Heine-can, the fabled libation of my misspent youth, we are reunited again... You have new fancy trappings upon your can - these strange embossed grippy things - and I am not necessarily impressed by them. Your change is not as blasphemous as the recent label switch of classic Budweiser to the 'Hourglass' design, but still, what's with all the newfangled gimmickry?

Pours brassy and golden, with evident carbonation, and a soft mat of white frothy micro-bubbles atop. Heinken is tinny and skunky by nature; this can... is only slightly less so. It is actually not very skunky, but metallic flavors are certainly to be found. There is some residual sweetness, and alcohol is readily discernible. This stuff tastes very similar to Colt 45, truth be told. Not a huge fan of the beer in any regard, but the can is definitely better than the green bottle.
