UPDATED: JAN 27, 2012 Can. yellow colour with a white head. Very light and plain. Light malty and light hoppy aroma and flavour larsga (7542) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2008
Biggish white head. Deep yellow body. Grain and straw aroma. Dryish grainy corn taste with some sweetness and watery notes. Very faintly buttery. Watery, soft mouthfeel. Dryish papery aftertaste with grassy metallic notes. Drinkable, but not good.

[Saxon 4.1] Poured a dark golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasty dough, maybe some toffee, and light citrus. Clean, crisp taste of more toffee, somewhat sweet (maybe corn), with very low bitterness. No offensive flavors, this is a nice thirst quencher. Thanks Craig for picking this up at the 12 annual International Celiac Disease symposium in NYC.

Originally rated on 20100820.
Pours clear pale golden color with a small head. Aroma of starch, malts and hay. Flavor of hay, malts and fruit notes.
Can 500 ml at home, as Saxon Gluten Free beer, ABV 4.1%, into a Guinness pint glass.
Golden yellow colour on the body, with good activity in it, initially at least. Small white head, forathy, wtih okay retention, leaving light lacing around the glass.
Aroma of grass mainly, heavy malts aroma like the one you meet on non alcoholic beers, a bit of corn.
Taste is better than I expected, but with plenty of metal on it. A bit of grass and straw fill the list.
Thin body, quite carbonated.
Overall okay, I have had worse gluten free beers. SamTheBarrel (804) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2017
500ml can labelled Saxon poured into a lager glass. Appearance is clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of grass, cereal and mineral notes. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Palate is light bodied, watery texture and average carbonation. The beer is okay considering it is a gluten-free lager (and also the oldest mass-produced one as far as I know). I give extra points for including the specific nutritional values on the label. The whole 500ml can is "only" 150kcal and 7.5gram sugar, which makes this the best nutritional values I have seen in a gluten-free beer. But I think the beer tastes a little too sweet anyway considering the measly 4.1% ABV, they could have upped the ABV and lessened the sweetness. ekstedt (6790) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2007
Can, 50 cl (Saxon). Clear golden, medium frothy white head. Grainy, honeyish malt, no hop profile. Light bodied and a bit watery. A bit sweet with low but still tangible bitterness. Ok if served cold on a hot day. faroeviking (10913) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUL 9, 2009
Can. Clear pale goldenish colour, short white head. Bit sweet corn grainy aroma. Flavou the same along with a mild maltiness and some bitter hoppishness.
