Whatís the big deal??? Reminds me of road kill on the transcanada highway. (OK a little to harsh on the beer perhaps but really what is the big deal)

Great taste, definitely worth the money.

NOt that bad for a pilsner, but thatís not saying much. Better than fizzy yellow American beer. Johnny Mac drinks it though, just a thought. Drinkable.

Aurelius (4634) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2002
Yeasty aroma with a wee striped varmint hiding in there. Medium-light hopping, crackery, a distinctive lager yeast strain. A somehow puffy palate -- light and mouthy.

Not too bad for a macro-import. Given the choice between this and BudMillCoors I would go for this every time. Great ads!

Better than American macrobrews, but not by much. I agree with other posters this is probably nothing more than a reliable ífall backí beer at your local convenience store, but skunkiness remains a persistent problem thanks to the green bottle.

Itís not a bad beer, but i think itís overvalorated.

One of my favorite imports that is consistently good. I have a feeling that Heinekenís ratings suffer a bit due to its popularity among non-beer enthusiasts, but thereís really nothing wrong with it. Distinct, mildly-bitter flavor and pleasant aftertaste never let you down. The only thing really bad about a Heineken is that it has a tendency to run you over twice the morning after.

Seems like the European trying to imitate the Americans for some reason. Light, little texture, a little flavor, and way to expensive. Still better then most of the Big American Crap

Why pay so much for a shitty beer that has preservatives and added chemicals. I cant understand why this beer is so over-hyped (not on the site but by average beer drinkers in general.) Nothing is good about this beer, but it is not the worst Iíve tried. At least the commercials are funny.
