This was better than I’d expected. Fair malt and hops, very drinkable.

Do Europe and North America get the same version of this? It was a tasty altbier in Finland, and a bland red ale in Canada. Very curious...

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2004 Picked up a bottle of this beer for the “Hell of It”, as I never cared much for Grolsch, but it has been almost 3 years since I had a sample, and it was only $.99 a bottle. The beers color on the pour a burnished copper with a massive head that is frothy in texture and a light tan color as it evaporates the lace forms an adequate covering upon the glass. Nose is malt, clean and fresh, start is sweet, lots of malt, top cadaverous, finish is lightly acidic, lightly hopped, dry aftertaste, a “Benign” beer, and one that I suppose is suitable for a summer cookout, as it does “Wet Your Whistle”!

Nice easy drinking beer. I’d take this over the Grolsch in the green bottles in a snap. Good beer to cool off the flames of some hot chicken wings.

Much smoother tasting than I expected. No bitterness and with quite a pleasant aftertaste. Overall a great beer!

Much better than the ’other’ Grolsch beer. Good flavor; even better aftertaste. And for homebrewers - free bottles!
