4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a solidly delicious lager on its own right. I'd almost say that it is more of a pilsner due to the notable hops in the aroma and flavor. The fact that this beer is gluten free is amazing as this is truly the best gluten free beer I have ever sampled.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 ml bottle. The beer is a hazy yellow with a white head of foam that dissipated quickly. Smells like chemicals and lemon zest. Papery and cardboard like. Light body and medium carbonation. Not something I would recommend, even if you needed to avoid gluten.

2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle as "Greenís Gold dry-hopped lager", 4.0% ABV (from SIP, Tallinn). Pours golden with whiteish head. Aroma is hoppy, fruits, citrus, pineapple, sweet grains (I guess itís one or combination of millet, sorghum, rice, and buckwheat). Flavor is sweet and bitter, fruits, citrus, some peaches, more sweet grains. Body is very watery. Finish is watery, sweet citric with some more sweet grains and faint hint of bitterness. Overall: the aroma was intriguing, but the flavor isnít good. I donít detect any beer, itís so watery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 9/23/2015. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger foamy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, light honey, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate bready malt-like notes; with solid strength. Taste of pineapple, grapefruit, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, light honey, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, grapefruit, lemon/orange zest, light pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice robustness, complexity, and balance of citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate bready malt-like flavors; with a great bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.1%. Overall this is a nice gluten free hoppy pale lager style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate bready malt-like flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Bottle 330ml (KKK Kamppi, ABV 4%)
Hazy orange color, small white head. Aroma has rubber and weird dry yeasty notes. Light-bodied. Front has harsh bitter flavor. Some citrus and berries otherwise odd rubbery and herbal flavors. Ok, it is gluten-free but it also has bad taste ...

A murky, light yellow beer with a sizzling and medium head. Aroma has strong lemon, other fruits, fresh. Taste has lemon, spicy, the bitterness is harsh. Quite light but thatís not bothering, medium carbonation. Nice lemon, otherwise not so succesfully.
