UPDATED: OCT 31, 2007 For some reason Grolsch is just not my kind of beer. The skunky nose and the dry finish. While some of their other brews are quite ok, i prefer a regular Heineken above this one.

Cool top thats about it.

Nice golden color with a light white head. Aroma a little sour and hoppy, with a taste exactly the same. Very average in all respects though it looses points in palate because the bitterness builds a big loogie in the back of your throat. But I guess the cool bottle makes up for it.

OK beer. Did any of you guys notice they changed the pop-top from ceramic to plastic about ten years ago. cheap bastards.

Brewsoc99 (29) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 11, 2002
Very typical of Dutch lager style. High hop aroma, and lightish body. Refreshing. You can’t beat those old swing style earthen-ware caps!

BarePaw (148) - Pullman, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2003 A bit light, but with a very bitter flavor. I like the aroma, and the bottles are great for those of us who homebrew.

Booooring. Typical lager - but lsightly better than average. Certainly better than American lager.

Norton (333) - Southside, Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2002
Zing! Crisp, clean. Goes down WELL. Can have one of the most unruly stanky sewery stenches around, but not detrimental to taste for the most part. Nice dry aftertaste with a bit of a fine malty grain flavor. Everyone I know feels obligated to keep the stopper bottles. It’s a nice gimmick.

I wasn’t even lucky enough to get mine in a cool bottle (but I was lucky not to get a skunked one). Typical Lager attributes. Dry flavor with minimal hops.
