According to the Swedish importer this beer is made with a patented method of removing gluten.

A: Pours pale golden with lots and lots of strong bubbles in the liquid. The very tall white airy head dissipates sizzeling, into faint lacings.

S: The malt, semi-sweet is there, as is the noble Saars hops, but in the back there is an artificial smell, detergent-like.

T: Not too shabby; the semi-sweet malt together with hops, both floral and bitter makes this rather interesting. A bit mild in taste, though. Buttery.

M: Long buttery mild bitter aftertaste. Body is almost oily but medium full while carbonation is rich.

O: This is by far the best gluten free beer I've ever had, you could have fooled me this was the real deal. But as a Czech Pilsener, it's rather boring.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 2B). Bottle 33cl - Batch AROMA: semi-sweet aroma. some cardboard. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: deep gold colour and very clear. somewhat thin white head with below average retention. TASTE: semi-sweet flavour that finishes dry. low bitterness. no complexity from malt or hop flavours. PALATE: medium-low body and low carbonation. OVERALL: an uninteresting, watered down, coeliac friendly beer.
