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.

A decent beer for everyday drinking. Not great but better than a lot of stuff that’s out there.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 Bottle, best by 29APR2005 drank on 2MAY2005: What a differance three days can make. I looked at my old rating, a shitty 1.0. I described nothing. I can do better now. Light hazy yellow with a thin, small-bubbled white head, smells like corn and sweet yeast (side note: This bottle is not lightstruck in any way, unless it was done at the factory, as I tore this out of a encased twelve 12 oz bottle pack), watery, thin, not enough hops to interest a starving bee. After like five minutes under this lights it tastes skuncked. Freaking unbelievable. Old rating: A step above Budcoorsmiller, however a step below being drinkable. Thin, weak skunky taste. Save the bottle and give it to a homebrewer.

Grolsch is a fantastic all rounder. Light whilst full of flavour and served in a bottle that is a pleasure to drink from - Very easy to get sozzled on.
