Heineken Lager is known the world over for its great taste, but also for it's green bottle. It seems likely that this is the case because people will stare you down, green with envy, when your delivery of Heineken arrives at the doorstep. Developed from a proprietary yeast strain out of the stunning city of Amsterdam that provides a cool, slightly fruity character to the beer, this European lager has remained constant since the 1800's. Similar in ways to many of the American lagers that we know and love, Heineken heightens what we know about lagers, bringing the style to a premium plane that we'd expect from the Venice of the north.
Brewed with the same recipe that has been kept as a tight lipped secret since 1873, the clean, crisp flavor of Heineken is something to take pride in. After pouring the crystal clear, straw yellow lager into your favorite beer glass, let it sit for a moment or two as you allow the bubbling head to diminish. Good things are worth waiting for and more importantly, it will allow the beer to warm up just slightly, bringing the luscious hop and yeast characters to life.
Heineken Lager is a beer that can be enjoyed in so many different occasions, always lifting the experience to a new level when it is added to the situation. A wonderful beer to serve over passed appetizers and the sounds of jazz as it is to swig right out of the bottle while watching college football and munching on potato chips.
