Along with Carlsberg and Budweiser, this is one of the worlds most famous and sold pilsner/lagers. Itís the best out of the three, and the most clean tasting, reminiscent of northern german pilsener. Iíd probably still go for Tuborg Green instead, but itís a decent drink and a good thirsquencher on a summer day. Draught version preferable. Fun note: When me and my friends started drinking beer at age 14 (yeah, that IS the norm in Denmark) or so, we all thought this was the greatest drink in the world, and thought it was all exotic. Turned out we were just ignorant

Melhor cerveja pilsen de "massa" vendida no Brasil. Cerveja honesta de puro malte. Sempre na geladeira.

Classica lager commerciale-spazzatura. Non sa di niente, occorre dire altro?

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma of malt and yeast. Taste is medium bitter. Ordinary beer. Good if you are thirsty.

Vestlake (250) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 20, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Best choice at a trade show. Well below the typical euro pale lager standards. Almost had a sweetish taste to it. It will do the trick if youíre forced into it.

CraftBeerNick (1403) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2015
Tap in Amsterdam, 19th November 15. Pours like a lager, nice head. Aroma is slight metallic, malt. Taste is OK actually for a refreshment, it has reasonable bite, I have had worse

Zlotta (569) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2015
0.25 l on tap at Dickyís, Amsterdam. Clear, pale golden yellow with a medium large, creamy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish-malty aroma of hay and sweet malts. Sweetish-malty taste of hay and sweet malts, followed by a short, just slightly bitter finish. Thin body, minimally watery mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Quite drinkable, no complains.

Can from our ferry to Harwich to Hoek of Holland, Consumed at home Sunday 15th November 2015 (I needed some lager to cook with, why specifically lager I donít know but I did, so I have taken the opportunity to rate this) Light gold in colour, a bit pissy I guess, Very little to get excited or upset about sweet, burpy, very average macro tosh, had better had worse.

Its Heineken what else can I say. If nothing else it gives me memories of times before craft beer was prevalent.
