edsspoon (303) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2014
Can - light golden with a big fluffy white head, light lacing and surprisingly sustainable. Aroma of caramel, grass and corn. Taste is grassy, lightly corny, sweet malts, caramel and a medium bitter finish. Some light spice and a hint of alcohol. Light body and a medium to strong carbonation. I didn’t think it was too bad.

330 ml bottle. Pours a clear, golden colour with a thin, short lived white head. Skunky, hoppy aroma. Flavour is malt and grass with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Light body with watery texture and average carbonation. A very average lager.

Pale golden color with white foam.Light to medium body with high carbonation,The aroma is fruity with malt notes. The same sensations perceived in the aroma are present in the taste, whith some citrus. Very balanced and refreshing.

Dacrza (484) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2014
DATE REVIEWED: May 31, 2014... GLASSWARE: 22oz. pilsner... OCCASION: today Shan and I entered the 21st century and purchased smart phones... APPEARANCE: bubbly, translucent straw-gold body that holds a soapy yet meaningful white head for a few minutes--pedestrian from a distance or close up; zero lacing... AROMA: beefy, metallic malts couple with a somewhat funky yeast profile to imbue a biscuit and cracker aroma--not aromatic, but not a turnoff... PALATE: medium-bodied, warming with heavy aftertaste; nearly water at the teeth... TASTE: yeasty, doughy and metallic, evoking a hot summer sip of the garden hose; rather easy drinking, but an aftertaste that offers gas and malt liquor sweetness...some cardboard in the finish...OVERALLL: the 16 oz. stopper-top bottle is retro cool, but no getting around the fact that the beer is pretty average at best, with a better critic suggesting this combines the less desirable traits of a pilsner and a lager--pinging and fat, so sessioning is not on the to-do list with Groslch either...on the plus side, it is fun pronouncing Grolsch correctly in front of friends and bartenders....

Daanminator (66) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2014 Grolsch, wat een fantastische bier is dit toch. Een heerlijk bittere pilsener die je met het grootste gemak wegdrinkt. Ook zijn de flesjes een lust voor het oog.

Hidden_Pooch (261) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
Aside from the cool bottle, this doesn’t have much going for it. Smells of skunk and hay, and tastes about the same. Very watery feel. Buy it for the bottle, not what is inside.
