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.

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.
OrganLeroy: Wait a second. Heinie did create a different bottle design in the 60s -- something called the WOBO or world bottle, which was intended as building material:http://archinect.com/news/article/65009/the-heineken-wobo-world-bottl eIf this bottle had caught on, once Farkers got past the taste of the Heinie, most of us would have built garden sheds and airplane hangars out of WOBOs by now.//blames the 60s for shiatloads of bad ideas//this one? not so bad

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.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: abhorrent1: MaudlinMutantMollusk: It'll still taste like assAngry Buddha: MaudlinMutantMollusk: It'll still taste like assAgain for justice.Says people that probably think Yuengling is a nectar of the gods.I went looking to see if Yuengling was available here just the other day so I could try it after I saw a bunch of Farkers raving on it/alas, no Yuengling in California, it appears
Kid Lester: 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.
ChipNASA: I think a canned beer tastes like aluminum.
sn82: URAPNIS: I like Heineken.Then again, I like Coors Light too.It's like I don't even know you anymore.

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.
