Heineken rules

Heineken rules eh? I wonder what the Heineken rules would be... (world gets all wavy as harp music plays)
1) Thou shalt make a thin yet harsh, watery and fizzy product! (Boom!)
2) Skunking shall be applied liberally and freely in green bottles! (Boom!)
3) Sellist thou a crappy typical Eurolager with little or no hop or malt presence and dupest thou the public into paying premium prices! (Boom!)
Now go from the mount and spread ye wild with advertising!

That's a really bad statement to post around here. You could have you Heiney kicked for such ludicrous remarks!

I actually like to drink it while eating slightly sour flavored foods, like some cheeses. It's also not bad with dark chocolate, the more bitter, the better.

Heine is really only good if it comes from a tap from a fresh keg. It's not supposed to be skunky, at least that what a friend of mine from Finland says. When I have had it at a favorite restaurant of mine (Oyster Company), it has always tasted much improved from the bottle delivered version. Anyways, it isn't as good as Pilsner Urquell.

Oh yeah, have you guys tried Bavaria. Its a cheaper knock off of Heine that is also from Holland. It runs for about 9.00 US for a twelve. Its a good friend pleaser that I can handle when I run out of IPA or Stout.
Turn it up.

I tried Heineken recently for the first time in years. I was at a party where three beers were available: Heineken, Steinlager, and Stella Artois. My favorite of the lot was the Steinlager. But there are better pilsners, even in New Zealand. The Shakespeare Tavern, in downtown Auckland, has at least two very hoppy variations on the style.

I have always noticed a slight taste of mold or a cheesy taste. Not a bad beer but it has a different taste to it.
