2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl. bottle. Clear golden with very small head. Nose : light aromas of lemon zest, some grains and bread. Sip ; fluffy texture , low density body, still some decent carbonation. It’s a dry pils with distinctive lemon zest bite. The aftertaste is medium bitter and dry. In fact the beer lacks complexity and it’s quite narrow. the malt taste is completely overpowered with soapy, chemical zest dryness. Last time I drink that although I add some extra points for this beer being fair trade, gluten free and bio in the same time.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Glutenvrij pils. Rijkelijke aroma. Redelijk zacht in de mond, echter met een te overheersende bitterheid.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pale gold with a white head. Aroma of grassy hops. There’s a sweetness which is actually quite unpleasant. Cereal. A pretty poor pilsener. I didn’t realise it was gluten free when I bought it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light aroma has hay and fruits. Clear straw, dense white head is long. Taste has hay and green apple, pear. Light and dry. Was ok, boring malting and needed more fruits maybe.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A light yellow beer with an almost medium and white head. Aroma is malty and slightly sweet, some grass; pure and fresh aroma. Taste is malty, sligtly aromatic and fruitfull, bitterness is grassy and mild, but still there are enough of hops. Medium- bodied, smooth and pleasant to drink. Nicely aromatic and fruitfull taste, even the unpersonal beer was expected based on the aroma; nice Pils.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale straw, thin white head.
Strangely papery aroma, rice, wheat, fruit?
Dry, light in body and bitterness, low CO2.
Citrusy taste, rice, pepper, some cardboard, a weird spicy touch.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma was surprisingly strong. But that was the only good thing about this beer. Nothing to write home about, but no real bad sides to this beer either except the not so appealing typical lager appearance.
