Brewed in Holland, I love the corked bottles, though review this time is from can...

Used to drink this quite a bit as a youngster.

Amber colour, reasonable head.

Fairly uninspiring malty aroma.

Grolsch has quite a unique taste that fizzes around and changes for quite some time. It is a good bitterness, and quite a balanced flavor. Though it does not really stand out and has nothing to distinguish itself from about the other big 9 commercially produced lagers. Also, better from a corked bottle, definitely...

Now re reviewing from a corked bottle...

Heineken has a slightly more inviting aroma I reckon, however this has a similar frothyness to it.

They definitely have tasty malts in Holland, as the malt in Heineken is pretty good too. This also has a very well balanced hops bitterness to it, particularly noticeable in this plastic corked version. A great overall balance and I'm loving the bottles.

Watch out though as sometimes the Grolsch in the cans and small bottles is different and not as good...

Pours a toasted amber with only a tracery lacing the surface. There is a sweet, hoppy aroma, with a hint of skunky breakdown. Poured into a stein, the skunk relaxed a touch. It is a very simple and nicely balanced brew with a thin bready backbone, which is coated with a sweet, resonious hop character. Very easy drinking and a sweet pop-top bottle. I just wish it wasn't green, but a dark brown, or even ceramic to better protect the fine lager for it's international trek.

L-Straw gold with an amber tint to it. Slight bubley carbonation.
S- Regular sweet malty aroma with a slight skunky aroma from the green bottle.
T- Slight sweetness and breadiness.
F- Crisp.
O- It's good. A good solid pils. That's about it. Yeah I would have it again, but this isn't anything special. But, with that being said, you can't go wrong with this.

Swingtop green bottle. Clear gold with a reasonable head. Basic malt nose. Basic light bready malt body with a good crispness. Basic and tasty.

Holy guacamole. I used to love this beer, especially in the porcelain-stopped bottles that, while, green, were usually fresh back in the day. Nicest overtly-bitter beer I have ever had. Now nearly impossible to find around here, and I'm not certain that I would trust the freshness even if I found it. Too bad.
