2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can 500 ml at home, as Saxon Gluten Free beer, ABV 4.1%, into a Guinness pint glass.
Golden yellow colour on the body, with good activity in it, initially at least. Small white head, forathy, wtih okay retention, leaving light lacing around the glass.
Aroma of grass mainly, heavy malts aroma like the one you meet on non alcoholic beers, a bit of corn.
Taste is better than I expected, but with plenty of metal on it. A bit of grass and straw fill the list.
Thin body, quite carbonated.
Overall okay, I have had worse gluten free beers.

Poor celiacs if this is what they are allowed to drink when they want to have a beer. Extremely tasteless and non-existent character.

500ml can sold as Saxon in the UK. Clear amber coloured beer with foam white head that dissipates away to a thin layer and aroma of grain & hay. Light sweetish grainy flavour with hint of grassy bitterness. Watery thin body, medium to high carbonation, dry at the finish. Fairly bland, OK for gluten free.

Blue 50cl can, K-Kilpishalli, FI.
Bright golden yellow (or light amber) body with a loose white head on.
Scents of hops coz of the faint fart when I opened the can.
Fruity-watery taste of grains, hops, and moves to the malt side.
The ending has some notes of bitterness, but faint sweet malts over it.
Overall a light beer, yes. Plus points for moderate abv.

Smells of old cardboard boxes left on a dusty attic. Somewhat malty taste with notes of cardboard, quickly disappearing. Aftertaste is sour. Metal/mineral is prominent.

Minimal odor. Ulti thin flavor. The aftertaste was too thin. Maybe not too much water taste but not at all good. Probably would not drink this again. Fun though that there are gluten free beer anyway. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
