    Consistency is the most common problem with this beer. I almost never get a Heineken that tastes the same. Blame the retailer or the green bottle that allows more light to penetrate (skunking the beer), but perhaps they should take the same care with ensuring quality that Sam Adams, Stella Artois, and Guiness have taken with their products. When I get a good one, it's characteristic of a classic crisp and refreshing German lager (yes, I know it's Dutch). What used to be "expensive, import, fancy" beer is now a traditional example of European craftsmanship and tradition in a bottle... assuming you get one that isn't "skunked" yet. My recommendation, drink it on draft from a bar you know can rotate it properly and keeps their lines clean for the best taste.

    This one falls in the same category as Corona: simple and bland. Mostly acidic and skunky (even metallic), it won't be a great beer exprience but it still can be enjoyed for it's crispness and breadiness.

    I'm not much on it out of a bottle but I do like it on draft. I have a mini kegerator so I just buy the mini home drafts, take the tap off and put it on my mini kegerator, it's not bad when I do that to me. Chilled mug helps too

    Of the macro brews, Heineken is one of those at the top of the list for me. It pours up a vibrant pale amber body and a nice foamy head that dissipates quickly and then tends to leave good lacing on the sides of the glass. The aroma is just as I remember from over the years, very clean and possesses a slight hoppy hit. Flavors of hops and just a tad of sweet malt; there's also somewhat of a lemon grass flavor floating around here and there. Very easy to drink and makes for a suitable session brew from a macro-brewery.

    [Best served in an English pint]

    Poured a pale to medium yellow with a small white fizzy head that was fully diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was that of light grain malts, a flowery hop and a horse blanket yeast. It tasted a little bitter at first and finished with a mild bitter hoppy flavor that was quite crisp. Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a lively carbonation. Overall a nice crisp refreshing brew, just right for the style.
