I am a big fan of this beer. I have never really liked Heineken too much. A little too many hops and skunky taste for me. However, Heineken Light has that great smoothness and mouthfeel of Heineken, without the skunk taste. I definitely hitthis drink up at any Heineken event from now on.

Appearance - Pours a very crisp looking clear golden color with a centimeter thick head that dissipates quickly leaving a thin, but nice lacing.
Smell - Has a pleasantly strong skunky aroma that pretty much dominates everything else. Grains and bread are the only other detectable aromas.
Taste - Not as skunky as the aroma but it's still good. Fairly sweet with a slight corn flavor, plus grains and bread. It has minimal bitterness from the hops.
Mouthfeel - Light bodied with high carbonation.. Very crisp
Overall - Very easy to drink on. Would be great for the summer.

After reading the previous reviews on this beer it's obvious to me how many rookie beer drinkers we have registered here. This beer is obviously a EUROPEAN LIGHT beer. Unlike most of the fake mass produced American beers with light on the label and 4-5% Alc. European beers are also light on alcohol. This one is perfect for what it is brewed for. Not everyone is an alky that drinks to get drunk. I love this beer as I can drink several and enjoy them without waking up dying with a hangover. If your out to get drunk then by all means this is not your beer. If your looking for a great tasting easy to drink light beer that won't bloat you or scramble your brain, then this is the beer. I love it and I've drank more beers in more countries than the average American. I've also drank more beer than some small countries. Rather than read some punks review how about try it yourself and rate it honestly for what it is and not what you want it to be. Word!

Thick head that sticks around pretty well. After dissipating it leaves behind no real lacing. Clear pale yellow body with light carbonation.
Hops. The hop aroma is surprisingly pronounced. It smells like Cascade hops. Super faint malt smell is also there if you search for it.
Hops. Water. A little bit of malt. Very clean. Heineken Light has a stronger hop presence than regular Heineken. Regular Heineken has a pronounced malt flavor with a very mild dry bitter hop finish. Heineken Light is watery and very light on the malt flavor. To compensate it tastes like they actually upped the hops in Heineken Light, and the hop profile is different. The hops in Heineken Light are more floral in character. They are not very bitter. Tastes like Cascade hops. The finish is not as dry. This is a very watery beer with a surprisingly pleasant mild floral hop character.
Very light and watery.
For the style this beer is very good. It is watery, but what do you expect for 99 calories and 3.2% alcohol? This is a light style lager. If you want a stout or IPA then drink that instead. If you want a low abv light lager then this is pretty nice. I could drink this all day when fishing out in the hot sun. If you can get past the wateriness it is a good beer.

This is one of the few light beers that I will actually drink. The beer is very very clear in color, almost colorless. The Smell is light and sweet, there is practically zero head when I poured into a glass. It is however very refreshing and great for social getherings. Serve well chilled, as the colder this ber is, the better it is.
