we’ve all had it, no sense in going on and on about a beer that is just BLAH! not great, yet not horrible.

I am disappointed by this one. Many people sware by this beer, but I found it rather unappealing. It had a rather sharp taste that really didn’t go anywhere. In fact, I dumped the last bit so I could leave the casino I was at.

Not a huge beer, but a consistently fine
one. As industrially uniform as Bass in
bottles - in 35 years, I have never had two bottles of
Heineken that tasted the least
bit different. Even better on draft, but unfortunately for me,
it’s one of several beers (most of them favorites) that I cannot drink on draft because
it gives me a splitting headache. It is excellent with food.
Those who call it ’skunky’ have had WAY too much Bud Light and MGD in their time.
If you eat a half-pound of marshmallow bunnies and then have a swig of lemonade, the lemonade tastes ’sour’, too.

One of my favorites. Gets the job done faster than most beers. The price sucks, but good beer costs money.

my rating is when it comes out of a can, but from a bottle it is crap and skunky

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
More character than a Bud/Miller/Coors, but something less than a Rolling Rock. Noticeable hops, can be refreshing when cold, but nothing to go out of your way for.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2004 Overhyped...very clear appearance...crisp, but tastes skunky at times. Doesn't really taste like a lager beer...not a huge fan of it...
