3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Pilsner glass.
Appearance: Clear, pale gold with foamy white head and light bubbly lacing.
Aroma: Grainy, peppery and slightly skunky. Yep, smells like a Euro Lager. There is some nice apple as well.
Taste: Apple and straw are prominent. Lots of pepper on the finish, with a mild bitterness.
Palate: Moderately high carbonation, light body, surprisingly dry and crisp finish.
Overall: Can’t tell that this had the gluten removed at all, as it tastes like a Euro Lager should, and a better than average Euro Lager at that. However, this is not my favorite style. This makes me wonder if the gluten could be removed from other beers (say an IPA) and still retain its flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This tastes pretty normal for a gluten free beer. It is clear and golden with a small had of soapy bubbles. This has a pleasant herbal hop character with some nice fresh malty notes. It is just slightly sweet with firm earthy bitterness in the finish. This is medium bodied with crisp but not prickly carbonation. This is a tasty beer, might even qualify as a legit pilsener.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized frothy white head. Decent head retention. Grainy aroma, some nutty notes and grassy hops. The taste is bitter hops, grain and a bit of toastiness. Medium bodied. Solid beer overall and excellent for a gluten free offering.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint glass. Light straw color with a finger of head. Fair amount of bubbles visible. Looks nice.
Smells of honey, little spice and slight metallic. It smells better than most other beers in this style.
Pretty tasty too. Honey, mild bitter hops with some dryness to them, a malty sweetness to close it out. It has the slightest metallic taste in the background.
Crisp and light body with moderate carbonation.
Surprise to me. I’m enjoying this beer. By far the best Euro pale lager I’ve had.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear yellow with a thin white head, typical but acceptable. Crisp aroma is malty with fruity and hay tones. Fruity flavor has undertones of malt and hay - not too shabby for gluten-free. Texture is average in the fizz and viscosity departments. Overall, a decent brewski.

This was a nice lager. Another beer that's hard to tell its gluten free. Cheers for beating the stereotype.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pale lager brewed for the Mediterranean palate. More of a thirst quencher thana sipper, it’s a decent lager and better than any North American mss market lager. Refreshing...

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle at home, poured into a shaker glass. ABV 5,4%
Pale golden yellow colour on the body, with minimal activity in it. One finger of snow white soapy head, with low retention and very light lacing left on the glass.
Not much of an aroma, just some faint sweet malts.
Tastes good and in comparison with the other gluten free beer I had, this ones tastes great. But only in comparison, by itself it doesn’t stand out of any other pale lager out there. At least men with gluten allergy can drink a decent beer. Sweet, some malts and very discreet apple.
Light on the body, average carbonation.
Very good beer if we are talking about gluten free beers.
