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.

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 ...
