2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rating #100. A beer that is way overhyped but not that bad. Easy to drink, although can be a bit skunky if it is old. A unique sour flavour seems to be present. Decent colour, little head.

light yellow color, skunky aroma. Also very skunky tasting. Stay away from this beer, one of the worst on the market. Also the morning after are brutal, if you drink a lot of this beer in one sitting.

Highly over priced. The beer is drinkable, but not a whole lot to it. It seems to always have skunkiness to it. Not a good finish. When you want a better Heineken, go with a Dutch Windmill.

Looks fancy in itís green bottle, yet aside from the fact that youíre drinking a Heineken, which adds to your ícoolnessí factor, it really has nothing else going for it. Very unpleasant smelling, along with itís taste.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale greenish yellow in appearance, fair lacing. The aroma is ambiguous...the only major smell is that of generic beer. I really donít understand the success that this beer garners. The only thing that I can imagine is that the ambiguous taste appeals to beer drinkers who want to be cool and kitzchy but have no idea what theyíre doing.

A truely classic beer. The colour and flavour are unduplicated. Maybe it doesnít stack up to the sophistication of the great beers of the world but there is just something special about Heineken.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 440ml can. This looks really nice with a lovely gold colour and a good thick white head that leaves a nice lacework. Little in the way of aroma, sweetish malt if anything. Malt is initially on the palate, but all fades after a few seconds..I have to say that this was tasted after a LONG HARD day at work, and although itís not a top quality beer, I must say very cold,straight from the fridge, it went down a treat.. so much so that I had all of the 4 pack at one sitting...hey, itís Saturday night and sometimes itís good to drink something that doasnít tax the tastebuds too much. Anyway, itís much better than the Heineken that was available when I was a student... but that was long ago and probably best forgotten about, this is ok, and I would have it again, much better than other simalarly priced lagers,eg Miller or Bud.

A skunky taste and smell, this beer is too light to possess any kind of true flavor. Watered-down and weak, this brew is good for college kids that canít see past the "Imported" sticker. Pass.
