I love this beer.

Had it for the first time on my honeymoon last year to Jamaica and this stuff is EVERYWHERE there. 6 AM we arrive and our driver stops on the way to the resort to buy us a Red Stripe...not kidding.

This is a macro, but a really good one. It smells skunky, but for some reason I really enjoy the smell of it. This is infinitely better than Bud or Miller.

Taste is very light and it is highly drinkable. Tastes a bit of rice and corn.

Hooray Beer!

No problem, mon.

A - Pours a light amber with a finger of head. Head disappears quickly

S - Flowery hops. that's about all that I can smell.

T - Not very hoppy, almost no bite at all. I like it a lot. A LOT.

M - a tad bit heavier than water.

D - I drank this one before I knew it. I wish i hadnt just bought one. sad day.

I absolutely LOVE this beer - it is damn near one of my favorites. It is very smooth, full of flavor and once you've had enough of them, makes you wwant to speak with a Jamaican accent.

I think it's uniquie for the fact that it's not available everywhere and I enjoy it everytime I have it.

Bought at ODB Liquors. Love this beer. This is my new go to when I just want something with dinner or in the afternoon. It's nice and light but doesn't taste like water. It has a nice crisp flavor that compliments any meal.

Take me to Jamaica....

Pours a pale golden color with a short lived bubbly head. Good clarity with almost no lacing. Pale malt nose with hints of esters and champagne. The malt is fruity and sweet, but not residual, and the hop flavor is mild, but balances the taste well. The light body and crisp carbonation leave a clean finish. Excellent choice for a summer session brew. Macros with a pleasent flavor are hard to find, this one manages to also be light and drinkable.

overall a good beer. In a brown bottle which is good, bad that it is only 11.2 oz instead of traditional 12 oz bottle. The taste of hops is indescribable but makes you want more. Drinkability is only average after 3 drinkablity weakens so dramatically.
