330ml bottle, part of a relative slew of new gluten-free re-imaginings of existing Mikkeller products, coming in at less than 20ppm.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium golden yellow colour, with four fat fingers of puffy, densely foamy, and mildly creamy off-white head, which leaves some sudsy layered cloud lace around the glass as it very slowly sinks away.

It smells of peppy citrus fruit - white grapefruit and dry orange rind - a flinty stoniness, crackery pale malt, a further touch of lemon peel, ethereal gasohol, and leafy, grassy, and sort of herbal hops. The taste is grainy, gritty pale malt, white saltine crackers, muddled, but still fairly heady dry citrus, fading petrol notes, and flat-lining earthy, weedy, and dead grassy hops.

The carbonation is average in its fizzy and frothy emanations, the body on the lee side of medium weight, and generally smooth, a minor flinty affectation nosing its way in. It finishes quite dry, and very pilsner-esque, with the crackery malt and grassy, mildly gassed-up hops.

Like the other few recent G-F offerings I've tried from Mikkeller, this one hardly differs a whit from the base beer, which leads me to suggest that it uses the enzyme-based removal method, which is validated by simply looking at the ingredient list on the label, I suppose. A distinctly recommendable selection for those old-school Pils lovers who want (or preferably, need) to avoid a full-on gluten frontal.
