Bottle from my father in law. Travelling all day, too tired to go out and buy real beer. I remember this being a lot crisper back in the day, now just a cheap pale lager. Adjunct grains very prevalent in aroma and taste. This used to be a treat, now just another macro.

Tastes alright on tap. Don't bother with the green bottles unless you like the skunk taste. Overall not worth it for the price in any case, there are better, cheaper domestics.

My first beer was a Heineken. So it will always be one of my favorites.
Wonderful light yeast smell. The taste is way above most American lagers budweiser, miller and coors. I get a yeasty, bread dough/ cracker like flavor with a slightly herbal bite In the middle you will get a subtle fruitiness. The finish is nicely dry with not much bitterness. I love and enjoy this beer. This is a great all around beer for a pale lager.The best part about this beer is the fact that it is a true euro lager with no filler such as corn or rice. Just wholesome traditional flavor. Heineken being the huge international company they are; really set a high touchstone for me because of there commitment to preserving beer as what it is, beer.

This was from a can. The bottles are sometimes skunky. Starts with a frothy, fading head and pale, straw color. There is a light hop aroma. A sharp carbination and citrius hop bitterness seem to be the backbone of this lager. There is very little malt presence to peak the interest. Decent brew for a macro brewery.

Of the common beers, big H is one of the most reliable beers.

The beer has some stickiness and minimal lacing.

The smell is the least interesting aspect, it lacks the artificial sweetness of common light beersn and it's skunked

The taste is a Peppery metallic breaded orchestra in a vast hallway, the smell is the weight here

The feel is quite clean as it lacks the sugary syrups in other light beers

Overall grade A for inexpensive and extremely common beer

Maybe better than Bud light, but I can't get over the skunk smell that I always get from this beer.

Large head when poured which reduces down to a slim film of a head

Colour - golden honey colour
Smell - strong pleasant, copper penny smell
Taste - strong barley taste, sweet banana (highly carbonated) slight copper penny taste - lingering barley after taste

Overall - Heineken is my go to beer when im out and i must admit i prefer it on draft to bottle, however both bottle and draft draft are still my favourite beer
