Review: Can of Heineken pale lager, 5%ABV
An appearance that has a very clear pale golden colour. On pouring, you get a nice average sized head that leaves a good looking lager. Has steady lacing
Smell is a distinct yeast aroma with grassy hops. A pleasant lager smell.
The taste is a quite distinctive yeast flavor with a tiny hint of hops, crisp and smooth it goes down easy. The aftertaste is clean and refreshing.
