I haven't got anything to say about Heineken lager that I haven't already said about other bright yellow, fizzy lagers. Heineken swears it is brewed with 100% barley, and I'll take their word for it. But the flavor and aroma aren't much different at all from other corn-based beer. It is a little sweeter tasting, so there is that. It's slightly more viscous, too, in terms of mouthfeel. But the flavor is no more interesting, and the overall quality is no more enjoyable, than Fosters or Peroni or anything by Red Hook, etc, etc, etc.

I got the idea to review grocery store beers a few weeks ago, mostly out of nostalgia. I haven't tasted most of this stuff in more than twenty years. But I've just about got it out of my system. There's just so little going on here, and so little to write about.
