Red Stripe

Red Stripe (4.7%): an adjunct lager from Jamaica. A well-known brew because 1/ It's from Jamaica, you know that exoticness 2/ Bottle has a cool roundish design.

  • Pours a very pale gold liquid.
  • Smells fairly sweet. That's all I got.
  • Taste is bready.
  • Aftertaste is very mineral-like, fairly acid. 
  • Smooth buzz.
  • Really cool bottle, very original unbeer design.

Verdict: A solid little lager.

Grade: B


  1. I always think of old medicine bottles when I see Red Stripe. Definitely a good beer though, should pick one up soon.

  2. tried it in scotland last year. It's ok, but not a "B" in my opinion. but it was the only drinkable Lager i tried there
