1.53/5  rDev -43.5%
look: 2.25 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

Pours a pale straw color with one of the flimsiest, bright-white heads around that dissipates quick and reduces to a barely noticeable ring within seconds. Nose is grainy, metallic, and slightly skunky. Who would have thought, given the green bottles? My palate is picking up a grainy backbone with an astringent, off-putting bitterness that doesn't contain much hop aroma or flavor, just a chalky bitterness that crushes the grain profile. Thin, clean, crisp finish with maybe a hint of grapes or apple skins in the final touch, but it's barely enough to save this one. The metallic flavor becomes more noticeable near the end of the brew, kind of like a heavy copper-ish smell and taste. The body is thinner than thin and the carbonation is relatively high.

Bleh, I'm not a fan of this one at all. Hated this when I first tried it, long ago. Tried it again thinking maybe I was just inexperienced earlier - still don't care for it.

S-doesnt have much of a smell, a little skunk

T- not to much to it, goes good with a lot , tastes kind of skunk, definitely has to be very cold

M-nothing special

O-its a heineken..solid beer but nothing special, would rather have a lot of other beers over this

Good beer out of Holland. I've tried many Heineken's and they all pretty much taste the same. It is a clear yellow beer with an average size head. It can go great with any food. It has a simple taste that most people would surely enjoy during the summer time
