Heineken Light has been named the World Beer Championships’ Best Tasting Light Beer for the second year running. And if Neil asks, that World’s Smoothest Spokesman award is coming any minute.
A flavor profile worthy of the Best Taste Guarantee doesn’t just happen on its own. It requires expert brewmasters with a dedication to quality ingredients. And taste buds. It also requires taste buds.
Like all beers, Heineken Light is mostly made of water. But unlike other Light Lagers, it doesn’t taste like it. Malted barley provides a foundation for its aroma, flavor, and color, then two unique ingredients turn that simple mash into the Best Tasting Light Beer.
The floral notes and hints of citrus come from the use of Cascade Hops. It’s a choice commonly found in IPAs, which explains why Heineken Light is uncommonly flavorful.
Finally, our brewmasters add the same proprietary “A-Yeast” that gives Heineken Lager its signature aroma. You know, instead of fixing what isn’t broken.
The brew spends its first 5 fermentation days in a horizontal tank, which gives Heineken Light its fruity character and a pretty laid back attitude.
We’ve gone to great lengths to craft the new and improved Heineken Light using nothing but natural, quality ingredients. That means no filler grains, no coloring, no preservatives, and absolutely no GMOs.
