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.

I really like this beer, especially in the bottle with the flip top cap!
