Brewed in the same high quality tradition as the original Heineken, but lighter in taste and with fewer calories and carbohydrates.

Being introduced in four select US markets beginning in June 2005: Phoenix, Arizona; Dallas, Texas; Tampa, Florida; and Providence, Rhode Island.

Bottle @ home. Pours brilliantly clear gold with a 1" tall frothy and bubbly white head, short retention with spare lacing and the head receding to the side of the glass. Aroma is spunky malt graininess with light spicy hops, light fruity notes though not estery. Sweet corn DMS notes enter and the grain/corn becomes more prevalent as it warms. Flavor is light malt, slight grain and husk notes with rice and corn. Light to faint spicy hops and a light hop bitterness are well balanced with the malt. Finish is dry with a light bite to it. Body is light and thin with medium-high carbonation.

Bottle gushed and over flowed on opening. Pale straw color, super pale corn color and taste, like water.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2014 Just a light summery beer. Donít drink this expecting a premium lager. It should be compared to other light beers. It is basically for those watching the calories or planning to drink for a few hours. Not bad as a thirst quencher or to go with salty food. It has a mild Heineken taste but not much more.

skunk flavored beer, surprised i havenít reviewed this earlier. It is like a watered down heineken and the flavor remains the same. Offensive aroma and slightly drinkable

Bottle. Pours a clear very pale straw body with a one finger fizzy white head that actually had a bit of retention. The nose screams green bottle Euro Lager from a foot away. Slightly skunky and grassy with a touch of hop extract. The flavor is very watery, but itís not especially offensive in any way. Thereís just a light bit of bready malt, some grassiness, minimal bitterness on the finish, and a light lingering sulphur laced note on the back end as well. Very light bodied and watery with fizzy prickly carbonation. Iíve had a lot worse when it comes to Pale Lagers.
