Smells really funny with hints of skunk like aroma...seriously. :shock:

I'm curious what hops they use to come up with this smell.

Yes, that's the Sunlightingreenglass variety and it seems to grow very well in sunny climates.

Yep. I believe Heineken buys all the crop that Grupo Modelo doesn't use for Corona.

Heineken in a can or a sealed 12 pack is good though.

For my 40th birthday my wife took me to Amsterdam where we visited the Heineken brewery. We both left there feeling as though we were in a Heineken commercial. The beer was ok but as far as brewery tours go this was by far the worst. I do have to say if you were stoned, which in Amsterdam is legal, then looking at all the flashy green lights would be fun. Ha, ha!
