Actually, as far as a fairly dull style of beer goes, Grolsch isn't too bad. At least you can taste the hops in it, unlike most other lagers.

Still, lucky they weren't the flip top bottles - that really would have been distressing.

Fortunately, Grolsch also do a Premium Weizen wheat beer in the flip top bottles that is pretty good; and at supermarket prices comes pretty close to buying empty bottles from the LHBS.

I know its old.. saw it b4 as well, but I'm sure not everyone here saw it. even if they did it's still slightly entertaining to say the least.

Cheers

Grolsch, and a few others, sometimes suffer from the marketing problem of putting their beers in light green bottles (especially for export). When someone then leaves them in sunlight they get lightstruck and skunky. Grolsch, being more highly hopped than most, is particularly vulnerable. Gotta hate the way marketing always wins out over good sense.

I get it in 500 ml cans and it isn't too bad at all. No skunk taste from mine.

Skunk monk bunk dunk. I have two 1500ml bottles and they were a bit of a stuggle to empty. Not the worst beer in the world but well below par.

They're available in cans here now that BA owns them. Tried 'em at the dunes. Good thing I was thirsty
