Well this is the stereotypical Euro-macro-lager, and IMHO probably the least enjoyable of the Becks/ Stella Artois/ Peroni/ Sagres pale lager variety. Aroma was strawish or grassy with some sweetness, but mostly bland. Average pale gold color with some head and lacing. The taste struck me as artificially sweet with just maybe a hint of hops. It did have something of a bitter finish that was refreshing, but then left behind an unpleasant straw aftertaste. I usually am more open to European macros over American macros, but there isnt much that makes drinking this beer worthwhile. But if youre relying on brand name instead of taste - as the late Freddie Heineken once said "life is all about advertising" - what can you expect from such a beer?

Pale clear yellow with quickly disolving white head. Aroma of ripe apples. Cant sense much else except maybe a little hayish hop aroma. The taste is light sweet with notes of apples and pears. Very light bitterness. Not much flavor.

Despite being an over produced beer, the skunky aroma has an odd appeal to me. Tastes better than most domestic macroproduced beers

Another perfect example of an overhyped and overpriced imported brew. Clean gold color with a super fizzy white head. Lightly sweet malt on the nose. Mild spicy hops but not much going for it other than being a slightly more complex version of Rolling Rock.

importante entender o conceito de cervejas desse tipo. Dentro das cervejas de grande circulao, principalmente aquelas que se prope a serem variaes da Pilsner tcheca, a Heineken tem excelncia. Sim, falta caramelo. Sim, falta notas do Saaz. Mas a marca mundial que melhor atende aos anseios dos apreciadores de cerveja.

This is my favorite beer. This amazes me since I am a hops lover. I never thought I could get used to the skunk aroma, but then again I enjoy many appetites. I absolutely always have to have a twelve pack in my house. If you could just ignore the skunk smell (don't smell it anymore) then go for it!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Its as plain as you can get. The only thing plainer is Carling I think. Fizzy. No real aroma, No real taste, a hint of water. The bubbles sting your palate. Its bog standard mass produced lager for the masses.

Golden finish, smell is sweet and even better when air-rated, can taste hops and vanilla. After taste is refreshing with a sour dough finish. A good larger to drink on a hot day in Thailand. (If you enjoy the beer drink it.You like what you like)
