Heineken has to be the most over-rated beer of all time. Itís a drinkable lager - not much else going on.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2015 In Holland Heineken is thought to be one of the worst pilseners. Probably because most american people (not you guys :-)) tend to say Heineken is the best. But after all those years of drinking Heineken, i think itís one of the better actually. It smells better than the average pilsener. More spicy. When i get the smell of Heineken, i get all those memories of when i was young. I know iím still young, but i mean the times i legally wasnít allowed to drink alcohol. Or, well, in Holland age is 16 to buy beer. So my rate is definitely influenced by those memories. But hey! Everybody knows Heineken, so i donít have to tell ya what it tastes like!

pours clear yellow, very little head. slightly bready aroma. a bit more fruity flavour in the malts than most of this style, but not enough to make a big difference. light. boring. I laugh at the ones who pay premium import prices for this. the sad thing is a lot of them think itís a great beer. suckers.

Not as bad as some would have you believe. If you are at a club and it is this or AB take this.

Very skunky aroma, I could smell it two feet from the bottle. Has a nice, clear golden color, but the head rapidly dissipates. Really hard to detect any hops, but it does have a very slight maltiness. Dry finish with hardly any real flavor to speak of. Boring and a waste of time.

Watery, drinkable, bland, flavorless, overrated in public. Not the worst beer out there, though - definitely beats all the big U.S. water-beers.

Pretty smooth beer with little or no aftertaste. Should not be considered a premium beer, but definitely more drinkable than your run of the mill American Lagers.

Bottle. Straw gold low head and condition. Low head and condition. Low aromas of malt and hop, forgetable body and slight, dry aftertaste.
