I just realised I've never reviewed this one, although is one of my favorites when I want to drink quite a few beers in just one afternoon. I am going to assume that everyone (almost) is familiar with this one, since it's so highly advertised. Bottle of 300 ml, in a brown bottle. Golden yellow colour, with a two finger head, average retention. Smell is not that good, as a matter of fact smells a bit skunky. Taste is better, quite close to the average pilsener. Medium thin on the body, average carbonation, some dryness left behind on the palate. Overall an average beer, praised by many mainly because of the advertising and loathed by many others because of how mainstream it is. I see 20 something guys writing on the internet "Oh, Heineken, this sucks, you should try the -enter name of a shitty beer-, it's great, but lacks the advertising that's why not many people know it". Yeah, right. Anyway. Oh, I also had Heineken many times in Greece where its made locally and it's not imported, and I consider it to be far better than the original!
