330ml, at home @10°C Clear yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is light and watery. Nothing outstanding that would stand out in a blind beer test. Boring, mass produced beer.

Strong distinct aroma of floral hops. Pours a clear yellow with a frothy white head that fades. Crisp dry flavour of hops. Quite high carbonation and a little thin. This is clearly not everyone’s favourite but as a day to day lager it’s definately one of the better ones.

wedgie9 (2004) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Tasted on 10/17/14 from a 16oz can purchased at the gas station. Pours clear pale golden with an average white head that slowly recedes to average, uneven lace. The nose is very light and hard to get much, but there is some dusty, corny hay malt, and just a bit of an herbal undertone. The flavor is a bit more cony sweet with the same dusty herbal note underlying, and a bit of "skunk". The body is light with average carbonation, and a short, sweet corny finish.

Insípida, falta de sabor. No la considero ni cerveza, prefiero pedir un agua que esto sinceramente. De las peores que he probado.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
0.5l can served in an ordinary glass. A: Pours a pale golden yellow color forming a big fluffy aired white head. Medium retention and some lacings left S: Very characteristic Heineken smell of sweet malts and grassy/skunky hops T: As the nose, the characteristic taste of sweet malts, skunky hops and Lager yeasts. End is reasonably bitter M: Very light body and high carbonated level. A refreshing session beer. Aftertaste is citrus hoppy bitterness O: good drinkability. Heineken has somehow, personality. Its smell and taste are a trademark [ BA Review @ 2/26/2010 ]

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2014 Heineken is probably the best known beer of the world, I don?t know why... The taste is watery with a small bitter.

Contrabande provided by MiP. Clear yellow, fluffy white head. Grainy aroma, light hops. Flavour has sweetish cereal, light bitterness. Soft carb and mouthfeel.

It has a stronger aroma that I can not place or put directly into words. Heineken tastes lightly bitter to the tongue with a crisp finish. It is definitely more on the fizzy side of carbonation but its overall texture is quite simplistic and thin.

250ml can at FL330 on KLM Boeing 737. I only drink this beer on-board KLM flight because I have no other choice. In fact, I sometimes choose a cup of water instead. Watery beer flavoured cordial.
