Never had it when it wasn’t skunky, looks great sitting in that bottle though. As low as I’ll go before I start drinking wine.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2004 (Amendded review) I must be getting used to this stuff. Due to the lack of choices available in PR Heineken is usually what I drink. Better than the alternatives and not a bad Lager.

If you can find fresh Heinies consider yourself lucky. When or if you do, it is definately worthwhile. Otherwise, SKUNK CITY.

Skunky, funky. Marginally drinkable when very cold. They’ve done a great job of selling an image. Now they should get to work on the beer.

I have had the pleasure of drinking Heineken for years, and enjoy it. I think amateur drinkers confuse skunk for aroma. American domestic beers taste like water, which has no smell.

All this talk of skunk, surely it can’t be happening to everyone who reviews. I’ve only drunk a few bottles but never noticed it. I’ve drunk many European pilsners from green bottles and can only recall one occasion when I got a bad one. I tatsed the draft for this review and while not quite enough hops was a decent lager.
