3.5/5 rDev +8.4%
Pours out straw yellow with a frothy two finger white head. The head retention is excellent, as it keeps a half finger head and sticks all over the glass through out the life of the beer. Plenty of carbonation bubbles rush to the top of the lager.
The aroma is pretty typical for a Euro Pale Lager. Light grassy hop mixed with a slightly sweet malt. Nothing bad but nothing that stands out either.
The taste is a bit more hopped than the average Euro Pale. Some mild hints of citrus, mixed with light malt sweetness. Even a small hint of honey, but very mild. Very clean finish.
Light and carbonated body and very easy to drink.
I gotta say I enjoyed this Euro Pale Lager because the hop character stood out more than other brands.

poured from 11.2oz bottle into pint glass
A-pale yellow with about a 2 finger head that fades quickly with a little lacing
S-sweet corn skunkiness is the dominant smell that comes across for me
T-not quite as sweet cornins as I thought that I would get judging by the smell
M-thin and watery
O-when I was pouring this it looked really thin and watery and while it was thin it was not as bad as I thought and the smell was a lot skunkier than the taste. So overall not bad if you need a quick thirst quencher

Part of a mixed 6 pack.
Best by June 2012.
It pours like any other Euro Pale Lager, a bright dark yellow and brings a good 2 finger head of foam. The lacing is good for the style.
There's a little bit of sweet and a little bit of bitter in the smell. I'm not getting any scent of corn so that's a plus.
For a gluten free beer, this tastes pretty good. It's more bitter than sweet; plain bitterness that I can't associate with the usual suspects like citrus or pine but it's not offensive in any way. The sweet part, obviously can come from malt but it comes across, to me at least, as a sort of honey like sweetness.
This is not something I'd grab by the 6er but for what it is, it's not too shabby. Best gluten free beer? I'll take their word for it as others I've tried were no ways near this good and I'm not about to make it my life's mission to find a better one..

3.43/5 rDev +6.2%
A - Nice pale yellow color, good head retention, mediocre lacing
S - Typical lager smell - slightly hoppy, not much by way of maltiness or esthers
T - Slightly bitter, similar to other European Lagers
M - Light, good carbonation, no noticeable creaminess
O - Good, but not great lager. Would be a nice beer while doing outdoor chores as it goes down nice, but not what I'd want on most occasions.

3.75/5 rDev +16.1%
A: Clear, golden-yellow; very thick, frothy white head with good retention and decent lacing.
S: Typical lager, with grain foremost and hops supporting.
T: Medium-sweet malt. Not much complexity of flavors. The hops added a little bitterness and spice, actually a pretty good balance.
M: Crisp and dry (slightly astringent).
O: I'd never had a gluten-free beer, so I gave this one a try to find out how it stacked up. It wasn't outstanding, but it would be perfectly acceptable if I couldn't consume gluten. Actually, it was reminiscent of a slightly-sweet Stella Artois. I'll certainly recommend it to celiac-disease friends who like beer.

This beer pours a very light bodied and crystal clear bright polished gold in color with a one finger quickly dissipating white head. The nose consists of slightly sweet pale malts with a grainy side to it. It smells like a Dortmunder really. The flavors are light with a slightly sweet pale maltiness and a cereal-esque, clean dry finish. It's not too bad. It's like a lighter, easier to drink pale lager. It's really light and refreshing. Overall, this beer isn't too bad and at $8.99 a four pack not overpriced compared to other Euro lagers.

received a 4pk as a gift - reviewing while drinking the 4th(not in a row) - pours a straw-yellow with a 1/2-finger head - significant lacing down the glass - has that beer hall smell - lots of grain/cereal - I found the taste almost off-putting, but in this last bottle I'll say it's not terrible - good carbonation helps - kind of a dry finish - so if you gotta go gluten free...

Appearance: Pours a translucent, light yellow body with a white foam film.
Smell: A light sniff of cereal maltiness with a thin hint of floral, spicy hops.
Taste: A base of modest, malted barley with a dash of confectioners sugar. Moderate acidity. Hint of graininess. Mild hop character, bitterness. Drying, smooth, clean finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Moderate carbonation.
Overall: Among the gluten-free beers it truly shines, as I've never enjoyed the use of repellent sorghum.

A: A strong explosive effervesce is dense,and quick to move through the pale orange body that displayed a high rate of visibility. The head was bread white, frothy, with a solid height of 1 finger. Retention was good, as well the stickage on the glass that left a spongy band.
S: Sweet toasted cereal grains, think rice krispies, with a touch of lemon and butterscotch ever so faint.
T: The flavor was sweet overall, buttered and toasted cereal grains, lemon with a touch of orange flower, honey and sweet floral mentions. Honestly not bad of a start, but has a starchy finish with some mention of warming flower hops.
M: Light mouthful, a bit of a watery-syrupy feel, the carbonation is quick to die out, after a strong start hurting the crisp factor ending up with a lazy mouthful.
O: With exception of the mouthful, an average euro-pale when compared within style. Mediocre drinkability, an overall average experience and what you would expect.

Pours a clear golden body with three fingers of bright white foam that beautifully laces the glass. Aromas typical for the style: grains and honey with some light hay or straw. Taste is consistent with the nose and is better than most other Euro-lagers in that it is free of any sort of artificial/chemical funkiness. Easy to drink, nothing super ponderous.

Crystal clear and light yellow in color, with a half inch of white head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. The aroma is subtle, but offers some light scents of malt and pilsner. Very light in body. Smooth feel and goes down easy. Lacking complexity, but easy to throw back a pint or two. Just a slight sweetness, with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Overall, a good choice if you are seeking a gluten free beer.
