Poured from that dumb-looking "keg-can" into a pint glass.
Crystal clear, golden color, slightly pale. White head, pours two fingers but dissipates to a bit of film on the top. Moderate lacing, but not very sticky.
Grainy nose, some bitterness. Straightforward and not particularly appealing.
Mostly grainy, some slight sweetness and slight hop bitterness.
Crisp from the carbonation. Light to moderate body.
No skunky elements from the can serving, unlike the green bottle. Still a mediocre beer and probably not worth the calories.
Serving type: can

I would just like to add an update and mention that I strongly agree with FrozenJoe's assessment of Heineken in a can. The canned version is MUCH better than the bottle for some reason.
Presentation: The usual green bottle with a nice pour into a pilsner glass. Looks refreshing.
Appearance - A clear yellow color with significant carbonation, poured with a nice 10 mm head that remained throughout. Excellent lacing around the glass. Quite nice.
Smell - Some grass with hints of citrus. Non-metallic. Clean. Smells like Heineken!
Taste - Towards the dry side with less malt than hops... but a decent balance. The aftertaste is clean and refreshing. No complaints.
Mouthfeel - Smooth and pleasant but dry. Almost sort of acidic. The can version tastes a bit sweeter.
Overall - Not too bad! I used to buy these in Las Vegas for 50 cents a pop and don't mind having one every once in a while. Nothing extraordinary but wouldn't pass one one up if offered to me either. They keep raising the price for a six though which causes me to only take a brief glance at it in the case then pass it by. Drinking the can version seems to be betyter than the bottle. It is much smoother and easy on the palate. Enjoy!
