12oz can into mug, no BB
Pours a clear gold with a good sized white head that stays around a respectable amount of time. Some carbonation is visible, head dissipates to a ring that lingers until the last couple ounces. Smell is that of lager, with some fruitiness and floral tones and light malt sweetness. The taste is surprisingly malty, though mid-taste has a touch of something not entirely pleasant and a bit musky. There is also a decent amount of light bitterness from the hops. Mouthfeel is light-medium with medium carb but also somewhat watery.
Really not a bad beer at all, for me Heineken is the quintessential lager, and an excellent representation of the pale lager style. There's a good amount of taste going here that I would assume comes from an all grain mash. Prefereable to the American adjunct style for sure. If this stuff sold at regular price for less than a buck a can/bottle then it would make an excellent fridge stocker.

I don't like when people give Heineken a bad rap and continue to promote other lagers full of garbage preservatives and additives but everyone is entitled to their opinion that's what reviews are for. Not the best GMO free beer but its good and has good availability. I would choose Amstel over it but I enjoy it. I like its fizz. Smell isn't great but it really doesn't taste like it smells. Good for any occasion really. But once the temp raises its awful.
