I actually like this better than regular Heineken. its cleaner, fresher tasting, more carbonated, and less filling. no metallic or adjuncts really either, just better. still crap though, sudsy white head on yellow liquid. smell of fresh pils malts and generic ale yeast. watery and soft, but not devoid of flavor. malt forward, balancing hops only, a good slammer beer, golf beer, boat beer etc, but with very little redeeming qualities outside of these contexts. good bubbles, refreshing when freezing, and affordable enough. it has a role, and its better than the other light beers, especially the imports. I can get behind this a little bit, also seems to be handled better than the regular, which eliminated the skunky odor and taste I associate with the parent beer here.

Pours a small fizzy head with low retention that recedes to leaves just a bit of lacing. Beer is a very pale golden straw color and extremely clear. Smells of bread, straw, a little grassy, with a bit of fruitiness as well.

Taste is similar to other light lagers but does have a bit of fruitiness that helps it stand out, also has a hint of earthiness. Mouthfeel is very light with high carbonation, what you would expect.

A: Pours a light straw color with a fair head that fades with no real lacing.
