Actually not on-tap, but out of the mini-keg draught system.
Pours a very clear, very pale golden color. Two finger, short lived head with no lacing on the glass. Actually very fizzy looking, as carbonation is very noticeable in the glass. Aroma is a bit lacking. Not the typical skunk smell from out of the bottle (due to the green bottle letting UV light effect the hop isomers, creating a skunky flavor - I hear they now purposely expose the beer to UV in order to expedite this process, but it may be untrue). Smells malty with very little hop aroma. Tastes like it smells, but watered down. However, I like this aspect. Along with the fizzy, thin mouthfeel, I think this is a great brew to drink on a hot summer day. Perfect for this heatwave in SoCal.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
