Pouring clear, light orange with a sturdy, bubbly head, Red Stripe’s subtle aroma favors sharp cereal grains with a touch of sweetness. A big mouthful of this lager delivers grainy malts that splash down onto the tongue, striking at its sides. Meanwhile, a filling sweetness smoothes the tongue, then quickly vanishes as fizzy carbonation cleans the mouth. A simple lager meant for warm-weather relaxation, Red Stripe’s effervescence leaves the palate revived and quenched.
