This beer seems to get by merely on itís image. Itís not good, itís not high-class, it just is a better version of budweiser... and not much better at that.

I donít know why they sell some much of this beer in the world. No flavours, awful taste.

This is a beer that is totally different between tap and bottle. On tap and fresh, itís smooth and refreshing, with no bad aftertaste. In the bottle, it has a funky odor and a bad aftertaste. My rating is for the tap and my memories of taking the Heineken Brewery tour in Amsterdam and getting loaded at 10 a.m. with a bunch of wild Australians, while the golden-hair Flems kept pushing more fresh beer our way.

Either you love this beer or hate it. Thatís my observation. I love it. The bitter after taste is excellent. This is one of my favorite beers of ALL time. Unfortunately it is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY over priced, and sometimes itís skunky.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2012 Typical European green bottle lager/pilsner... I actually like these better in cans... Malty and grassy... a little more bite from the hops than you might expect but nothing to get terribly excited about. Refreshing and non-offensive.

Skunky with a fairly crisp refreshing taste. Not my beer of choice, but not bad either. Nice summer brew while in the heat.

Heineken has a skunky smell and taste that just turns me off. The flavor was unremarkable. Itís not the worldís worst beer, but it sure is the worst $13 a 12pack beer. Why anyone drinks this is beyond me. Re-rate: tasted better when not ice cold, but still not a good beer.
