MikeSass: *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.


I've had countless Heineken, Moosehead, Molson, Steinlager etc. beers that were refreshing and delicious right out of the bottle. Multiply those by 100 and that's the number of skunky beers I've had of those green bottled varieties. It is NOT supposed to taste like that. The shipping, handling and storage turn those beers skunky much more easily than brown bottled beer. I have a friend that drinks Heineken. I'll ask to smell hers when we're out and she orders one. If it's fresh, I'll order those, too. Most often though, it smells like skunk. F*ck that.

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 :(


You're not a disappointment. It's just your taste in beers that's a disappointment.

The can preserves the beer better, but yes, putting your lips on the aluminum rim will give you an aluminum taste. Have to pour into a glass.

jfivealive: PainInTheASP: xynix: beantowndog: PainInTheASP: 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.

I thought that was how it was supposed to taste.

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 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


Have you tried allopurinol for the gout?

Hey, we have a market problem.
Let's change the package.

Not sure if any of the execs over at Heinie in a jug went to business school, but two things are standard in the beverage industry.
Tastes change, and maybe if people think your product sucks, then maybe your product sucks.
If people won't by a dog turd, don't try to sell me on it being packaged poorly.

Someone is getting burned over there.
Paying people to think like this.

I may only qualify for loading dock work in their little fantasy word, but at least I'm not being over paid to put weasel piss in a green bottle and call it amber - osia. Fark that.

I don't get heineken. The only time I've really found it's enjoyable is either REALLY stoned, or when it's really hot outside. If I'm just chillin' watching a football game, or want a beer at dinner... no thanks!

I like beer. Heineken is not good beer. It's okay, but it's priced like really it's really good. At mass market macrobrew prices I might buy it. At microbrew prices, no thanks.

Depending on the setup I'll open one of the sealed cardboard boxes full of heineken six-packs versus getting one of the six-packs on display. They are shipped in those boxes and unexposed to light.

Yeah, no. There are good beers that have elements of the flavor you label as being "skunky", and there are bad ones.

I drink and enjoy many, many types of beer, including quite a few of the best-rated brews on BeerAdvocate. I am also not a beer snob, and recognize not everybody wants to exist solely on microbrews and beers for which you have to hunt for weeks to track down a bottle. For a mass-market beverage, Heineken is a perfectly drinkable brew. Pull your head out of your own ass and you, too, might recognize that. The only people who whine about Heineken are beer snobs who whine about practically all mass-market beer, or people who can't stomach anything except watery, almost tasteless brews like Budweiser.

St. Pauli Girl was my go to green bottle skunky beer back when I was trying new beers. I can't stand that stuff now, though.

As a beer flavor professional (no, really!), it is my experience-guided opinion that fresh Heineken out of a can or keg is a fine beer.

It is also my opinion that stale Heineken, or Heineken in a green bottle, should be poured down the drain.

I'd be more worried about overall age and temperature fluctuations during transit than being light struck.

Most liquor/beer coolers are designed to minimize any UV light and skunking.

Now, you pull one out of a case that's been sitting buried in some massive floor display for 6 months...well, that's a different problem.

With beer, as with art, there's the consideration of intent. If the brewmaster intended the beer to have a skunky bouquet, well, that's his business. If the beer is skunky because the glassware it shipped in allowed photoreactions to create skunkiness, well, that's just dumb.

ChipNASA: [2.bp.blogspot.com image 311x320]

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.


Ah, but how do you know the light goes out when you close the door?

I have been trained in microbrewery science. There is NOTHING good about the element of skunkiness in a beer.
Takes me 2 minutes to find a local craft beer that is cheaper than that green swill.
So no, yeah, you're an idiot.
