First tried in a trendy cave in Seattle where the atmosphere, noise and smoke made this brew seem beautiful in its perfect glass. The the classic design, compelling name, novice accolades and night scene successfully masked this beer's true nature.
Scene 2 (fast forward 3 years)
Purchased six-pack (bottles) from QFC for a laid back dinner party...
In the kitchen, mulling about, no room in the fridge, put it on the counter with the rest of the guest beer: West Coast microbrews, a 12-pack (bottles) of Heineken, and my six allegedly good Stella Artois.
I see a friend reaching for a Heineken and give him a good natured "HEINEKEN!? F#$% THAT S!@#". (Said friend is known for buying the cheapest beer possible but he's been steadily upgrading, as in: going from <shudder> Black Label to Schmidt to Busch Ice to Miller to Heineken.)
Here I am, giving my beer buddy grief about his Heineken p%## water and I, an alleged amateur connoisseur, am purveying a Heineken clone in sheep's clothing...
This beer is very pedestrian and predictable. Skunky and unsatisfying. I could not identify any flavor in this beer except overwhelming acidic skunk. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice...
