2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
For a gluten free beer, this one drinks the most like a regular beer. Pours a golden color with white head. Not much on the nose, a little cereal grain; follows onto the palate.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Corn husk cereal grain aroma, hints of hops. Light yellow color with very minor hazing. Taste is a bitter crack for start and some sweetness on finish. Light and sessionable for sure, but not really a beach beer. Most consistent with the Euro-lager standard of all the GF beers yet sampled.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A light spanish style beer. Would pair great with spicier foods. A pale lager minus the gluten. Pale yellow pour with a white head. Aroma of wheat and grass. Flavor is the same with yeast in the finish.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Pours bright yellow with a heavy white head. Almost no aroma. Taste starts strong, bitter a bit of skunk, then quickly mellows and a malty / bready flavor appears. Finish is light, refreshing. Overal better than most mega brews, a decent alternative for celiacs. Food Pairing: anything gluten free!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pours clear gold with a white head that never quite dissipates. Aroma is sweet grain and grassy hops. Flavor shows basically the same. Body is light and finish is dry. Not too shabby for a gluten free beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
translucent gold with a thin ring of white bubbles, medium body with high carbonation.
aroma: pale malt and noble hops.
taste: biscuity pale malt and noble hop bitterness. like a german helles with less minerality.
not bad considering it’s gluten free. i’ve had plenty of regular beers that are much worse than this. i’ve heard that this beer is actually made with barley, but they somehow prevent gluten from forming, and the flavor seems to support that notion. there’s no hay or sourness or odd fruitiness in here, as is typical in most GF beers.
