The cool bottle doesnít quite do it. An OK lager, but thereís better for the same price.

I donít what it is, but lately Iíve really been enjoying the lagers. I really canít pick out anything extraordinarily special about this beer, but I really enjoyed its simple taste and exceptional crispenss. Iíve also determined that lagers go really well with great Italian food.

Nate (3792) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2005 Standard aroma of European green-glass lager. A tad sweet with a nice bit of skunkiness to it. Light rubbery, beany hops. Airy. Bright golden yellow clear, with foamy white lacing head. Medium-light watery body with dull medium carbonation. Not very crisp at all. Starts with decent sweet maltiness, but quickly tempered by beany skunky hops. Light floral hoppiness, but mainly dull sulfur-like taste with mild carbonic acidity. Not crisp. Not clean. Finish is mildly bitter for a while, but quickly is replaced by a corny sweet taste on the back of the mouth and throat. Definitely drunk very cold.

Not too shabby at all. This is a very nice lager, not too weak, but not too strong.

Not keen on this. Nice bottle but the chemical taste and aroma, coupled with the headaches steer me elsewhere!

neilrichards (191) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2002
I love the hoppy twang that grolsch gives. More flavoursome than many others for that reason. At any time, this makes for a tastey and refreshing lager.
