This is the beer I drink at a bar, when I want to impress the ladies. It's slightly sweet, not too yeasty. It's sort of like Purple Haze's little brother. I like it, MON.

This is the first time I've ever poured it out of the bottle so I could rate it. It's a cloudy gold color that doesnt have a very good aroma. Taste is average not much to report. Much more ffulfilling if you drink it in the bottle while talking about how funny the commercials are

Bottle. Yellow with a nice white head. Sweet aroma (not good sweet). Taste is actually decent compared to beers like bud.

FlacoAlto (4228) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 5, 2004
A lightly hazy gold color with a thick white head. There is a sweetish grainy aroma, basically a typical cheap lager type aroma. It is sweet up front and it begins with a crisp ending in the finish, but then gets a bit rancid; a bit of buttery diacetyl here. This one is slightly offensive for a macro-swill, though not overly so. A very lackluster beer, and the rancid finish does not help.

It is not a crisp as the other lagers that I had before. It resembles more of a weak Dixie Lager. It does have a little malty sweetness to it. The body and head are normal for a lager.

A decent beer is all you can call this. I didn't mind drinking a few but stay away from drinking a lot of these. Nice aroma with an okay appealing taste.

I'm sure this would tast alright if I was on a beach in jamaica, but in canada in december this gets points for nothing. bleh.

Sweet taste and aroma. Nothing special but a nice average beer. Is very light and not sweet enough to be a true lager. Ok, but not worthy of cost.

I think Red Stripe is an OK beer. You can't drink too many or they really start to taste odd, but a few are OK. Did they steal this bottle from my Dad's old Schmidt's collection? Sort of sweet, with pretty nice body for a lager. I'll drink it again someday.
