"Donít you wish your girlfriend was," ah, screw it. Pale yellow, not too fizzy, decent head. Aroma of wet cardboard. Flavor of rough grain, but light, barest hint of hops on the end. Could be worse. At least as a Light beer this has an excuse for being bad as opposed to regular Heineken.

This bottled brew poured a large sized head of frothy topped foam with finely sized white colored bubbles that left behind a transparent weak straw yellow colored carbonated body and a good lacing. The aroma was very astringent with malt hop notes that smelled green like the bottle! The mouth feel was thin and mildly tingly. The flavor was thin mildly astringent and just generally ugh! No more please!

Well, for an ultra-light, itís my fave. Thatís not saying much, though. Why the hell do these beers have to be so damn bubbly? Would they be better to leave open overnight? Anyhow, it tastes like Heineken without any body. I think itís better than Amstel, but, again, thatís not saying much!

Sampled at Broudy"s Beerfest, Orange Park FL, 6/24/2006. This is a mixed drink.. mix Heiny and seltzer water and you got it. At least it wasnt skunked.

Tastes like corn and wood. Neither of which is good for a beer. Head looks like soap. Not good.

bottle. Come on. This is ludicrous. I donít even know that I should waste my time describing this watery swill, but for some reason I feel compelled to do so. Pours light, fizzy, watery. Yay, thereís the skunk for sure in the stench. Itís really watery, but some beery flavors reminiscent of corn and cardboard come through in the finish. I donít know what else I feel obligated to say.

12oz bottle pours golden with a short white foamy head. Aroma of mostly skunk but a little light grain under it. Flavor is pretty much the same. Palate is watery. Not a big heineken fan to begin with but this light is worse than the high test by a long shot. The good thing about it is it was a freebie at my neighborís house and came with some good conversation!

Bottle. This beer is terrible. Take your regular Heineken, add stale water and moth balls, then shake vigorously. Dip your nutsack in it and ta-da. Instant suckfest. Maybe light beers arenít cut out for me, but this beer was as bad as anything else Iíve tried. Totally skunked.

Bottles: The ígood stuffí at the gas station in rural Texas, so I went ahead and ísplurgedí. Much worse than regular Heine, not something Iíd reccomend and not something I plan on having again.

Hawk ní Dove, the District of Columbia. Two promotional girls in Heineken Light t-shirts tied up were offering this. Itís alright, crisp and all that, but not overpoweringly good. Iíd recommend it for a light beer, though it has crazy ass grassy notes to the flavor.
