UPDATED: DEC 10, 2012 Iíve had this both on tap and from the bottle and in most cases itís skunky in the bottle. Tap is alittle better but still isnít an aroma to this beer or much taste. If itís not skunky Iíd take this over most mainstream lagers like bud, coors, etc. Itís not bad.

A watery, unenjoyable tasting beer best left on the shelves. No room in my fridge for this stuff.

Rated to correct a deficiency identified by BlackHaddock, thank you sir! I once worked at a small charity hospital in Saint Lucia, near the southern tip of the island. There was a Heineken brewery on the island, but no one had been able to score a tour. Then one day a guy came into my clinic with a deep gash in his knee. As I was stitching him up, I asked him how it happened, and he said he tripped and fell in the brewery. Do you work in the brewery? I asked. He said, "Oh mon, I dee brewmaster!" Needless to say, we got a tour for the whole hospital staff. At the end of the tour he left us in his office, equipped with a giant walk-in cooler, and said, help yourself, Iím going home for the day. So that was my most memorable taste of Heineken, which seemed less bitter and astringent than other versions. He explained that he tinkered with the hops recipe, and was constantly getting into trouble with headquarters because of it. We also sampled quite a few brews from around the Caribbean, since much on the various islands is contract brewed. They all went down good that day.

Its bitter taste is little less but its aroma and sourness is good but not strong as a pilsener beer

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Appearance: Pale/golden, of course with a small quickly disappearing head.
Aroma: Corn, cereal, a bit of sugar, a bit of wheat, your general lager, but much less watery, no alcohol or barely
Palate: Think, very drinkable but semi-bland, doesnít taste like much.
Overall: Less offensive than other similar Macro-brews as it doesnít have that weird metallic tinge, but then again, youíll pay a whole lot more for this stuff, since itís "imported." Iíd prefer to get something more session-able. More flavor for the same price. Thanks but no thanks.

Iím only going to say that I wish in the USA you could find and get Amstel bier (not Amstel Light). I had it in Aruba many years ago and it is better than Heineken: more thirst quenching, satisfying, and less astringent aftertastes. Heineken is much in the same class as a Bud/Miller/Coors/Molson product even if it is a non-adjunct beer (supposedly). Itís not bad and certainly not the best. It depends on what you want for a beer.
