12oz bottle, best by June 2024

In the pour, 1 finger of white head formed on top of a perfectly clear, golden body. Very high carbonation.

Aroma is bringing mostly lightly skunked noble hops. Not a lot else going on, but there is a light sweetness. Surprisingly clean however.

Flavor follows the aroma, but the hops take more of a back seat. With that said, there isn't really a malt character that takes over. This is super light tasting, but the hops give it something at least. Somehow this is hoppier than standard Heineken.

The feel is chuggable, refreshing, and dry. The finish is short and a bit watery. Not much to say here.

Overall, this is somehow better than standard Heineken, but not mind-blowing by any means. I will say that this is one of the best light lagers I've had, along with Amstel Light, but these came out of the same factory, so maybe Heineken should just stick to making lightly hoppy, light lagers?

Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with a white foamy/creamy head. Smell is barely perceptible, very mild earth/grassy scent. Taste is mostly a clean malt profile with a somewhat weak hop bite. Feels well carbonated thin bodied. Mildly astringent. Finishes dry. Overall it is what it is- For a light lager it is as good as Amstel in my opinion, better than the macro brew light beers- Only 3.3 % ABV. After reviewing this Amstel and Heineken are both "macro" , I meant American macro breweries.

God awful nasty!
This beer has no redeeming qualities whatsoever.
I'd rather drink mule piss.
Took 2 sips and drain poured it, poor drain. Sorry.
Probably should have flushed it instead.
Pale off clear with no head, sour/skunky/putrid smell.
Who drinks this crap and enjoys it.
At least have an Amstel Light.
Not much better, but ... Better.

So this is pretty ass, no two ways about it. They used to have that guy from that show that was also ass and the ad would be on all the time. They said it was like the best ranked light beer or something, but this is just Dutch River water scooped out of the Holland canals. Gross. First time I had this was at a billiards/ping pong kinda arcade bar on the second floor (my first mistake) in New Orleans like 5 years ago. It was piss then and I didn’t even really drink beer at the time. Now it’s plan undrinkable to me an frankly I love the regular Heineken. It’s a great lager with good crisp taste. This? This is flat, pungent skunk water. It’s Heineken but it’s like been run through the drink dispenser hose at the bar. Sorta kinda tastes like something you know to be orange juice but you know it’s sourced from concentrate. That’s this. Heineken that’s been watered down, run through a dirty fire hose and a skunk’s ass, then bottled. Steer clear my friends.

Green bottle into glass

This is waay better on-tap, but is decent out tha bottle, too. Cleaner and lighter than the OG but with about the same hops, which is a win in my book

An OK terrible beer
