I have only had one gluten free beer earlier but since it was quite okay (actually better than a normal Euro Lager) I decided to try this one from Tennent's as their others are quite good.
Was it because it is gluten free - and as such, it is usually a "cleaner" beer - it is perhaps closer to an American Adjunct for being clear filtered and quite crisp. Its look and smell foremost, there was nothing reminding me of the rotten yeast of the Euro Lagers, it was quite smooth, clean and crisp.
Same with the flavour, although being a bit on the thin side, it is quite drinkable. Its carbonation is okay although accumulates a bit by the end of the sip together with a slightly bitter aftertaste.
Easy to drink, enjoyable, light hearted (?) light lager, still better than most out there.

From a 330ml bottle, pours a clear pale yellow almost a straw colour with a medium off white head.
Aroma malt, grass, lemon.
Taste grass, lemon, pretty descent for a gluten free beer.
