jcos (1779) - Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle on October 27th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a clear see through gold, with some bubbles.
Aroma: Aroma of cereal malt.
Taste: Very faint bitterness, cereal malt, not as stale as expected.
Palate:Light body, quick finish.

Summary: First off, this is Style Rating 72 of 73 for me - only Lambic Faro to go! I find it kind of ironic that Heineken sells their nearly non-alcoholic beer in a brown bottle that protects light, and their main beer in a green bottle that basically skunks an already poor product. But hey, I’m not in marketing! Similar to my experience with malt liquor, I expected worse than this. Yes it still has a low rating, but maybe a bad IPA is worse than this because with an IPA I have higher expectations.

VDuquerroux (1160) - Airvault, FRANCE - JUL 24, 2016
Bottle, 25cL. @Port-Leucate, bar Le Tutti Frutti. With Cyril, Ninie & family. A sparkling golden beer with a medium white head ; medium retention. Malty smell, cereal, caramel, herbal note. Medium sweet, dry note, lightly refreshing. Light body, watery texture, average carbonation, short light dry finish. Overall, a dull drinkable beer ; light of course ; not bad.

Bebum (724) - USA - APR 26, 2016
Clear gold, tall and persistent white head. Extra light body, lacking flavor, very refreshing mouthfeel, no heat, austere finish. Very bitter and dry. Yeasty, hoppy, nothing much else. Worth it for the low alcohol and calories. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbruner (3851) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 17, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2016 Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with bubbly white head. Aroma and taste of mild grainy sweetness, that?s about it. Lime Heineken without then booze, meh.

phfyysik (598) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAR 3, 2016
Bottle 355 ml. Pours golden clear with big sticky white top. Aroma is malty, some dust and honey. Taste is very watery, very light notes to beer (some bitterness and malts). Like bad tap water.

Bottle sample at DSG’s 10K rating celebration tasting at Dancing Camel, Tel Aviv. Thanks avrashi. Clear light golden-yellow with no head. The aroma has lots of honey and syrup. Sweet flavor of honey and syrup, watery. Light-bodied. Bad.

At a tasting, thanks Oren for this bizzare experience, no head, deep oxidised yellow color, aroma of bread and jam, flavor of bread and candy. Quite bad.
