3.05/5  rDev +12.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Back in my younger-teen years, this was the beer for special occasions (prom, concerts, etc.) and a step up from the American Macros (Bud, Miller, Rolling Rock, etc.).

I poured my Heineken into a tall pilsner glass and it looks like most macros, yellow-gold, minimum head with no retention. Smell of grain and corn husks. Taste is grainy, corny, watery, faint hops, and mild malt sweetness. Crisp and bitey on the palate with a dry finish.

I have had alot of good times, many years ago drinking Heineken,...but with the thousands of craft brews on the market, why bother. I have heard rumors over the years that a Heineken over in Europe tastes alot different than what is available in the U.S.... next Heineken review may reflect that!
