Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2008
500 ml can. Pale golden and crystal clear. Slightly papery aroma with a hint of grass and citrus. Obviousy, from the aroma, a bit stronger than your average pale lager. Feels rich. Medium-bodied. Not that high carbonation level, but still crisp. Balances nicely, but this is definitely not a particularly interesting beer. Dull. Uses high alpha hops for bitterness.

robertjm (836) - Albany, California, USA - JUL 22, 2008
(Purchased at Babusha’s Russian Deli, in Walnut Creek, CA) Didn’t make much of a noise when the cap was popped, but it did create a large head. Amber body. Aroma actually reminds me of warmed ketchup (strange I know, but that’s what came to mind). Flavors clearly on the side of malt. Not really much hop character really obvious there. Not a bad beer at all considering its one of the Eastern European pilsners, which are usually very watery and taste all the same. The flavor leads me to believe it would hold its own against a really heavy curry.

Can. Golden with a large foam. Aromas are sweet grain and caramel with Peppery and alcohol notes. Flavours are grain and corn with buttery notes. Quite viscous with alcohol and a kind of fruitiness on the finish. Average.

Grovlam (4198) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2008

Light bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Light to moderated sweet flavor with light bitterness. Sweet grassy like finish.

Rated:june 2007
Bottle brown,500 ml
Appearance: head is weak and quickly disappearing, body is dark yellowish to bright orange, quite clean, carbonation is weak, quite quickly going off, aroma is weaker than Zywiec lager beer, citrusy notes, slightly of lemon and honey, hops in aroma almost non existant. Flavour: at first sip you notice that the beer is drinkable, not much carbonation, very low accidity, no bitterness, very low hops in content, definetely towards malty sweetness, bisquity but in weacker way than Zywiec lager and not much dry. The malted barley is in its hints seeming even similar to Czech pilseners but the beer is not such aromatic and prominent in flavour, after 4 minutes hed disappear wholly. You can feel alcohol at finish.
