Bottles, cans and on tap on multiple occasions... especiallty when there is nothing else around that would be better. Nose is sometimes skunky, sometimes not. Other aromatics include grass and hay, pretty standard pale lager. Taste is lightly sweet and offers some light cereals and grass again. Body is light to medium, carbonation pretty high to enhance drinkability I guess... Anyway, nothing to write home about but not the worst macro option ou there. Canned version was best for me, are the kegs intentionnally skunked?

can: pours a nice amber color with smallish white head. Aroma is sweet malty with undertone of boiled cabbage. Taste is initially malty sweet giving way to a slight balancing hop spiciness with after taste of cardboard (?) which is the closest thing I can think of that I have encountered. The wet cardboard taste continues to grow during subsequent sips. Very noticeable when you swish it around in the mouth and engage all your taste receptors. Medium to medium-light body.

Tja, von Deutschen zu erwarten Heineken neutral zu berwerten ist schwierig. Heineken ist das Bier welches ich wohl in den meisten Ländern der Welt getrunken habe. Dies ist immer beständig gleich egal wo es man trinkt. Man kann dieses Bier wohl erst schätzten wenn man es im Kontrast zu Anderen getrunken hat. Lager ist ein unterbewerte Biertypus und hier ist Heineken ein beständiges gutes Bier. Vergessen wir alle Bewertungskriterien ausser Süffigkeit und etwas Bitterkeit und Geschmack. Das hat Heineken und ist gut: im Flugzeug, in Amsterdam als Abschlussbier, in den Bahamas oder Teneriffa am Strand, im Japan vollkommen überteuert im Nachtklub, in London in der Lounge, in Dubai in der Minibar,...

Poured from a bottle. Pours a light golden yellow and makes a nice foamy head. Aroma is if crisp apples, yeast and malt. Tastes a bit grassy and malty with a light hoppy feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can on the flight to Cuba. Might as well get used to the light lager. Aroma is green apple, carbonic spritz, corn and lager notes. Very pale yellow with a frothy white head that lasts. Flavour is sharp apple, corn cereal, some adjuncts. Palate is light watery and sharp carbonation. Meh.

Its color was a bright straw yellow with very good clarity and some nice visible carbonation. The head was bright white in color, average in size but fades out fast leaving not much in the way of lace. The aroma had a fairly clean light grain and light floral hops with just the slightest funk. Its flavor is clean and crisp. Malt flavor is light with a dry biscuit like grain mixed with some very light floral hops. The body is light with a thin easy drinking texture. Its carbonation is balanced and the finish is fairly dry, clean and crisp. This is your very simple, basic Euro lager

Grains, grass and cooked vegetables. Pale golden with a white head. Medium sweet and light bitter. Light body with a lively carbonation. Overall a drinkable Pale Lager, but very bland and boring.

Bottle at Sweetwater during Germany/Ghana match. Basically a piss yellow color. It’s best quality is the cold temperature it was served at. Obviously a mass marketed lager and not trying to go after a beer drinker in pursuit of taste or flavor. Bitter with no balance. A beer you only drink in desperate situations or if you just needed a new one to rate.
