This certainly isn't a bad lager: The balance of malt and hops is pretty good... but also rather safe. I'd say despite being pretty drinkable, it's just not a remarkable brew.
Just a few days ago, though, I coupled it with fish and chips, and the beer came to life quite nicely! All the flavors merged and reinforced each other really well: Maybe it was the beer's malt egging on the fish's batter. Pretty good!
Anyway, my final word would be to try Red Stripe with a meal. It's not half bad that way! Otherwise, it's an easy-going but ultimately uninspired drink.
