Bottle from Meny Manglerud enjoyed at home
Quite pale, white head. Smells of malts, grain, hints of honey and hops. Moderate sweet, fruity, some melon and corn, not the best malt base in this one. Moderate bitter, some english hops. Quite average beer - not one iím gonna try again

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2013 Bottle. Streaming, anaemic gold sustaining a bright white, thick and uneven foam. Fine dishcloth, dank lemon and lime, brittle leafy aroma with suggestions of kaffir and dried curry leaf. Good, uncomplicated, limey hop underscored with crackery malt flavour. Like cask JHB but better. Could happliy spend a few hours contemplating the aroma, body and flavour of this on a summerís afternoon, or right now come to think of it. A brace of excellent offerings from Wold Top tonight; scoring this up all round because the absence of gluten is incidental to the flavour- of which there is plenty. Tasty, brittle, floral stuff and a fine GA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dobre i świeże piwo bezglutenowe. Żůłty jaskrawy kolor ale mała piana niestety. Aromaty świeżo skoszonych zbůż i wiosennej łąki są wyraźne. Smak gożki, chmielowy. Finisz dośc wytrawny. Smaczne i zdrowe piwo. Polecam bezglutenowcą.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Bright golden yellow with an average white head. Low aroma of buckwheat and orchard fruits. Clean grainy palate with a lovely fruitiness (fresh pear, light lemon) leading into a moderately bitter finish. Nice malts here, donít know how they pulled it off, but they managed to avoid the usual gluten-free fiasco of apple juice and rice water. As a gluten free product this was excellent; perhaps more importantly, as a eer on its own terms this was very tasty as well. If I became celiac, I could drink this without feeling deprived.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours watery gold, white fizzy head that doesnt last. Minimal aroma, some toast, grain and lemon. Strangely sweet in the flavour, with a metallic bitterness. Thin, fizzy and more metal in the finish. Not great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Cleveland Arms, London. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a small, white foam head. Tangy lemon nose, some white bread and straw. Medium sweet flavor, lots of tangy citrus, mild grassy bitterness, some white sugar, faint floral notes. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with a surprisingly sturdy grassy hop bitterness, some lemon and pineapple, more white sugar. Pleasant. Quite good for a gluten-free beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Wasnít sure which one to rate but this has a lower ABV than the Export and it has correct label. Bought a bottle to split with my gluten intolerant son and I had to steal the bottle out of his hand. He was in love with the beer. Golden amber with minimal head. Floral hops with a hint of lemon cookie. Interesting malt flavour hints of barley, rye, grape nuts and a weird whole grain bread. Has a bit of a weird edge to it that you would get used to. A bit of chemical and metal extra marks for a decent beer that is also gluten free.
