Pale golden color with a medium thick white creamy head. Sour bitter aroma. Slightly sour, bitter well-balanced flavor with a bitter hoppy finish.

After Further Review, I have come to like this as my favorite lager beer. This is probally because it has a nice ’bready’ taste instead of the blandness of most American Lagers. Try it if you want a different taste in a Lager. The Swingtop bottles got me interested in this beer, but the taste keeps me drinking it. :-)

If you get a fresh non skunky one, not bad. Much better than Heiny and most Canadian commercial beers aye.

The only thing special about this lager is the cool swing cap. The beer is mediocre, but it’s a step up (albiet, a tiny one) from Heineken. Worth buying just to add the bottle to the collection.

Perhaps I got a bad batch, but this wasn’t a very good lager.

An averaage international lager. Often comes in a useful flip-top bottle and quality fluctuates.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Sept, 2002 Grolsch do make a range of beers, some of which are apparently very good, but the one for which they are known is this fancy green bottled swing top lager. The current advertising emphasises the lagering process with the line: ’We only let you drink it when it’s ready.’ As with so many heavily advertised products this is a case of image over content. Not that the drink is bad - it’s an acceptable global lager with a decent malt body which finishes with a stewed bitterness but is otherwise quite refreshing when drunk cold - it’s just that it aint that good. Great bottle - shame about the lager![1.9]
June, 2003 Good malty body. Upped a few points. [2.2]
Feb, 2006 Keg @ <a href=http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/11/117 White hart, Drury Lane. A cool, biting lager with some noticable hop bitterness. Drinkable, if a bit fizzy. [2.3]
