Heineken Lager pours a bright straw like yellow color with no head. There was an overly sweet aroma, with skunk notes. The taste was very pale, bland, incredibly sweet, and tasted the way a skunk smells. Over carbonated and fizzy, nasty flavors, gave me a stomach pains. Overall its not the worst beer in the world, but its close.

Pours a large, soapy, white head that has nice persistence, but will fully collapse, leaving a little lacing. An almost sweet, grassy hop aroma. Golden clear color. A grainy bitterness, a flash of metallic, then biscuit malt. A little more lingering metallic with the hop bitterness in the finish. As it settles, there is grainy hops floating somewhere.

I know, I'm supposed to SLAM this to demonstrate how sophisticated and developed my palate is. Of course, it's not great, bu it's not undrinkable. It has a pleasant, soft mouthfeel and a touch of noble hops. I wasn't pissed that I was given this. I'll drink it. I've bought it a few times here and there when the pickings were REALLY slim. It fits the bill of the anonymous, international lager.

If you ARE going to get it, don't get it in the bottles where they are ALWAYS skunked. At least, on tap, it's not skunked.
