    Not an extraordinary product but very refreshing. I find it to be more bitter that I like a lager to be. Still, it has an interesting nose and crispness that I can appreciate.

    [Best served in a Lager glass]

    It poured a clear sparkling yellow with a light golden hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that diminished almost completely but did have some retention throughout thus producing some fair lacing.

    The aroma was pretty basic for a lager. The nose was crisp with a mild grain malt, a moderate grassy hop and a somewhat barnyard scented yeast with a light odor of wet cardboard.

    It tasted very mildly sweet and acidic at first, and then became slightly bitter with a mild crisp hoppy flavor at the end that stayed with you just long enough to put a nice finish on this brew.

    Mouthfeel was nice and light in body and a bit watery in texture with a nice light creaminess. The carbonation was quite lively, almost fizzy.

    Overall as I stated before, it is a nice crisp hoppy lager. One I have drank in the past and will again in the future. Very Drinkable!!

    Grolsch premium lager, Grolsch’s number one seller is a very typical European style light lager. It’s fairly high availability and competitive pricing as compared to Heineken and Beck’s made this a fairly decent buy especially due to their signature “Swingtop” (Flip-Top) bottles. For many home brewers, myself included, love these due to their ease in re-use, and with the aforementioned price buying the brew used to be a no-brainer. Unfortunately the appearance of the green flippies is becoming more and more rare and they are more commonly found in the boring 12 oz. crowned bottles.

    As for the beer itself, as I said it is quite mundane. It pours light gold with a thin white head. It smells of grassy notes and Euro hop. It tastes light and a little sweet. It’s mouthfeel is spot-on for this style of lager. It’s very drinkable due to it’s light body and sweet light hop flavour.

    If you’re heading to a party and the partygoers are used to Heineken or Beck’s give Grolsch a try. And if you do find it in the flippy grab ‘em up, because even if you don’t home brew you probably have a friend that does (or you can send them all my way!).

    Happy drinking!
