Better than other pale lager options, but poor flavor, feel, and smell.

Clear golden color, minimal white head. Lots of malt and sugar. Pretty sweet. Watery, thin body. Clean and crisp.

i'm not much of a fan of skunky beers despite them tasting like marijuana.

Something unpleasant in the taste that I just can't get past.

Might be one of my all time least favorites. Doesn't lack flavor like most beers in this style but it has a flavor that's offensive to me for some reason.

Good beer to substitute Coors Lite, Budweiser, Miller Lite, etc. at a party. Nothing more to it. If I was at the store buying beer to have dinner with, I wouldn't buy Heineken.

Extremely poor. To be completely honest, I prefer light beers such as Miller Lite to this.

Better than bud light. That's the best I can do.

Love the skunk! Great when consumed freezing cold after having done a few hours of yardwork... Prost!

A bit of bitterness and a bit of DMS.

Beer without character. Light, medium taste, nothing special.

Could be worse. You could be stuck drinking Miller Lite or similar. Its a lager and not a bad one on a hot summer day while golfing. Traveling? May be your only option outside of Bud Light. Mass produced lager swill but easy to drink. Hard to catch a buzz on it.

Cheap, decent beer. Heads above bud, coors, etc.

What's worse than a warm Heineken?? Maybe a Corona (pretty much a tie).

Terrible taste, aftertaste, after aftertaste. Just shows you what marketing dollars can do for a company.

Don't waste your money.

Bland, boring, sometimes off characters are very present. This beer is sad.

Handed a 12 oz bottle of this at a local dive bar--probably the best beer they had to offer. No bottled on date. Poured into a frosted pilsner.

L: Pours a crystal clear light straw color with an inch-and-a-half of eggshell head that actually stays for quite a while and leaves moderate cling. Mild visible carbonation.

S: Sour, funky notes in the nose--a bit of cracker malts and pils. Some corn and diacetyl in there, as well.

T: Slightly sour and funky at the front, with those cracker malts underneath. Pils malt notes come through clearer in the middle, along with some grassiness and corn. The close is predominantly corn and the slightest bitter.

F: Light, watery, and just a touch creamy from the carbonation. Finishes quite cleanly.

O: I've had worse adjuncts. This one actually isn't nearly as funky as others that I've tried. It's certainly a beer you can put away easily, but it does leave a lot to be desired.

Can't understand the negative reviews of this beer. Not my favorite but is always in my rotation.
