one of the worst beers I have ever had. whilst it looks ok, very clear, and having no head, that痴 not the worst of it. The aroma at the back of the throat is like burnt rubber or plastic. Hard to describe. I don稚 know what the matter with this beer is. it痴 in date, (by 10 months), so I don稚 think that痴 the problem. I値l be throwing the balance (two thirds) down the sink.

Bottle 0,33l. Pours a golden colour. Aroma of corn and caramel. Taste like ash, rotten nuts and cat piss. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

varanid99 (564) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2013
Pale gold pour with a thin white head. Pretty skanky, musty wet grain aroma. Overly sweet, watery, tastes like nothing. Poor gluten-intolerant buggers; this makes me pity them more.

KeefOz (969) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 20, 2013
Poured a clear pale gold colour with a white bubble ring for a head. Poor lacing. Low carbonation with a few minute bubbles forming trails. Aroma of musty grain and a trace of malt. Taste slightly sweet (sweeter than the Light Lager) with no bitterness bland really. Light body bordering on watery. Poor for a 撤remium beer (but better than nothing for those who need gluten free).

330ml bottle. Not a very nice tasting beer, but better than nothing for those people you can稚 drink regular beer.

davidm (1957) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Bottle 330ml from San Remo, Victoria. Inoffensive and uninteresting. Aroma of straw, with hints of citrus. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and short-lived. Palate is thin and watery. Yellow, pale, with a frothy head.

Ungstrup (29851) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 9, 2011
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of malt and some unfermented grain. The flavor is sweet with notes fo malt, lemon, and unfermented grain. Boring.

Dervock (505) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2011
Bottle - Pours a very pale straw with a fizzy short lived head. Really strange aroma a mixture of Jeyes fluid and leather with a bit of veg thrown in? I think the flavour is comes from the malt, its not very nice whatever it is. I知 not one for wasting beer but this was a drain pour!

Well passed its use by in my makeshift cellar so time to get it out the way.Time to turn on the 池emember I知 drinking GF beer part of the brain of which I have none!
Smells of scrambled eggs, warm anglaise and boiled glutinous rice. Pours that dull south east Asian lager hue of gold, with very little visible carbonation and nothing more than a thin island of fine white bubbles on the surface. Cleaned up slightly in the taste but the nose is still there and the swallow harbours a little of the aroma. Dusty hop flower flavours peak through, as does more starchy flavours but not as woeful as in the nose. Holds a little essence of doughy fruit like honeydew, a little lychee and pear. Body is light, the carbonation prickly and sprightly. It is actually not too bad drinking, just yields an offensive nose. Mild cardboardy note late, but not too offsetting. Good drinking as far as Gluten-free beers go, not bad! (33cL, BB 30/09/09, Dan Murphy痴)

Pyobon (979) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear very pale straw. Aroma (when cold) is grassy / vegetable. Palate is thin and fizzy. The flavour is foul. There is a sweet start and some bitterness in the finish. Neither are particularly nice - the sweetness is cloying and the bitterness is harsh and metallic. But that isn稚 really the problem. The problem is that it is overlaid on a horrible chemically / petrol / rubber taste. As the beer warms up, the aroma takes on these foul characteristics. Overall - this beer is not drinkable.
