In all fairness, a decent continental lager. Similar to St. Pauli's Girl except not as good. Now the drawbacks - Heineken has a terrible head, is overcarbonated and is generally unattractive in appearance. It's horribly overpriced and overhyped as well. If you have money to burn on a mass-manufactured beer, buy Guinness. It's truly good instead of just decent.

Bland lager. It is possible to enjoy it if it's cold and it's accompanied with lots of sunshine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

50cl can / 33cl bottle - simple pale lager. Taste varies from country to country. This is the last resort beer - if everything from local market fails, this is possibly still be drinkable. Had not purchased it for over a year. Now reminded myself the taste, and probably will not purchase it for another one.

Floral, floral, grass, citrus, clove. Anonymous, but surprisingly fresh. A pleasant experience, despite being slightly dull.

ARH (296) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2014
12oz bottle. The characteristic skunkiness is most prevalent on the nose, with some light caramel and wheat underneath it. It’s a clear, pale yellow beer with a foamy white head that ends up being a medium-thin ring that leaves some lace. The taste is a medium high bitter, with a light sweetness packed into a medium-light body. The oily texture has a light, bubbly carbonation.The finish is caramel and wheat/grass and it has a cloying caramel syrup aftertaste.

Generic but not awful. Pours a decent golden color, awful thin fizzy head that disappears faster than a black guy when he gets told he’s the father (jk!). Aroma of straw and hay, tastes like it too. A decent pale wheat beer but absolutely unoriginal and generic.

Can to modified pilsner glass; I’ve had Heinken, on & off for years and it’s always had this skunkiness from my 1st encounter to today’s; tap; bottle; can; keg. For me, the skunkiness is the predominant feature.

This was on board the Liberty. It had an odd whiff of skunk with other grasses the taste was average.
