Typical Heineken skunkiness, but thinned down. Watery texture and flavors seem way to timid and weak. The perfect beer for those people who donít really like beer on those occasions when they would really rather not drink a beer.

This was not a bad beer, but way overpriced for what you are getting. A little skunked but around here, I think people think that is part of the "import" flavor. Kinda wierd if you ask me. I would drink this again if it were on special in a bar, but doubt I would buy a case.

Very weak and light, with really little to no flavor. You could put this in front of someone and fool them into thinking they are not really drinking beer. A carbonated beverage of sorts, with some light maltiness and just a hint of perfumey hops. Nothing here to speak of.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 8, 2006
Bottle at Einsteinís, Katy, TX

Pours like water with yellow food coloring added- no depth whatsoever, and very little carbonation. Aroma is less skunky than the full-blown calorie fest of the original, but itís waaaay to close to a N/A to be respectable. Flavor is crisp, with weak corn and sharp hops. Palate is watery with a slight tingle. I probably will not ever drink this again.

Hey folks!.... Itís a LIGHT beer! That means less flavor, less aroma, less head, less filling! For a light, not too bad. Nice hops. A little weak tasting, but again, not bad for a light beer.

Ritterkreuz (179) - Seneca Falls, New York, USA - APR 7, 2006
I didnít know Heineken made bottled water. All kidding aside, this beer has no aroma, and almost no flavor. There is just a hint of grain in the after taste, but thatís it. Goes down smooth though, almost too easy to drink.

Had 2 bottles of this on Saturday, 03/25/06 at the Comedy Cafe in Milwaukee. Bottle is slim, and sexy. Pours a light yellow glass of fizz, like over carbed soda pop. Bright white head that disappears alomost instantly. Smell of wet cardboard. Has a weak, graining flavor thatís extremely watered down, but funny tasting. Almost no buzz factor. In fact, it wouldnít surprise me if this is really re-packaged Buckler! This does not taste like watered down Heineken. It doesnít taste anything like Heineken at all. All light beer sucks, but this isnít even good compared to any other light beer. Itís really horrible, smelly, and bad tasting. Like drinking funny smelling dirty water. The club had a 2 drink minimum, which is why I suffered through another one. Oh, well. At least the glass bottle is cool.

Very reminesent of Bud. In fact almost a dead ringer I think. The beer has the same short built flavors of cheap adjuncts and short crispy hops. Actually very refreshing with absolutley no finish to speak of. But itís what you would expect.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Light straw color with a wispy white head. A touch of light malt in the aroma, minimal hops that one would expect. Mild acidic malt with a dry finish. Quite fizzy. Not much here.

FREE BEER!! this last st pattys day a couple of hot heineken girls rolled up with about 6 cases of iced new heineken light at no charge. funny thing was i didnt even realize it was light until somebody pointed it out to me...thatís why it was free promo thing. it did taste better then any heineken i have ever had because it was ice cold and for once not skunky. however, it was yourtypical light lager juice we all have tried a million times. horay for free beer even if it is heineken.
