Woof.
the same reason BMC drinkers describe all dark beers as Guinness-like and compare all hoppy beers to triple-hopped Miller Lite: ignorance.

Marketing. Green bottles = imported > domestic, according to the masses.

I refuse to believe that. If they get skunky at all, it's due to handling during shipping and storage.

Heineken is all one of my neighbors will drink, after tasting some of my homebrews, he can,t even give them away to the other neighbors. I do my best to pass on them even if they are free, or I have to walk a block back to my place.
