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.

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.

2.3 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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crisp, malty aroma is typical of a lager, but doesnít 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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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)

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.

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.

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
