A nice looking beer, with a nice head on it. This was my grandfathers favorite beer. Incredibly well marketed, to an incredibly foolish marketplace. Itís very skunky. It sucks

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

KoRoBeNiKi (57) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2015
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.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2015 Bottiglia o spina. Se ho sete, preferisco bere acqua. Lontana dalla mia idea di birra.

SamTheBarrel (574) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2015
330ml can poured into a lager glass. Appearance is clear pale golden with a large frothy off-white head that reduced quickly, leaving a lacing on the glass. Aroma of canned corn and cereal. Flavours of wheat bread, canned corn and a hint of alcohol and processed sugar. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Palate is light bodied, thin texture and average carbonation. Heineken is a standard plain lager, there are better and cheaper lagers available.

Hey, judge me as you want, but I liked it. Yes, it is not the best beer in the whole wide world, but it does its job as it should. Refreshing in the summer, quite bitter aftertaste, it just needs to be really well chilled.

Sub par taste and an unpleasant metallic aftertaste make this famous brand an experience best had online, and not actually tasting it. The Dutch Coors.

Teran (124) - Belgrade, SERBIA - MAY 12, 2015
So famous, but so average. Not much to say about it. Eu lager. light and drinkable. I think they produced this type of beer because of people who could drink more than 5 litres in one evening. I am not one of them. Anyway, very nice crisp white top, I must say one of the best among lager beers.
