Another of the many pale lagers. This one is not too bad. I drank this when I was a kid. I used to think this was high end as all my friends were drinking PBR and Budweiser! Corn aroma and taste. Pale look in glass,

Not much to be said. Tastes like a lager. Cool bottle. Malty, faint herbal hops. Clear, weak head, thin body. I highly recommend their marketing department.

Swing top bottle. Poured into a stemmed pilsner glass. Clear deep gold color. Mostly light malt aroma. Pleasantly crispness,simple uncomplex flavour. Refreshing and cleansing palate. A little bit of hoppiness in the finish. Okay for a pale lager.

Bierdimpfe (51) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2015
Brilliant straw color. White 2 finger head, dead in 2 minutes, subtle activity with average legs. Faint corn, fruity, skunky and metallic aromas and flavors. Well balanced between sweet and bitter, but almost tasteless. Light slick body with nice carbonation. Pleasant well balanced bitter finish ending with smoky skunk feel. Very acid. Overall : Well balanced beer with good freshness but way too bland in flavors.

Thinking of Grolsch, I always imagine a crisph, bitter Pils, I dont know why, the bottle somehow promises that. And every time I’m disappointed again, as this is the most boring lager ever. Pfu!

Bottle @home tasting General Election 2015 ((rating backlog, it’s the wifes)) Pours golden, big head white, heavy carbonated. Nose is grassy but other than that quite bland. Slight lemon and minerals on the taste. ok.

Pours a pale yellow body, with a thin white cap, aroma was skunky & sweet, the beer is kinda watery and tasted skunky. I am not a fan of this or most beers from Holland, they all seem to be fairly similar with regards to taste, smell ect. This aptly named beer tastes kinda like it sounds- g r o l s c h.

Cheap lager for the people. I’m totally surprised to have found it at a Craft Beer Expo. No comments.

Nogal een fletse pils. Weinig smaak en geen schuimkraag. Wel een goede kleur.
