Another beer without any big flaws but still nothing special to write home about.

Just had one with a seafood buffet for dinner. One of my favorite macro lagers. Crisp not bitter, I like the aroma, what some call skunky, I call herbacious. A good beer.

Heineken neither scores points for aroma nor appearance, but taste is solidly better than most of the American Standards that try to imitate it (that it tries to imitate?).It has a strong initial alcohol mouthfeel, with a mild wheaty aftertaste. Itís better than most of the folks on this site will have you believe, but not by much.

Not a bad beer, but certainly not the greatest out there.

Itís not bad, but it sure ainít good either. It has a rather watery body which makes it refreshing. The taste is somewhat typical to macrobrews. Nothing to cheer about...

Very clear, very skunky, but can be settled upon easily. I never want to drink it, but sometimes Iíll drink it when nothing better is available

Ewwww.... I thought I got a skunked case, but I was wrong after trying it a couple times, itís just that bad.

Itís hard to get over the skunky aroma of Heineken. That being said, if you can get by the aroma, it goes down just fine, with a decent, smooth aftertaste. I find it a little too filling to drink along with meals, but I like it just fine to have when socializing. Letís face it, the dutch canít brew like the Germans, but they do pretty darn good.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2002
Pours a pale yellow íhealthy urineí colour with medium short lasting head. Aromas of faint hops and malt. Light to medium bodied, a tangy start followed by quite a bitter middle and dry bitter finish. (Rated 12/5/02: Mainz, Germany)
