Smells skunky, very pale and watery with no head. Taste is bitter with no follow through of any kind. I would rather drink the beast.

Smells a little bit like cheese:-), nice hoppy aroma, also flavor but not bitter. Short aftertaste. Not much to say. But: Doínt go to the Heineken Brewery in Amsterdam. Terrible, they try to give you the so called íHeineken Experienceí. If you see the entrance of the brewery, run away, drink your beer somewhere else.

Cereal aroma - very light. Pale gold color. Head could be better. Light bitter hops with not much of a body. Clean palette and well balanced. Tastes better at the brewery, but be warned of hyper-marketing with the new Heineken Experience if you go. For all the money and energy spent on bells and whistles at the brewery the beer is still pretty mediocre.

A horrible example of what a Dutch Lager is supposed to be. The flavor was that of seltzer water and bitter hops. The head vanished almost imediatly leaving me with a feeling of flat soda in my mouth. This was a very poor beer.

This beer seems to get by merely on itís image. Itís not good, itís not high-class, it just is a better version of budweiser... and not much better at that.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a beer that is totally different between tap and bottle. On tap and fresh, itís smooth and refreshing, with no bad aftertaste. In the bottle, it has a funky odor and a bad aftertaste. My rating is for the tap and my memories of taking the Heineken Brewery tour in Amsterdam and getting loaded at 10 a.m. with a bunch of wild Australians, while the golden-hair Flems kept pushing more fresh beer our way.
