3.15/5  rDev +16.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Considering I can only compare this to Amstel Light, I can say it's a lighter version of its rival. I see more foam than in Amstel.

Smell: Very little smell to it. Again, like its competitor, some sweetness, but nothing distinct.

Taste/Mouthfeel: While Heinie doesn't have a bad taste, it does have a weird one and is a bit watery. Maybe a bit more skunked than Amstel (possibly due to green bottles instead of brown ones). Also, the trademark sweetness and a bit salty. No hops or maltiness.

Drinkability: Easy to drink. Definitely possible to drink a decent amount of these although it leaves a lingering taste. Not as crips as Amstel.

Overall: I think Heineken might be a bit overrated, at least compared to what other people and commercials tell me. Let's just say if I go to Amsterdam ever, I'd choose the competition.

Serving type: bottle
