I have recently moved house and the only supermarket which I have near me is now a Tesco's. Before moving I used to be able to buy Red Stripe in most, if not all of the supermarkets near me. However, upon going into my new local Tesco's I found that they did not sell Red Stripe! The shop is a superstore and so big that I still get lost in there and ive been going there for 6 months now! Anyway, im not here to slag off Tesco's but to say how nice Red Stripe is.
Dont get me wrong, Stella is by far my favourite lager, but sometimes I cant help favouring a few cans of Red Stripe!
It has the benefit of being a wee bit cheaper than Stella and Red Stripe seems to have a very distinct flavour of its own. In my opinion its the only Lager which does not make you feel really bloated after about 6 cans and it definately goes down very well, maybe too well sometimes! As I were saying, the only disadvantage is that some places do not seem to sell it! Oh, and also the fact that Red Stripe seems to make you want to go toilet alot more than any other lager. Has anyone else noticed that??
I had my first taste of Red Stripe way back in 1990, on my first visit to Antigua. It remains a real favourite! Thanks for reminding me...
