Oderifous skunkiness! Nice big head diminishes rather quickly. Slight lacing. Pale yellow color. Oily mouthfeel, kind of like drinking olive oil. It's alright, I guess.

Hrm, I'm not sure about this one. Skunky armoa. Bright straw yellow with a nice white head that fades quick. Pleasant, slightly better than average lager. No more, no less.

beastdog75 (363) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2003
Tastes like a cheap Euro lager. Husky flavor with some mild citric fruitiness and some average hop bitterness. Does nothing to distinguish itself from the Heineken/Beck's crowd.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2003 From nice bottles come an ordinary blonde lager. It's well-balanced and done, but simple and ordinary.

mikeben (355) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2003
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

rlgk (18187) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2003
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.

Blake (396) - Orange, California, USA - JUL 13, 2003
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.
