Bottle. A fine lager, clear, pale gold, light head, moderate carbonation, mild flavored but with some taste. A decent choice

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Wegmans. Pours crystal clear yellow with an initial white head that is gone nearly immediately. The aroma has light grain, a bit of floral notes but I’d hardly call it aromatic. The taste has a bit of a earthiness to it, some light hop presence, and this is a decent compliment for writing this 25 page research paper; however, this is rather bland and uninteresting.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This pours a clear and bright straw yellow with a 1 finger head of foam.
It smells typical for the style. Sweet malt, grain, a hint of some lemon, and now some bready notes.
More bread in the taste than the nose, the sweetness is somewhat subdued and there’s only a hint of the lemon.
Good mouthfeel but overall, this is another very ordinary brew whose subtle-ish flavours don’t do anything for my taste buds. It’s about as exciting as the label on the bottle.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, bought @ Vinspecialisten, Kolding Storcenter.
Pours clear golden with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma has mild maltiness, citrus, brewing cereal and maize. Lowish carbonation, kinda fat and oily mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, light maize, soft resiny and citrussy hoppiness. Still feels somewhat sticky. Okay for what it is.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear light golden with a thin white head. Light aroma of grains to sweet malt. Taste is grainy up front with a bittersweet finish. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, finishes with a light dry aftertaste.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear faint gold with a small white head. Rice cake and white grape juice and corn syrup and a touch of lemon. Very light body, lightly sweet, mostly grainy, lightly bitter. This may be the first GF where I would not be sure I could guess it had grains other than barley. Seems close enough to "lite beer" to fool most people, which means it’s probably one of the better GF beers around.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pee-yellow with half a finger length head and weak lacing. Smells like a pils: apricot, some zesty funk, and a little citrus hops. Taste is much, much more watered-down, with only a hint of the zest appearing in the mid-palate and finish. It doesn’t last at all. Refreshing and crisp, sure, but there are more flavorful lagers out there that are equally refreshing and crisp. I was surprised at just how weak this was after the aroma.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent gold with thin white head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells doughy and a little skunky. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright for a gluten-free lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
35cl bottle. Pours very pale yellow with a minimal white head. Mild malty aroma with some hoppy and floral notes, hints of citrus, fruits and grass. Moderate sweet with a lightly grainy and hoppy flavour and a quite nice and balanced bitterness. Certainly one of the best gluten free lagers I have tried. Fairly lightbodied and very easy to drink, not so exciting, but quite ok.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Extra pale yellow pore with minimal white fizzy head. Smell is grass and grains and a bit of herbal hops. Taste is more grassy, grains and a decent hit of grassy spicy hops. For a pale lager this isn’t half bad. Its also 90 degrees outside and I am thirsty as hell.
