Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a light yellow amber with a trace of head dissipating to a ring around the glass. Typical bland adjunct lager aroma of sweet malt with hints of grain and corn. Taste is mild biscuit malt, hops. A bit dry and harsh in the finish. Light bodied. A little less balanced than other adjuncts.

Appearance: The appearance of Red Stripe was of a normal lager. Hard to tell the color due to the brown and unique bottle that it came in.

Smell: I was able to smell the hops within this brew. I thought it was a pleasant smell.

Taste- I really like the taste of this beer. It was smooth and I was able to taste the alcohol.

Mouthfeel- The texture of the beer is very smooth.

Overall- I thought this was a good beer overall and I would drink it again.
