Brewery: Grolsch Bierbrouwerij N. V.
Type: Euro Pale Lager
Appearance / Aroma: Big, fluffy white head and a golden yellow color. It gives off a bright and crisp, slightly tangy and zesty aroma.
Taste / Feel: The taste is very solid. Pure, no flavors that jump out with intensity in any particular way. It’s bright and crisp with a light zest and a soft cereal grain underneath to balance it out. This reminds of the feeling of having a Heineken amid all the domestic beers that I used to drink. Where you take a gulp and just nod your head.
Actually!! I’ve come back to this because it gets so much better as it warms! There’s a new sweetness to it that completely pulls everything together. The zest, the grain, the sweet. Now it’s harmonious. That was an unexpected complexity that I wasn’t… expecting. Allow myself to introduce… ANYHOOT.
