I don't like strong beer, so this beer is kinda strong flavor and strong taste.
Feel like heavy but it is okay.

This is seriously one of the worst beer I have ever had. There are way too many other beers out there to knowingly drink skunked beer.

Well, I drank this beer out of a bottle many times and I didn't experience much skunkiness, even though the bottles have been sitting in the basement for months and the date expired by a few months. This is a good beer, when compared to most of the AAL out there. It's a little too carbonated, though, also, it's overpriced here in the US.

Solid beer. Skunky smell out of the bottle, not so much out of the can. It's a bit pricey in the States, but still a good beer.

Quick review. Not much to say. Skunky euro lager done very well.

All we need to know about this beer is that I once opened one up at a table while at a party with my wife, to which she responded, seriously mind you, that she thought someone nearby had gotten into a skunk.

This is a nice approachable beer that really encourages people to step outside their "classic American comfort beers". It's not bad, but it's not anything out of this world. I recommend it to those who have a gluten sensitivity, I've heard that Heineken is gluten-free? But have never confirmed that.

Nice Amber look and pleasant feel, however I have always found this beer to be a litter bitter

As with Stella, this is one of the first beers that got me in the door to appreciating beer so it will always be one of my favorites. I personally would give it a 4.5 with Stella, however it is much better on tap than in the bottle and there aren't very many places around here that have Heineken on tap.

I've had this beer several times, and it almost always comes skunked. I have no clue why this overpriced crap is so popular. It's the Budweiser of Europe. I have no clue why people here in America think it's in any way a fancy beer.

Smooth, dry, cracker taste. The hops are nice and peppery on the tongue. Excellent anytime beer.

Have not had one of these in years. I can't believe I actually used to drink this stuff. Bland, thin and watery. Won't be buying again.
