COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Red Stripe Light is D&G’s 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.

A: The pour is a straw yellow color with a fluffy white head that dies down to a thin layer of foam. S: A surprisingly malty aroma without quite as much in the way of corn or rice as most light lagers. A hint of skunk, but otherwise just fairly sweet and light with a hint of bread. T: Decent flavor, but a bit unimpressive (not shocking, though). Lightly sweet grain with a hint of corn and a light bitterness. This one is actually fairly dry. M: The body is, of course, light with a lively carbonation that pricks the tongue. D: If you’re going to drink a light lager, this might actually not be an awful way to go. By no means amazing, but there are definitely worse options.

Bottle as shown in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Pours a clear golden with a small frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a pale corn malt. Thin mouthfeel and a bit watery but very smooth and easy to drink. Good for how hot Jamaica was that day. Enjoyed several that day.

Tmoney99 (14952) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle. Poured clear pale color with a medium frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Light to moderate sweet grainy aroma. Light body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with a light to medium sweet finish of short duration. My expectations where not met.

Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear golden color with a thin fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is grass and grain with not much character beyond that. The taste is grainy with metallic notes and a bit of a sweet finish. Thin bodied. 5/19/10

"looks like your typical macro lager. thin feel, at first smell, lots of corn/adjunkty sweetness. nor pleasant, but it fades, and tasted ok, refreshing, if not spectacular. just felt like something new."

Bottle. Piss yellow pour with a white head. Aroma and taste of grainy funk. Just gross.

2.2
hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Bottle… Clear straw-colored lager with a fizzy, quickly dissipating, white head. The bouquet is all about pale grains and spicy European hops. Light to medium-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor tilts toward the sweet side of balance - clover honey. Flavor-wise, the hops are really a non-factor. Zippy, moderately sweet finish.
