Heineken has a skunky smell and taste that just turns me off. The flavor was unremarkable. Itís not the worldís worst beer, but it sure is the worst $13 a 12pack beer. Why anyone drinks this is beyond me.
Re-rate: tasted better when not ice cold, but still not a good beer.

looks great in the glass,and has a great hoppiness about it, but lacks the punch that the great beers have. The lack of bitterness does not do justice to the full-flavoured hops

*Re-rate* I decided to give this one another chance when my bud picked up cardboard enclosed 12 pack of these. I felt my chance of obtaining a fresh sample would be much better (damn green bottles). And so I did. This brew pours a light sparkling straw yellow. The large tight white rocky head is fully lasting with decent lacing. The mild nose is toasted malt and resinous hops. The fresh flavor is light and neutral with a fair balance. Bready, slightly sweet, and bland though. The thin body is watery and fizzy, and finishes crisp. Much better when not light struck, but still average IMO. *original rate 4/4/02 - 1,3,4,2; 7 (skunked!)*

I have a friend that likes this, so I drink it more than I care to. It has to be one of the skunkiest beers I have ever had. Have never been able to get past that and understand why some people like my friend love it. Typical light golden/dark straw color with aroma of anything masked by the skunk smell. Only for trendy folks.

With Beckís Dark, my other transition brew - the beers that weaned me away from Bud and on into the bliss of real beer. Iím guessing it was the faint taste of hops in an unskunked bottle that one fine day in Charlevoix ...

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2005 A trendy, club beer thatís got a terrific advertising firm behind it. If you ever doubted that ads can sell mediocre beer, drink this. Often skunked, but fairly smooth. A touch of hoppy goodness is present.

I donít get it. It smells skunky and has a terible after taste. as europeans go this one leaves a lot to be desired. Trendy and that is it.

Not a bad beer on the way up the beer evolutionary ladder. Yes, a little skunky but flavor is better than most in the mass marketed beer field.
