DruncanVeasey (6952) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2013
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.

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.

DuffMan (6172) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2013
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.

ciaranc (711) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 7, 2012
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.

Clear golden in colour with a small white head. Aroma of some light citrus and mild hops. Flavour of malt, light citrus and a mild hop bitterness to finish.

Leighton (9883) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2012
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.

presario (4536) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2012
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.

Chiara buona schiuma piuttosto persistente naso cereale leggero mais un erbaceo amaro deciso ma non molto elegante

VertBaconStrips (2023) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2012
Itís been a long time since Iíve bothered to purchase a gluten free beer but this one has a nice label and thatís all it took. Super clean light yellow wih a small, messy white skim that sticks well. Surprisingly good aroma of lemon/lime, tropical fruit, something slightly sweaty - not like my balls after a hearty work out so thatís a good thing. Itís mainly there on deep snorts. The taste is pretty good thanks to a shitload of tasty hops. Then the second kind of sucked and then I got used to the slight oddness and now Iím happy. Sweetness and citrus and bitterness are abound here. Lemon, spice, zip, light orange and possible rrgf. Grainy to a point and that keeps this fairly balanced. Perfectly carbonated and a nice bitter/citrus finish. Much better than I thought it would be.

reebtogi (3842) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 18, 2012
500ml bottle pours a pale straw color with a finger of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass as it settles. Aromas are mild with some light fruits and mild hops. Taste is much more beerlike than other gluten free brews, with some maltiness detected with light fruitiness and mild hoppy bitterness in the finish. One of the better gluten free products and highly recommended for Celiacs to try.
