Well here it is, the good old Heineken Lager. Got a 12 Pk of this special edition canned series.

A: A light golden/straw color with a 2-3 inch head that slowly dissipates to nothing, but leaves some lacing. Not much carbonation to speak of.

S: The smell has some grain, a malt sweetness and light corn or rice.

T: Despite the can, this beer still has that skunky taste to it and is somewhat metallic. Still get some grain and corn with the slightly sweet malts.

M: Pretty much the only way to drink this beer is iced cold. As soon as it warms up, the beer falls apart.

O: Simply reviewing this as an Adjunct Lager, I would say its not a great beer, but its not the worst either. Avoid the green bottle and the experience should be a little better. A good beer for parties, backyard BBQ, or a yard work refreshment.

Revisited this beer with the canned version. This is a completely different beer than I remember. I thought that I had also read that they had dropped any adjuncts that may have been in the recipe. Maybe it's just the can. I don't know. This beer is very refreshing. Very Malty. Pours the same dark straw color that you would expect from a Euro-Lager. A bit of bitter hops. Since I have tried this in the can, I had also stopped by at a local pub and have had this on tap. This beer is actually a decent beer. It is not Paulaner or Spaten, but for the price it's pretty good and not much more than American swill.
