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.

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.

I rate this higher than it should be, mostly for nostalgia. Weak and underwhelming on later tastings, this was one of the first beers I really enjoyed in college. Deceptively sessionable despite the alcohol content. I probably shouldn’t have ruined my memories by trying this again...

Clear to hazy amber with a soapy off-white head. Scent is sweet malt,grains....musty. Taste is malt, grass, bread, slight bitter. Pretty average....a bit earthy. Nice bottle, though....very pleasant "thunk" when unplugged.

Wasn’t bad. I could taste the alcohol in it which I never like, but it went down pretty easy. Plus, now I have a swing-top bottle for home brew.

Deep gold. Bright white, extremely fine head settles quickly to an incomplete cap leaving minimal lacing. Nose is caramel malt, earthy, leafy hop, and a not insubstantial whiff of sulfur. Some mineral comes through with time. Pretty thin in the mouth. Some malt, but not much caramel.

Deep red in color. Smells of malt and caramel. Tastes just like it smells. Not a bad ale , just nothing super. Caramel stays after the drink goes down ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
