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

Smells of hay, bread, leaves - in short of cheap hops. Very little bitterness, short bitter aftertaste. Medium body. It’s a beer you can buy about anywhere, it’s not expensive, it’s been around for ages. A true classic, even if it doesn’t taste so good.

330ml bottle from the only cafe. Transparent straw body with very thin white head. Bready cereal aromas, nice carbonation for the style. Very sessionable and light bodied.

Obfuscate (99) - Minneapolis, - DEC 16, 2014
Slight green apple like nose, otherwise not too much. Looks like a standard pale lager in the glass. I will give Heineken credit for not using adjuncts in the beer. Taste isn’t as offensive in the aftertaste as a Stella Artois. Fun to try this beer after many years but unless it’s a hot sunny day and this is your best option there are many better beers. Not terrible almost all beers are decent but meh compared to others.

La Heineken, tu la bois pas pour ses qualités gustatives. Parce que ce n’est pas une grande bière. Elle est bien pâle, ça sent, parfois la mouffette, parfois le maïs, parfois le malt et parfois les herbes. Un goût semblable à bien d’autre bière du genre. Disons que ça fait plus distingué que de boire une M***** ou bien une B** (1348-141214)

Pils, niet bijzonder, wel fris wanneer koud geschonken in de zomer, drinkt lekker weg tijdens een avondje uit met je maten.

Bottle 500 ml. Skunky aroma, slight malts. Clear golden colour, medium-weak head. No bitterness, extremely carbonated. Considering the relatively high price, it is not even worth thinking about.

Drank many since being introduced to Heineken during high school by SN exchange student from the Netherlands 40 years ago. Good when compared to basic BMC’s, it is just another so-so pale lager.

Clear yellow collor beer wih a small white head, medium carbonation. Taste is watery, a small bitter and a little sweet. Not a nice beer
