nephirem (138) - CROATIA - APR 21, 2016
Pours clear pale yellow with very visible carbonation. Small white head. Typical lager smell, slightly bitter on nose. Thin body with regular carbonation. Bittersweet. Slightly oily texture. Aroma of malts, corn, a bit grassy. Short, metallic finish. Overall, boring.

Popoff91 (80) - Oregon, USA - APR 20, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2016 12-ounce bottles. Nasty smell, boring flavor with a little foulness, I don’t know why Heineken is so popular. Not the worst I’ve ever had, but that isn’t saying much.

Turtles (1650) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2016
Bottled. Clear pale golden, medium size white head, decent lacing. Aroma of grains and grass. Mid-sweet taste, very mild grassy bitterness. Not that much action going on.

from a can, but does it matter? I hadn´t drunk Heineken in a loooong time and now I know why. Very pale color, little aroma, less taste. A true triumph of marketing over taste and quality. When I was younger I accepted it as a "quality" beer because it is European, but now I know much, much better. I´m not being snobbish here, it just doesn´t rank well with other "Euro" beers that are mass marketed. Now, on to a better beer, which won´t take much of a search....

Grains, pale golden, white head not persistant, light body, high carbonation, taste of grains, minimum bitter final...good during Soccer, or not.

myxy (16) - Hajdúnánás, - APR 11, 2016
Heineken was the first beer I liked, so there are some kind of sentimentalism in that score. I like its clear golden color, with the good, white foam. It has medium body, with some bitterness.

BeerManiacy (101) - Białystok, POLAND - APR 11, 2016
Piwo diacetylowe. Aromat łagodny, w smaku nienajgorszy. Znikomo czuć chmiel.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2016 Sabor a paladar pronunciado para uma lager. Características muito típicas da Heineker. E o melhor: um ótimo custo-benefício de uma cerveja que tinha tudo para ser 'comum'.

It’s beer, but not very good. Not good at all. Don’t have much to say, or want to. Just filling minimum character limits.
