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.

ChainGangGuy (4347) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 13, 2012
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.

stevoj (1971) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 1, 2012
A pale lager brewed for the Mediterranean palate. More of a thirst quencher thana sipper, it’s a decent lager and better than any North American mss market lager. Refreshing...

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2013
330 ml bottle at home, poured into a shaker glass. ABV 5,4% Pale golden yellow colour on the body, with minimal activity in it. One finger of snow white soapy head, with low retention and very light lacing left on the glass. Not much of an aroma, just some faint sweet malts. Tastes good and in comparison with the other gluten free beer I had, this ones tastes great. But only in comparison, by itself it doesn’t stand out of any other pale lager out there. At least men with gluten allergy can drink a decent beer. Sweet, some malts and very discreet apple. Light on the body, average carbonation. Very good beer if we are talking about gluten free beers.

12oz Bottle to tulip.Pours a transparent golden color with a very thin white head. Aroma was a bit on the yeasty side. Nice thin bodied brew. The finish consisted of a faint citrus note and went down smooth.

Pours a four finger white head that fades slowly, leaving some lace. Crystal clear light amber color. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Sweet grassy nose. Flavor is sweet grass with hops in background. Not a bad gluten free. $2.35 for a 330ml bottle from Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett, NH. Best by May 2011.

AlexGR (112) - GREECE - JAN 15, 2012
It pours a light yellow color, with a very small head. Light taste, easy to drink. With a watery finish. Ideal for a hot summer. First gluten free beer i’ve tried, so i can’t compare it with other similar beers.
