If its 100% barley, why does it taste like corn? If Stella Artois is the Bud of Belgium, this one is the Bud of Europe. Once considered a super-premium import here, it now ranks much lower thanks to our rising sophistication. Boring, bland and uninspired.

A safe bet lager that can be a welcome sight if confronted with no 'proper' beer and a row of uninspiring looking tap heads in a dark and dinghy late night establishment. It is actually pretty refreshing, and definitely a notch up from most of the other common pub lager staples.

Another mass produced lager, the kind of drink you have with a few mates if you know your going to be in the pub a good while. Not too intoxicating and rather refreshing

I'ts just an ok beer. Not remarkable. This is slighty better than mass produced largers. The taste is kinda refreshing.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very light flavour, okay for a light cheap beer, but unfortunately - it's not that cheap. Average white head fully diminishes leaving no lacing. Very soft and watery, has a weak start, and an even weaker finish. Better than some other yellow beers, but there are better choices out there.

A very average beer. The flavor is weak, it reminds me of cornbread after a while.

Better than most of the mass produced beers. However, I still don't feel it deserves the accolades it receives from most fellow collegians. Must be consumed immediately upon purchase because it skunks by the next day; thin mouthfeel is only helped by the decent flavor. Strictly average

Pale yellow fizzy lager. Not much aroma. Smooth mild lager taste with just barely a hint of hops. Better than Michelob (i.e., a "premium" American lager

Too bad more Americans can't taste Heineken on tap in Holland or Belgium. It is a far better beer overthere than the bottled stuff we have. As for the tasting, Yes, Iv'e had some that have been skunky due to age, but my last one was fine. The aroma had some hoppiness and woody smell to it but didn't do much for me. The taste, well it's a massed produced lager with mild sweetness and just enough fizz to let you know that it's a beer. In bottle, a very average brew and something I would only drink if the other choice was Bud.

I really enjoy this beer. For being a mass produced product it's very flavorful, pours a nice head, and smells pretty good. Clear tasty lager. Thumbs up
