I'm working from notes here since I had this at a friend's house a few days ago. I don't really feel that I need the notes though since this used to be a staple of mine before I discovered real beer. Typical yellow lager color with a thin and short lived head. Boy do I remember that smell which I used to think was exotic because it contrasted so sharply with the smell of American macros. Now I understand that it is the smell of a spoiled (aka skunked) beer. The taste is just as revolting as the smell. The only time I ever had an unspoiled Heineken was on tap in a bar in Brussels and my recollection is that without the "skunk" it tastes just like every other macro brewed lager..bland and without distinction. Don't buy into the marketing campaign and don't buy this lousy beer.

In my opinion this is the worst beer on the market today. Or I should say the American Heineken is the worst. Apparently if you get it in Europe it is way better but I have yet to see. It was near clear with a little fiz. The smell was skunky as was the taste with a bad lingering aftertaste. It's one of the most popular beers in America and I just don't understand why.
