2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is sweet and malty with a detectable hopping. The appearance is hazy gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter malty finish. The palate is average. Overall about as good of a gluten free lager as you will find.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a moderate off white head on there. Nose has some dark and heavy corn elements with little else to it. Taste is slightly sweet but has a bit of a stale finish. Bleh.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
355ml bottle from C-Market Tammisto, Vantaa. Pale golden color, thin white head. Grainy malt, slightly sweet, hay in aroma. Flavor quite similar, mostly grain. Weak overall flavorwise, watery as well. Quite bulky stuff really.

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 don’t think I would have even picked it out as gluten free if I didn’t already know.

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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crisp, malty aroma is typical of a lager, but doesn’t scream "gluten-free." Pours a rather wan yellow with not much of a white head that quickly takes its leave. Flavor has a nice malty note and a hint of fruit, with a subtle hoppy undertone - not much going on here. Smooth texture lacks somewhat in both fizz and firmness. Still, a good effort. One of these days, someone will brew a truly good gluten-free beer.

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, it’s an accomplishment--drinkable gluten free beer. Not offensive. (bottle at the Ale Jail backyard beer festival, 2012)
