1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2004 a very very popular beer, and I dont have a clue why? it doesnt taste good, it´s very light, the only thing good about it I can think of is that it tastes ok very cooled in hot weather. it pulls a decent head though....

Is it supposed to be stale tasting, either way they do a good job of it. Not worth the extra money of an import. I know Warsteiner isn't a lager, but if you want a half-decent mass-produced popular Euro-import I'd go with that one instead of this one.

Wow, this stuff is bad. If the color and smell wasn't enough to turn you off, the taste sure finishes it off. Extremely skunky with that nasty sugary sweet flavor. I have *no* idea why people think this is a good beer.

It always seems like it is skunked or been sitting out in the sun or something. Maybe you do have to go to Europe to really apreciate it, but no thanks.

Light, simple lager with some aftertastes that suggest it's been sitting too long. Go to Europe if you want to try Heineken the way it's supposed to taste!!

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...

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.
