Rather anaemic light straw colour with a fairly fluffy head. I suppose that is what one expects froma euro pale lager though. The nose is chalky, like breathing in the chalk dust from under a blackboard.

I was expecting this to taste really nasty given the nose but it is actually quite interesting. It is rather fizzy (heading towards cheap champagne) early on but that works quite well with the tart rhubarb tang which has an early impact. Then alas the chalk takes over for a short while before a pleasantly sweet finish.

This would be eminently drinkable if it weren't for the chalk.

This beer is one from a line of gluen free beers, and I was eager to try something different when I saw it at the local store. The beer pours a pale and relatively (mostly) clear gold color. The head is slight, but leaves a small and delicate lace. The aroma is better than anticipated, with a considerable pale malt qualities and a fresh, clean, lager character. The taste, though, falls completely flat. It's unnecessarily sour, astringent, and one-dimensional. The malt of the aroma is completely gone in the taste. There is no sweetness at all. Very dry, quite tart, and notably grainy. It's not sour in the same way a good complex sour ale is, but rather from an excess of acid. The mouthfeel is slight and straightforward. A bit lower carbonation than usual. I don't think it's a beer gone bad, but instead it's flawed from the onset. This one is a serious letdown from the first impressions.
