Gluten free is becoming a trend it seems, not surprised that Widmer has jumped aboard with light examples of this beer type.

A- Golden yellow and ultra clear with a very foamy but fizzy white head. Retention is very low and the head disappears completely quite fast. No lace in sight.

S- Smell fairly reminiscent of Bud or similar American Light Lagers. Adjunct malts and light sweets. A tiny hint of fruit.

T- Lager yeast and bread mixed with light cracker malt sweets. Tiniest bit of hops and fruit in the finish.

MF- Light body with a fairly creamy feel. Small hint of bitterness.

I think they omitted much more than just the gluten here. It isn't nearly offensive but hardly brings any flavor or interest to the table.
