I like it, used to like it more when it wasnt so damn commercial. I still cant figure out what that taste is though that seems to linger on and on and on

I could choose heineken over a lot of other beers. I really like the name "Heineken", it just sounds kinda cool. Otherwise, i think it's sort of average and not as great as some people say it is.

In all fairness, a decent continental lager. Similar to St. Pauli's Girl except not as good. Now the drawbacks - Heineken has a terrible head, is overcarbonated and is generally unattractive in appearance. It's horribly overpriced and overhyped as well. If you have money to burn on a mass-manufactured beer, buy Guinness. It's truly good instead of just decent.

Undiscernible bottling date; however, who cares? Pale golden color. Not much to recommend. I have had samples with an intense, cloying saccharine-like sweetness. However this one was just bloody awful with a hint of cooked vegetable off-flavors. Geesh.

Tried the big Heine in the can. Pale golden color. Very light bodied with a clean palate. Refreshing but fairly dry and boring.

Much better out of the tap than from the bottle, and not even worth trying out of the can. For some reason, tastes much better in Europe than in the US. Very good simple flavor, nothing offensive about it at all, just goes down smoothly with a nice flavoring of barley and hops.

Way overhyped as most big name brands are. Heineken just has never done it for me.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2003
Pale yellow, bit of foam. Crisp body, grassy and slightly skunky smell, tastes a bit sweet with little to no aftertaste. An inoffensive, passable, non-horrid lager that happens to be backed by great commercials.

Everyone's tried a Heine haven't they? Skunky yet tolerable, nice balance, easy to drink 9 or 10, even for a dumbass Budweiser apologist. Decent beer, no complaints.

Horribly bad beer. Bitter and horrible. Expensive and horrible. Skunky to the extreme and muy mal overall.
