Beer_Barron (5) - AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2015 does not count
Dry crisp toasted hop taste, slightly bitter but not over powering. Sweet "corny" taste and subtle barley. Very well rounded beer seemingly ’flat and to the point’ there is a distinct difference from Heineken brewed in Holland than Australia.

jamesewelch (154) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 1, 2015
UPDATED: APR 6, 2015 From 12oz bottle, poured into tulip glass, leftover bottle from BJCP study group

Aroma: Spicy saaz hops, slight corny-sweetness

Appearance: pale yellow, crystal clear, nice big white head with low retention

Taste: light sweet, light bitter

Palate: light body, creamy texture, average carbonation, bitter finish

Overall: Not a bad beer. I’m a fan of Saaz, so I thought I recognized the aroma right away. Not a lot of hops, but the spicy saaz is a nice touch. A tad corny and sweet taste, which I’m not a fan of. Had this numerous times over the last twenty years, but not in the last 5-6 years. Years ago, the spicy hop and bitterness wasn’t something I enjoyed, now I actually like the subtle hop profile. I just wish it didn’t have that corn/cream ale taste.

R4N5H (210) - SINGAPORE - MAR 27, 2015
Draught pint at Empire at Singapore Land Tower on 19/03/15. Pale straw yellow in colour, clear and with a medium level of carbonation. Aroma of malt and grain. Smooth and medium body. Sweet and light bitterness. Nice cold refreshing lager - perfect to deal with the tropical climate in Singapore.

Pours a slight straw yellow. Has a pretty nice light creamy head....Aroma is grassy and biscuity, and some toasted malt....Taste is much of the same. The maltiness has a stronger taste than you would expect. I also taste some honey and corn, as the beer is a little sweetness...Mouthfeel is a little alcohol astringency, but it’s very clean. Finishes very clean, and it’s smooth. Dry, medium body. Lip smacking refreshing...Overall, it’s a good beer. I think of this as more what beer probably should taste like.

13.11.2013. Peruslagerille varsin mukava tuoksu, hieman banaania ja raikasta kevyttä hedelmää, myös hieman makeutta. Maku on varsin pehmeä, kukkainen? Melko mieto ja kevyt, peruslagerien paremmasta päästä.

Lubię wygląd butelki. A tak poza tym to nie mam nic do powiedzenia, poza tym: nie piję tego więcej.

On veut vendre cette bière, à coup de millions, investit dans la publicité. Tout cela pour vendre un truc qui est à mon goût horrible et qui veut manger le marché, à grands coups de dents. Il n’y a aucune innovation dans la qualité, c’est déplorable.
