i really dont think this beer needs any more reviews. what can i say that hasnt been said in one of the nearly 400 previous evaluations? how 'bout, i like the green can with the black and white label (i bet somebody has said that!)
looks very average, pale golden, moderately fizzy, big head sticks around for a minute.
smells faint. loses some points for not having much to sniff. what i can pick up is normal pale lager beer scent.
tastes better than its overall score would lead you to believe. its really not bad, this beats bud and miller in every category, although thats not saying much. it's light and inoffensive, not great but not disgusting.
i give heinney extra points because i think it is a good beer for this category, drinkable.

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.

From what I see people here give really negative reviews for this beer. I don't know, maybe worse batch? In my humble opinion - this is basically the best "quick" lager beer you can get on the market. Wanna have a quick light beer? This is the perfect choice. I'll choose it over any other lager for a casual talk with friends. The taste is really good (cooled down), it doesn't smell terribly BAD and has an okay color.
