Nice lager with a slightly spicy kick to it. Bubbly head. This IS a decent beer - 13th percentile? I dont think so. Good if youre in the mood.

Nice beer. Better enjoyed straight from the bottle. I agree it is a bit pricey but enjoyable with just about anything. If youre going tropical, its a much better choice than Corona and a slightly better choice than Hatuey. Eets an oglay bottal bot eets a gude beer mon!

Clear straw color. The aroma is just awful, old paint is what came to my mind. It tastes just a tiny bit better than it smells. I paid 3$ for this beer !&/?$?"*&??"

Orlando Beer Fest: All malt, no carbonation and no hop whatsoever. It didnt seem this bad when I was in Jamaica. Maybe all the rum makes it taste better.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2002
Canned: Medium pale gold clear over a medium size and medium lasting yellow white head. Faint skunkiness and light floral hops aroma. Medium smooth medium carbonated soft drink style palate. Very mild to bland bitter sweet dilute cordial like flavours. Dull colourless and coring just about sums it up

Nice lager to try every once in a while, but a litle pricey for the modest experience.

Suttree (6194) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 13, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2005 Well, you know what youre getting here. Its a tropical lager made for drinking in warm - hot, really - climates. Very quaffable and not a huge amount of flavor, but more interesting than the deservedly maligned Corona.

This is one of those "when in Rome" beers. When in a reggae bar, it just feels right to have a Red Stripe in hand. Decent flavor, gotta love the painted bottle. Better than the usual Bud/Miller product.
