On tap @ beertown – pale straw color, clear, weak 1 figer cap does not last- overly carbonated, Almost no nose to it, flavor has some hop presense and a weird unbready malt discernment – fast clean uneventful finish, totally forgettable and not for regular folks. If you are so gluten-sick you have to drink this stuff , don’t go near beer and stick to scotch. Both ordering this and going to Beertown are both mistakes I won’t make again.

Douberd (2341) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2013
330 ml bottle, poured into a pilsner glass at home. ABV 5% Golden yellow colour on the body, crystal clear, with lots of activity in it. A bit more of a finger tall white head, soapy, collapsing quite fast but retaining a thin line of foam at the end. Interesting aroma with lots of malts and bread, but also kind of chocolate-y and vegetable like smell. Maybe the gluten free barley? Not much on the taste, quite a metallic flavour at first and then on the aftertaste comes the familiar gluten free taste,sorrt of medicinal, only quite faint thankfully. Thin body, light carbonation. Nice dryness on the palate. Overall, seeing on the label that it has won golden awards, I was expecting something much better, but even for the gluten free catecory is not that good.

a_cross (617) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2013
Light gold, thick white head; grassy aroma; fairly standard malty lager; clean enough, but there’s nothing about the ’specialty grain’ which elevates it above the dull pale lager masses.

Drinkable beer... but nothing mind blowing. I could probably drink it all day long on a hot summer day. Carbonation doesn’t seem very extreme... but I may have bought an older bottle of this stuff. I’m trying to figure out what Mongozo means... sounds like something from a movie from the 1930’s

janubio (416) - SPAIN - MAR 28, 2013
330 ml. bottle. Clear golden colour with a head that fades away too soon. Smell is mainly hops, like a classic pilsner should, with some toasted mal notes. Great. But... light body, not much carbonation and a taste that is mainly hops too, but leaning to the sweet side. Not bad, but I think it’s trying to be something between a mass market beer and a good not so much commercial one. And it fails. Gluten free.
