3.6/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

330ml bottle served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear pale golden yellow forming a medium to small fluffy soapy and very bubbled white head. Minimum retention and some thin lacings formed and left in the glass. A very thin layer remain on the top forever

S: Very grainy. Strong notes of sweet pale malts. Extremely bready. Some flowery hops

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Sweet grains, mainly. Very crispy. Bready low fermentation-like yeasts. Mild hops bitterness. In overall, a dry and crispy taste

M: Smooth and light body. Medium to low carbonation. Grainy aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. Standard Euro Lager. I've bought this beer because I suspect that I'm intolerant to Gluten and, coincidentally, I'll be making blood exams this week to figure this out. Interesting enough, I'm feeling quite well after drinking this one. Not because it's a good beer but because I have the impression the the exams will confirm my suspicions. In this case, I feel happy that I can count with this sort of initiative.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

This one pours a clear blonde to golden color with a thick rich slow settling head that leaves significant lacing down the glass.

The nose is peppery and spicy with a strong maltiness and hints of fruit like apples and white grapes.

The flavor is bold with a nicely if not a tad off balanced malt to hop taste. The hops definitely dominate. The malt is strong and fruity but the hops are stronger and dominate. this one is off balanced but it works well.

The mouthfeel is a tad watery for my personal taste. But does not take away for the overall in my opinion.

Overall this ins very drinkable and enjoyable lager. Much better than my expectations based on some other review. I would really like to drink this one again.

as gluten free beers go, I like this one, still has the flavor of barley, not sorghum or some other brutal sugar. however, as regular pale lagers go, this is pretty bad. its over the top sweet, and even with its very pale golden color, it drinks like a glass of molasses. way too much residual sweet here, it kills any subtle malt flavors and makes all the jovial carbonation for naught. almost tastes like a wheat malt base, light and floral a little. it is similar to the mother beer, the regular damm, which I liked quite a lot for what it is. this one lacks the cleanness in the finish that made the other one so great. the sweetness hangs around and the beer feels heavy as a result. still, for the gluten free folks out there I would recommend this, only because there are so few good options for you. omission pale ale still ranks as the best gluten free brew ive had, hands down. this does avoid the usual macro euro metallic malt vibe though, which is a great service to itself and its consumers!
