Pours a clear pale golden color, topped with a very small white head. Malty aroma, grains and funky herbs. Taste is sweet, malty with some bitterness and wet paper feel. Nope.

jamaty (1329) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Amarillenta blanquecina muy turbia y con enormes trozos de sedimento. Escasa espuma. Olor a yogur de frutas. Sabor extraño, citrico y a cereal, como a papilla. Diferente...

Flaša. Mútna, bledo žltá farba, žiadna pena. Vôňa sladová, zrnitá-obilná, zemitá. V chuti cítiť obilie, sladkosť. Žiadne telo, skoro žiadne nasýtenie.

330 ml bottle as “Moulin des Moines Gluten Free” bought at Organic Bliss in Causeway Bay.

Cloudy hazy pale golden pear juice colour with thin traces of yeast sediments; Razor-thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds and completely gone in 2 minutes; Zero lacing with bubbly small carbonation; Very sweet aroma of millet malt, with caramel, sweet pear juice, star fruit, plum, faint alcohol, and hint of rum raisin; Medium sweet taste of diluted plum juice and milky grains (millet malt?), plus very light caramel, thin syrup, faint wet cardboard, carbo, sour fruit notes, and light lemon; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is strange: no usual barley malt taste, instead it’s a juicy mixture of milky grains and diluted plums. Watery sweet, slightly syrupy agaves with light caramel, topped with slightly sour (not infected) fruity palates. Slightly papery but not annoying. Exotic and interesting… Hoppiness is no aroma, and light lemon in taste. No hops and no bitterness, just sweet and sour fruity finish; Wet after taste. Watery and fruity to mouth.

Comments: Definitely not the usual barley beer - it looks like a traditional African brew, with smell and taste like agave nectars and tropical sour fruits. Almost no trace of barley beer’s elements can be found here. Not completely off-putting, but I wonder if this is the right sort of alternative that gluten-intolerant beer drinkers have to put up with. For curiosity sake, it has killed the cat inside me. Not again. : (

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle in Vilamoura. Headless gauzy dull blonde. Aroma of lemon barley sweets, root vegetables. Low fizz, poor condition, poor beer generally with a puff of redeeming sherbet but bugger all else to recommend it; card, slime, aluminium, asthmatic mucus. Very stale tasting like mildewed cardboard. Wretched. No substitute for gluten-containing beer at all.

ciocanelu (177) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 24, 2014
330 ml bottle, poured into a long tulip glass. Color is very pale and cloudy. Almost no head and absolutely no lacing. Smell is very special. It has something grainy in it but totally different than other beers. I suppose because it’s made with millet malt. Taste is also grainy and a little tart. Body is light to medium with high carbonation. Overall this is surely an interesting brew but not necessarily in a good way. It feels like a lambic but made with a specialty grain. I would recommend this beer only to those with gluten intolerance.

Rune (9396) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 21, 2014
330ml bottle from Finn, thanks! Quickly diminishing white head. Pale straw coloured body, unclear. Poor lacing. Uninviting aroma of grainy milk. Artificial taste of sweet milk and malts. Some fruity hints towards the ending. Lively carbonated. No good, mostly drain pour (Tromsø 20.04.2014).

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes goldenes Bier mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig, getreidig. Geschmack malzig, getreidig, minimal bitter, blumig.
