I would just like to add an update and mention that I strongly agree with FrozenJoe's assessment of Heineken in a can. The canned version is MUCH better than the bottle for some reason.

Presentation: The usual green bottle with a nice pour into a pilsner glass. Looks refreshing.

Appearance - A clear yellow color with significant carbonation, poured with a nice 10 mm head that remained throughout. Excellent lacing around the glass. Quite nice.

Smell - Some grass with hints of citrus. Non-metallic. Clean. Smells like Heineken!

Taste - Towards the dry side with less malt than hops... but a decent balance. The aftertaste is clean and refreshing. No complaints.

Mouthfeel - Smooth and pleasant but dry. Almost sort of acidic. The can version tastes a bit sweeter.

Overall - Not too bad! I used to buy these in Las Vegas for 50 cents a pop and don't mind having one every once in a while. Nothing extraordinary but wouldn't pass one one up if offered to me either. They keep raising the price for a six though which causes me to only take a brief glance at it in the case then pass it by. Drinking the can version seems to be betyter than the bottle. It is much smoother and easy on the palate. Enjoy!
