    Understood. I was reinforcing your point that "everything else" is the olfactory part. That part is so strong that under carefully controlled testing we can be fooled by a wrong aroma into thinking we are eating or drinking smething we are smelling rather than what we are actually consuming.

    Ohhhh. It would appear that I was actually the one who misunderstood your meaning. Sorry about that.

    I think that's the Heineken taste profile. I really dislike Heineken a lot. I'd rather drink a BMC light beer. Inoffensive nothingness is better than a beer with a tiny bit of flavor that's terrible in my book.

    Terrible beer. Give me an American styled macro lager over any Euro pale lager every day of the week.

    The smaller bottle was one of the factors that sepertated heineken from other imports, I've been drinking heinys for years and I think the bottle change will come back to slap them in the face! Makes heineken look like a cheap budweiser, least it's not a becks saphire P.S. NEVER BUY BECKS SAPHIRE (my spelling sucks sorry) thanks for reading

    I was once high as fuck in Amsterdam and I recall drinking a Heineken Pilsner that was actually ok (for the time being). But then again, I was high as fuck.

    According to my buddy who runs a strip club in Atlanta......

    "People who used to buy Heineken are now drinking Bud Light Platinum because the blue bottle stands out more than the green bottle." Sounds ridiculous but most people just don't care whats in the bottle if they "look good" drinking it.

    It's only solid when you leave it in the freezer too long. But, whatever it takes to improve it...

    People who say Heineken is better than Budweiser is just jumping on the hate-'murica train. They both are barely adequate enough to be called average. Hell I would take a canadian Guinness over either, and that is pretty degrading.
