Red Stripe is a smooth and fun beer to drink - who doesn’t love those little bottles?!?! So cute!!

330ml bottle. Pours clear golden, thick white head stays nicely. Aroma is grainy, some honey, mild tartness. Taste is grainy, malty, watery. Light body, below average carbo, allmost flat. Weak brew.

12oz bottle pours a clear pale golden with a medium white head. Musky sweet malt aroma. Watery sweet caramel malt aroma. Meh.

I drunk it on a cruise ship in the Carabian in bottled form. A regular pilsner taste and you can taste the relatively low alcohol rate of 4.7%

As easy going and loving as a lager from Jamaica can get. Loved the quirky commercials as a kid. Not hyper-carbonated as a typical lager. Doesn’t have the sickly sweet corn flavor. Watery, but quenching enough for a hot day.

Rhombic (136) - Elx, SPAIN - AUG 1, 2017
Pours yellow, thick head. The aromas are sweet, cerealy and with a bit of a maltiness, lager-like. Peach and estery fruitiness too. So far it seemed as if I had found a great lager. But no. First sip- metallic, dull, sweet and virtually no flavour. Homeopathic citrus in flavour. Crisp. I give 3/10 because you could drink it and it was not clearly off. Watery, watery, watery. No finish and one might question whether there was even a start to begin with. Pretty terrible.

500 ml can @home,bb 31/08/2017. Golden,clear,lively carbonation. Aroma... hmm... echo of some malt and even more distant echo of open sewer. Taste - carbonated water with minimal maltiness. May work well at thirst quenching.

Pint. Pours a pale clear gold with thin white head. Aroma: Mild biscuity malt, grass, citrus notes. Not aromatic. Taste: Very mild biscuity malt. Thin bodied. Moderate carbonation. Mildly sweet. Not much to this beer. Very average.

A frothy white head atop a pale yellow body. The smell is minimal and indistinct. It taste just like it smells. A little bland and bubbly, but great off the palate. It’s like a session beer, but at import prices. It’s not a bad beer, it’s rather good. But there are better beers and there are cheaper beers too.

jacobarts (213) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2017
Bottle Bought in meny in grimstad norway. Bright clear pale color with fastly diminishing white head. Aroma. Some malt. Weak aroma. Taste is like a sparkling water, refreshing on a hot summer day.

Aus der Flasche im 2013-01 getrunken. Sicher nichts besonderes aber ein schönes leichtes Bier - überraschend gut trinkbar für warme Tage.
