Red Stripe Jamaican Lager

Bottle, $3.75, Buffalo Wings Bar & Grill, Douglasville, GA, USA.
I probably haven’t drunk any Red Stripe for the best part of 10 years, and from what I’ve read since, and what I remembered from back then, I was expecting very little. In fact, I was expecting to be disappointed. So I was delighted when I experienced a refreshing and clean lager that was very drinkable with none of the nasty aftertastes and junk associated with so many macro adjuncts.
The pour was a golden yellow with a small but decent head that lingered. Some lacing too. A fairly sweet, but nicely balanced experience that was above all else, clean. So often one gets those nasty chemical, acidic aftertastes with over carbonated watery tastes. Not here. Very refreshing, clean, sweet taste. Was it bland? Yes. Was it full of character? No. Did I experience a complex beer? No, but I did enjoy it and would certainly reach for it again as a thirst quencher and everyday, adjunct lager.
