Heineken Lager Beer

Beer No. 41 – Heineken Lager Beer

Mad Men taught us that ’60s housewives will buy it. The refrigerator in my dad’s garage tells me that lager-swilling baby boomers will too.

STYLE: Euro Pale Lager

ABV: 5%

LOOK: Bubbly pale yellow with a deliciously creamy head that doesn’t last. I thought I was going to sip a fresh biscuit, but now it’s just a thin meh line.

NOSE: Cereal, a little Rice Krispies and Cheerios. These are distinct, almost robust.

MOUTH: Pour a bowl of cereal, then add some water instead of milk. Let that sit a few minutes. Drain and throw away the cereal. Bottle the “beer.”
