Slightly sweet and dense, no acidity, no significant bitter- nor graininess. A noticeable aroma of alcohol.

Cerveja mundialmente padronizada, a gente nunca erra quando pede uma, sempre saborosa para o estilo, amargor presente e agradável, leve e refescante, cerveja pra toda hora, daquelas que deveríamos lotar a geladeira para consumo diário.

It is golden in color with moderate carbonation and a good, thick head. This beer has a hoppy aroma. Crisp taste.

It’s a really nice fresh beer for the summer. Maybe not the best quality for the real beer lovers, but I like it!

There it is, my nemesis. I grew up with this. Much attention put in the aesthetics of the beer; immaculate clarity, perfect golden and a snow-white head. Taste and aroma not so much. Some malts, some bitter. No hops definable. Export bottles have been the skunk-sensitive green bottles for years, but atleast in the Netherlands we were treated with brown bottles up untill a month or so ago. New green ’Star’ bottle is a skunk bottle as well. If properly chilled, it can be very refreshing and drinkable yet only if the bottle hasn’t gone bad. Avoid cans at all cost

An excellent pale lager perfect for any occasion, with a crisp taste and a light aroma. Attractive pale appearance, nice bottle and easily poured with a white head. A fairly generic beer to some but among the best readily available european lagers in my opinion.

It's beer. What more is there to say? There's alcohol in it, although not much. It's sort of beer-like. Not gross.

Well, always drunk heineken cause i didnt knew better.... taste and aroma are ok with a kind bitterness. Although nothing special. Good beer for drinking at high speed :)The marketing of the brand is 1000 times better then the beer is.. Its probably the best known export product of my country (the netherlands) but still i would prefer Hertog jan as my favourite dutch beer :)
