UPDATED: AUG 10, 2003 Ok not the worst beer I have had but not good. Kind of a mass market Import. It is the yuppie import or is that Heiney. Anyhow if faced with choice of this or a schlits go for this. Otherwise don't let the cool bottle fool ya.

When I opened this beer while talking to my teenage son I initially thought the smell (aroma) had come from him. Upon examination it was the beer. YUK. Skunky, hoppy taste. not a good beer. Keep looking

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2003 Nice color, but the head disappeared quickly. But this beer tastes good. Its a little metallic but has a rich taste and a soft finish with some bitterness.

Had from 5 liter mini-keg on July 12th, 2003 - Day 12 of Blake's Beer Month™
I really hadn't planned on having Grolsch as part of my beer month - especially with Kalamazoo Bells', Victorys and 2 Traquair House Jacobite Ales sitting in the fridge, but due to a short trip away from the house, and away from my beers, this was all I was left with. The beer has a weak aroma, not much to it, with the taste being similar. While the beer has a good golden coloring to it, it's nothing special in the least with a taste that is crisp, but seems watered down. Perhaps a re-rate is in order out of something other than a 5 liter keg, but I can't see myself liking this beer much - just devoid of any true taste or substance.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2004 Good beer witha good aftertaste. I’d call it a glorified Heineken but it has a unique bottle and tasted relativly good. Nothing special.

Grolsch has got that musty, dry pilsner taste that always puts me off. Available cheap in the UK, and a good buy compared to the other premium lagers like Kronenbourg and Stella.

Cool bottle, not bad taste. Crisp on the palate, with nice head. A tad hoppy but that's fine with me. Give it a go.

Tart and very refreshing, typical musty, malty nose. Tingly hop action. Hit the spot. Nice looking head. Far better than I expected.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2003 I buy this stuff for the bottles so I can bottle my homebrew. Nice light hop aroma, mild lager flavors, light malt, light hop bitterness. Lack of pronounced malt flavor of german or Czec lagers suggests rice is used. Not a bad beer, certainly a big step up from most American/Canadian/Oz lagers, but one that I can't fall in love with because it is too light. Tastes like a light version of a German lager (St Pauli Girl, Bitsburger, etc).
