3.5/5 rDev +16.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Presentation: 12oz custom brown "shorty" bottle with a red & white painted label. No freshness date. Label states: "For over 65 years Red Stripe has embodied the spirit, rhythum and pulse of Jamaica and its people." -- hey, I thought that was marijuana that did that?
Appearance: Clear pale gold in colour with lively carbonation and a healthy creamy white lace of a head.
Smell: Faint hop and grain aroma, with a touch of sulfur.
Taste: Light to medium body. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth and creamy on the palate (from the carbonation). Upfront dextrin sweetness followed by a rather lemon/lime hop bitterness, a slight crisp snap and a brush of coarse hop leaf on the palate. Finishes with a light grain dryness and grain/steely flavour.
Notes: Not a bad brew. Refreshing. Goes great with jerked foods or one of my favourites, curried goat. They sell it at Rhythm & Spice Caribbean Grill in Central Sq. Cambridge, MA. An excellent match with all of their food.
Serving type: bottle
