2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml. bottle. Pours a thick rapidly collapsing off white head, with slight lacing, over a cloudy amber (SRM 33) body....nose is caramel/toffee from the malts, light ginger spice from the hops.....taste is light cereal, toffee/caramel, light ginger finishing with a bland bitterness....mouth feel, light body, mild acid from the carbonation. This is a bland, uninteresting beer. It would require a complete re-do of the recipe to improve it. BJCP 5/2/9/4/5

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Caramel aroma. The flavor is slightly acidic on the tongue. Toffee flavored, but with a metallic twang. Aftertaste lingers, but not necessarily in a good way.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. An unclear, golden to amber colored beer with a minimal-sized off-white head. The aroma is weak and fruity with a touch of malts. A faint caramel hint in the far back, both in the aroma and the flavor. The flavor too is fruity and lightly malty, with some bitterness showing up towards the end. Medium body, nicely carbonated and semi-dry. Even considering it’s a gluten free beer it’s boring. Dead boring. 140110

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Stubby bottle, 330 ml, poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 6.5%
Light amber brown colour on the body, two fingers of off-white head on top, thick, with average retention. Light lacing on the glass.
Aroma is soap, medicinal, typical gluten free, but there are some caramel notes enough to cover it a bit.
Taste is more than okay, just like with their gluten free blond. Caramel, dark fruits, mildly sweet.
Medium thin body, average carbonation.
Overall very good, taking in account is a gluten free beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, medium amber body with a large, creamy, dense, long-lived, off-white head that laces the glass very well. Moderate strong and fairly dry aroma of pale malts, fruits, pleasant Belgian yeast. Light to moderate sweet with a short, light bitter and dry finish. The moderate flavours follow the aroma, with additional notes of vanilla and sweet honey, also traces of alcohol. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Not bad.
