DATE REVIEWED: May 31, 2014... GLASSWARE: 22oz. pilsner... OCCASION: today Shan and I entered the 21st century and purchased smart phones... APPEARANCE: bubbly, translucent straw-gold body that holds a soapy yet meaningful white head for a few minutes--pedestrian from a distance or close up; zero lacing... AROMA: beefy, metallic malts couple with a somewhat funky yeast profile to imbue a biscuit and cracker aroma--not aromatic, but not a turnoff... PALATE: medium-bodied, warming with heavy aftertaste; nearly water at the teeth... TASTE: yeasty, doughy and metallic, evoking a hot summer sip of the garden hose; rather easy drinking, but an aftertaste that offers gas and malt liquor sweetness...some cardboard in the finish...OVERALLL: the 16 oz. stopper-top bottle is retro cool, but no getting around the fact that the beer is pretty average at best, with a better critic suggesting this combines the less desirable traits of a pilsner and a lager--pinging and fat, so sessioning is not on the to-do list with Groslch either...on the plus side, it is fun pronouncing Grolsch correctly in front of friends and bartenders....
