Default Dark Heine's

Has anyone seen Heineken Dark Lager lately I haven't found one in ages?

Do they still make them?

I have not seen them.

I know a girl who's husband works at Heineken and helped get the Heineken Light rolling out the door. I'll ask her if she can ask him whats up.

I'm pretty sure I saw it last week. I didn't buy it. I didn't give it a second look. So, I may have made this up. Jury's still out.

i see them at Sweet Bay and pretty much any liquor store. Maybe its a regional thing?

I dunno if its the same, but in Holland we called them brown stars (as opposed to red star heinekens)

cant honestly tell you if its the same or if its any good. bad weekend in Holland

I've seen them lately, but after trying a 6er of Becks dark, I just can't force myself to try it. I bet it tastes like skunk ass.

Been licking skunk butt again? You'd think you'd learn after the first two times.

Seriously though, Heine of any flavor pretty much blows.

I am always one to check out as many Dark Heine's as I can. I'd prolly go into cardiac arrest if I came across a six pack that had any interest in a white boy.

Oh, wait, not those huh?
