Bottle from an Albert Heijn supermarket. Gluten free version of Estrella Damm, with moussy, snow white, medium sized head with moderate retention, over a cristal clear, pure golden blonde beer with vivid fizz. Aroma of cereals, damp cloth, freshly cut grass, white bread dough, soaked corn, hints of iron, wet cardboard, burnt plastic, raw celery, sweaty abbey cheese. Fairly neutral onset, no esters, turning moderately cereal sweetish with light, notably oily, smooth mouthfeel and minerally, quite strong carbonation; bit metallic as well. A more sourish graininess sits underneath, but the sweetishness prevails, though it gets accompanied by a grassy, lightly drying hop bitterishness in the end, more so than average in a standard pale lager. Scientifically speaking it is difficult to prove that any beer does not contain any gluten at all, but I get the intention here; more importantly perhaps, is that within the monotonous ocean of bland pale lagers, this one does stand out a bit and seems more interesting flavour-wise than e.g. the regular Estrella Damm. But it remains, in all, another bland pale lager, of course, with a strongly industrial (and even slightly chemical) feel to it. dreamer (189) - PORTUGAL - NOV 11, 2015
Crystal clear golden, with nice big white head. Good retention. Light to medium carbonation, light to medium body. Texture is watery to oily. Aroma is roasted grain, rice and corn. Almost no hops. Taste is lightly sweet to lower bitterness. Aftertaste is long and malty. For gluten free beer is a nice beer. sjorsvdg (538) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2015
Dit bier heeft een moutachtige en redelijk sterke geur, waarin ook gist te herkennen is. Smaak is idem dito: duidelijk hop aanwezig. Ook is er een honingtoon te ontdekken. MrHangover (4559) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear golden beer with a thin white head on top. Aroma of malts, slightly cardboard and vanilla with some grassy notes. Flavor is sweet and bready, very malty and has a long, soft sweet finish. Low carbonation, decent lager actually. 77ships (9828) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 5, 2015
330 ml. bottle. BBF 07/16. Clear golden, small, patchy industrial lager head. Nose is corn, hugely oily, vegetable & plain Doritos. Taste is oily, corn, corn chips, plastic, no bad notes, touch ice water, light dough. Body is mineral, touch iron, dough. Nothing bad & actually better than most pale lager, quite surprising. One of the best macro pale lagers I have ever had actually. I cannot imagine a better gluten free offering if you are into macro pale lagers, I prefer this one over the vast majority of pale lagers I have had. Best pale gluten free beers period, you need to look at Mikkeller & To Øl offerings.

330ml bottle, Tesco. Malty, grassy aroma. Flavour follows as expected - malty, similar to a Csech pilsner in some respects. Not at all bad, quite good actually. Marcius (442) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - OCT 11, 2015

bottle, at luv burger in samara, costa rica. pale and yellow with a frothy head and plenty of lacing; ricey character - sake-like suggestions of peach and plum; some pond scum flavour, faint bitterness; so-so lobosaintori (89) - - SEP 14, 2015
My first taste of a Spanish beer. This beverage is marketed as the "best gluten free beer". I don’t know that I can agree with that. Previously I rated another gluten free beer that I actually preferred. This pours light golden with a thin carbonated head. Aroma is decent with that of grass. Taste is soft and somewhat watery. but contains hints of orange,. this beer is a nice gluten free offering to those that like "commercialized " beers such as Bud, but far from the peer of a good craft beer.
