One actually has to taste this fresh from an Amsterdam tap to understand how good this beer is. Drink *cold*!

Remember a few vague moments of decent flavor, but overall ’skunk’ reigned.

A rather light lager that still has a lot of character. One of the best on the market to have with dinner.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2003 Fairly mediocre beer but once in a while you need to be bailed out of busch beer hell. Too many crappy bars and sporting events cary it as their only "upscale" beer. Hey Chevy CHase drinks it any more explaining I need to do. Seriously.. a little better with food, but still the yuppie mass media(yawn) idea of an import.

Sharp taste really cuts through when slightly warm - serve cold!

we’ve all had it, no sense in going on and on about a beer that is just BLAH! not great, yet not horrible.

I am disappointed by this one. Many people sware by this beer, but I found it rather unappealing. It had a rather sharp taste that really didn’t go anywhere. In fact, I dumped the last bit so I could leave the casino I was at.

Not a huge beer, but a consistently fine one. As industrially uniform as Bass in bottles - in 35 years, I have never had two bottles of Heineken that tasted the least bit different. Even better on draft, but unfortunately for me, it’s one of several beers (most of them favorites) that I cannot drink on draft because it gives me a splitting headache. It is excellent with food. Those who call it ’skunky’ have had WAY too much Bud Light and MGD in their time. If you eat a half-pound of marshmallow bunnies and then have a swig of lemonade, the lemonade tastes ’sour’, too.

Served cold this is the perfect summer lager

One of my favorites. Gets the job done faster than most beers. The price sucks, but good beer costs money.
