Beer

Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 111: Grolsch Preimum Lager

Another episode where I try a beer I have tried before.

Grolsch Premium Lager
Ah, that familiar ceramic stopper!

The bottle opens with a pop! as the seal breaks. Pours a straw colour with a nice thick head and a lot of carbonation. The head fades away into a thick lacing.

First Sip: moderately malty with a mild hoppy bitterness that reduces the sweet malt a little. Very faint hops after-taste. Tingly carbonation feel on the tongue. There is almost but not quite a citrus flavour in there.

I used to drink this all the time. I stopped when I started to prefer darker beers, not because I grew up and stopped drinking yuppy brews. It's been a good 15 years since I last drank this, and it is still good. Not as great as I remember, but yummy beers were in limited supply Way Back Then. I will be adding this one to my "re-drink" list.
