Bottle. Surprised to find a German beer I hadn’t tried at work drinks. less surprised to discover that it wasn’t great. Bit all over the place with notes of caramel and barley sugar, bit fizzy in the mouth for my liking.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 40°. Color is a very light yellow with good carbonation and a thin fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet, almost like apple cider. Body is very light giving it a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is odd, it’s sweet yet sour with a cream corn and paste like thing going on. It’s just bad, I can’t truly find the words to describe this flavor but its bad.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Sampled from bottle at home. Hazy pale golden with almost no head. Smells of weird chemical candy. Grassy, gluey, Sinterklaasschuimpjes, bitter rubber and raw beans. Medium sweet and quite a bitter follow up. Under medium body, prickly carbonation and a dirty bitter finish. Quite terrible.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is an interesting gluten free beer. It does not taste like ordinary beer but is kind of unusual in a good way. It’s got a grainy quality to it, almost roasty. It’s a little sweet and fruity w/ kind of an oily texture. Nobody will confuse this for a fine pils but it is drinkable regardless.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at troubles’s place. Thanks Max. Clear pale yellow with almost no head. Aroma of cereals, some apples. Pretty bland flavor, slightly sweetish, with a sourish hint, with cereals and overripe apples. Watery and slightly oily mouthfeel. Strange.

Pours golden yellow with small off-white head. Aroma is malts, sour notes, cat piss, apple. Taste is sourish malts, green apple, some grain, light copper, sour pie. Not very interesting, but easy to drink.

33cl returnable bottle. This is extremely fresh for an import less than 3 months old and stored in cold storage for pretty much its whole life once it was. I think this beer is nice, it has a tropical fruitiness that comes seeminlgly out of nowhere, there is a hint of medicinal millet qualities but this is one of th ebest gluten free beers ive had.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours from bottle pale clear yellow with minimal head. Taste is medium sweet and palate is lively, light body, slick, with long finish. Aroma citrus and grass. At first sip, feel a little overwhelmed by the intensity of flavor but then it grows on you. Quite a nice organic beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Almost clear peach straw color with a poor head.
Faint sharp citrus and floral hops bouquet, slightly smoky stinky. Pleasant bitter taste, not too intense. Almost fruity and a hint spicy.
A prickly light body with a puckering finish, with a faint bitter mouth coat.
Overall : Good easy-to-drink pilsener, but it does lack a little freshness.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl. Sour aroma - not like a sour beer, but like a lager gone sour. Qurious. Pale golden with white thin head and some carbonation - looks ok. Straw taste, some yeast and acidic background. Again, reminds me of kombucha sourness. Definitely a good and very solid specialty grain. One of the best gluten free beers I have had.
