Friday's Overrated Beer: Red Stripe

Ok, we're starting this again...

This beer is as overrated as a Caribbean vacation. A corny, skunky, utterly sub-average lager made popular by its sun-n'-fun connotations, Red Stripe is like Corona, but without the unique and delicious flavor.

now let's throw in the lowbrow, borderline racist ad campaign the importes of the Stripe are currently running on nationwide TV. You know, the clown in the sash mugging Jamaicanly for the camera as he hands Red Stripe to the tourist? I can't put my finger on it, but something about that ad makes my teeth grind.

Bottom line, if you're not on a cruise ship, or island paradise fenced off from the poverty and misery that surrounds it, you got no business drinking this dishwater. Do us all a favor and find a good Pils.

These adds are funny, however you must have a sense of humor to enjoy them. I guess thats why you grind your teeth.

Oh, and don't try and ruin peoples vacations by bringing up the poverty around My errrr their resort complex. Not everyone likes to go to Copenhagen to suck on nasty beer with dudes whos last name you have no chance in hell of ever pronouncing...
