2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33L bottle. Pours clear pale with a rocky white head. Aromas are herby and resiny hops, some iron. Flavor is mild sweet, with some decent cereal grain flavors, but most herby and resiny hops. Finishes with a mild, herby hop bitterness, along with some metalic flavors. Light body with a thin mouthfeel and active carbonation. Overall, despite it’s macro-brew status, actually pretty tasty for a continental lager. Nice clean hop character, and decent malt to make a fairly well-balanced beer.

0.5 boks. Gyllen og veldig klar med litt hvitt skum. Aroma av litt malt. Smak av litt malt. Verken smaker eller lukter noe særlig. Helt grei tystedrikk hvis en ikke har annet øl.

Strong distinct aroma of floral hops. Pours a clear yellow with a frothy white head that fades. Crisp dry flavour of hops. Quite high carbonation and a little thin. This is clearly not everyone’s favourite but as a day to day lager it’s definately one of the better ones.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tasted on 10/17/14 from a 16oz can purchased at the gas station. Pours clear pale golden with an average white head that slowly recedes to average, uneven lace. The nose is very light and hard to get much, but there is some dusty, corny hay malt, and just a bit of an herbal undertone. The flavor is a bit more cony sweet with the same dusty herbal note underlying, and a bit of "skunk". The body is light with average carbonation, and a short, sweet corny finish.

Insípida, falta de sabor. No la considero ni cerveza, prefiero pedir un agua que esto sinceramente. De las peores que he probado.

0.5l can served in an ordinary glass.
A: Pours a pale golden yellow color forming a big fluffy aired white head. Medium retention and some lacings left
S: Very characteristic Heineken smell of sweet malts and grassy/skunky hops
T: As the nose, the characteristic taste of sweet malts, skunky hops and Lager yeasts. End is reasonably bitter
M: Very light body and high carbonated level. A refreshing session beer. Aftertaste is citrus hoppy bitterness
O: good drinkability. Heineken has somehow, personality. Its smell and taste are a trademark

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2014 Heineken is probably the best known beer of the world, I don?t know why... The taste is watery with a small bitter.
