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. It’s not terrible, like most gluten free beers are. I’m just concerned because I think it caused some extreme digestive systems distress for me earlier this morning. I’ll report back with my findings. But, I guess if you had to go gluten free you could do worse.

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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Should get its own style. Tasted like a regular adjunct containing lager, yet gluten free? Not bad at all. Caramel notes, corn flavors. Fairly clean finish, a tad sweet though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle at Widmer sponsored Celiac Awareness event & launch. Pours a basic lager color. Just a few bubbles streaming in the glass, but a bubbly foam head on top. A decent malt smell with no offsetting notes. Taste is similarly rounded and pretty malty. I’m catching a very slight edge of DMS, but just a slight one. Fuller even than most mass-marketed lagers. Maybe it could use a slightly hoppy bite at the end so we know we;ve had one.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours straw yellow with a fizzy white head. Skunk aroma with grass. Lemon, grass, with a skunk bitter ending. Decent, but nothing impressive.
