I've always liked heineken and thought it was good beer. Pours a clear straw color. Solid malt nose with some grassy hops. Nothing to find in the way of phenolic complexity. No fruity esters. The taste is clean, dry and even optimistic. It’s one of the few beers whose taste quality is the same whether in the bottle, can or on tap. It’s everywhere because it’s reliable like an old friend.

A good everyday, reliable import. Available almost every where and 9 times out of 10, reliable. Once in a very great while, I have noticed a soapy flavor in the bottles. Best on tap, next in the can and finally in the bottle. This is every man's European import.

Served from a 330ml bottle to a shaker

A: Typical straw/blonde pale lager color. About one finger of head that died down quickly and left very little lacing.

S: Mild skunk.

T: The skunk kind of mellows out in the taste. Some grassy hops are made present but are still balanced well with a slight bit of malts. Nothing stands out too much and Its somewhat watery. Perhaps a tad more bitter then most pale lagers but nothing too steep.

M: Crisp and very clean. Pretty nice mouth feel for a lager.

O: A decent and very available offer. It's pretty over hyped in my opinion but it wasn't bad at all just a bit bland. Refreshing to sit on the porch and drink but there are better beers for that in my opinion.
