UffyBeerReview (10) - miami, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2013
One of those highly commercialized euro macro lagers, which is why it’s obviously popular. Pours light yellow. Nothing spectacular on the aroma, bland. Tastes...skunked perhaps, probably because of the green glass on the bottles. Besides a harsh taste overall, the brew redeems itself by some sweet malt, which makes it easier to drink. Overall, this isn’t a beer I’m ever going to buy, but if it’s free at a gathering, I would have no problem drinking this beer, but it’s definitely a low end beer, especially by European standards, but compared to most American macro lagers, such as Bud, Miller, or Coors it’s much better.

Towey1989 (1751) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2016
Keg at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grain, some bready malts and slight grass. Taste of grain, some bready malts, a hint of cardboard and slight grass. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, slight grassy, bready bitterness in the finish. It’s not a bad lager, a lot maltier and fuller bodied than its Dutch counterparts. Still average though.

datrael (183) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 19, 2016
Aromat lekko trawiasty, nieco słodowy, ogólnie słaby. W smaku dość pustawo, gdzieś tam pojawiają się akcenty słodowe, pod koniec nieco drożdżowe. Ogólnie bardzo wykastrowane piwo, pozbawione jakiegokolwiek charakteru w smaku, zapachu i wyglądzie.

La peculiaritŕ di questa birra č il sapore identico in ogni parte del globo la si assaggi, grazie all’esportazione dei principi chimici dell’acqua che la compongono. Detto ciň, ha toni banali e poco persistenti, dissetante.

Geezer, what happened to Heineken? I remember it being so much better with so much more character and not so soft.

Shuffle (26) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 1, 2016
A világ legjellegtelenebb ízű söre. A dizájn tetszik, de az új 0.4l rejtett áremelés már kevésbé. Adalékanyagmentessége dicséretes.és a reklámjai is tetszenek. A legnagyobb: "Megteremtettük a víz ihatóbb formáját"
