The bottle could look like a shoe and I wouldn't care.. I just want the delicious filling!

Also just discovered a huge range of beers at a place near me named Total Wine. I mean like 100s of craft beers from around the world.. I've never been a beer guy in that sense but now I'm starting to like picking up a random bottle and seeing what it tastes like. Maybe I'll become a beerologist or whatever.. I'm mostly a wine drinker and am finding this fascinating. I used to be Coors Light on the boat (cause it's like water) and Heineken at home.

Wait a minute.

Are they talking about changing from the one on the right to the one on the left as pictured below?

Because the bottles on the left have been in my neck of the woods for a long time.

Will Lootie still be able to recognize the bottle?

What's the big deal, it's essentially the same. It's not like some 'Electric Blue Superman' change.

Does the new neck break off with a satisfying crash and form into a razor sharp weapon at a moments notice? or will it render my foe unconscious as it harmlessly shatters in my ungloved hands

I call on the power of Fark!!! Bring me the tv ad of the bead of sweat trailing down a woman's body like the bottle of beer. I could swear it was a Heineken commercial.


Please and thank you

Personally I think that the best thing they could do would be to get rid of the stupid green bottle. Most of the time that I get Heineken these days, I find that it tastes skunky as hell. Maybe replacing the green bottle with a brown bottle will help this.

Yeah I think that's how it supposed to taste. It tasted the same exact way in Amsterdam at the brewery. Of course I was high as shiat but that just made my taste buds more attentive.

People like that shiat?!?! LOL. Then they would probably be better off just buying a case of Miller longnecks and leaving them in the sun for a month or so. Cheaper, anyway.

I've only tried two beers where I've taken one sip, then dumped the rest. Heineken, and Miller High Life. Heineken tastes like garbage, High Life like piss.
 
2012-10-09 04:07:53 PM
this totally makes me want to drink that swill
 
2012-10-09 04:08:39 PM
It doesn't add up to a rat's ass what the bottle looks like. The beer inside is what counts. How long has it been since Heineken has been a real beer?

And remember, folks, If face can't do it, your Heine-ken.
 
2012-10-09 04:09:20 PM
i used to drink. a lot. know what i found out?

you know that little empty gap at the top of a Heineken bottle where there is no beer up to the cap? you know what that is? a goddamn major farking headache the size of Texas just waiting to kick your ass the next morning when you wake up.

Heineken: because with a good marketing campaign, americans will believe anything from Europe is worth buying even if its utter pig swill.

Daf*ck you talkin' about?
Anyone who knows a flavor profile knows that shiate green beer is skunky.
 
2012-10-09 04:10:54 PM
I don't always drink skunky beer, but when I do, I prefer Pabst Blue Ribbon . Stay thirsty, my friends.

There are some beers that just always seem to have a skunky bouquet like Molson Golden of Canada or Heineken of the Netherlands. I had just assumed that was how they were meant to be. I would be wrong. Skunkiness in beer is never a desirable feature for any brewer and is caused by light. A beer in a bottle, especially clear or green, is very susceptible to light. In particular, the bitter compounds in hops, isohumulones, break down very quickly and react with sulfur compounds in the beer. This produces MBT (3-methyl-2-butene-1-thiol), which not only smells like skunk, but is chemically very similar to a skunk's spray. It only takes a matter of hours of light for a beer to go skunky.

Cans and kegs offer the best protection for beers, but to be perfectly honest, I think a canned beer tastes like aluminum. Brown bottles also protect beer fairly well. But clear or green glass leaves the beer practically defenseless. Pilsners in green glass bottles notoriously go skunky. It's best to keep beer in a dark refrigerator.

FTA: The bottle also features an embossed thumb groove that improves grip and encourages people to hold the bottle at a lower point, keeping the beer colder.

Now this is technology i can stand behind

I have become quite accustomed to the taste now, considering its one of the only beers that I can drink that doesn't really flare up the ol gout

Pour it all down the sink because that's where it belongs!

They already have, which is how they noticed Heineken tastes skunky. Other beer makers don't use green bottles for a reason.

/come back when you know why not
 
2012-10-09 04:16:41 PM
Changing it to a brown bottle? No? Well, bye.

*laughs at people who say they don't like Heineken because it tastes skunky*

Why can't you losers simply admit that you just don't like beer? Fermented grain tastes like fermented grain. That pisswater Bud you drink is made with rice in order to take away all the beer flavor, so that patsies like you can still feel manly about yourselves when you say that you are a beer drinker. In reality, Bud is little more than a Zima without the citrus flavor added. It tastes nothing like beer, it hardly even looks like beer, and only qualifies as beer on a technicality.

Face it...you just don't like beer. Which is ok, I'm not saying you should, or that you have to. Just trying to make sure you know how stupid what you are saying is.
 
2012-10-09 04:17:49 PM
ChipNASA pretty much splained it. When Molsen went from green to brown bottles here in the states the skunky was not there anymore.

If the stuff they send to the US is the same as they sell in The Netherlands I wouldn't scream to hard about Heineken having taste. Heineken is probably designed to be as tasteless as possible so it won't offend anyone.

FTFA: The bottle also features an embossed thumb groove that improves grip and encourages people to hold the bottle at a lower point, keeping the beer colder.

Hmmm... Wouldn't a lower grip mean that the drinker's hand stays closer to the beer for longer (e.g. when the bottle's half-empty), thus transferring more body heat to the contents than if they held it higher?

Heineken out of the keg can pretty much tastes exactly like that out of the green bottle, except it tastes like it came out of the tap, instead of the bottle. So i'm not really sure there's a correlation there.

The other crap beer in a green bottle is Rolling Rock.

Never. ever. again.

I like Heineken.
Then again, I like Coors Light too.

A couple local breweries here in Austin have gone canned. They are lined these days, and taste quite clean. I'm a big fan.

Corona is my skunky beer of choice. I second the Heineken headache comment up there too.


There's usually a Corona or two that gets forgotten in some corner of my boat for a while. It's located and put in the "Rainy Day" pile with a Natty Boh that's rattled around so long the print is gone from the can and some Christmas stuff from last year. They all eventually get drank and the Corona holds up the best, or at least changes the least, rusty caps and all.

Ha!
To be perfectly honest, I don't think I've ever had a beer that I didn't like.

I'm sorry that I'm such a disappointment :(
