2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear, light straw with no real head at all, despite the fact that it has fairly high carbonation. The aroma is of slightly skunked oatmeal (despite the fact that it was in a brown bottle) with minimal hops. The taste, likewise, is of skunk and light, fairly bland, vegetal malt with a light hop finish (cluster hops? Something along those lines). Not horrible, but not worth the upcharge that this beer sells for.

Had no idea this was gluten free when I bought it. Just needed Spain is all. One finger whitenhead. Body is crystal clear with tons of bottles coating glass. Pale yellow color. Very corny aroma. If in a blind test would think it’s a bad Czechvar by its aroma. Flavor pretty much follows suit. When you take into account it being gluten free it is passible.

Golden yellow colour. Aroma of bread and wood. Taste starts sweet and finishes dry. I’m sure glad I’m not a coeliac.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Picked this up at Bert’s Better Beers for $1.75. Best by 09/2012. Stuck it in the fridge and poured into a Chimay Glass.
A - Looks like a PBR
S - Smells like Schlitz Beer
T - Tastes like High Life and PBR hooked up and added some honey and brown sugar with some better roasted barley.
M - 50/50 carbonation, light bodied, roasted and dry finish.
O - For a lager that’s mass produced, it’s alright. Any warmer than fridge temp and it would be undrinkable.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
BOTTLE: White head atop a clear yellow pour. Faint aroma of grain. Taste has a hint of sweetness but is also a bit sour. Foamy mouth feel and a bit of a dry finish.
This beer is Gluten Free

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized frothy white head. Decent head retention. Grainy aroma, some nutty notes and grassy hops. The taste is bitter hops, grain and a bit of toastiness. Medium bodied. Solid beer overall and excellent for a gluten free offering.

bottle - Well, it’s a fizzy yellow beer. There’s minimal aroma. The taste is sweet and the palate is light and bubbly. I’ve had worse beers and worse gluten-free beers, but this is not good at all.
