goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 26, 2002
The pour produced a skunky aroma that filled the room, a straw yellow, fizzy body, and a moderate white head that left minimal lacing. Initial taste had some of the skunky aroma on the tongue, but it got less annoying after that. Ending was quite dry.

Frank (3197) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2002
A soon as I opened the flip-top bottle, I was hit by a massive burst of skunk. However, once the beer was poured, it lost the skunky aroma almost entirely and, unlike that other widely available Dutch lager, Grolsch isn’t the least bit disgusting aside from this initial whiff of skunk. What it is, however, is boring. Straw color, mostly diminishing head, fizzy carbonation. Somewhat watery. Nothing incredibly offensive but a bit of hops in the finish is about all this beer has going for it.

A strong but pleasant bitterness, fantastic golden color with nice lager head.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 21, 2002
Smells very skunky, almost intended. Hop taste with a dry finish. Pour is not very impressive and appearence is that of a normal lager. The taste is ok if you like the skunky taste, but it was hard to get out of my mouth afterwards. Kind of annoying.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2002
I had this on tap in London. It was definitely a pleasant surprise after canned and bottled versions in the US. Plenty of sweet malt and bitter, floral hops. Nothing great, but more than the sum of its parts.

Cartoonkhaki (1221) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2002
Has a strong pungient skunky aroma that I love. Its good warm. It isn’t that bad.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - DEC 13, 2002
Sweet lemony flavor plays well against a slightly bitter hoppy crispness. Maybe a little too sweet overall.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2003 Not the greatest aroma and a mediocre foamy head. Tastes alright, but nothing spectacular. It does come in a cool bottle though.
