UPDATED: NOV 6, 2009 Bottled. Well, it was being served at a reception so it was free, which is about the right price. Yes, it does skunk up in the green bottle, doesn’t it. Pours a very thin head that’s gone immediately. There’s a noticeable touch of maltiness at least. No hops. Hard to believe, but this was still better than the 3 Horses I had a few weeks before.<hr>Rating from draft, 9/10/05.Okay, I found a bar that was serving Heinie from InBev’s "PerfectDraft" system, using those 5 l minikegs, with a nice Belle-Epoque steel tap handle. Thinks, "a chance to fairly review an unskunked Heieken." So I ordered a draft in an appropriate .3 l tulip glass. What do I get?
A slightly deeper gold lager color than I expected. A frothy head that thins quickly. But I still can’t find anything resembling a "taste." Almost a total lack of malts and a very slight bitter "tone" instead of bitter"ness." Nothing "off" about it, but also nothing that makes me want another. True "barley pop." No reason to change my rating.

0.4l bottle. King of euro-lagers :). Malty aroma. Pale yellow colour with medium white head. Malty taste, bitter and sour. Watery body with high carbonation and grassy and bittery finish. Not a totaly bad beer, but far, far away from a good.

Znane, nawet niezle piwko. Smakiem porownywalne z lidlowym piwem tylko nie traci gazu tak szybko. Zimne polecam.

Bouteille 33 cl - couleur blonde, mousse blanche peu persistante, odeur sur le malt, goût assez fade sur le houblon, la classique des classiques des bières à soif

0,5l can. Clear very pale yellow colour with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma: grassy, skunky, booze. Taste: Terrible. Very watery and has an artifical string medicine like tone. Very light body with medium carbonation. Short medicine like finish. Worst beer...

Quite a popular beer, also worldwide, but I don’t like it that much at all .

For me, not a terrible euro lager. It’s best qualities are that it is somewhat crisp and refreshing under the right circumstances.(hot summer) However, it is mostly bland; not much aroma(some malt) mostly watery taste with a hint of hops. That’s about it.

Classic lager will known around the world. Cheap as chips in Thailand. Fruity taste which does get sickly after a few, served classically with a large head.
