Good casual beer. Almost as good as Corona. Great for parties and the bar.

It’s pretty average, goes down easy but nothing at all special about it. They are obviously marketing to wanna-be beer snobs. Pretty weak stuff.

I think it’s a bit overrated. I tend to get skunky bottles which brings its rating down too. Not bad. But could be a lot better.

This is really one of the most over-rated beers out there.

Not sure what the fuss is all about. i guess it has something to do with advertising. I was not at all impressed by this - it is easy to drink but there are no distinguishing characteristics or subtleties that are the mark of a good beer

Had this here and in the Netherlands. Much better in Europe, this beer first introduced me to skunky.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 <Rating now> Standard Eurolager. <Rating when I was 18>This is nothing more or nothing less than a smooth, easy-drinking lager. It is much smoother than most Australian lagers which makes it my drink of choice when I’m going for a refreshing beer. It is reasonably priced here aswell, although still significantly more expensive than the local produce.

This stuff is no good, Ive never had a real Heineken, but Im sure it tastes better than the American version. You need Pizza or wings to chase the stuff for god’s sake!

The bottle I drank last night had a bitter skunky taste. Dennis Hopper was right, fuck this shit!! Pabst Blue Ribbon, man! Strangely enough, one of my best beer experiences was Heineken on tap at a pizzera next to Piazza San Marco in Venice. The fact that Heineken sells good beer in Europe and crap in the U.S. must be the result of some market research that shows Americans prefer shitty beer.
