Ah, the poster child of the skunky green bottle brew. Funny how you order something in a bar that they don't have, the always say "But we have Heineken." Like that's a good thing? Skunky, watery and metalic tasting. I still have one every once in a while, even though I know better.

Slightly fruity with hops. Golden, sparkling hue. Bitter taste with a hint of smoke. Dry palate.

Malakin (470) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2004
Nasty commercial beer. Smells bad, tastes bad and it's not particularily cheap.

Light colored lager with a head that dies quickly. Weak and watery with a bit of a kick in the finish.

Rare to find one that isn't skunked. Might be drinkable if they'd put the damn thing in a dark bottle. It's a malty beer when you try to taste through the skunk. Some metallic things happening in there that are rather unpleasant as well.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2004
UPDATED: APR 21, 2004 Why do people bring me this for parties? Time to stop the BYOB policy!Metallic and Thin. Bad bite and high skunk factor = NOT good.

Not as full-flavoured as I oncce remembered, but it's invigorating taste will delight the cold-filtered-loving set. Spanner.

hershiser2 (2049) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Golden yellow, with fluffy head that shrinks quicker than Rick Moranis' kids. Smell is a bit skunky, but somehow, I don't mind it that much. Taste is on the skunky side too, but not overwhelming like some skunky beers can be (see Crapona, err Corona). Nothing special about Mr. Mouthfeel.

Pretty clear stuff; no head...this looked rather like apple juice. It has that weird Dutch flavour/aroma which I can't put my finger on but these are nowhere near as evident as they are in many similiar beers. Basically this has been brewed in order to convince the masses of their being chic. Far from "bad" but also far from "great". Drinkable.
