11.2oz bottle into pint glass.

A - Light pale golden with a large soapy white head.

S - Mild aroma of sweet grainy malts, corn.

T - Grainy, sweet corn flavor throughout. Light grassy hops evident towards the finish. Ends with lingering graininess, slightly musty.

M - Thin and watery. Average carbonation, smooth.

O - Red Stripe is a decent cheap mainstream lager. The flavor is clearly lacking, but there is nothing extremely offensive about it. Good drinkabilty. Refreshing on a hot summer day.
