General Beer Discussion by KENDO_SURF
Bought a six pack of overpriced Heineken in bottles today. Reason? It's been a very, very, long time. Nostalgia, plus curiosity.
Heineken Dark is good brew! Apparently they still make it, but it's been awhile for this one, for me.
Heinkein Dark Special isn't all that special, but I think most beer drinkers would prefer it over the green-bottle-skunk standard.
I guess? the Heineken bosses want to keep the standard brew as-as. Seems the same to me as from way back.
Envisioned conversation, Brewmaster to CEO: "Man, we can correct this skunking problem by simply improving our packaging!"
CEO: No way! 80% of our customer base associates "skunked" with "quality imported"!
I'm like that with Beck's beer what used to be my go-to 20 years ago I'll have to give it a taste again sometime just to rate it here
