I have never been impressed with Heineken. I always thought it was over priced and over rated. I always had it from the green bottle and sometimes found it to be slightly skunky.

This is the first time I have ever had it from a can. Typical lager in appearance. Bright golden yellow color with a foamy white head. Lots of carbonation. Medium bodied. This is a little heavier than comparable American lagers.

It has a pleasant, slightly sweet smell.
The taste is sweet and malty with a slight hop bitterness in the finish.
Ice cold, this beer hits the spot, as it warms up, it becomes less enjoyable.

Overall, Heineken is a nice beer.
Better from a can than in a bottle.
A little pricey for what you get, but not bad at all.
