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.

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.

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.

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 !

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.

Typowy koncerniak, słodowy, słodkawy i nijaki z mokrym kartonem w aromacie. Skunksa o dziwo brak. Wysycenie bardzo wysokie.

Clear straw color, medium and short head. Light malt aroma. Balanced sweet and bitter. Not too light, not too thin. Very nice for after sports.

Well, it is piss yellow with quickly dissapearing head. Malts is aroma and taste, bit very watery. On the plus side, there are no unpleassant off flavours.
