I used to love this stuff, but now I think it tastes skunky. If you can get the real stuff in Europe, it's not too bad. Otherwise, spend an extra buck an get something worthwhile.

smooth tasting lager much better in palate than domestic lagers. Despite its ordinary characteristics I much prefer this easy drinking lager to domestic counterparts. Oridinary but enjoyable

ick ick ick. this is my absolute least favorite beer. i *hate hate hate* heineken. i think it tastes just as shitty as coors light but there's this whole "ooh, we're heineken" attitude surrounding it. if i were queen of everything, the first thing i would do would be to pour every bottle of this craptastic beer into a drain.

Just as little flavor as all the other pale lagers, only for twice as much money...

Billyaustin (28) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2003
This is one of the most remarkable tasting lagers out there it doesn't taste like any American lager. Lives up to the name SKUNK. a little carbonated though.

80skid (65) - New York, USA - FEB 13, 2003
Not as good as some people make it out to be but not too bad either. Good beer to have after a long and hard day at work. Tastes kind of like bud but with a bit more flavor and hops. Doesn't smell to bad either.

It's stale and overrated. It tastes better from the can than from the bottle.

This beer always seems to be stale out of the bottle. Little flavor aside from an unpleasant bitterness.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2015 A beer l enjoy when fresh. I really think it is best in Europe, when served on draught. Very enjoyable at the Heineken Museum in Amsterdam. Some yeast, and quite bitter. Should be avoided in green bottle. Old rating below. Good from a keg can; can be great on tap. While nothing special, this beer is consistently good unless ruined due to the green bottle. Better than most American macros. 3/2/3/3/5

WabashMan (1018) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 10, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2014 Drinkable and ok when nothing better is around. I find this neither remarkable nor offensive. Preferable to the BMC beers but far from the good beers of nearly any style.
