Though most of us can boast of swilling Heineken on numerous occasions and in numerous formats, having thus been untouched by Hoochsavvy, it merits a cursory review.
Golden yellow on the pour, this lager is true to its nature in appearance and in bouquet.
Light malted notes betray little discernible hops to the nose.
Light and refreshing, this beer is an easy drinking lager that deviates from no norms of brewing. Like so many other things in life, perception is reality, and the presentation is what affects the perception.
Not without its charms (and best in draught format), but ultimately overpriced.
Hoochsavvy Grade: B-
