2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light yellow color with white head. Light straw, malty flavor. Light malt, light hop flavor. Weak, boring, blah.

Light and smooth, but somewhat tame and nondescript. Light malt, perhaps a hint of earthiness. Little hops, not much punch in the finish. Still, the best gluten free beer I have tried.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear gold pour, not much head. Flavor is minimal, and there is perhaps some grain and light fruit. Decent for a gluten free beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Bright golden pour with white styrofoam head. Aroma of fruit, mild yeast, some strong grainy notes. Flavor is still grainy with a touch of fruit. Medium yeasty crispness. Itís not terrible, like most gluten free beers are. Iím just concerned because I think it caused some extreme digestive systems distress for me earlier this morning. Iíll report back with my findings. But, I guess if you had to go gluten free you could do worse.

12 oz bottle from New Seasons - Pale yellow with minimum head. Looks like a Miller Lite. Not too much to the aroma. Tastes much fuller than it looks. Nice hop flavor on top of pale lager flavor. Pretty good.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow pour, white head. Grainy nose, not much hops, some stale fruit notes. Flavor is much the same and is not too tasty.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted on 7/13/12 from a 12oz bottle. Pours pale yellow with a thin white head that leaves very thin lace. The nose is pretty straightforward classic lager with the signature, lightly nutty yeast, and some spicy and floral aromatic, noble-style hops aroma. The flavor is lacking a bit with the malt flavor very subdued, even for a light lager, and the hops still coming through nicely, as expected. The body is lighter than light with fizzy carbonation and a short spicy hops finish. This is one of the better gluten free beers I have tried.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Blue Dog. Pours canary with 2-finger well-retained white head. Nose is Saaz hops, lager yeast, pale malt. This one smells good. Tastes pale malty, somewhat tart, with a bold hop crispness at the finish. This one is one of the top 3 gluten free beers I have ever quaffed, and a very good lager in its own right.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Again, this is a excellent specimen. Pale gold in color with a spritzy head that reduces to some lacing. Smells like a lager. Superb malt backbone with a mild snap. Balanced! Good carbonation and a quality bitterness on the finish. I donít drink beer like this but this beer is very tasty.

Time for me to break out the familiar rant. Why do RateBeer users hate (seemingly) all lagers? Anyway, this pours a bright yellow with a bit of fizz to it. The nose isnít powerful at all but this really tastes bright and clean. Not complex or multi-layered but also no weird off tastes and no corn pop flavors like you get with the BMC. A great summer at the pool sipper.
