larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2008
Biggish white head. Deep yellow body. Grain and straw aroma. Dryish grainy corn taste with some sweetness and watery notes. Very faintly buttery. Watery, soft mouthfeel. Dryish papery aftertaste with grassy metallic notes. Drinkable, but not good. (0.5l can labelled Carlsberg Sweden SAXON 4.1%, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2006
[Saxon 4.1] Poured a dark golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasty dough, maybe some toffee, and light citrus. Clean, crisp taste of more toffee, somewhat sweet (maybe corn), with very low bitterness. No offensive flavors, this is a nice thirst quencher. Thanks Craig for picking this up at the 12 annual International Celiac Disease symposium in NYC.

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2014
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.

ekstedt (5317) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2007
Can, 50 cl (Saxon). Clear golden, medium frothy white head. Grainy, honeyish malt, no hop profile. Light bodied and a bit watery. A bit sweet with low but still tangible bitterness. Ok if served cold on a hot day.
