COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A slightly roasted malt gives it a light amber color. The rich flavor dominates the malt/hops balance and is very popular among most beer drinkers.

Out of a bottle. Pours a clear amber with nice enough head. The aroma is weird - almost showing an alcohol, but maybe more like band-aid. No real malt detectable. Taste is thin and uninteresting with the malt again not showing any of the Vienna characteristics.

Grainy malt nose, with a light hint of grassy hops. Slightly bittersweet, with a grainy malt texture, light hints of caramel and toffee. Not very impressive.

Clear golden color. Fizzy sweet with bitter overtones and thick, bittery syrupy aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear amber with a medium off-white head with some light lacing. Aroma and Taste is sweet lightly toasted caramel malt and grains, some yeast, fruity, light grass notes and light bitterness. Palate is a medium body, crisp with good carbonation. Finishes with sweet lightly toasted caramel malt and grains, some grassy notes, fruity with some light bitterness. Overall an ok brew, crisp and refreshing.

My favorite bottle for home brew and it comes filled with a pale brown beer that is great for drinking after mowing the lawn, but otherwise boring. Bottle good...beer inside not-so-much.

Bought this because it was cheap and I wanted the bottle. It’s not a dark amber like i was expecting, and is really sweet. Was hopeful for better, but ready to expect it to be not as good as I hoped.

Always had this pegged for a low end ale, but it makes more sense as Vienna or light marzen. Mild roasty aroma, dark orange with lots of liveliness and one finger head. Tastes caramel sweet with a grainy aftertaste. Slick body, yet strangely filling. There’s a poster at Sunset tap with this beer pictured in front of Strasbourg Cathedral that says "Monuments of Alsace." Nice try Heineken. Nicer bottle at least. Might be okay for cheaper beer, but not worth the import price.

Alright. Pours a nice light brown. No smell, and taste is pretty domestic ale. Nothing too special. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a light amber with a decent white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is sweet malt, grain, caramel, and a bit of citrus. Decent hot day beer.

Pours a clear amber color. Aroma and taste of caramel malts. Not much hops here to speak of. Finishes clean.
