Heineken the real thing on tap at Heineken cafe in Amsterdam airport, not those skunked bottles that come to U.S.

Decent fizzy head, nice notches lacing too, crystal clear watery straw color.

Nose light pilsner malt, very faint version of the sulfury unhappy lager, light golden malt character, very faint hint of a grassy hop

Taste is lighter but not too bad, no skunk surprisingly, straw malt, grainy pilsner, golden sweet malt with a syrupy sticky fermented corn syrup thing going though which still gives me the macro feel, and light unhappy lager yeast. Some milder grassy hops as well with some earthy nagging bitterness. Finish is lighter with more of the nagging bitterness and a sticky syrup malt base flavor.

Mouth is lighter bod, decent carb, little watery.

Overall not nearly as bad as I expected as it wasn't super skunked and metallic, but still has syrupy fermented macro lager flavors and a very slight sulfury unhappy yeast thing, so still not a great beer but tolerable.
