Seriously.You are now smarter, better looking, and more well endowed. Women like you. Men want to be you. Teams of scientist secretly confiscate your toilet offal in the hopes that they may, one day, be able to genetically replicate the awesomeness that is you.When you drink another beer, you become a "kan' uctenalaka" which is Inuit for "Man who needs another man to satisfy his wife"./is going home to drink a KBBA now.
UseUrHeadFred: As a beer store owner, I can attest that the green bottles are the bain of my existence. I have all of my lights UV shielded, but that only goes so far. Cans are kind of frowned upon in my neck of the woods, despite their growing popularity in craft beer.A brown bottle would be more than welcome.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: If the skunky taste of Heineken is due to the green bottle, why doesn't Rolling Rock or Grolsch also taste skunky?

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.

Maud Dib: ChipNASA:Cans and kegs offer the best protection for beers, but to be perfectly honest, I think a canned beer tastes like aluminum.A couple local breweries here in Austin have gone canned. They are lined these days, and taste quite clean. I'm a big fan.[i865.photobucket.com image 850x637][i865.photobucket.com image 768x1024]

PainInTheASP: gweilo8888: Maud Dib: gweilo8888: In before the kiddies complain about skunky flav... oh, wait. Never mind./come back when your tastebuds developDaf*ck you talkin' about?Anyone who knows a flavor profile knows that shiate green beer is skunky.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.LOL.
