I didn't like this at all. What is described as a skunky flavor (but now I know that's what it is meant to taste like) is not good, and the smell, in my opinion, is horrific. I had to pour this one which I very rarely do, luckily I only bought a bottle since I felt as if I should try Heineken once in my life, and once it will stay.

Hey now.... Heineys as we called them back in the late 70's when I was in high school... and we had to have an older brother buy them for us, was our supreme high dollar beer way before you could get the craft micro beers here in America that tried to emulate the European rich flavors. So "poor" ...come on! WHAT UP WITH THAT YOU YOUNGSTERS!!!!

Heineken Lager Beer is an enjoyable beer, while I don't dislike it I wouldn't inherently call it enjoyable. In fact it was one of the first beers I tried on my 21st birthday. It was nice and smooth, but it had a flowing after taste. I haven't poured into a glass, which I'm sure is quiet terrible of me, but it is one of those beers that I haven't found worthy of pouring. It is a bottle beer, one that I don't look forward to, but one I take at parties when all they have is Bud Light or Miller beers.

Bland. Not overtly offensive. Just bland. Cleaner than many of the American Adjunct lagers with which it competes, but not a beer ever worth spending money on.
