Strong scent of malt and biscuit. Malty flavour with notable sweetness, a biscuity flavour, and mild bitterness. Medium body with mild carbonation. Quite enjoyable and better than average lager

330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Looks very thin clear for sure, pale golden. Medium sized brief head that disappears almost completely, only some lacing. Sweet grainy aroma, syrup and canned corn. Thin and watery mouthfeel, medium carbonated. Sweet sugary taste, sweet grains and boiled vegetables. Lacking bitterness, very poor brew.

12oz bottle. Pours yellow with a thin white head. Malt nose, grainy corn, hops flavors. Light body, fizzy carbonation. Not much to this. Nice to have one in hand, but from a strictly taste perspective it’s nothing special.

Had it in a bar. Fantastic packaging, the bottle is really cool. Better than the average lager, but not that much.

liked the bottle, reminds me a medicine bottle; pale yellow color with white head, very clear, aroma is malty with mild hops, taste is the same, low bitterness, light body, imo is decent for a macro lager, easy to drink and would pick this one on a sunny day... after that is a bit boring and nothing special. yet, better than most macros i used to drink.

Bottle from Krogers. Pale yellow with bright white head and light body. Faint fruity hops aroma, sweet mild thin taste. Clean sweet malt aftertaste. Ok, if Coors Light is the alternative.

MarcoBasile (319) - DENMARK - JUN 7, 2017
Light but semi sweet aroma. Malts, hops and grain. Pour is pale golden with a white head. Taste is malty sweet with fair crispness and slightly bitter fruity hops. Medium body, Watery to oily texture, smooth carbonation.

Has a skunky taste It's name is bigger than its flavor I mean if you are in Jamaica sure have a red stripe but don't go out of your way to buy a 12 pack cause they aren't worth it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ah, red stripe, you seemed so much better when i was like 19 and hadn’t had good beer yet. It comes in a cute grenade shaped bottle at least, but that’s about all you can say for it. The pour is light fresh piss, the smell is skunk garbage water, the taste isn’t as bad as a lot of pale lagers, but that sure as hell aint saying much, smooth straw and a wet towel. I don’t hate it, but it doesn’t hold up in the new beer era. Good for a post BBQ stream of yr fave new tv show with your boo boo while waiting to reconvene for some games and such with others maybe? Hooray!

Light straw color with light to medium head. Aroma: mostly corn and hay. Watery and fizzy palate, with malty sweet/ mild bitter aftertaste. Not terrible, but no hoorays.
