Heineken Light is one of my swills-of-choice when I want to delude myself into thinking I'm not putting empty calories into my tank. I actually tolerate this beer *more* than the regular Heineken, but perhaps that's because there's "less of it to hate," or, restated, it isn't strong enough to smell like a skunk, which Heineken so often does. So why do I dabble in it? you might (intelligently) ask, and it would be an excellent question. The insufficient answer: Because I'm willing to fool myself into drinking diet soda as a zero-calorie caffeinated beverage - why *not* Heineken Light as a low-calorie beer? That said, there is some of the trademark Heineken skunk aroma, but not nearly as much as what's in their regular brew, so I not only get less calories - I actually dislike it less (you will not get me to state that in the contrapositive, no matter how logically you might argue). Heineken Light is available in poor stores everywhere, for about $13-14 per twelve-pack. I'll say something right now that you'll hear me say - perhaps in variations - in the future: If it's available in CVS, then it, by that very definition, is a lousy, mass-produced, industrial product. I won't go to Safeway, or Giant, or 7-11 just yet, because there's no need, but make no mistake: Drinking Heineken Light for alcohol is the equivalent of drinking Coca-Cola for corn syrup and caffeine, and don't think for a moment that this isn't true. --- Lurkers: Join our damned website and comment, damn it.
