I have tried many Heineken Lagers in my life, whether it was in a plethora of location in the United States or in Amsterdam, and they all have the same taste and charistics.It pours straw yellow clear, with an average soapy head, that sticks around for a short while. It always has had a skunky taste that hides the malt, it does not have a strong edge, and it goes down easy.

Amsterdam, Netherlands March 2007 (on my back to Iraq from seeing my son's birth)

Heineken lager beer 24 oz green bottle $2.29(OH)

24 oz green bottle poured into a stemless white wine glass. no freshness date, just bottling codes on back you will have to look up.

i used to drink this back in the day when i did not know much about beer. all i knew was it was better than the bud and miller my friends were drinking.

pours a pale gold, almost yellow. kind of looks like apples juice in color. a bright white two finger head that don't last long. leaving minimal lacing.

the smell is grassy, doughy, and i can smell some noble hops hiding behind a skunky metallic twang. smells a little sweet and malty.

the taste isn't great, but doesn't deserve all the bad ratings. the taste mirrors the smell. light grassy, doughy, slightly sweet malty taste. followed by a skunky twang, then a noble hop taste and dryness. reminds me of a severly skunked, toned down ST.Pauli Girl.

mouth feel is light, slightly sweet, nothing to special and dry on the finish due to the noble hops.

overall consider these things. its not adjunct, it has noble hops, its the same price as A-B and Miller-Coors adjunct "specialty" beers. yes it is skunky. the green bottles need to be stored very dark. and most beer coolers have florescent lights everywhere, skunking this brew. my palate and taste has grown and i would have to say it is a OK beer. i don't drink it like i used to, but it does bring back old memories. Better than any adjunct brew, but not a solid noble hop brew.
