UPDATED: FEB 21, 2008 Had it at the brewery in Amsterdam (fresh) and it was one of the best beer drinking days that I have ever had. It can get ’skunky’ in the US however.

Who knows what this beer may be like in a different color bottle. The Skunk Factor definitely defines this beer.

You know, i know guys that tell me that this is the best beer made! I look at them and sneer. It seems that almost every bottle I’ve had has that notorius Skunk smell going. For gods sake put on a silly freshness date.

This beer sucks donkey nuts. The aftertaste is horrible and it doesn’t go down smooth. Settle for a domestic like Michelob.

This is anaverage beer at the most, as for imports. To me it taste like a lighter more bitter version of becks/st pauli girl when its real bad it has a slight pond water taste to it. For the price u can do alot better , alot of people i know who dont drink alot think this stuff is the shit... shows u wahtkind of preppy beer this is.

Sometimes this is a nice alternative, when all you have to choose from is Bud and Lite. Don’t expect much from it, and you might be surprised. Fairly hoppy, slight ’skunk’ nose.

I really don’t like this beer. overrated in every way, very similar to carlsberg. the green bottle sure doesn’t help much... fairly skunky and unremarkable. pass

I usually do not drink lagers, but this one has a nice dry bite to it. I enjoyed this lager.

My opinion on Heineken varies based on what mood I am in and how it is being served. Heineken in a can is aweful. Warm Heineken will make you never taste it again. On the other hand a cold Heineken out of the tap is excellent. I like the appearance in a glass and hate the green bottle. A lot of uncertainty with me on this beer, more than any other.

A great beer yet definetly a desired taste I can see why some would like it. ’Skunky’ This is the beer that started me to inquire a taste for different beers.
