In the great realm of beers, Heineken isn't even near the tops. But I will say this. If I'm at a bar with no microbrews, 9 out of 10 times I'll order a heineken. Why? Because it's better than bud or any of the other watered down American bigs. I like it as a solid choice. But a couple of notes: This beer smells like ass, unlike it's taste. If the temperature is changed too much with Heineken it will skunk faster and worse than you can ever imagine. And skunked Heineken is probably the worst things in the world.

Another 'premium' lager that is more advertising than anything else. Its a bit on the grassy side. Its better than Bud I guess, but not as much as people seem to think.

DocLock (10081) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2004
I know people that absolutely rave about this beer. I don't get it. To me, it tastes really unbalanced, astringent, and odd. There is some aroma, flavor, and finish to this, but I just don't care for it at all.

When you can find an unskunked one, this lager is pretty good. Very light tasting, good for barbeques or after mowing the lawn. Needs a little more malt character.

Definately one of the best. Its a little pricy, but looks great and has a nice taste. Would definately buy again

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2004
Two 12 oz bottles while waiting for AAA tow truck. Been a couple of years since I had one of these. Dinged for green bottle. Nicely hopped, served cold, this goes down good on a warm afternoon.

Es la cerveza estandar. No esta mal, pero tampoco es una maravilla, eso si la encontraras en cualquier sitio

crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2004
I'd rather have this than a bud or something cheap like that, but still a below average somewhat skunky beer with good advertising. Nothing special about this one.

Has a unique taste to it, it's a the a heineken taste that I have never really seemed to catch on the tongue. Looks guds with a light aroma. It has big following which makes me anjoy it at times.
