The regular Red Stripe was temporarily unavailable, so I opted for a pint of Red Stripe Light.

A - Pours a very pale yellow, finger of light fluffy head with little retention and no lacing.

S - A toned down version of their regular beer, faint sweet corn and grainy hops.

T - Again, rather mild, sweet corn flavour and grassy hops with a bit of citrus that comes through on the finish.

M - Way too watery. This one definitely needs a bit more lift.

D - I was glad when they repaired the taps because this stuff just wasn't hitting the spot. Worth a try if you like light lagers, but I would recommend the regular Red Stripe over their toned down watery version.

$1 single from the aforementioned gas station. Usually don't buy light lagers under any circumstance buttttt gotta try em all.

Pours a dehydrated piss yellow with a large bone white head as expected. Carbonation is heavy, lacing is pretty decent at the end of the swill.

Smells like your typical light lager though red stripe has also been far more corn forward in my opinion

Taste follows suit. Super corny with a mildy bitter lime presence for whatever reason.

Feel is light and watery as you'd expect but it swallows easy and luckily it has no skunk.

Overall I assume this was $1 because it was old and didn't sell or perhaps others from the pack had broken. Dunno but for $1 there isn't much to complain about. There are better adjunct lagers out there.
