3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear golden bier. Pours with a pure white head. The aroma is like a light pilsner, grassy and balanced with light malt notes and bitter hops. The flavor has the same characteristics but is comes on a little stronger than the aroma would have you initially think. Due to this, the body seems a little heavy for the appearance. I canít tell its gluten free, and its a decent drink falling somewhere between a premium lager and a czech pilsner.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. crystal clear pale gold with a medium sized, fluffy white head. smells like pale malt with a tangy hop note like sterling or saaz. the flavor has a light limey tang from the hops with a mild malt flavor. no sweetness. crackery. just like the pale ale, its a very solid gluten free effort.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy lemonade pour with decent white head. Aroma is a little citrus hop lightness with some grassy/wheaty notes. Flavor has a decent grassy bitterness, but not too much. Crisp and pretty refreshing. Almost had some wheat ale qualities. Honestly not that bad. I donít think I would have even picked it out as gluten free if I didnít already know.

Not as good as the Omission pale ale, but then, why would you pick a plain lager over an APA in any event? Yellow, clear, light flavor. For what it does, itís an accomplishment--drinkable gluten free beer. Not offensive. (bottle at the Ale Jail backyard beer festival, 2012)

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.

2.7 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.

12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Yellow pour with a thin white head and very little retention. Aroma is faint yeast and lager-iness. Tastes are grain, lemon, floral and orange. Not a lot going on, but tasty enough.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.33l bottle. The label says Dec 12, 2013. Not sure if thatís a good thing or a really bad thing. Anyhow, as crystal clear as they get in the glass this, pale golden color and only a tiny filmy white lager head. Smells grainy and corn sweet. Pale malts - no real surprises or interesting thing on the nose. Smells like a pilsner. Not shockingly it tastes like one as well. Itís somewhat sweet this. Almost caramel sweet. More corn and grains in the taste as well. Pretty dull stuff really, but drinkable and not directly bad tasting. 05.03.2014
