Heineken is a super-inoffensive lager with a stronger, bitterer taste than most internationally mass-produced lagers. It’s perfectly carbonated, pours a straw yellow colour, with little or no head to speak of. It goes down smoothly when it’s ice cold.
Heineken is a perfectly carbonated alcoholic drink with a refreshing clarity, well known for its signature green bottle and the red star. It pours a straw yellow colour with a firm foam head.

Sister brands include the Amstel and Desperado Beers, both brewed at the Heineken International brewery in Amsterdam.
