2.55/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from 16oz can into tulip.

Appearance: Pours a pale, translucent yellow with about a fingersworth of tight white head that dissipates into nothing quite quickly.

Smell: Crisp, grassy, and skunky, even from a can.

Taste: Mimics the smell quite well, lots of grassy notes as well as the ever present Heineken skunkiness.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and clean, very drinkable.

Overall: Very average Euro Pale Lager, not bad, but not good either, rather bland and unoffensive.

2.53/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: clear gold, no head, no lacing

S: sweet grainy malts, zero hops, very faint... No skunk notes thanks to the can

T: starts off with a sweet corn like taste, not a whole lot else working there, surprisingly clean

Mf: light body, high carbonation

O: not nearly as bad as the green bottle version, still lacking in flavor, the only flavor is moldy sweet grain and corn

3.35/5  rDev +23.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance - Pours a clear golden color with a half inch thick, fluffy white head. The lacing is great.

Smell - When opening and pouring the bottle the room was filled with a very nice corny/skunky scent. Grains and malts are also present.

Taste - Pale malts up front, skunky, corns and grains, and light bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light body with high carbonation.

Overall - Not what I was expecting for being so popular but it's still a pretty good Euro lager.
