330ml bottle poured into a white wine glass · fridge temp · best by june 2011

Appearance: Pours a pale yellow with lots of quickly building head. 2.5" tall, off-white color. The beer is amazingly clear, unlike a lot of the beer I've been drinking lately. Good retention, lots of pillowy craters. The fun continues as a single stream of bubbles steadies itself to the top of the beer.

Smell: Pilsner malt, some mineral/metallic aromas, with faint aromas of hops and adjuncts. Very basic.

Taste: Very plain pilsner flavor without much bitterness or residual sugar at all. Slight biscuits without much alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Thin, slick and refreshing without any alcohol burn present. Mild dryness.

Drinkability: This isn't a standout for flavor but it sure would be easy to drink a lot of it. It's a refreshing lager, but that's where the complexity stops.

A bottle I brought back from a recent trip to Jamaica.

Appearance: It has a nice pale straw-yellow color to it. It has a white head that dies down fast and leaves little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of grainy malts, corn and a light grassiness.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some grainy malts, corn, light grass and some skunkiness.

Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a light and watery overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with bland flavors and aromas.

Red Stripe...Jamaican for beer! This beer pours light, with mild carbonation, and produces a medium, frothy head. It has a malty taste, with metal aftertaste, and you can feel the carbonation as you drink it (which is on in my opinion). It is decent tasting, filling, but does not cause much bloating.
