3.35/5  rDev +29.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

I bought a 6 pack of these at the Jewel/Osco store in Glendale Heights, IL for $6.99. It's been awhile since I had a Red Stripe and I didn't even know they made a Red Stripe Light. They come in 11.2oz brown bottles and have the design pained on the bottle rather than using a glued on label. No freshness or born on date.

The beer poured a clear but pale gold color and made a ton of fizzy white head. My glass had over 4 fingers of foam to it and it lasted a little over 2 minutes. No lacing stuck to the glass while the head was receding, but as I started drinking it i could see lots of thin lace hug the sides of the glass with each sip.

This had a green grape/white wine smell to it. Not a bad smell, but not very beer-like.

This tastes more like a wine cooler than a beer. Sweet and fruity is the best way to describe it, with no hop presence at all.

The mouthfeel is light, crisp, and refreshing with medium high carbonation. No complaints with the mouthfeel.

With the low 3.6% abv. there is no taste of alcohol at all in here, so they're really easy to down. The problem I have with it is that it's not really very beer-like.
