22oz keg can picked up when I stopped for smokes. I have to say the keg can was a great decision on Heinekens part. This was my favorite beer for a looong time before I encountered BA and such. The keg can enables me to actually enjoy one of these from time to time that isnt a skunky piece of shit. I poured this out into a tall pilsner glass. It looks like a good Pale Lager should, crystal clear, straw colored, light carbonation moving through the body. A nice head is produced, doesnt have the best retention or leave any real lace, but no biggie. Let me say again how nice it is to have a Heineken that doesnt smell like skunk-spray, it lets the fact that it does have a bit of character be revealed. The malt on the nose is like buttered sour-dough, spicy green hop aromas are present as well. The flavor comes across a bit sweeter than I remember it being same light buttery-biscuit flavor that I picked up in the nose, little spicy hop in the finish. Its really light, slick, and finishes really clean, I can see the appeal to the less educated crowd. The flavor is a lot lighter than I remember as well, leaves me wanting a little more (even from a Pale Lager). I still stand by the fact that is a decent beer, and Heineken gets its propers for the keg can. An especially good beer for washing down food.

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.
