2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
341ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small fizzy head that disappears as quickly as it is poured. Aroma is slightly grassy with apple notes. Taste is apple cider like with some grassy bitterness. Light in body and adequately carbonated to leave a little tingle on the palate. Maybe they need to add more hops to GF brews to counteract the cidery sweetness. A typical GF beer and nothing really stands out.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from my son’s 6-pack as he is exploring gluten free beers. Gold with almost no he’s. Sweet woody metallic aroma. No surprises in the taste after the aroma. Tastes like no name ginger ale.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I picked up a 6-pack of this for my mother-in-law, who recently was diagnosed with celiac disease. Pours a clear honey gold with a very short-lived white head. Initially popping the cap produces a pleasant light grassy hop aroma, but after the pour it is mostly the expected over-ripe apple smell that I find typical of many lager style gluten free beers. Brisk carbonation lends a welcome crispness to the palate that is otherwise bland and thin, with flavours of apples and paper. Finish is non-existent really. This is typical of most gluten free lagers. Only Estrella has managed to produce a tasty lager for celiacs so far.
