Douberd (3011) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle 500 ml at home, poured into a small snifter. ABV 4.5% I didn’t know when I got it that it was a gluten free beer, curious now. Colour is a bright golden yellow one, very clear, with a small and thin white head. Low retention, light lacing left on the glass. Aroma is surprisingly nice, quite malty on the background but there are nice citrus and floral notes that cover the heavy maltiness. One of the best smelling gluten free beers I had till now. Taste is weird though, there is that light citrus and some fruity notes reminding of melon every now and then but the combination with the typical gluten free flavour doesn’t work that good. A bit of grass as well. Medium thin body, low carbonation. Dry palate. Overall I guess is okay, more aromatic than most of gluten free beers, maybe more taste as well. Not something I’d buy again.

500 ml bottle. G1719. BBE 03/15. (Prisma) Tampere, Finland. Clear pale golden colour with a tiny white head. The aroma of yeast, malt, mild sourness and citrus notes. The flavour is bitterish hops, mild sourness, mild malt and citrus. Thin. Bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beese (2560) - 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 (722) - 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_ (887) - 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 it’s gluten free and not a pale lager, although it doesn’t taste much different.

Migmar (252) - 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 (3162) - 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 that’s been overhopped. Felt refreshing tho as the thermometer is showing almost 40C right now.

Beerheart65 (1113) - 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 (3321) - 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.
