16 oz. can. What was I thinkin'? Pours light, clear golden with a small white head that falls quickly to a ring of bubbles around the rim of the glass. Mild malty aroma with just a hint of the skunk. Flavor is sweet and thin with a metallic hoppy finish. Light body and significant carbonation. To think, I once believed the Heineken myth and the advertising that would have us believe this is a quality beer...

The overall flavor and aftertaste is slightly bitter and weak, yet I still find myself buying a six pack when there are no good imports to chose from.

The only reason IM drinking this is that it was the most decent beer at the concert last night. Bodily evacuation fluid colour with skunkorama nose. The skunk sprays in your mouth initailly, but then leaves to yield some of the malts and nice dry hops... i still would like to try a fresh heineken to know what is its real taste.

I hate this crap. It does have some taste to it, unfortunately the taste is that of tin foil with a minimal beer flavor. Another green-bottle skunk-brew with which to fill my trash can. Anyone know why all the green-bottles taste like aluminum?? The excessive metallic taste is far to common between them to be a coincidence.

This beer is decent, but nothing to go out of your way for. Like so many other beers out there, it just lacks distinction. 'Unsurpassed clarity' it says in the commercial description - I heartily disagree.

I can taste the flavor of not quite ripe hops in water. One of the worst beers I've had

The old standby at many a bar, this beer really is more interesting then most US domestic macros, but not very good compared to what's available here. It's pale yellow color and thin white head make it look like most cheap domestics. The aroma is really faint, you can almost sense some malt if you wish for it hard enough. The flavor is sweet, with a nice dry finish, that's the only reason i've drank it all these years i guess. Not very great, but i'll probably always order one once in a while.

Heineken appears to be a cheap light beer, but it suddenly awakens the taste buds with a crisp flow.

Hard to find fresh in the US but when you do find it you will enjoy. Good even taste with good carbonation and appearance.

As you open the bottle, a skunky smell greets you. Nice golden and heavily bubbled beer that lacks anything that looks like brew. Probably the most overrated beer on the market. Only ignorant or brainwashed people can believe that this low quality macro stands a thousand miles above north-american industrial lagers. Actually it's closer to real beer, but not that much...
