This beer tastes just like most other pilseners. The glutenfree doesn’t change the taste or anything. Decent pilsener.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fairtrade, organic and gluten free. Drinking this beer should make you feel good. But why is it that the best French wine houses went organic, but in the beer world it often means you’re going to drink a mediocre beer at best. Save the brilliant work of of some breweries, like Cantillon, of course.
Blond golden beer, fine white head. Aroma of malts, brewing cerial and a hint of iron. Flavour of malts, little sweet. Finish quite metallic.

330 ml bottle. Golden body with a white head. Mild grainy aroma with hint of malt. Taste is refreshing and slightly sweet plain pilsner with some hop flavors as well. Straightforward and decent, much better than expected with some other Mongozo flavors in mind.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Not sure how this one escaped "specialty grain" status, but whatever. As far as gluten-free beers go, this pours in a typical fashion: with brisk carbonation generating a vapid head on a clear pale golden body. Aroma is grainy and slightly sweet with a kiss of grassy hops. Palate is briskly carbonated with a papery grainy flavour profile, saved somewhat by a small kick of bittering hops. Not nearly as horrendous as most gluten free lagers, but still not a great beer.
