De Estucerveza. En copa Teku. Jugando a Avernum 6. 19 meses tras consumo preferente. Aguada, insulsa y aburrida. Superindustrial. Al menos no desagrada, aunque para esto mejor cualquier industrial mas barata

Perhaps it was the decor at Toronto's Chubby's Jamaican Restaurant; perhaps it was the company; perhaps it was the goat stew, but I really enjoyed my Red Stripe. It was malty-sweet and worth it!

11 Oz Bottle poured into glass
Look - straw yellow color with a couple inches of foam and some lacing on glass
Smell - Very sweet smelling like cornbread. Very slight almond extract aroma. Unique smell for a lager...
Taste - Well this is interesting, nothing i have ever tasted before. It's got almost like a candy apple flavor like you would find at a fair. Sweet apple, grains, very slight and i mean slight hop presence. Medium carbonation. Has a pale profile that reminds me of Rolling Rock.

Overall, I've never had a lager that tasted like this, it's unique. It's not outstanding but i will look for this again, it was good. Grade is a B+

A refreshing. Easy to drink lager that’s a personal favorite when paired with a great slice of pizza pie. Born to go together

I wrote a review that vanished when I submitted it . Clear pale gold with two fingers of white head and good rings of lace. Smells like a grain bin. Taste is herbal grassy hops with a balancing amount of malt. Light to medium body. Finishes lightly dry and balanced. This is the Jamaican version. It is very tasty.
