Instantly dying head. Richer malt than other Dutch lagers (tending toward butterscotch, but wisely holds back) with hints of hop flavor. I find some unexpectedly considerable bitterness too. Really not bad.

Nice pour, with a very large bone-white head with decent retention. Aroma is very pilsnery; not my favorite. When I tasted this beer, a very metallic flavor came through, and that not-so-pleasant taste stayed around for quite some time. It's not THAT bad - I'm just not a big pilsner fan.

'Different' but nice sort of aroma. Reasonably bland sour flavour with fairly creamy palate.

A great tasting, malty, hoppy beer that's smooth and crisp. Too expensive for my every day beer drinking, but a nice occasional treat.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - MAY 29, 2003
Very clean ordinary lager. Drinkable, but the bottle is far more spectacular.

boquet of ethyl mercaptan reminds me of driving through Berlin NH back before they cleaned up the paper mills.

Every time I have had a Grolsch Lager, it has had a pungent skunky scent and bad after-taste.

aroma is a little skunky. Taste slightly bitter. Overall a boring lager with not much to offer.I agree that it tastes better in amersterdam
