Bottle 50cl.
Clear medium amber color with a small, virtually none appearance, virtually none lancing, fully diminishing, head. Aroma is moderate fruity sweet, heather honey, light to moderate vinous. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average duration. Body is medium to light, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. (170508)

KimJohansen (10498) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2008
Clear golden with tiny white head. Vague aroma with mild hoppy notes. Sweet fruity flavor with caramel, peach and apples. Almost no bitterness in the finish.

50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with an off-white head. Mild citrusy hoppy aroma. Flavour is mild sweet citrus fruity. Very delicate hops flavour with a vague maltbase (obviously) but it seems in balance somehow. Mild sweet finish with a growing dry- and bitterness.

Bottle.33cl. Aroma like New carstel brown ale, sweet like hell and out off this world full of diacetyl.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2007
Bottled. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is sour berries, paper, oranges and hops. Flavour is overly riped fruits, flowery hops, paper and some spices.

Coppery amber. Sweet malt aroma. This was a brave attempt to produce a gluten free beer. Unfortunately the taste resembles nothing more than a shandy made with diet lemonade and a can of ’value’ beer’.

Grovlam (4257) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle. Having friends with gluten and wheat allergy, I was happy to find the GFA and GFL which enabled them to enjoy a beer with us. For them it was fantastic to be able to share and experience something different then the usual dull mass produced beer with nothing that resembles malt. Large light brown creamy head that mostly lasted. Good display of thick lacework. Clear sparkling body with a dark amber color. Aroma of sweet malt and fruit, brown sugar, nutty and caramel, some spice and yeast. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sweet fruity flavor with a hint of bitterness. Fruity sweet finish. Nothing spectacular and very different to a regular Bitter, but still quit nice and drinkable I thought. Especially if you have allergy!

[Bottle from Peckhams] Oh. My. God. This is absolutly dreadful, certainly one of the worst beers I have ever tasted. VERY sweet, caramel, fruit concentrate. Eugh.

RoyceH (1200) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JUN 10, 2007
Dark amber, thin off-white head that fades quickly. Sourness immediately then hops. Grapefruit in the mouth, more sourness unoccupied by any other taste. Citrusy and ok if you don’t know better. Flimsy palate, kinda sweet and uninteresting with that mouthwash feel at the back of the throat. Shame, promised so much.

cgarvieuk (26365) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 3, 2007
Deep ruby, grapefruit malt nose , very full flavour, little mouth fizz, sherberty and quite lemony on palate
