One of the best lagers around with its distinct ’hoppyness’.

I know that my memory deceives me for this one, but I don’t care. I refuse to drink it now because I know that it will never taste as good as it did back when I would drink it. I have many good memories of this beer, but now I have moved on to others.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2008 Yellow/pale color with a fluffy white head. Pils malt aroma. A very good lager. The dual use of the cap is especially nice.

Light, pretty refreshing although not the best. Slightly skunky aroma. A little bitter. I have had worse...but I have had a lot better.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2004 In the UK, bottled lagers often cost twice as much as their draught cousins, so it’s no wonder draught is preferred by the masses. Because of this, Grolsch, which not long ago was rarely seen on draught, only in bottles, had limited appeal. The UK brewed version is not bad for a macro, but it also costs far more, so it didn’t appeal to the niche market of quality beer drinkers, and it didn’t appeal to the ‘get drunk quick’ majority either due to the price. So who drank Grolsch in pubs and bars? Trendy 20 and 30 something businessmen, who think it’s the ‘real stuff’, so to speak. People who are influenced far more by image than taste, the kind who drink bottles of American Budweiser when theres Budvar at the same price. This all seems to have changed recently, thanks to a highly visible advertising campaign, and the apparent increase in outlets of Grolsch in keg form, so it has now joined Stella Artois, Kronenborg and Carlsberg Export in the strong keg lager sector. ******* Sampled keg, bottled and canned variety (UK brewed version). A pleasant macro lager, goes down better than any of the other common pub lagers. Just don’t let this get warm, when it does, it tastes like syrupy rubbish.
