If i had to guess, you're not going to find a lot of Heineken fans here.

If you like the Euro-lager style, Samuel Smith's Organically Produced Lager is excellent.

never seen it, but i will look, and i dont drink Heineken a lot but the reason i drink it at parties and stuff is i can drink a lot of it, its not a bad taste, and its a lot better than crap like bud light and whatever other piss in a bottle people normally bring to parties lol

I like heiney for a light beer. But I'm not truly picky. I'd rather drink a Stroh's or a Shlitz if I were to go that light, but I wouldn't pass up a Heineken. Had a Stella at a hockey game once. Not bad either.

Honestly, I doubt I could tell them apart.

Both Heineken and Stella taste skunky to me. Especially Heineken. I'm not a fan.

Anheuser-Busch owns Stella. That's BMC enough for me!


Haha, kidding; somewhat. I have been known to enjoy a High Life from time to time...

Honestly, I'd rather drink Schlitz. But then I only reach for mass market lagers when pickins are slim or when I'm outdoors doing something like golf where wet and cold are all that matter. Or if it is free. My beer snobbery only engages when I'm buying.
