    What do you guys think? Heineken takes the win in my onion.

    It's a good Beer. I'm more into German Pilsners (lagers) but a Heineken goes down smooth as well.

    Ill get hated on by this, but I love Keystone Light... Kind of goes against my "beer snobbishness" but I drank it when I was poor and it still has a special place in my heart.

    eh, Keystone has it's place. I drank it when I was low on the funds as well. I think I drank an entire case of them one night...lol...couldn't do that now I'm sure.

    I have a nostalgia for canned Modelo and water; so fishing, rafting I go canned Modelo which is a light lager I believe.

    For me, I only really drink light lager in things like drinking games. Haha so for the most part it doesn't really matter. But if I had to pick one as the best, I would probably just go a traditional route and say Natural Light. :eek:

    Good as well! I can't get it here, but a buddy found one in his fridge after a party he had. He knows I appreciate beers I've never had and gave it to me. I really liked it!

    Some other judges and I once got together and did a blind tasting of 15 or so National brands of American Lagers. The winner was PBR.

    What are some examples of "light lagers" when I see that I think Bud Light, Coors Light, Miller Lite, etc.

    Those are "extra" light lagers :D

    Personally, I think Hinnekin tastes like "Hiney". Ive always viewed it as mainstream comercial import pisswater. Many better choics out there. No offence to fans of it though.

    As far as light lagers are concerned, I actually prefer Carlsberg to Heineken.

    Heineken has always been a bit skunky for my tastes. Although I hear fresh Heineken is great.

    this! :D :D

    Same here, seems like every time I get one it's skunky....

    I don't believe I've ever had one that didn't taste skunky to me. I'm guessing that's how it's supposed to taste and that my palate just isn't refined enough to appreciate it. Surely it's not as refined as that of my brother, who would drink nothing other than Southpaw before Heineken became a symbol of his improved status in the world.

    I assaulted a pack of Sierra Nevada Summerfest lagers over the weekend. The nose was full of grass and citrus from the hops with a hint of sweet malt. A very nice crisp lager... Which I followed up with by drinking regular Millers.
