I usually avoid any beer in green glass bottles....due to the skunk quality that green glass is famous for....almost every beer in green glass reeks of skunk...yes, eventually is fades once opened...but why ruin a good beer with a poor bottle? I realize appearance is part of marketing....but can't they fix the light damage issue? Clear glass too...
"The smell is the product of the chemical reaction that takes place in the bottle when bright light strikes the hops, creating what's technically known as "light struck" beer. The reaction is stronger with paler and hoppier beers. The resulting chemical is identical to that in a skunk's defense system, and light-struck beer puts off one of the most powerful aromas around."
Moosehead is famous for this...it is an otherwise ok beer...but that smell ruins it for me.
