A good standard beer. Decent flavor, but just middle-of-the-road in all categories. I like the special dark a lot more.

decent quality lager, had a few around the world cup and grew to like some of its qualities, it actually has more body than i at first appreciated, but there's no standout quality to this beer, it gets extra marks for sentimental reasons.

Some initial malt sweetness but it just doesn't hide the skunky hop smell and taste. The only time I drink this is when it is the best of the macros a place serves.

The classic lager that I swear is so much better in the Netherlands than anywhere else in the world. the US-import version pours dark yellow with a marshmellowy head. It's got that Heineken-skunk smell that makes me think of green bottles. The flavor si malty and a bit musty. This is an OK beer, but again ... this is the nectar of the gods in Amsterdam.

I don't care for the smell of this one. It's a good looking beer, golden with a white head. Taste is ok but not worth going into detail.

A very watery, skunky beer that epitomizes the mass-produced lager flavor. However, I've had this in the Netherlands and it's much better there than in the States. Still, not much worth talking about.

This beer tastes like absolute piss. I guess im not really a big fan of imports though.

I have a dual opinion on this one: In the UK, whether on draught, or from a bottle or can, this is not great - tasteless and sweaty; however when tried on draught in Rotterdam, this was nice - refreshing, fruity and light. Even with this recent good experience however, Heineken is still a mass produced and bland beer, which should be despised for it's efforts to take over the world.

Super pale beer, no head. Skunky aroma, though once past this, there is some hoppinness not usually found in macro stuff. Taste is pretty non-existent, nothing happening. Skunky finish. Thin body. Really not very good at all. Bottle.

Love the fruity aroma. The flavor is light and refreshing. In no way is it a GREAT beer, but it holds its own, and if the price was competitive it would be even more popular.
