12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Extremely pale straw color, just a shade beyond water. Has 2 fingers of white head that dissipates quickly. Excellent clarity with low-moderate carbonation.

Nose
Light aromas of bread, caramel and golden apple.

Taste
Super light tasting with notes of caramel, spent grains and golden apple. There is the slightest touch of grass. As it warms notes of corn and dirt start to come through.

Mouthfeel
Medium-light bodied, crisp and clean.

Overall
Who cares?

From a Bottle into a 16oz Mason Jar (since all my other glasses were being used).

A- Nice yellow color. Lots of head, 3 finger head. A good amount of bubbles streaming up. Leaves a bit of lacing on the glass.

S- Malts, some hops. Not skunky.

T- Malty breadiness, grassy hops. Good and balanced hop bitterness. An enjoyable bready aftertaste. Not skunky.

M- This beer has a great mouthfeel. It's a nice balance between watery and carbonation.

Drinkability- Very drinkable. Smooth going down.

O- Overall, Heineken is a great casual drinking beer. I think my Heineken wasn't skunked at all, which is supposedly very rare from the green bottle that it has.
