330 ml (11.2 oz) bottle. The brewery has changed from the 12 oz bottle for the US market to the international 330 ml bottle. Pours a deep golden color with a white head and lively carbonation. The packaging says "premium quality two hop recipe". These days, that does not mean much, but it got my attention. The aroma is of barley malt and quite clean. The flavor is a lot fuller than the Grolsch that I remember with a much thicker and better mouthfeel. The hop bitterness has also been increased, but the thing that stands out the most is that I am not picking up on those characteristic Dutch esters which you used to get in Grolsch and still get in Heineken. This is a much better version of the beer and worth retasting if you have not had one in some time. The brewerys website calls this "Premium Pilsner" although the label on the bottle still reads "Premium Lager". A very nice commercial Pils which in my opinion is far better than most across the border in Germany which have original gravities which are so low that you no longer get any body/mouthfeel from them. This Grolsch "feels" more like a Pilsner Urquell without the burnt caramel flavor.

Regular Grolsch is forgettable but the Premium is better. I had a friend who used to drink this stuff all time. I sure do miss that guy.

I was shocked to see such low ratings on this beer. I know there isnt much different that can be done with a larger or pilsner, but what else would you want from this style of beer? A great clean crisp tasting brew!

Great aroma! Love the crisp taste. Im kind of an oddball in that I absolutely love skunky beers and this is the best.

From the 12oz bottle. Pours a very, very pale gold. Palest beer Ive seen in awhile outside of Mich Ultra. Crystal clear. 1/4 inch dense and persistent head. Head dissipates, leaves nice lacing. Smells of grassy malt, herbal hops. Just a bit of light skunk. Taste is crisp grassy malt. Light bitterness in the finish. Persistent noble hops that build nicely. Hallertau or saaz? Dont know but its a nice finish. Crisp and very clean mouth. A lightly sour finish. Lingering hops and fizzy mouth. This is shockingly tasty. Good stuff. Of the Eurolagers, this should be your choice.

This is a great Pilsner. It has a light aroma . It is not to harsh on the palate and has a great flavor.

Smooth with low britterness, but noticable hop aroma and malt aroma. Note a technical paper that the gluten content is below 10ppm.
