When I was first getting into real beer, I liked this a lot, maybe it's the bottle, but it always seemed just a little nicer than what was in my parents fridge. Revisiting it this weekend was uninspiring. It's heavier in malt than I remember, seemingly stale and under carbonated, and definitely light struck in its once distinguishing green glass. Skunks for sure, this may be a little older than optimal, but it's heavy as these lagers go, more sturdy and definitely with more malt flavor. I bet this is much better fresh at the source, but it doesn't travel real well in my experience. More filling than it should be, just quite unremarkable compared to my nostalgia.

Best part is having the bottles for home brewing later.

Grolsch Premium Lager.
The look of it is really nice, you have that nice carbonation. A yellow color.
The smell of it is not really that strong.
Now the taste of it its completely different. It remind me of the Heineken. The taste of it is really close. If I had my eyes close and would give me a Heineken or Grolsch Premium Lager I won t notice any difference.
The difference with that beer and the Heineken for example is that the beer goes down really easily. It is tasty refreshing and have some flavour on it.
SO would I recommend it? For sure, this is much better than a Heineken even if the taste is almost similar. A little bit expensive here in Canada but definitely enjoyable. Cheers !

Pours clear, medium yellow color. Very small head that dissipates quickly. A bit of tartness on the nose and a bitter-tart flavor gives a pleasantness to what would otherwise be an unremarkable beer.

Smooth beer. Slightly bitter but a nice aftertaste.
