Fresh hoppy aroma, fluffy white head. Nice balance of hops and malt in the mouth but quite thin in the aftertaste.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 5, 2002
Bit surprised at the high (well, average anyway) ratings for this one. Pretty poor beer if you ask me, and no it donít get no points for the cool bottles (though I love them). Very clear light amber color -- looks thin and tasteless as it is -- though it has a nice head. Aroma more than a little skunky, but some fresh hay and hops do sneak in. Flavor/palate full of sweet corn but also a nasty stale sourness that comes on as it goes down; then the good and bad disappear in a very small finish with just a hint of metal. Overall, it just proves that the Dutch are no better at cheap lagers than the Belgians.

This is a pretty good lager. It has a rather hoppy aroma with a bit of bite. And the bottle is unique!

Regular Grolsch is forgettable but the Premium is better. I had a friend who used to drink this stuff all time. I sure do miss that guy.
