DuffMan (6542) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, - 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, don’t 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.

johndoughty (3880) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle. Pale yellow with a small head. Crisp slightly hoppy flavour. This is the first gluten free beers that I have enjoyed. A pleasant surprise.

mjs (4498) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2014
(Bottle, 0.5 l - 03/15, 20140724) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness and honey. Palate was medium bodiied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A quite poor English pale ale.

Frovigalning (2928) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from Millets Farm Store. I thought I bought a bottle from the brewery Against the Grain but I didn’t check the bottle very closely. Considering it’s a gluten free beer it is refreshing and easy to drink. Would work well on a hot summer day. But it also lacks something that would make it more interesting. Some brittish aroma hops would have been nice. The maltbase and hops makes me think of a pale lager but with another yeast.

Beerhammaren (998) - FINLAND - JUN 11, 2014
.5l bottle from Supermarket Lutakko Pours clear pale yellow with low head. Aroma is hops, wheat, herbs. Flavor is mostly same with citrus notes. A stingy palate.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle. Blonde. Grainy aroma with hay and hints of apple. Low on carbon. Grainy flavor, grassy. Apple and plastic. Soft sour and bitter notes. Hint of licorice. Weird.

Hermod (3077) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 25, 2014
50cl bottle. Pale golden, thick white head. Fruity, sweet aroma, citrus notes. Flavor has hops, citrusy notes, mild bready and some floral notes. Quite sweet. Meh.

TET (1573) - FINLAND - MAY 25, 2014
A light yellow beer with a weak and white head. The nose of fresh lemon, biscuity and grainy maltyness, quite dry. Taste of biscuits and some honey, herbs, hint of lemon, dry bitterness with some unpleasant acrid notes. Quite light, nice carbonation. Nice aroma but some acrid notes in the taste are spoiling the enjoyment.

tuevo (16) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2014
Pale yellow colour. Aroma is fruity with lemon and apple. Flavor of lemon, apple, bitter grass and sweet grain. Medium body with soft palate. Refreshing, easy to drink and very tasty for a gluten free beer.
