Typical Lager beer, with nothing to priority over others. In the smell and taste, light touches of hops. The finish is slightly bitter and metallic.

Mine had a small amount of skunk but this is still a very good lager.

Had on tap in Amsterdam and it was quite nice. Very smooth and drinkable for more than one pint. Good beer for a casual drink.

Not bad for a euro pale lager. Mildly hoppy. After taste is a bit bitter.

The default beer of many in the Netherlands especially in the local region of Twente.
Fun fact: If you ask for a beer in Twente you will get a Grolsch beer. (many people have this beer stocked at home)
For me it is the go to beer if you just want to have a cold one! Excellent Lager.

I've had quite a few of these over the years but nothing spectacular.

Clear, lemony yellow appearance with a creamy white head. Good carbonation. Aroma of bready malt and fruity hops. Good malt flavor with the hops adding some nice bitterness. I get a hint of lemon from the hops. Medium mouthfeel. Semi-dry finish. Enjoyable. Overall, a very nice beer. It has a little more malt flavor than other in the style. Definitely worth trying.

I've only tried this once, but the one I had was definitely a skunky beer

Had this at a dinner last night...other choices were Canadian, Blue, Coors Light, ugh. Was actually surprised by this one. Was expecting "Heineken like skunk" but, the bottle must not have been light struck. Would I buy at a store - no, would I have it again in the same circumstances - sure. Actually preferred the taste, and, mouthfeel over the Smithwick's red ale I had the night before.
Since I had it from the bottle, had to guesstimate at the look.

. A very decent session lager in my opinion. A step above the other global brands for me anyway. Not the best but not anywhere near the worst. I really do enjoy Grolsch. Never out of a can! Always, always out of a bottle.

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.

It's a lager, so it's not meant to be strong; however, I believe they put more on the bottle than they do in their ingredients. Could be better. Such a cool bottle deserves a better beer

Mild maltyness in both aroma and taste. Crystal clear bright yello appearence. However over all pretty boring average lager.

Good beer, but nothing special. Almost sweet with some skunk.

The taste was little too bitter for my liking, as well was the smell.
