allmyvinyl (2802) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2014
500ml bottle from Booths. Pours clear pale gold, little to no head. Aromas are dusty malt, cereal, light lemon citrus. Taste is light sweet, very light bitter. If there had been a vegetal note I’d have called it a lager, as it is, pretty sub-standard low-hopped blonde ale.

a 500ml brown bottle 4.5%abv b@Kjeller5 Tromsø Norway. Aroma; sweet malt, corn, sweet-citric fruity, maybe apple, white bread, hints 0f sweet almonds. Off white modest head, - body’s very pale yellow. Taste; hops, grainy malts, barley, grass, mild fruity bitter. Fresh n crispy, well enough bodied, ok balance. Sweet-bitter finish, a little roasted bread. Overall well brewed.

berkshirejohn (4381) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2014
50cl bottle from Longacres, Windlesham. "indistinguishable from normal bitter"? No. It looks like an eastern European lager when poured, a pale straw colour with a billowing white head; and a grainy aroma with some citrus and grassy hop; the taste is more bitter-like though; with a soft sweet malty body with some citrus; and a fresh green hopped bitterness to finish.

bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Rating #793 - December 1, 2013 - 500ml bottle from Coop. Golden pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma is mild honey, mild lemon, orange, toasted rice. Palate is a bit messy, rice and corn toasted don’t provide enough body or depth to stand up to even noble hop bitterness. A bit average.

danlo (1060) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
500ml bottle. Yellow gold colour, foam white head leaving some lacing and aroma of grain & lemony citrus hop. Similar flavour with biscuit, hay notes and light spicy bitterness. Light bodied, medium carbonation, metallic bitter finish. Quite OK.

olliejobbins (728) - Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
500ml bottle. pours a clear pale yellow with no head. both the aroma and taste are good. i rated taste high as it really does taste the same as a "normal" bitter. i get a smell of barley (impossible?) and hops!. good for what it is.

jrscruff (19) - Killaloe, IRELAND - OCT 4, 2013
500ml bottle. Lovely, rich, bitter flavour. Lightly carbonated. Strong fruity aroma. Considering this is wheat free, I cannot notice any significant difference from any other ales. Coeliac's rejoice!

Lys gyllen farve med lyst skum. Lukt av noe malt. Smak av noe malt og en anelse sitrus. Supermarked.

dfearnley (878) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle to pint glass Lemon, hay, nuts, motor oil, and a slight funk. Very light yellow with a thin white bubbly head. Taste is a little peppery and piney with a little lemon, but otherwise very close to an English bitter. Slightly light but still a great job.
