2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I used to be a big fan of this stuff. Boy have times changed. Actually it is not that bad when you compare it to the other major brews in its class. Ok head which does not last long. Light gold/straw color. Slight aroma of nothing special (non skunky). Light crisp taste with a smooth, clean finish. A decent lager for the price.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
