Reminds me of a Heineken in my opinion with a slight barley note difference. Love the swingtop bottles too!

A really nice dutch lager beer. It has a nice bitter taste to it.

I like this beer, one of the first beers I tried as a teenager. Decent euro lager, one of the better Dutch lagers and is an excellent alternative to Amstel or Stella if you can find it.

Granted, Grolsch doesn't look like anything special. The head is decent, but the smell possesses a hint of skunkiness. That said, I have always loved the taste of this beer, which has a stern bitterness with a hint of something tart. It goes down nicely too.

Bought it first in a bottle in Poland and loved it. Then had it again in Nizza in France on the night of the terrorist attack in 2016 and I knew nothing about it that while I was sipping this in my hotel room, dozens had been ran over by an assault...
Now this beer has a very bitter experience to it, something not sure if I can ever forget about, nevertheless the beer itself is still quite good, much much better than Heineken or Amstel or any of the other commercial beers from the Netherlands that I've ever tried.
