I've never found Heinie to be "too" skunky. I've started buying the cans, partially because I prefer aluminum over glass, and partially because they "solve" the light-skunking issue.... I just wish they'd introduce canned Grolsch, I prefer it over Heinie.

When I think "skunky", I think Becks. I refuse to drink the stuff.

When I add lemon juice to Heinkein's, it seems to soften the skunky flavor. But, boy! I never understood what "skunky" beer was until I had Heinkeins.

I bought a mini keg earlier this year, and it was great. Had a heineken bottle at a 4july party, not so good. Amstel a little better, bottles are a bugger to cap.
Only complaint about mini keg was that it leaked about a half a coffee mug every day.
