I would make skirmishers and dragoons. Remember Grenadiers have the Heavy Infantry tag so they take full damage from a skirmisher (2x multiplier and 0.5 resist). This can be amplified through the arsenal with a multiplier upgrade for skirmishers. The skirmishers will also eat through pikemen like butter. Dragoons are there to protect the skirmishers and will do decently vs Grenadiers.

Grenadiers and Pikemen both have the Infantry tag, so I would have as many Falconets / Horse Artillery as possible out. Remember to protect them.

Grenadiers are expensive and need a 300 wood building to be trained so you should outmass him with crossbows/ skirms/ anything
Also note that grenadiers have 8 hand attack and have ranged resist so even if you don't want to fight them with musks, if it's too late try to melee them
Oh, and minutemen and villagers (melee) do very well against them
Consider not the one who speaks the truth, but the truth that is said

:hmm: AoE logic

This is why Brits are the top civ. EP needs to first and foremost nerf grenadiers and British's age 2 applicable grenadier combat cards.
