Of all the beers mentioned, only Grolsch is in the premium category
(although the Israeli licensee of Heineken has successfully been
marketing it as premium).
Personally, I hardly drink what the Dutch call "Pils," practically any
lager sold on tap. But I can still tell the difference between the
Czech Budweiser (Budvar) and American Bud.

I included Stella Artois, Grolsch, Lowenbrau, Heinekin and a couple of other Europen beers. I also included Budweiser, Coors and a couple of micro brews. No one knew what beer they were tasting. The two most popular were Grolsch and Bud....I had people there from Holland, Germany, UK, Spain, France , Brazil and Italy. They were bumbfounded that they chose Bud as their favorite.....who knew?
