The appearance is much like any adjunct but the head had a thicker creamier look. The color was quite pale with a lot of bubbling through it.
The scent is a bit metallic with a corny adjunctness, a small tinge of hops and some light barley tones.
Most adjuncts are devoid of any malted barley flavor and stick to a corn and oat flavor but this gets enough barley that it makes it drinkable. The clean crispness of the flavor makes it an easy beer for the beach or for a hot and humid environment.
Overall, this one of the better adjunct lagers I've had and its certainly easy to drink.

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?
