Dutch beer is good. The language is difficult. When the two mix, Australians get it wrong. The Netherlands is home to some of the world’s best beers, such as Grolsch (pictured, modelled by Ian).
In Australia we pronounce it pretty much how it looks, but the c is silent. In Amsterdam though when we asked for a Grolsh we got a strange look from the waitress.
“Oh! You mean Hhrolssc?” she said.
We thought it was a safe bet that was what we wanted and said yes. We got two pints of Grolsch.
Now I know.
