33 cL can. Pours pale yellow with white head. Aroma is distinct straw and bitter hops. Taste is a again dominated bit bitter hops, but this is only there for the start and doesn’t go into the finish. The bitterness is rather odd somehow. has some wellrounded sweetness into the finish.

A light yellow beer wiht no head. It has a faint aroma of malt. And a watery flavor that end in a slight bitterness. I much rather have a Tuborg - if it must be a lager.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2012 Canned. Pale golden with small white head. Bitter aroma. Pretty waterish beer with hoppy bitter taste. Bitter aftertaste which smoothens out in a soft way. Pretty standard "boring beer". 2 2 4 2 7

Rated to correct a deficiency identified by BlackHaddock, thank you sir! I once worked at a small charity hospital in Saint Lucia, near the southern tip of the island. There was a Heineken brewery on the island, but no one had been able to score a tour. Then one day a guy came into my clinic with a deep gash in his knee. As I was stitching him up, I asked him how it happened, and he said he tripped and fell in the brewery. Do you work in the brewery? I asked. He said, "Oh mon, I dee brewmaster!" Needless to say, we got a tour for the whole hospital staff. At the end of the tour he left us in his office, equipped with a giant walk-in cooler, and said, help yourself, I’m going home for the day. So that was my most memorable taste of Heineken, which seemed less bitter and astringent than other versions. He explained that he tinkered with the hops recipe, and was constantly getting into trouble with headquarters because of it. We also sampled quite a few brews from around the Caribbean, since much on the various islands is contract brewed. They all went down good that day.

Golden coloured. Sweet, rather malty, extremely one dimensional. Not exactly my drink of choice, but I don't mind drinking one if lacking better beers

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 27, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Swedish version brewed by Spendrup’s Brewery. Full golden colour, limited head. Hoppy nose, mild and harmonious yet not very exciting. 081203

(Bottle 33 cl) Thai version brewed by Thai Asia Pacific brewery. Nice hoppy nose. Quite harmonic and balanced lager. But lacks personality. 5/2/5/2/10=2,4 191103

(Bottle 50 cl) Greek version. Pale golden with a small, white head. Fine, flowery, hoppy nose. Malty and just enough hops to add balance. Very uncharacteristic and anonymous - but easily drinkable. 5/3/5/2/10=2,5 110999

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht malzig, getreidig, leicht süß. Geschmack wässrig, leicht malzig getreidig, minimal herb.
