Saxon is gluten free but unfortunately not very good. Poured in a golden yellow-ish colour and with very little foam. The initial smell was of metal followed by the generic dish rag sourness of a macro lager. The taste was watery and a little flat with some sugar too. It was pretty awful and thus bad luck for beer aficionados with gluten allergies.
The colour is deep gold, the liquid is clear. The foam quickly sinks down to a white airy lid, leaving some lacing.
The smell is neutral. Some mild bread-like malt, hints of yeast and dough. There are some bitter flavours and a mild sourness.
The taste is quite odd. At first, some sweet notes pass quickly. Then sour notes of old dough and a hint of wheat beer emerges. The taste is thin and there is no body at all. The aftertaste is flat with some fruity flavours, sour notes, some sweetness and a touch of alcohol.
The carbonation is average to strong for a pale lager. The liquid is a little thin, too.
This is probably a welcome innovation for those intolerant to gluten. For the rest of us, it is just another dull lager.
