2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

Copenhagen 22/8 2014. 33 cl can. Pours light yellow with small white head which subsides instantly. Anonymous slightly malty and salty aroma. Prickly mouthfeel. Taste like it smells - not much. Bitter aftertaste. Not much else. Rather boring.

Pours pale yellow with no real head to speak of. The nose is weak and consists mainly of earthy and slightly grassy hop notes. The taste is watery, but grain notes followed by grass notes is perceivable. The texture is watery as well and the carbonation is moderate. There’s nothing much to say about this beer, really.

Another one of my first foreign beer experiences. Typical mass-produced/marketed pale lager. Not much taste, hops or malt. Astringent on the palate. Undrinkable at this point.

It´s like drink water. Easy to drink, but it doesn´t have any taste at all.

Conditionally drinkable when very cold. Heineken has a global recognition, but this particular product seems to be poor even for a mass market.

Draft in Amsterdam. I’ve had this plenty before but before I started rating. Pours straw coloured witg a thick, foamy head. Aroma of sweet hay and a hint of acetone. A smooth lager, not much fizz which is good. Some pears initially and then a stale acohol kind of bitterness. I’m not a lager man but this is quite pleasant

Czasem kupuję w małej puszce 330ml bo można nim popić posiłek, zielona butelka to zło.

Beer without any interest, just made for people who wants to drink something fresh or for parties

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very pale gold, clear.
Subdued but pleasant yeasty nose, undoubtly skunked.
Very light body and flavor but mouthfeel not watery. Good balance and length.
More sweetness than bitterness, less acidity but not without it.
Predominantly yeasty but also malty.
Good quenching drink, I don't mind the skunkiness in a beer or coffee but the animal is a different thing.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow. With foam with cleanser aspect. Discretely fruity aroma. Taste rather sweet. Mild body, not very persistent. In despite of being in the roughly every macro beers, this in particular is clean and reasonably equilibrated.
