Bottle sampled at home, 330ml:

Grainy smelling with a little bit of corn in there to begin with. Overall the aroma is quite subdued and hard to detect initially. There is a little bit of skunk but mainly it is sweet smelling & faint hops.
Light amber colour in appearance with good clarity & a foamy white head that is initially about a finger & a half tall before gradually reducing to a thin, soapy lacing after a few sips.
The bulk of the flavour comes from a mix of bread, corn & sweet adjuncts. It is quite well balanced though.
Light bodied & smooth most of the way through until it becomes a little chewy right at the end. There is also some decent carbonation.

An average, macro pale lager that is better than a lot of its competitors without really being excellent. It is smooth & goes down easily.

Alexus (240) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2011
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours a head that with little head retention. Little lacing. Light straw-like color. Aroma resembles a lot of Sol and Corona, light malts and corn. Very sweet beer and low-medium bittering hops. Not very satisfying for a regular beer drinker, but a good alternative for people with gluten allergy.

abemorsten (2614) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2011
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours clear paale golden with a rocky,off- white head leaving little lacing. Aroma rich with light malts, boiled vegetables and sugar. Heavy sweet and medium bitter flavors with strong cardboard notes. The bitterness has a turnip side to it that is unappealing. Medium to full body. Light metallic. Dry tongue. Not recommended unless you need a rate fix to make you feel good.

Reid (1855) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - OCT 1, 2011
330ml single from "Lifesource",Salem. $2.15 Typical bright yellow lager..woth reasonable bubbly white head. Light aromas..mostly hay like,slightl earthy. Taste is again average..not too sweet though which is a blessing, some honey tones and a drying bitterness at the end. OK. Nice on the palate..good carbonation..dry finish. Overall a nice enough lager and if i had the medical need this onen would suit me fine.

Maybe for those that can’t have gluten this is good, otherwise...golden with decent head and lacing. Oder of corn and malt, taste is watery with a distinct hop finish. On a level with Bud Light, et. al.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Pilsner glass. Appearance: Clear, pale gold with foamy white head and light bubbly lacing. Aroma: Grainy, peppery and slightly skunky. Yep, smells like a Euro Lager. There is some nice apple as well. Taste: Apple and straw are prominent. Lots of pepper on the finish, with a mild bitterness. Palate: Moderately high carbonation, light body, surprisingly dry and crisp finish. Overall: Can’t tell that this had the gluten removed at all, as it tastes like a Euro Lager should, and a better than average Euro Lager at that. However, this is not my favorite style. This makes me wonder if the gluten could be removed from other beers (say an IPA) and still retain its flavor.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 3, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear golden with a decent white head which lasts a bit, and leaves some lace. Aroma pretty fresh- some crackery notes, light pepper spice, grassy hops, mostly pilsner aroma. Flavor is light, some cracker, slight pickle brine- off ness, slight acetaldehyde, paper, light bread, toast, grass, slight metallic off twang, with kind of a weak flat simple finish with no real crisp snappy ending that would have been good. Seems to fall short mostly in the end. Meh.

Got this bottle from my neighbor who discovered it as a low-gluten beer. Yea, OK, but nothin’ to write home about. Very pale. Thin body. OK flavor of straw and some sweet malt but a kind of cardboardy finish.
