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.

We did a proper blind test in Tampere Finland 26.7. with numbered glasses and notes, no commentary allowed, the whole works, with 11 common supermarket beers available in Finland. Of the 5 testers 3 were women and 2 guys, medium age some 50 years.
Heineken lost by a clear margin (22 points vs. second worst 25 points, winner 41 points). Very big surprise to everybody considering the brand. 4 people commented on the very weak taste. Good Lord it tastes like water! So if you think you like this beer I strongly recommend a blind test.
And the winner? You are all going to laugh at us but it was Lidl’s “Gourmet”. 4 testers rated it as the best and one as 2nd best.

Very average, but perfectly marketed beer! Always funny to see the "hip and famous" drinking this pilserer while most Dutch people would only drink it if there was really nothing left in the fridge!

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can from a supermarket in Copenhagen, DK. Pours pale yellow with white head. Not much aroma, taste is sweet, pretty neutral and watery to the palate despite the medium high carbonation.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. Pours golden yellow, moderately sweet, soft on palette, a touch of lightstruck cat piss notes. Crisp and clean. Clearly trying to replicate a pilsen lager. Have drunk so much of this in my youth, and tasting it now it’s genuinely hard to understand why.
