The beer poured a clear, more so golden than straw color with a frothy, thick white head that retained fairly well.
It smelled like regular Heineken (pale malts, light hops, etc.), but was very skunky and off-putting. Although the aroma was very light, there was a nose full of stale/skunked malts and water. It was almost sickening.
For the taste, it was almost unbearable. It tasted much like the aroma- skunked malts and stale hops with carbonated water.
I hope that keg was old, because if it was fresh, then may God have mercy on the brewers who made this garbage. I believe this is the first beer I've ever had that I simply could not finish nor find anything positive about.
Serving type: nitro-tap

12 oz can.
Pour is light amber; excellent clarity; Good head and decent lacing; coarse carbonation.
Aroma: light sweet malts and spicy hops in good balance.
Flavor: very mild, with only a faint hop bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.
Feel: very light bodied but about as expected given the style and carbonation level.
O: light ... very light, but not otherwise flawed and not bad with a meal. Note, bottled Heineken in the US is oftem spoiled so can are recommended.
Serving type: can
