Regular Heineken isnt great, and this is worse, but it was ordered for me before I could protest. Not much flavor, carbonation, a little bitterness. Certainly unimpressive.

Medium gold with a fizzy white nitrous head. Zero aroma. Also little flavor to speak of ... just a hint of light cereals, maybe a bland apple. Lightly slippery and easy to drink for people who dont care to have much flavor in their beer. Hey, this stuff is hard to make.

Okay, this isnt a good beer. Heineken itself isnt great, and Light beers as a rule are offensive, but for what its worth, this wasnt all bad. It still had that apples and skunk flavor of Heineken, was a little more watery, but was generally close to the original. I cant imagine that Ill ever have another one if theres any choice, but I didnt regret drinking it. Thats gotta be worth something.

A watered down version of regular Heineken. Didnt notice the pungent aroma others speak of, but I was in a smoky bar. Not a lot of flavor, but what was there was a little skunky. Seems like a waste.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2006 Had this one bottled in DeKalb, Illinois. This wasnt terrible, especially for Heineken. Light, crisp and fairly flavorful with a nice balance of hops and grains, nose of sour apples and yeast. There is no good light beer and Heineken hasnt found it yet but this isnt as bad as the percentile indicates. Bottled in Attica, Indiana. Very lightly flavorful. Not terrible, but once again, why bother?

A fairly crappy beer. I dont really know why you would drink it when you could have a real heineken.... who knows?

I was not too fond of this beer. The smell was of rotten yeast, it was very very pungent, which also ruined the flavor. Why does Heineken always come slightly skunked? This beer was forgettable and nothing special even if it did taste decent.

Bottle. Sour old cheese aroma. Light golden yellow with small head. Moderate barley malt flavor - no bitterness - light body. Would have rated it higher if the smell hadnt put me off - really tastes better than most light beers.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2006
nice golden color small white head that faded quickly leaving nothing behind.The aroma was nothing special,still smells cheap and uninteresting.The flavor was cheaper then the regular heinie,it tastes more like the saved a few bucks on ingredients and lightened up the original and marketed it at the same price.Pretty weak brew but all in all it would do on a hot summer day.

Straw-colored. Virtually no flavor. No skunk. Not much like Heineken b/c no bitterness whatsoever. Quite watery and drinkable.
