Very pale on the pour, about like gasoline. Fine straw gold in the glass, with white, lower side of medium retention, foamy head. Very skunky smelling at first, but gives way to sweeter pale malt aroma. The mildest of lemon up front and throughout, grain in the middle, getting breadier, sweeter from the alcohol, and just barely bitter towards the finish. Higher side of light-bodied, plenty of fine, prickly carbonation. Bubbles up too much to call it crisp.

Threw an extra .25 points in to the overall category for being gluten free. I'm not strictly gluten intolerant, but it does have an effect on me, especially my complexion. Would probably drink even more beer were this not the case.

The best way to describe this is imperial Budweiser. That was my first impression. It tastes alot like Budweiser but the taste profile is stronger.

And to be frank, that is not a good thing. I'm glad I tried it but it is my first and last time trying it.

Playing KB Dark Side, in Legado de Yuste cup. Not one of the worst lagers, and gluten-free!

Poured into a Stella Artois chalice.

Look: Clear golden colored body. White head that recedes to a thick film. Bands of lacing.

Aroma: Slightly skunky, barley, grains.

Taste: Really sweet metallic taste up front. Malted barley, grains, tangy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light.

Overall: Just tastes like another euro pale lager ... a little skunk for a brown bottle though ?

Clear golden colour, with a small head that fades soon, leaving some lace and ring. Aroma of malts, corn. Medium body, average carbonation. Tasted of corn, malt. Just another refreshing boring beer.

Best before end: 9/2015.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain and frosted corn flake aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, grain, and sweetened corn flake flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that still tastes like a normal beer of this style even though it is gluten removed.

Serving type: bottle.

This is a solid option for those with wanting a GF beer. It does the trick. Nice look, smell, and taste even you are not into lagers.

Sampled this evening while enjoying the nice weather on the upper patio deck. Comes in a 330ml (11.2 ounce) bottle and is good until: "10/15". Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a 'Red 7' billiard ball flute glass (I have the whole set of 15).

Brew pours a straw-yellow in color with a good 1-finger foamy white head that finally settled down to a thin layer mostly around the edges after a good while. Some spotty sheets of lacing was seen when sipped. The aroma is of some light grains and hops for the most part. Pretty much is said for the taste as well with a hint of sweet corn. Crisp with a dry finish. Lighter-bodied with good carbonation that is "Crafted to Remove Gluten". Overall, it was just OK.
