This is a good easy-drinking beer packed with good flavor. It's very hoppy but not overly bitter, and has a nice malty flavor underneath. Easy to drink a lot of this stuff and not get too twisted, and it's easy on you the next day. Kinda spendy but this a nice continental lager to chug.

I picked up a 24oz tallboy at Walmart for $2.50. I’ve always enjoyed Heineken. It tastes better than the mainstream domestic beers, but it’s not a big step up. It’s a good beer for the price.

Heineken is always a beer that I did not like, but actually it is not as bad as I thought, having not had it for a while. Best from a bottle!

The aroma is actually very foamy and inviting. This was actually one of the first 2 beers I think I ever tried, along with Becks.

So the malty taste is sweet and interesting, and there are slightly flowery czech like hops, I think this is better than most other mass produced lagers. However there is a bit of a chemical taste to it, and it needs more hops!

Great carbonation, gold but a little darker than adjuncts
Smell is skunky and bready yet appetizing
Taste is a like a very light belgian malt
A tasty but light beer, This is the only beer I crave with food for some reason

Would recommend trying this beer at like 50 degrees, just slightly chilled, a very grassy characteristic to the beer seems to then really pop out of nowhere

I’m not much of a fan of light beers but this beer gives me the impression of Mexican style skunkish beer, which I like. Although it’s far from a great or good beer it’s different enough that it grew on me.

This beer is a classic everyone knows by now. Disticntive smell or atleast to me it is (smell brings back nostalgia about hiding with beer in high school) , the taste is pretty much standard though for a european lager atleast in my novice experience. And the feel is about the same as every weak lager. But it isn't bad by any means, it is incredibly smooth with flavor vs some other lagers that taste like water.

Unmistakable flavor. A go to macro when all else fails

Golden color, filtered brilliance. Pours somewhat big white head, creamy and lingering

Nice hop aroma, subtly spicy. Otherwise quite clean

Minimal malt flavor, but a soft but distinct noble hop flavor. A bit of bitterness into the finish. Flavor is thin, but is clean and classic.

Fairly thin body, and moderately high carbonation

A nicely made euro macro lager. What I have imagined Bud could be with a more prominent hop character
