Bottle. Gold bodied with a short, fading white head. Aroma is rather hoppy and pleasant with soft grain-like notes and floral notes. Taste is also hoppy with slightly fruity undertones, grain-like notes and hints of biscuit and bread dough. Light lemony notes as well. Body is light-medium with a mild, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more floral and grassy hops, sweet malt-like flavors, soft fruit and faint biscuit. mkel07 (6195) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2017
270217.Bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Just not feeling it with this beer. Initially looks very clear when poured into the glass. White head and dull lemon rind colour. The flavour is okay and a bit basic. Thin bodied with a light finish. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a semi - hazy yellow color with a two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Lacing was all over the place.
The smell had a sweet corn.
The taste took that sweet corn and made it slightly crisp.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was pretty subdued.
Overall not a bad premium lager. I could go at this again. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Wow I can’t believe thi is gluten free beer, very clean and crisp, light I really like it ganache (6007) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle. Sweet lemony citrus in the nose with a little PNW dry hopping, very enticing, with a super pale yellow pour with a short white head. Crisp, stern full lager body, hard but not unforgiving, and the sunniness helps soften things a bit. Taste is clean and fresh, light lemony citrus with faint breadiness at the end but it’s hard water sailing to that point, there’s only some fizziness in the flat-leaning feel, and despite the Pilsner airs the better descriptor is definitely ’Premium Lager’.

Overall ’OK’, but a gluten-free offering I’d be ecstatic about finding if I had celiac -- it actually tastes like beer!
Pours pale yellow into a shaker. Bright white head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sweet caramel and grass aromas. Soft and thin with bread and grass front to back. Stale lasting finish. Cybercat (5962) - Georgia, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Crisp, malty aroma is typical of a lager, but doesn’t scream "gluten-free." Pours a rather wan yellow with not much of a white head that quickly takes its leave. Flavor has a nice malty note and a hint of fruit, with a subtle hoppy undertone - not much going on here. Smooth texture lacks somewhat in both fizz and firmness. Still, a good effort. One of these days, someone will brew a truly good gluten-free beer. cheap (5960) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Smell wasn’t bad but I thought it to be a little plasticky and slightly volatile. Taste is a little more sharper on the astringent side than i was expecting. Good co2 keeps it somewhat refreshing. When I first tasted it I thought it a little rude but it grows on you during the session. This probably shouldn’t be in the premium lager category, JMHO. A little medicine like on the finish. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 1, 2015

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 5/5/2016. Pours fairly crystal clear pale straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast notes present. Moderate dryness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.6%. Overall this is a very good Pale lager. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
