One of those highly commercialized euro macro lagers, which is why itís 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 isnít a beer Iím ever going to buy, but if itís free at a gathering, I would have no problem drinking this beer, but itís definitely a low end beer, especially by European standards, but compared to most American macro lagers, such as Bud, Miller, or Coors itís much better.

Der einzige Grund ein Heineken zu trinken ist entweder wenn Holland Fussball spielt oder wenn es gratis angeboten wird. Und selbst dann, stellt sich die Frage ob man es sich antun will. Heller als Wasser. Wasser ist auch das erste was man schmeckt gefolgt von Hopfennoten sowie ein sehr gute verstecktes StŁckchen Malz. Passt gut zu warmen Tagen oder fŁr Kater aller Art.

Nothing special at all but not the worst beer Iíve had. Yeast Harry like qualities in aroma and taste. Light bitterness. Decently refreshing palate. Drinkable but not preferred.

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.

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 (576) - 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.
