Not much to say that hasnt been said already. Better than other beer choices for the train home after work, but other than that, you wont find me picking up any six packs.

Paid $2 for a 24floz can with "BBD Dec-2017" stamped on the bottom. Heres to mediocrity! It isnt a bad thing, since Heineken in a can (emphasis in a can) is consistently an okay beer. You get golden straw lager with that characteristic wet hay aroma. Euro mass produced lager with a bit more flavor than low calorie beers, but with a similar poundem back character. Must be had cold, otherwise its grainy flavor becomes putrid.

Rubin77 (1487) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 27, 2017
F: snow-white, not big, quick gone. C: light pale gold, clear. A: malt, sweet grass, corn syrup, hint of caramel. T: malty, corny sweet, very decent grassy bitterness, there is nothing interesting, clean taste with weak tones thats all, light body, medium carbonation, 330ml can from AH supermarket in Antwerpen.

Woda i nie wiele więcej. Co prawda bez wad ale nic poza tym. Piło się o wiele gorszę ale rwnież o wiele wiele lepsze.

Served on tap at Heineken bar at AMS. Clear golden colour with a white head. Grain aroma with a solid grain taste. Light body good for quickly drinking this piss coloured rust water. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I find this better than most Pale Lagers because even if there is not too much character, at least its not watery, has a solid malt backbone and a bit of hops. Obviously the beer lives of the brand name, not its taste, but I think most cheap beers are worse.

Po prostu woda. Nieciekawe. Słodowe bez innych nut. Wodnistość niesamowita.

Bright colour with medium carbonation. Not a very big nose and taste is very boring.

Easy to drink lager with no real character. Very light bodied with a dry finish.

Luneylane (102) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - FEB 4, 2017
A bottle from Simplemart down the road, drunk at home: Aroma: grass, lightly sour. Appearance: clear, pale gold. Generous head soon dissipates. Palate: light-bodied, rather, thin, average carbonation. Finish is abrupt, but reassuringly bitter. Taste: lightly bitter. Nothing special, but reliable alternative to Jinpai for the locals.
