What a long day at work today! Lots of meetings. Got a lot done though, which was nice for a change. On the home front, the wife launched her business today. I’m dedicating my next blog post to some beer-related product she carries.
Tonight I’m taking one for the team & reviewing Grolsch Premium Lager. I’ve often told you that I’m afeared of beer in a green bottle, and this is no exception. The bottle is haunting me as I sit here typing. Truly frightening!
Poker night beer left overs is the only reason I have this stuff in the house.
In an incredibly hilarious twist of fate, about 10 minutes before I decided to do this review, a skunk made its way into my back yard. No pictures, as the thing ran for the hills when Brady started barking his head off at it. I thought it was a funny omen though: skunk in back yard, skunk in mouth…
Drinking straight from the bottle tonight. No idea why I would bother to pour this into a glass. I doubt it is meant to be drunktified that way.
I’m going to stop to give the beer some credit. After the first taste, I’m not completely turned off. Skunky? A little. Super-skunk? Not at all. In fact, it’s a little creamy tasting. Virtually no bitterness to speak of. Mildly carbonated with an overall swell mouthfeel.
I’d go as far as to say I’m thoroughly surprised by the beer. Not like many other green glass monsters out there. I wouldn’t buy the beer. I WOULD drink it again if someone handed me a bottle.
Do you like beer in green bottles?
