LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2003
This was the best choice at a bar with not many choices. Red Stripe does have more flavor than Bud and Miller and the bottles shape is cool, but it is still a fairly watered down, uninteresting beer.

HarmonKill-a-Brew (407) - Wilmar, Arkansas, USA - APR 5, 2003
This is pretty good beer, but way overpriced. Nice aroma... the appearance of the beer itself is pretty average, but it gets an extra point with me because of the cool bottle. A nice thirst-quencher, but only if someone else is buying. Much better stuff out there for the same or less money.

No strong after taste, take time to paint on the label. Goes down smooth. Not for the average beer drinker. More of an aquired taste. But a definite must at every venue from a bar to a wedding.

Frank (4172) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2003
Straw yellow in color. Very thin but lingering head. Semi-sweet malty aroma. Crisp carbonation. Refreshing sour notes. An above average American standard.

duece (103) - Waterford, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2003
Pleasent aroma and start, but slightly sour and way too strong on the finish.

JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAR 24, 2003
Straw color with a wispy white head. Aromas of light grain, minimal floral hops with a touch of acidity. Watery malt and somewhat salty. Bite in the finish that may be fine with certain foods on a hot day, but not an easy drinking lager.

ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2003
A good american standard. It has a little more flavor than most, but for what it is its a little expensive.

Shag (2981) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 14, 2003
This is my favorite American standard. A typical lager but lacks the adjunct taste of alot of others. This was my favorite beer when I didnt know any better. Best with Jerk wings and other tropical food. Pretty good overall but a little pricey.

SlamminScott (40) - USA - MAR 9, 2003
Reminded me a little of a Killians Red. Nothing special but the bottle was definitely interesting to drink out of! It has to be the smallest beer bottle I've seen! It's hard to believe they fit 12 oz in there. The bottle was probably more memorable than the beer if that says anything.

Unusual. Frothy palate with more character and bitterness than average. Like a lighter bodied version of Bud.
