Poured from the iconic green bottle. A pale straw color that fizzes and pops with too much carbonation. This classic Euro lager is quite variable depending on age and storage conditions, but at its best yields a doughy sweet carmelized or "cooked" aroma with some musty grape notes and hop spice that round things out a bit. Tastes much the same, with a cooked DMS flavor, some tannic grape skins, some hop bitterness in the chalky dry finish. The classic skunk although this can vary from mellow to rank. A metallic ting and rubber flavors show up if you pay close attention (a reason not to pay close attention). Heineken is an OK beer for what you get, a mass-produced industrial product with some historical cachet. Do not pay exorbitant sums for large quantities of this. Drinkable in quantity when you do not feel like analyzing a beer to death.

In my opinion this is the worst beer on the market today. Or I should say the American Heineken is the worst. Apparently if you get it in Europe it is way better but I have yet to see. It was near clear with a little fiz. The smell was skunky as was the taste with a bad lingering aftertaste. It's one of the most popular beers in America and I just don't understand why.
