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 brewery´s 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.
Eleganckie piwo, jedno z najlepszych w ofercie KP (wiele to nie mówi). ale jest jakaś tam goryczka pilsowa taka, wiadomo o co chodzi Eastwood (504) - Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 9, 2017

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 Perfect on draught in the Netherlands, and will go down far, far too easily. Back home, I’m not so fussed on the cans, but the bottles are usually pretty good fare when there’s nothing to drink on nights on and so forth. Beautiful lager.

450ml bottle. Pours clear golden, white fluffy head, doesn't stay long. Aroma is grainy, malty, lots of corn syrup. Taste is malty, herbal, sweet, some bitterness. Medium bodied, below average carbo. Weird to say, but there is too much taste for pale lager, needs some more wateriness. Tastes like 'pale lager concentrate'. Weird brew, but atleast different. wombat23 (1834) - Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2017
Bottle. Used to drink this stuff every now and then back in the day, but not so much anymore, unless I'm stuck on a cruise ship with no good options...Still, it's better than Miller Lite.

Famous lager for a decent price. A classic one. It reminds me of my beginnings - once upon a time I thought it was a very good beer. macca147 (627) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2017
On tap in Amsterdam. Pours a pale yellow gold with a white head. Thin citrus and grass notes. Funky aroma. Sweet malt, biscuity malt and mild citrus flavours. Not a strong flavoured lager. Thin bodied. Moderate to high carbonation. Easy to drink, and not as bad as a lot of other macro lagers, but it definitely is not a good beer. eastkenttom (154) - herne bay, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2017
Often think that this is the most grassy and acidic of the macro mainstream lagers you find in UK shops.
Still, at least it has a bit of character and it's extra crisp. Not bad. 6.5/10.
