Can. This is the beer you tasted when your father let you taste beer for the first time when you were a kid. Bitter, unremittingly dry, and definitely defines "an acquired taste." I can just picture the look of revulsion on my young face if I tried this beer for the first time as a child. It would be enough to scare off a kid from ever drinking beer again. However, now that I have indeed acquired a taste for beer, I can appreciate this brew for what it is: a typical Dutch beer, extremely dry and surprisingly drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
,5l pour from tap into a pint glass at a bar in Kazakhstan. Clear, yellow, super fluffy off-white head. Muted nose, bitter bordering on burnt. Body is medium, a bit grainy. Taste is bitter, woody, a bit bready. Leans heavy on being bitter without offering much balance or flavor.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml can. Somehow I went all these years ignoring Grolsch. I missed out on nothing. Pours a pale fizzy yellow with a one finger white head. Lots of sugary notes aroma-wise, sweet malt, light candy, icing sugar, with some faint straw and a REALLY faint resinous note. Taste wise, sweet up front with mild mineral notes, light Wonderbread like notes into faint fruitiness, mineral notes, and a pretty tame finish. For what it costs, it’s fine, if maybe a little sweet, but there are SO many other cheap Euro-pilsener’s out there that blow this away for me to consider it again.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.45 l bottle purchased at a random Tesco. Golden colored, with quickly disappearing head. Sweet aroma & taste. Not refreshing and not so good imo.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crap beer -- but for the price it’s 4/5 stars. So while I rate it as not that good--on a cost-adjusted basis it’s fucking amazing. I drink it all the time. and it lists its ingredients which immediately means I prefer it to most north american beers which are, as far as I can tell, carbonated corn syrup.
