Trochę mokrego zboża, ale ogólnie to bardzo pusto z delikatną goryczką. Na dodatek większa ilość drażni gardło. Słabe.

can't expect too much out of mass produced beer when there are too many flavour dominating products on the same shelf. light aroma of barley, malt, and little bit of something else i can't word out. lots of carbonation... or just slightly more than what i had expected. feint foam retention; expected due to the carbonation. typical beer flavor profile in the light to medium range. if in need, it does it's job of a beer but if expecting something particular, this isn't the one to reach for. still, it deserved an average or slight below average as quality and character of beers have been increasingly better and pronounced past decade. i expect i'll drink a bottle once a year as there are too many better beers out there at similar price point.

Pas d'odeur pas de gout, elle étanche la soif et c'est pas la pire des lagers industrielles.

Lager normal y corriente, nada de aroma y sin sabor final seco. No deja espuma.

It puzzles me since the day I can think about beer, how a beer weak in taste like Heineken, could become one of the world's best selling beer. Easy to drink, when served icecold, ok. And a plus on the best marketing.

they say that this recipe stays the same around the world, but i have to a disagree. there is a noticable difference in bottled heineken in different countries, and also on draught. for instance, UK draught pumps of heineken i will avoid like the plague. in holland, i will drink them dry! well, except for maybe in some of the sh*ttier tourist trap bars in amsterdam where the quality of the beer is not so good, but i wouldn't really go there anyway so that is a moot point haha - once again i'm rambling! tl;dr - once done right, heineken is one of the best mass-market lagers, it is just a shame that the consistency is so bad.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2017 since I live in asia, most of us just drink lager and this lager is the most favourite beer in my life so far

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2017 Thin white head on top of a clear hello gold body. The smell makes me think this beer is skunked. It tastes of sweet cigarette ash. I'm certain it's skunked, will try again later.

Home. 30 cl bottle. BB 11 sep 2017. This is a bottle of Heineken Extra Vers. A little stupid of RateBeer too say that this is an alias. Their is a reasonable difference between this beer and standard Pilsener of Heineken. The aroma is a little malty, but this disappears fast for a nice fruity smell of apple and banana. Good pils taste with somewhat fruity like a normal pilsener of Heineken. Somewhat bitter in the after tast. The standard pilsener less fruity and has a normal bitter in the aftertaste.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2017 My favourite mainstream lager. Pours well, nice white white head made up of large bubbles. Head very quickly disappears (when from a can). Appears brilliant gold in colour and crystal clear. Not much to the aroma, freshness, grainy. Taste the grains, the freshness, the light hops. Carries an oversweetness which can be distracting. Somewhat overcarbonated in my opinion. A decent mainstream lager, my go to.
