Has anyone actually had Red Strip? How would it compare taste and price wise. I keep telling myself to get some, but I always forget. You have to support the people that actually make comercial breaks enjoyable.

I like Red Stripe a lot. It doesn't really feel like you're drinking beer, though, because the bottle is so stubby. There's just something that doesn't feel right about beer not going down a long neck. Of course if you drink beer out of a glass, then it doesn't matter.
red stripe is a lager, which means it's in the same family as budweiser and most of the american, main-line beers. it's ok; nothing special. it's main selling point is that it's jamaican so if you go to a raggae place or something, you can feel authentic. it's got more body, and more flavor, than the budweisers of the world, but not up to the german or even american craft-brews. probably give it about a 4 out of 10. maybe 5.

I enjoy Red Stripe, but I would even suggest that most of those beers you mentioned aren't anything special. Corona is so overrated. If you want a good, cheap mexican beer get Pacifico or Bohemia...
Rolling Rock is nothing special IMO. Truthfully I don't really care for many American beers. I would guess Sam Adams is my favorite American beer. I enjoy micro brews from local places, which are American beers, obviously. With that said, you have to to Europe or Mexico for the better beers.
