Where I come from, we call this "runemiege". I will not give the literal translation, but it has something to do with a horse and water leaving your body.

This stuff is skunky. I donít know while people think it is SUPPOSED to taste that way.

Ah yes. Heineken. I drink this beer frequently because it serves well with itís nice Dutch Lager flavor and aroma. It is a refreshing alternative to American big brewery beers. Tastes all right. Try Becks too.

It look good in this green bottle but that the only good thing about it. Flavor is too chimical.

This is a good lager. Not as heavy as most lagers and you can tell by the light color.

Good lager. Sort of "McDonalds among beers" (nothing wrong about that) - you can have it about anywhere around the world with a certain quality guaranteed and also have it quite often without risk of getting sick of it. Keep in mind itís not a vintage cherry to sip - it is a mass beer for mass drinking and itís good at it. As ALWAYS - best served cold on tap (eg. in a pub in Amsterdam), never call it skunk after you had just one old bad-treated bottle - no beer is made to survive anything, you know. Also, donít call it overpriced - the prices of beer differ around the world - once I payed $12 for Budvar in London while in Czechia a pint of Budvar, Pilsner Urquell or any other beer costs less than $1 - now should I call such beer generally overpriced?

Lt gold color, large head. Light tasting lager, slightly citrus taste, slightly hoppy, not very malty. A little skunky. Mouthfeel is a little thin, kind of watery. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is neutral. A mass-market beer, nothing special or different. Also, not very fond of the “green bottle beer” taste.

I did not enjoy this beer at all. Why should beer cost so much money.
