2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Apr. ’15. A 0.33 l bottle, thanks Antonia! It poured pale yellow body with a small head. Decent herbal aroma, although dusty. Lightly bitter flavor, drying herbal and paper hops with something like brown flour malt counterpart. Medium bodied with long, dry herbal and cardboard finish, not an unpleasant kind. Anyhow, very good for a gluten-free pale lager.

BBE 01/2016. Peruslagerin väri, niukka olematon vaahto. Vetisehkö mitäänsanomaton tuoksu. Suutuntuma yllättävän vahva, bodyä on, pureskeltavuutta, ei erityinen makunautinto mutta silti gluteenittomaksi hyvää kamaa.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours with almost no head and lots of carbonation - yeah, gluten free, whatevs, shirley something can create an enticing appearance eh? Aroma is corn sweetness in an appetizing way and some apple cider notes. Flavour is lagery sweetness, with grain hints and again an overarching apple cidery feel to the whole thing with just a touch of lager. Adequate but not exciting.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
pours clear pale but bright yellow with a minimal cap, bubbly lacing. peppery apple and pear juice, faint grasiness, bland herbal notes - with a touch of oxydation, spicy honey solids - not quite sweet, clean yeast action, chalk. moderate carbonation - prickly tho; light body - thin of not watery; chalky-herbal finish. pretty decent pale lager-ish gluten-free brew.

A touch of sweetness but definitely malt balanced. Not the worst, but no reason to buy it again since you only get four in a pack.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at the Artisan Tap, Bedford. Gold with a decent loose white head. Smells of gluey porridge, malt and cardboard. Taste is sweet with a massive gluey aftertaste. Not great but not bad by any means, especially taking into account the fact this is gluten-free. A bit unexciting but certainly drinkable and as good as many lagers if not better.

Couleur dorée, légère mousse qui disparait. Nez leger houblonné. Gout houblonné, leger noisettes, pain avec fin malt d’orge. Bon corps. Petite amertume en fin de bouche. Pas trop mal pour une lager

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from an Albert Heijn supermarket. Gluten free version of Estrella Damm, with moussy, snow white, medium sized head with moderate retention, over a cristal clear, pure golden blonde beer with vivid fizz. Aroma of cereals, damp cloth, freshly cut grass, white bread dough, soaked corn, hints of iron, wet cardboard, burnt plastic, raw celery, sweaty abbey cheese. Fairly neutral onset, no esters, turning moderately cereal sweetish with light, notably oily, smooth mouthfeel and minerally, quite strong carbonation; bit metallic as well. A more sourish graininess sits underneath, but the sweetishness prevails, though it gets accompanied by a grassy, lightly drying hop bitterishness in the end, more so than average in a standard pale lager. Scientifically speaking it is difficult to prove that any beer does not contain any gluten at all, but I get the intention here; more importantly perhaps, is that within the monotonous ocean of bland pale lagers, this one does stand out a bit and seems more interesting flavour-wise than e.g. the regular Estrella Damm. But it remains, in all, another bland pale lager, of course, with a strongly industrial (and even slightly chemical) feel to it.
