DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle picked up cheap in Spain- unreasonably expensive over here. Steady fizzing pale gold under a spotting white slick. Good clean aroma for a pale lager with attractive lemon jelly and coniferous hop notes. OK taste, too; lightweight but inoffensive with vague grassiness leading into a clean biscuit and basmati rice-like finish. Bit of a slimy mouthfeel but no more so than your typical gluten-containing gambas-beater.

ekstedt (5215) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear pale golden, medium white head. Grainy and honeyish malt aroma, some vague hops. Light to medium bodied, meidum carbonation. Dry with medium bitterness.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Appearance: Clear straw under a fizzy white head which rapidly fades into a thin broken film.
Nose: Faint; I’ll have to dig deep for this one. A whisper of sweet grains and sweet breads. Soggy days old cut lemons.
Palate: Sweet bread dominates. Dank around the edges. Lemon soaked white bread – soggy. Salty in the back.
Final Thoughts: Gluten free beers rarely taste good when they are brewed to come as close to resembling a real beer as possible. A lot like Non-Alcoholic beer, they just shouldn’t be. Now, that’s not to deny those who are Gluten-Intolerant a tasteful fermented quaff, and for that I direct you to cider, mead, and Dogfish Head’s Tweason’Ale which is so good, even those who are not gluten intolerant would like it.

Bottle - Pale golden in colour. Honey, lemon and corn in the aroma. Lemon, grain and malt in the taste.

graziano85 (254) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 29, 2013
Small white head and clear golden colour. Very fizzy, strong carbonation. Nose is malty (and it’s gluten free!), but also some citrus. Taste is also malty, a bit sweet. Light bodied. Nothing special, I bought it for a mistake, but to be sincere it’s not that bad, acceptable beer, better than many mexican for example.

Bottle. Sweet grainy malt and grassy aroma. lightly hazed honey gold with a small off-white head. Sweet malt with a bitter grassy finish. Light body, moderate carbonation. One of the better gluten free beers I’ve tried so far.

Beer4000 (4323) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2013
330 ml bottle. Clear, pale golden body with a small white head. Weak aroma of grain with a hint of grass. Flavor is light grainy, soft malt, some fruit and low bitterness. Medium body, short aftertaste and a rather crisp and clean flavor. Not bar, just boring.
