Red stripe is an alright beer for a gas station beer. I would not drink it again unless if it were given to me or if I did not have a good choice, possibly one in a build a six to not repeat beers in a cooler without a good selection. So to put it short it is an alright choice at a bad store or a poor choice at a good one.

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.
