Aroma involves some alcohol and some hops. Appearance is very light, indicating light body. Taste involves some hops and lager malt, mostly barley, I think. Palate is o.k. The light body is disappointing.

When I was young (I am 50+ now), we used to think that buying or ordering a Heineken was a sign of being a sophisticated beer drinker. It was several steps above what we had in college. Now, after drinking craft beer for 9 months, Heineken just tasted . . . ugh. . . ok, if I have to, but . . .not so good.

Gehbe (121) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 24, 2016
Faint aroma of hops, green apple and light malts. Bland, watery, overcarbonated. Not worth the 80 symbols.

Tjomleif (79) - NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
Clear pale golden, medium size white head, decent lacing. Aroma of grains and grass. Mid-sweet taste, very mild grassy bitterness. Not that much action going on.

kdd230 (19) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2016
Large bottle marked City Edition in Mae Sot, Thailand. Pours a light, clear golden colour with high carbonation. Low head retention. Light to medium body with low malt taste. A distinctly average lager in taste and aroma but it’s refreshing.

Una cerveza normal pero de calidad. No tienen ningún regusto a nada en particular. La típica cerveza de bar nocturno.

Evilman (72) - Taverny, FRANCE - JUL 11, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2016 Not much words needed, as this beer is rather uninteresting but not awful either. Everyone probably know what Heineken is so i?ll not go further. Just okay for casual drinks and hot summer afternoons. PARTIALLY APPROVED BY TAVERNY?S BLACK METAL CREW !

Brix (652) - DENMARK - JUL 10, 2016
Tasted 2016-07-10. Pours very light, golden, clear with small, pearly white head. Low head retention. Watery and clean. Refreshing but boring. No particular off flavours.

Bitek (245) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 2, 2016
Typowy koncerniak, słodowy, słodkawy i nijaki z mokrym kartonem w aromacie. Skunksa o dziwo brak. Wysycenie bardzo wysokie.
