... I’ve never actually licked a hobo’s anus (nor do I plan to) but I suspect it would taste something like this; dirty, stale, oily, you get the point. I’m just going to skip the finish and the palate for this one okay? JFGrind (2047) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Personally, I do not see a need in my beer life for a Red Stripe Light. I accepted one off a friend for the sole purpose of gaining a rating (and never drinking it again). water with essence of beer, and the bottles are smaller than regular Red Stripe. Loss of a few ounce is quite frankly a rip-off. Ba-OO! Light Beer! Ba-OO!
