Born in Amsterdam and raised by the world, Heineken Lager is brewed according to the original four-ingredient recipe that first earned it’s international reputation as a premium beer in 1886.
Consisting of just water, barley, hops, and yeast, Heineken Lager is a pure European pilsner. Bright golden in color and malty, yet mildly bitter in taste, it was designed by its namesake, Gerard Adriaan Heineken, to be the consummate “Gentleman’s Beer” in his Dutch homeland.In pursuit of his commitment to quality, Gerard established the very first in-brewery laboratory, where he and Dr. H. Elion perfected the beer’s unique flavor by isolating the “A-yeast” strain that would become its signature ingredient.
With just 99 calories, Heineken Light is brewed with Cascade Hops and our signature A-yeast for the crisp, refreshing flavor and clean aftertaste that make it the World Beer Championship’s Best Tasting Light Beer.
Heineken’s Dark Lager is reddish-amber in color, surprisingly light-bodied for a dark beer & very well-balanced!
