Well it is good if you are on a budget, and it is better than Heineken. However it is good on a hot day, and compaired to most commercial lagers it is better.

Bought some of the massive 1.5 litre bottles. One of the best mainstream Lagers in my opinion. Good head, nice palate. I bet if it was brewed by some Belgium micro-brewery, everyone would give it 15+ out of 20. But it's a popular beer, so the beer snobs seem to dislike it.

good cheapish beer. If drinking more than 'just a couple' then this could be worthwhile.

I have to admit, I bought this one for the bottle. And the bottle was the best part.

My father who is a hunter used to have skunk oil (the extract that skunks produce and spray) to cover his scent trail in the would. Now I know that stuff was actually Grolsch. It definatly distinctly has the strong odor of skunk. It didn't taste that bad though which was suprising. I just couldn't take the smell.

I had a roommate in college who was obsessed with this stuff. I think it was because it had stoppers instead of caps, he thought that it made it better. I put this in the class of Becks/Heineken, the skunky European import beers. A little pricey to give to friends but they are always impressed caused it has those damn stoppers.

On the bitter side for my taste. Still a very refreshing bitter beer that is best served ice cold on a hot day.

Strong flavor for a lite colored beer. Comes on strong and fades slowly.

A yellow beer with an OK yet fast disappearing head. The aroma malty and hoppy with hints of sourness. The flavor is watery at first then the malt-sweetness hits You - and it is nice for a lager and then it ends on a rounded OK bitterness. A very average beer experience - drink it as a thirst quencher - but for that it is too expensive outside of Holland.
