Picked this up as a random case for a buddy to split on his Birthday. Ended up being a pretty good buy. I was honestly quite surprised by the fact that the Jamaicans can actually brew beer pretty damn well.
A- Pours a transparent apple juice colour. Carbonation is evident via the bubbles steadily rising. Slight head, fizzes out quickly leaving nothing at all.
S- Some slight flowery smells, a bit of corn. It smells very sweet but there is a small indication of sulfur.
T- A solid Lager. It has a nice sweet taste. Quite possible better than Yuengling Lager.
M- Decent mouthfeel. The bubbles pop nicely on the tongue and the beer rests nice an lightly.
D- Very good. Its smooth and crisp. A good nicely flavoured, highly drinkable beer.
This is a good beer to pick up. Its not amazing, but is a nice change of pace from the usual. I wouldn't drink it all the time simply for the price. While I previously stated the taste may be better than Yuengling Lager, i feel the overall beer itself is not.
All and all, good job Jamaica. Not too shabby.

Red Stripe is as good a mass lager as any, if over priced.
Lager is lager is lager.
A: As planned, golden straw body, with better retention and lacing than expected.
S: Grassy, lemony, grain, straight forward.
T: Watery, mild grain flavor with sweet corn base. Some hops add a bit of grass and spice. Nice finish, starts sweet, ends tingly.
M: Light w high level of carbonation.
D: As good as ... but over priced. What is it that people are choosing when they choose Red Stripe, a life style, the branding?
