3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Pours a translucent, light yellow body with a white foam film.
Smell: A light sniff of cereal maltiness with a thin hint of floral, spicy hops.
Taste: A base of modest, malted barley with a dash of confectioners sugar. Moderate acidity. Hint of graininess. Mild hop character, bitterness. Drying, smooth, clean finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Moderate carbonation.
Overall: Among the gluten-free beers it truly shines, as I’ve never enjoyed the use of repellent sorghum.

Bottle. light golden thin dissipating head. Did I catch a whiff of apple? Very faint aroma. Taste more flavorful. Tastes like your average beer. High carbonation.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Out of the bottle at home. Pours a darkened straw - looks like a urine sample in my mason jar. Almost no white head and little carbonation. No aroma - which can be a good thing for the style. Crisp dry taste with oxidized finish. Pretty uneventful - nothing good here but it also lacks many of the off flavors of a cheap lager. Some chewy grain.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
330ml bottle (Stockmann, Riga)
Bland aroma, a touch of perfume. Pale, some persistence to the light head. Obnoxious papery palate. Nasty scrape-it-off finish. Noxious retronasals. Fairly clearly in the "nasty" camp.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.
