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!

dfearnley (888) - 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.

Dorqui (2094) - Brescia, ITALY - SEP 1, 2013

prawlie (1110) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
500 mL bottle into a pint glass. Golden, gassy, with very little head. Smells a bit íBurtoní. Light, quite refreshing with just a hint of citrus. Smooth and perfectly drinakable, but lacks depth.

BlackHaddock (3509) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
500ml Bottle conditioned: BBD 1 Nov 2013. Poured slowly into a UK pint sleeve on 1 Jul 2013 at home with the new puppy. No sediment appeared to leave the bottle: bright and light golden colour, very pale actually. On top a full and fairly deep foam white covering. Plenty of carbonisation bubbles rising through the clear body. The nose is mild malts and a un-malt-like sweetness from something, fruity esters too. Oddly enough it also had a grainy aroma despite itís name. Strange taste: candid fruit peel sort of taste but not as sweet, watery body feel and a metallic twang to the aftertaste. Canít say I really enjoyed it.

ClubGonzo (3948) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle from LerÝy Mat Galleriet, Bergen, shared with Foffern. Pours a light golden body with a tiny white head. Aroma is citric peel, sweet grape sugar tablets and hints of pale malts. Taste is herbal grassy notes, citric peel, hints of pale malts and metallic grains. Medium to light body, medium carbonation. Middle-of-the-road stuff, this one.

Foffern (1168) - BodÝ, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle shared with ClubGonzo. The beer has a very light straw colour and very little foam and is pretty carbonated. The aroma is dominated by sour fruit peel, dextrose, slightly cooked vegetables and straw. The taste is slightly sweet with more touch of pale malt, hops and slightly tart and dry finish. Have a light and watery mouthfeel and a light to medium bitterness. A bit strange and weak beer, and seems a bit unbalanced.
