Grolsch Kanon


Type: barley wine, dutch malt liquor
Origin: Enschede, Netherlands
Price: €1-2 per 16 oz tallboy
Website

I just got back from a long trip to Europe (hence the lack of posts), and this is the first beer I popped open from the trip. Most of what I got was from Belgium, but this one I got at a corner store in Amsterdam. I saw this and said to myself "A tall boy, 11.6% Grolsch! Sign me the fuck up for that." I was expecting an absolutely shitty beer, but I am completely surprised by this. It is an incredibly high quality product with a perfect sweet balance. It reminds me most of a pilsner mixed with a barleywine. It does have an alcoholy flavor to it, but what do you expect from 11.6%. If only our cheap fortified beers tasted like this.

  1. Yes mate. I had some in Amersfoort this weekend. Couldn't believe my luck. Why oh why does Cameron provaricate and not allow this to be stocked at every street corner in the UK? Perhaps because it would provoke a manic non-politically motivated riot to end all riots.

  2. Sorry, forgot to add......Me old mucker Simes announced, "There's no need to go out....ever!" when he saw how pleased I was to be holding the affordable black Kanon can. And our host who put us up proved to be a complete hoodlie-hoodlie (piss-take of rapid Dutch talking) nob who couldn't take his drink, even when someone else was paying for it!

    1. American beer is not worth talking about. I wouldn't describe any I have tasted as beer. Water in Holland is stronger than American beer!

    2. You have obviously not had anything, especially since you troll this site for fucking Grolsch Kanon. We will gladly keep all of our good beer in our country.
