2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A global brand the equal of Guinness, Bud, or Fosters. The beer doesn't exit me much. Other it purhaps come at some expense to the taste and flavour, its purhaps one of the most consistent performes on the world tour.

It is slightly better than the average macro. I was unimpressed with the appearance, although it poured a decent head. The flavor was all right. It was very light, slightly bitter, but not skunky. It did get better as the beer warmed up.

Wouldn't be bad if it didn't have such a bitter aftertaste. It is pretty smooth and nice apperance. But like i said its bittertaste kills this beers chance.

31/3 draught: Highly carbonated, bubbly white head. Clear yellow liquid. Very slight skunky hop aroma. Smooth, though very thin. Slight malt sweetness with astringent bitter taste.

Pretty skunky taste, but has good color and not bad body. Fruity, grassy aroma. Definetely over-hyped, but still not worst you can do.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2005 Ah, one of Europe’s finest exports to the U.S.! Well, no. But as I was thrown back to a period many months ago when I was drinking a lot of international lagers, I was struck by...struck by...aw, hell, this stuff is so bloody boring it isn’t worth additional comment here, except to say that you could do much much worse. // Re0rate with same score. I just had two bottles of it atop the Hotel Washington on 15th Street, which overlooks the Treasury Building, the White House, and the monuments. Great great view. Mediocre beer.

I've never understood what the big deal was with Heineken. It smells to me like horse feed. And it doesn't taste a whole lot better. A cold Heineken tastes about as good as a warm Miller High Life does. And it costs three times as much! Go figure!

UPDATED: APR 2, 2003 Just realized my old rating is gone...strange. Luckily, I have notes. Nasty odor, makes me want to pour into drain before drinking. Think Corona meets ass. No real color to speak of. Head is pale and thin. Flavor is, well, lacking and a little skunky. Not a good beer. Generally speaking, I love the Dutch, but this should be poured back into the fjord.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2003 This is a disgusting beer. It tastes like a mixture of Rolling Rock and piss. We should let the Dutch keep this shit. I don't know why anyone would pay $15.99 for 12 of these.

Beautiful pale gold pour. Brief head. Fresh fruity aroma. Sweet hops and malt balanced which stays the same all the way through. Enjoy it for what it is, a very drinkable light lager.
