Can. Clear pale yellow body, medium to small head with average retention, no lacing. Aroma of grains, corn, wet cardboard, some herbs and rice. Taste of grains, sugary malt, mineral water and some metallic notes. On the sweet side.

Pale Lager Beer (Premium American Lager) 5% teor alcoólico Sua aparência é de um amarelo bem claro e limpo, quase transparente, com uma espuma branca e em pouca quantidade, o que representa um belo apelo visual O seu sabor é bastante suave e refrescante, sendo que o processo de carbonatação ao qual esse tipo de cerveja é submetida, bem como sua armazenagem em baixíssimas temperaturas, contribuem para essa maravilhosa impressão ao paladar. De uma forma geral, o sabor dos ingredientes utilizados em sua composição passa desapercebido quando a cerveja é consumida, deixando um amargor próximo do imperceptível após o último gole. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Классический вкус среднего лагера. Есть небольшая горчинка. Если у тебя нет вкуса то это пиво самое то для тебя.

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.
