Drink Red Stripe and Red Stripe Light

I wrote: "[...] [Flying Dog Doggie Style Classic] Red Stripe Jamaican Lager. 11.2 oz. Nice and easy soft taste. Had once or twice before." 6:37PM ET


It's movie night and the movie theme is capoeira! We watched Only the Strong (1993) and Besouro (2009).


Wikipedia says that the bottle sizes in the U.S. were decreased from 12 oz. bottles to 11.2 oz. bottles in 2010. In any case, I had my Red Stripe from the bottle.

I wrote: "Red Stripe. Nice flavor. I've had it before. One of my favorites."


I've had Red Stripe (links to one of my blog posts) several times before. This is my first time having a Red Stripe Light. I wrote "Light stripe 11.2 good regular."

This Red Stripe tasted okay at the start, but by the end, when it was warmer, I was enjoying it less. 4:59PM PT

Website Information:
Red Stripe is an icon reflecting the roots, vibrancy, and pride of the Jamaican people. It all began in 1928 when two Jamaicans, Desnoes & Geddes (D&G) began brewing it in a soda-pop factory in Kingston.

The brand has been the recipient of numerous international awards for fine quality and taste including 11 gold medals at the Monde Selection and the “Grand Gold Medal” in Barcelona in 1991.

Red Stripe Jamaican Lager has a refreshing taste, perfectly balancing malty-sweet and lightly hoppy flavors. The result is a lager that’s crisp, clean and easy to drink. Red Stripe is moderate in body, bitterness, hop aroma and has a low butterscotch flavor. 4.7% ABV
Available in 11.2oz bottles in 6 pack & 12 pack. Also available in a 24oz bottle.

Red Stripe Light Lager is a lighter and more refreshing beer that still provides that unique Jamaican flavor. Fresh and clean with a slight fruity note, it is smooth, with a short, mild aftertaste. Good flavor balance with bitterness well blended in. 4.1% ABV.
Available in 11.2oz bottles in 6 pack.

Red Stripe Cans are the perfect way to enjoy the taste of Jamaica when glass isn’t allowed.
Available in 16oz cans.
