I bought these to use the bottles for bottling my own. Hop taste with a dry finish, I was pleasantly surprised by this, better than Heineken.

Great for a mass produced lager. You can actually taste the hops and it has a pleasant, if slight maltiness. Dry finish. Again, a decent everyday beer.

A bit more interesting than Heineken with a dry finish and more bite, but not really all that pleasant. Not memorable.

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 (3270) - 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.
