Beese (1526) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle mail order from the brewery. Poured a clear, light golden colour, with a dense white head. Aroma of sweet grains, mango and wet grass. Initial flavours are heavily hopped and bitter, flowery, with underlining sweetness. Finish is pleasant pale ale dry hops, toasted bread and crisp citrus.

Dermi (625) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 29, 2014
50 cl, bottled. Pours clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma: Blueberry, malt. Some features of vegetables. Grass. Quite pleasant. Taste: Slightly sweet, some light bitter tones. Gently in taste, easy. Palate: Light-medium body, mild weird slimy tone. Some sweetness in the end. Easy and I kind of like it.

Andy_ (636) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
White golden clear beer with little soapy white head. Aroma is dishwasher fluidy citrusy and dried fruity sweet with some vegetables. Flavor is malty dry with hay, dried fruits and citrus. Quite heavy amount of dry grapefruity bitterness on the finish. Thin palate with medium carbonation. Not very enjoyable or refreshing. At least itís gluten free and not a pale lager, although it doesnít taste much different.

Migmar (241) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 25, 2014
Pale yellow, clear, not much head. Grass, herbs, flowers. Light sweetness, medium bitterness. Not special, but also not offensive.

jookos (1955) - FINLAND - APR 16, 2014
Bottle. Light coloured. Earthy hops, some floralness. Not much malt to speak of. Light med bodied, nicely bittered, quite refreshing actually. Has english hoppyness, but very weak malts, even if a bit grainy. A bunch of citrusy flavours, wheaty tones. Dry and bitter. Eyes closed I would probably guess a bulk, southern, ale thatís been overhopped. Felt refreshing tho as the thermometer is showing almost 40C right now.

Beerheart65 (971) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 11, 2014
Clear straw with bit sparkling and one finger frothy head. Hoppy fresh aroma with citrus and pine and also bit tropical fruits. Light to medium body, bittersweet, round feel, bitter finish is long, nice carbonation, malting balances smoothing the bitter hoppiness. Easy to drink and tasty, refreshing.

mile (2876) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle. Light yellow, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate malty - lightly grainy and sweetish aroma, light caramel and some floral fruitiness, light herbal hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, faint caramel and light floral fruitiness - faint honey, light herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and dryish, light floral fruitiness and light - some herbal hoppyness. OK decently hopped bitter (specialty grain). Floral fruitiness and bitterness do not match here.

50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 03/2015
Aroma has toffee and English hops. Flavour has Toffee, English hops, some grass and hints of grapefruit. Probably the best gluten free Iíve had. Kukko Pils is a close second though.
