I was surprised by how skunky this lager was, I just wasn't expecting it. Other than that, it was clean and is a beer I look forward to drinking again.

mass produced skunky lager that is very unimpressionable definitely not the worst thing i have ever drank but not very far away

This is one of my favorite macro brews. It's definitely has the skunk effect to it , but it you can't taste it as much as the can. The canned version is a far superior to the bottled version of this brew

A global brand the equal of Guinness, Bud, or Fosters. The beer doesn't exit me much. Other it purhaps come at some expense to the taste and flavour, its purhaps one of the most consistent performes on the world tour.

It is slightly better than the average macro. I was unimpressed with the appearance, although it poured a decent head. The flavor was all right. It was very light, slightly bitter, but not skunky. It did get better as the beer warmed up.

Wouldn't be bad if it didn't have such a bitter aftertaste. It is pretty smooth and nice apperance. But like i said its bittertaste kills this beers chance.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2003
31/3 draught: Highly carbonated, bubbly white head. Clear yellow liquid. Very slight skunky hop aroma. Smooth, though very thin. Slight malt sweetness with astringent bitter taste.

Pretty skunky taste, but has good color and not bad body. Fruity, grassy aroma. Definetely over-hyped, but still not worst you can do.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2005 Ah, one of Europe’s finest exports to the U.S.! Well, no. But as I was thrown back to a period many months ago when I was drinking a lot of international lagers, I was struck by...struck by...aw, hell, this stuff is so bloody boring it isn’t worth additional comment here, except to say that you could do much much worse. // Re0rate with same score. I just had two bottles of it atop the Hotel Washington on 15th Street, which overlooks the Treasury Building, the White House, and the monuments. Great great view. Mediocre beer.

I've never understood what the big deal was with Heineken. It smells to me like horse feed. And it doesn't taste a whole lot better. A cold Heineken tastes about as good as a warm Miller High Life does. And it costs three times as much! Go figure!
