Default Good idea from Heineken

Now, I don't really like heineken, but you have to give it up for some good packaging:

I usd to purchase "Party Fass" (party kegs) from my local gasthouses in Germany and it only cost me 8 Euros ($9.60 at the time)...and I reuse the kegs.

Heineken for $20 is NOT a deal at all unless you're Heineken...I know my brew costs a lot less than that even on my small scale...they're just racking in the dough...

The big question I have: without the time in sun-drenched green bottles, how do they get that trademark skunk-juice character into it? I wonder if they have special skunk extract that they add to the boil, or whether they just lager it in clear tanks that are located outside.

I havent personally tried this out of the mini keg, but when I have had fresh heineken out of a keg, it is nothing like it is out of the bottle, and is actually kind of good.

Yeah, a good idea from Heineken would be to put their beer in brown bottles so it doesn't taste like sunk ass.

Heineken is actually quite tasty out of the can, but I totally agree that that bottles are usually pretty bad. I've had those mini-kegs before and they're good; better than the canned beer. Those kegs have been around quite a while; at least a couple of years.

So if you get one of these kegs is it skunk also?

Man, my palate must be shot cause I loves me some Heineken. Speaking of skunky green bottles though, Rolling Rock must have the worst case of skunk out there.
