Appearance: One finger soapy white head atop a translucent straw colored beer.
Aroma: The definition of skunky. Not much to smell on this one.
Taste: It's not as bad as the nose suggests. Definite skunky tastes in there but nothing extremely off-putting. There is a dry bitterness throughout and especially present at the end. There is also a little malt and breadyness in there.
Mouthfeel: Actually surprisingly full-bodied for the style. I was expecting something very thin and watery but it's not half bad in the mouthfeel department. Pretty good level of carbonation (although, I did pour it very aggressively into a glass to help get rid of excess carbonation).
Final Thoughts: This beer wasn't as bad as I expected. In fact, it sort of went way above my expectations. However, I would not seek this beer out in the future. I'm not sure why it is so popular and world renowned (then again why are any macro-lagers so popular?) but it's not the worst beer I've tasted.

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.
