It is a lager at all. Colour, foam and smell. Light taste, lightly bitter at the end of the sip and a nice aftertaste of malt. A nice beer for its style and with a great drinkability. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells like a lager, pours like a lager, head dissipates quite quickly in a glass but honestly you're most likely drinking this out of the bottle if you're in the Caribbean...which is the ONLY place I recommend drinking Red Stripe. If you're in North America it tastes nothing like the Jamaican product and that's likely because it's sweetened with HFCS here. On a hot day at the beach in Jamaica or Grand Cayman, a Red Stripe straight out of the bottle goes down like magic.

Sanctuary is a rock bar in Basingstoke. Closing next month. No cellar so all beer is cans and Red Stripe best on offer. Sweet saccharine floral aroma. Pale gold. No head. Sweet. Chemically so but could be more offensive. Thin. Light. Fizzy. Abrupt. Had worse.

Bottle at a Jamaican restaurant in Edinburgh. Nose is not much, some straw, citrus. Palate is watery citrus, cardboard, metal finish. Pretty bad. At least a bit drinkable

Das DG Red Stripe Lager Beer. Desnoes & Geddes ist eine jamaikanische Brauerei mit Sitz in Kingston. (2015 von Heineken aufgekauft). Handliche kleine Flasche, einfaches Etikett, gefällt mir. Goldgelb im Glas, Schaumentwicklung ist sehr gut, hält aber nicht besonders lang. Säuerlicher Antrunk, sehr sehr wässriger Körper, minimal Hopfen im Abgang. Hier kann man nicht wirklich etwas herausschmecken, dass kann man ja auch positiv sehen, weil somit auch kein Fehlgeschmack da ist! Falls ich mal in Jamaika Urlaub mache, dann jedenfalls nicht wegen dieser Plörre. Von diesem Wasserbier gibt es auch noch eine Light-Version!!!

Craftakt (292) - Hannover, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2017
Undefinierbare fruchtige süße im Aroma. Metallisch störend. Im Geschmack ein widerlicher Mix aus gegorener Frucht, Bitterkeit, Wasser und unbeschreiblichen Noten, die ich so bei einem Bier bisher (zum Glück) noch nicht hätte.
