Heineken is the skunkiest cheap alternative to a good beer. This is good to drink when you're not trying to spend any more money on a good six pack. Don't get me wrong, I drink Heineken all the time because I work at a gas station and they don't sell any stouts. Let me just say, that this is about the best ballgame beer you'll find in the stadium, or at the travel center, usually first seen in a 24 ounce. I have a 6 of this right now, but then again I just got done with some dead guy and old Rasputin, so this tastes more like water to me now. But overall, if you're low on budget, and there is no diverse beer store around, settle for this and you won't be very disappointed.
THE APPEARANCE- follows that nice Skunky smell with a light golden yellow color with medium amounts of carbonation throughout. Really thin.
THE TASTE- kind of follows the smell as well. Pretty strong pong beer. Actually perfect for pong. Taste stays with you for a minute. This beer in particular has a corn taste with a different little hint of wheat or barley, I'm not sure.. but mix that with some bud light and that's what you got. Like I said, a stronger, heavier, easy to down ballgame beer. Buy this if you're looking for a quick buzz or going to a game.

taste was sweet with a clean dry finish
