Ahh...this one takes me back to the days when I was 17 and drinking Heineken meant drinking "the good stuff". I wonder if they still put this in the keg cans. They were awesome.
The appearance is a bit lacking I must say. Being the first time I've actually bothered to pour this into a glass, I must say I'm not impressed. Pale orangeish yellow, no head no lacing.
The aroma is a bit sweeter than your average pilsner but similar. Grain and honey with a bit of grass clippings and something a bit artificial underneath it all.
Flavor and mouthfeel are where Heineken shines. Flavor is sweet and herbal. Dry finish with a nice hop bite. Crispier than fried chicken thats been kept under the heat lamps too long. The mouthfeel is wonderful. Very lively carbonation yet smooth and endlesly drinkable. Even though Frank Booth prefers Pabst Blue Ribbon, this one is a winner in my book.

Heineken is the perfect beer! It is great in the bottle but it is even better on tap which I can only find at Hooters in New Castle, DE or Hooters in Tropicana Atlantic City anymore. Use to have it at TGI Fridays, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Cowboy Up. James Bond drinks it, enough said!

22 ounce bottle served very cold in a large glass.
A - Pours a pale yellow with a short head that gives way to steady lacing.
S - Some grains and hops.
T - Grains with good hop bitterness.
M - Moderate carbonation and a neutral feel and finish.
O - A typical Euro Lager - nothing great but not bad.
