one of those beers you accept when offered, then remember that thereís nothing very exciting about it besides its being drinkable and having a successful ad campaign

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2011 Can, 5%. Grainy aroma. Clear golden colour. OK stable white head. The flavour starts off sweetish. Mild bitterness. Not so bad.

Not as good as its premium status suggests. A little to arrogant for me. But not bad for a very macro brew.

A fair beer. Apparently Austin Powers likes this....I hate Austin Powers and mildly dislike Heineken. Too metally and "macro"-y, like a Dutch Budweiser

A Lager that thinks itís a metallic cider and priced about the same. How novel!

When I was in Amsterdam, I drank this stuff like water. I donít know why, it just seemed to taste better over there. It was probably just because Amsterdam was awesome and I associate the beer with it. Not my favorite, a step up from the Buds, Millers, ect., but IMO too expensive for what you get.

Heineken is just not interesting at all. Of course it goes down (as we say in Denmark), but thatís just not enough. (too) Easy to drink. The pure hoppy taste is ok.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2004 skunky with soem hop profile. Better than MBC, but not good. Metallic with some skunky malts and a touch of hops. Blah, blah, trendy, blah.

Faint hoppy aroma then smells kind of like alcohol too. White head disappears fast on top of the carbonated gold beer. Not too bad taste, hit more in the middle and end, is bitter, with slightly bitter aftertaste and short to medium finish. Feels a little strange in my mouth. Overall pretty good for a widely distributed session beer. I don't think I will be drinking too much of this otherwise.

What can one say about Heineken that everybody doesnít already know? Itís drinkable and better than some stuff. Alot of people really seem to think itís a great beer. I think itís alright but never buy it, I only have it when others buy it.
