3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A golden coloured beer which has a decent white head on first pouring. The aroma and taste are very typical of the style. Floral Saaz hops and a little grassiness. Ok and quite refreshing, but this style really doesn’t set the World alight.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours a very bright clear golden color with a nice white head which looks very nice at first but then fades to a very unappetizing soapy look. Nice hop aroma with more earthy aromas like hay and grass that can be expected from european hops. the taste starts out unremarkable and then finishes with a long malty, bready flavor. More full bodied and flavored than it appears in the glass. A nice refreshing brew that remarkably comes from Heineken, too bad the US doesn’t get their best.
