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.

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.

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.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is grainy with some earthy tones and just a hint of some floral hops. Flavor is just as bland and watered down. Not much flavor with the earthy notes dominating. Nothing on the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear medium gold with a thick, soapy white head that shrinks to a fat collar and leaves tons of lace rings. Aroma: toasted white bread, grass, floral honey. Taste: sweet and grainy, with notes of pie crust and graham crackers, with light hay undertones. Finish: crisp, clean, refreshing, and slightly sweet. Notes: I don’t get the hate. This was a drinkable, well-balanced beer. Unlike many of the gluten-free beers I’ve tried, this one actually had some depth of character. In fact, I never would have guessed it was gluten free.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle This was a sample bottle from the closing Libbie market at Ridgefield. The beer poured a clear straw color. The head was small and and orange. The beer does have a mild aroma of cereals. The taste was sweet with some bitterness. Just too bland for me. The carbonation was average. This is a drinkable gluten free beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint glass. Light straw color with a finger of head. Fair amount of bubbles visible. Looks nice.
Smells of honey, little spice and slight metallic. It smells better than most other beers in this style.
Pretty tasty too. Honey, mild bitter hops with some dryness to them, a malty sweetness to close it out. It has the slightest metallic taste in the background.
Crisp and light body with moderate carbonation.
Surprise to me. I’m enjoying this beer. By far the best Euro pale lager I’ve had.
