Grains, grass and cooked vegetables. Pale golden with a white head. Medium sweet and light bitter. Light body with a lively carbonation. Overall a drinkable Pale Lager, but very bland and boring.

Bottle at Sweetwater during Germany/Ghana match. Basically a piss yellow color. Its best quality is the cold temperature it was served at. Obviously a mass marketed lager and not trying to go after a beer drinker in pursuit of taste or flavor. Bitter with no balance. A beer you only drink in desperate situations or if you just needed a new one to rate.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener every time Ive had it poured out. The appearance was a light clear yellow color with fast rising carbonation to try to fill a rapidly dissipating quarter fingered white foamy head. There wasnt any lacing whatsoever. The smell was skunky with some cooked vegetal quality about it and a little bit of soy sauce. The taste was bland with the soy sauce. On the palate, this one sits fairly light and sessionable. Overall, well, its good for the Euro Pale Lager style but honestly Ive never really cared for this one.

Bottle from Floyds Pub while watching the World Cup. Transparent yellow in color with minimal head. Aroma of malt. Taste of light sour and some malt. Very bland, but a good beer to drink while watching sports.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 Review: Can of Heineken pale lager, 5%ABV Heineken, a good solid beer, crisp and refreshing. The easy drinking lager is ideal drinking fare for sporting events or parties. An appearance that has a very clear pale golden colour. On pouring, you get a nice average sized head that leaves a good looking lager. Has steady lacing Smell is a distinct yeast aroma with grassy hops. A pleasant lager smell. The taste is a quite distinctive yeast flavor with a tiny hint of hops, crisp and smooth it goes down easy. The aftertaste is clean and refreshing.

Clear blonde, minimal head, foam retention rather low. Taste light sour and some malt aroma far in the back. Overall indiferent just to please everybody especially if its served cold in the summer

Can in plane. I used to live next to one of their breweries and haven't had one of their beers since. That smell still haunts me... Anyway, this is macro lager perfection: very light aroma and taste, absolutely nothing stands out in any way. Light bodied and average carbonation. It's hard to be offended by it, but nothing to enjoy either.
