Enjoying a light, crisp and refreshing beer sometimes comes at the expense of taste and quality. But with Heineken Silver, say goodbye to compromise. At only 3.2 carbs & 95 calories, Heineken Silver is a full-bodied yet crisp and refreshing lager that delivers on taste. We brew it at 4.0% ABV with only premium ingredients: malted barley, water, and a small but significant extra, called A Yeast.

Mildly alcoholic seltzer. How does this have a higher rating than the (already not great, but at least better than this) regular Heineken? It's basically water.

24oz can poured into pint glass. BBD DEC-2023 printed on bottom of can. So this has 4 months left in it. Pretty fresh.

Appearance - Extremely clear straw gold body with thin white head with decent lacing and a stick. 3.75

Smell - No skunky smell whatsoever... very surprising. Lends credibility to the idea that the green bottles cause beers to get sunstruck/skunked more easily, where as this can has none of that. Light corny malt. 4.25

Taste - Mild. Also no skunk, just a hint of that hop bitterness. A little thin and watery. Not the greatest balanced, but inoffensive. 3.5

Mouthfeel - A bit watery. 3

Overall - Inoffensive. Weak. Europe's Michelob Ultra. 3.5

From the silvery can, it pours a clear light yellow golden color with a modest white head that soon diminishes to a quarter inch layer. Scent is divine: velvety, floral and a bit soft (to my firiend). The taste is grainy malt with a sharp beginning and slight aftertaste.-*/

I could reproduce my notes, but I feel like I have a better way to review this beer. I absolutely would not have bought it, if it were not on sale. Not just any sale. Mariano's, now a subsidiary of the Kroger chain of grocery stores in the upper midwest, had it on sale. Two (2) twelve (12) packs for $8.99 if you bought two. That's a steal for any beer, right? Then . . . THEN . . . the Kroger app had an additional $1.50 off per 12-pack. So basically, my receipt reads: $8.99 minus $1.50 minus $1.50 = $5.99 for 24 cans of Heineken Silver beer. No problem. I like hops, but I'm not above drinking this at the beach. It turns out I can only drink so much Silver at the beach.

Two months later, Mariano's has the same 2-for-$9 promotion. (No coupons on the app this time.) And I'm not interested. If I had a party I wanted to host, I'd probably buy. But right now, it's a struggle to finish the second original 12er.

Pours a thin white head, mild lacing. Color is pale straw. Aroma is a mild grains and yeast. Muted flavor of barley sweetness, extremely mild hop presence. Overall: it is good in the ultra light style, it is noticeably a Heineken product (due to their distinctive yeast), just watered down.

Clear pale golden appearance with a loose fizzy white head, low retention, no lacing. Grass, herb, pepper notes. Light body and carbonation. Blander than the regular, more flavor than the light.

Seems to actually be brewed in Holland...yay! Considering how bad the licenced usual Heineken is in this country where I live, this is hopefully better ; )

Good colour, not too pale. Head actually looks pretty good, smooth and small bubbles. Aroma is very light malt and faint hops.

Wow, this is so much better than the actual subcontracted Heineken in the country that I am in. The hop extract is amazing. Really amazing. This seems to be the best Heineken beer that I have ever had. Maybe because Heineken is usually brewed in the country that you are in, and not by Heineken Holland. This has super light malt, with a light biscuittyness, it tastes super natural and pure...the hops are mega complex, kind of German fused with Czech.

This is by far the best light pilsner that I have ever had. And trust me, I have had lots. I have never liked a pilsner before made with "hops extract". This is totally amazing. People love to hate Heneken, but I promise...blind taste this next to some of the most popular pilsners in the world, in the sun. It's a great beer. One of the best beers ever for sitting in the sun.

The pour is golden yellow with a light amount of carbonation. In addition to, I notice a white head of foam dissipates quicker than the average lager beer. For some reason the aroma is a little worse than the regular Heineken lager beer but the taste is similar to the regular Heineken except the barley is not as pronounced & I don't notice any hop presence either. Yes, I agree this beer is missing that Heineken bite. If you want to work on your waist, but still want to enjoy the taste of beer then you should drink one regular 12 oz Heineken & then drink a few of these Heineken silver 12 oz beers after supper. Cheers! B-

12oz bottle. Poured out a clear, pale golden color with a small, fizzy, white head of foam. It left minimal lacing on the glass. It smelled of caramel, grains, corn and subtle floral notes. It tasted sweet with toasted bread and some maltiness. Mild bitterness.
