A completely unremarkable pilsner. Has some decent taset qualities, but nothing great. Below mediocre.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 7, 2004
I only buy this beer to get the wire cap bottle for homebrewing. This is the most endearing thing about the lager. Because the bottle is green, oftentimes, the Grolsch that I buy in the supermarket has been photosensitized. At least they put the amber in brown bottles.

DUbrew (49) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2004
Tastes a little bit like heineken. The head is weak and dissapates fast. The taste is hoppy and grassy.

anickell (14) - Aberdeen, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2004
Typical pilsner from the Netherlands. Very similar in aroma to Heineken, although Heineken remains superior. Golden color, somewhat thin head. Extraordinarily fruity/sweet feel, with a nearly metallic finish. A bit too carbonated.

JFGrind (2035) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2004
I think this was the first time I had Grolsh on draft. Egajdzis and I did the side by side taste test with a draft of PBR. Poured a golden color with a thin white head, much like the Pabst. However, Grolsh had a smoother taste and aroma then PBR.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2004
1.5 litre bottle, Clear golden with a big white pillowy head. Some malt and hops in the aroma. Flavour is fairly simple, some malt then some hops, quite long lasting hops. Pleasant enough and the empty bottles are great for making flavoured vodkas or oils.

egajdzis (6371) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2004
Draft... Poured a golden color with a small white head and surprisingly nice lacing. Sweet malty aroma. Sweet malty taste, this is not bad on draft, as opposed to the previous samples I have had in the green bottle. My sample here was not skunked at all. Not bad, and it won the side by side tasting I had with PBR.

Nice dutch pilsener. Easy to drink. Little more bitter then other dutch pilseners. Refreshing beer. Best with chinese food on sunday evening!

UPDATED: APR 26, 2004 Typical pale green bottle lager. Drinkable, but nothing to get excited over.

Choos (753) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2004
Aroma is musty hops with hay. Appearance is pale golden yellow totally clear with a small head that shrinks to a ring around the edges and leaves some lacing close to the level of the beer. Sweet mild lager that gives way to a slightly hoppy aftertaste with cidery notes particulary when exhaling. Thin mouthfeel with typical macro lager amount of carbonation. Reminiscent of a sweet mild Carlton Draught.
