Good color,small white head lasted nearly as the thought that this might be a great beer.Malty aroma with a mild hop presence.mostly the same in the taste with a mild hop bitterness in the after taste.Nothing special but worth trying.

What to say...what to say. Well, Red Stripe is certainly more flavorful than most of the macro pack. Kind of a sweet malty feel. A less scrupulous brewer might throw the "bock" label on this one and get away with it in America. Still, there is something metallic or chemical about the flavor.

The thing I don't like about Red Stripe is the price. Very pricy version of an Am. Standard brewing style. Having said that, I think this beer is very tasty. I can drink several of these at a time. There are better beers for the price though.

Average. Refreshing. Better than Budweiser. That's pretty much it, although it's refreshing enough to be my lager of choice (because of limited other options) at one below-average off-licence.

Well, I think it's ok to brew this beer, but why import it to Denmark? I don't get it. The water-tap is almost as good as this beer.

caesar (6821) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2003
Below average pilsener. Skunky aroma, straw. Watery taste, hoppy taste. Dry and slightly bitter palate.

skortila (5473) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2003
dirty unfinished malty smell. Clear golden colour. Pours out quite okay. Head is gone relative fast. taste, hmm. not much taste there. Bit hops perhaps, some dirty malts. Palate is water. Poor Jamaicans, I would start a bobslee team too if I had to drink this everyday.

I didn't like this beer at all and I really wanted to. I will re-rate this one but it seemed like a lot to pay for Miller lite with hops added.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 26, 2003
Poured a pale yellow with small white head, typical of this style. Aroma is slight malt with skunky floral hops. Flavor is smooth and mild, nothing outrageous, very suiting to the brown bottle, heinikan should learn a lesson on this one. Refreshing finish with a slightly dry and bitter moutfeel. Not bad.

This is a great beer to drink when you are on an island or at the beach. Way better than corona. I had this stuff in jamaica and it was great.
