I can't believe that so many people like this skunked up piss. Good ad campaign I guess because this is one more shitty brew in a green bottle. Light in color, skunky in taste, skunky in smell. NO good!

bleh. beer for the euro creeps. bland hoppy flavor coupled with a skunky aroma make this something to avoid

Not a bad lager when compared to the USA macro-brewers. 10 years ago, I hated this beer. Now that I have had a few more beers in my time, this isnt really bad. The aroma consists mainly of hops, and the flavor is hoppy as well. I'd easily drink this beer if given to me.

Your basic commercial beer. Very little complexity. Yeah, it's OK if it's hot and you're tired...but I'd almost rather have water.

This beer is very similar to most other commercial pilsners. Really nothing to it, very little aroma and flavor.

A nice light hop taste. Was expecting it to be skunky because of the bottle. But that wasnt the case, goes down really smooth.

A good standard beer. Decent flavor, but just middle-of-the-road in all categories. I like the special dark a lot more.

decent quality lager, had a few around the world cup and grew to like some of its qualities, it actually has more body than i at first appreciated, but there's no standout quality to this beer, it gets extra marks for sentimental reasons.

Some initial malt sweetness but it just doesn't hide the skunky hop smell and taste. The only time I drink this is when it is the best of the macros a place serves.

The classic lager that I swear is so much better in the Netherlands than anywhere else in the world. the US-import version pours dark yellow with a marshmellowy head. It's got that Heineken-skunk smell that makes me think of green bottles. The flavor si malty and a bit musty. This is an OK beer, but again ... this is the nectar of the gods in Amsterdam.
