Bernsteinfarben mit wenig Schaum. Verhaltenes Malzaroma. Dünner Antrunk. Malzig, Karamell und leicht nussig im Geschmack. Der wenige Hopfen hat auch ne Alunote. Unterdurchschnittlich.

Bottled. Amber colour small white head. Aroma is fruity, caramelly, mild bitterness along with some slight metallic notes as well. Flavour is fruity, earthy, mild metallic notes as well as some caramel and sweet grains. Balanced. For being "bulk" it’s not all too bad. Quite dry and only mildly "metallic" aftertaste.

Bif (1380) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Bottle- Pours an amber color with a nice head that fades slowly to lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and not much else. Mild taste of roasted malt and caramel sweetness. There is a mild bitterness and a dry finish. medium body, some and creamy like texture. Nice balance. Nice amber that goes down easy. Good for a few.

Metalchopz (2198) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2012
Originally rated August 2004. Grolsch Amber Ale poured a dark amber colour, with a good lasting cream-foam off-white head. Lightly carbonated, it had great lacing. Aromas are mostly of sweet malt. Taste was slightly bitter with a smooth caramel finish. A pretty good session red ale.

It isn’t that bad, get it fresh because it is in a clear bottle. But the quality was surprising.

Elwood (3022) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Serving: 12 oz. bottle. Appearance: Clear amber color with a foamy, white head. Okay head retention. Aroma: Malty nose with hints of grain and caramel. A touch of euro lager. Flavor: Closely follows the nose with some decent back bitterness. Mostly malt and light caramel notes though. Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium-light mouthfeel and a medium, slightly bitter finish. Overall: There are better ambers out there.
