I couldn't find one of the signature Grolsch bottles at my local store, so I settled for a boring pop-cap 12oz. I poured into a tall glass. Hmm, a huge foamy head... tons of bubbles, deep yellow color that regrettably reminds me of pee... still could be promising...
Bring the glass to my mouth -- what's this? Skunk?! Smells like a Heineken! Retch. Take a long sip. Bitter, hoppy, kind of watery. Another sip. Catch a slight sweet taste before the bitter overpowers it. Tastes like hops. Refreshing and fizzy, which I like. Smells awful, which I don't. Bubbles still rising to the top after ten minutes of increasingly smaller sips. Ended up sacrificing half the beer to the kitchen sink.
I would try Grolsch again if an attractive female thrust one in my hand, but I wouldn't pay for one. The foul smell ruined this one for me, even though it's not an awful taste. I have yet to find a "Euro Lager" I've really enjoyed. Try a single before you buy a 6 pack.
