This lager has character, it's very smooth yet every swallow has a statement to say. It's not pretentious. It's not trying to rock your world. It just wants you to enjoy.

Also, it's gluten free for those who are sensitive to that. I am not, so I am not factoring that into the review.

you cant judge something like this against all beers, but against its gluten free peers, its no doubt one of the best. its incredibly light, pure tasting to me, like when really good water has flavor, thats whats happening here, and it really makes this seem high quality in a space where a lot of these feel cheap. bright yellow color, fizzy but not a ton of head or lace along with in, and an aroma of fresh pils type malt, well achieved in here, and a light fruity hoppiness thats more than most pale lagers but makes it necessarily beery. the lager yeast is flavorless, i thought it might be more pils-esque from the nose, not i dont mind its absence, somehow the grain profile has plenty of character, and with the little bit of hops at the end, there is balance and even some depth for what this is. it drinks like beer, and thats all i really ever wanted from one of these. in its space, it has to be near the front of the pack, bubbly and light and real drinkable, i would even prefer this next to some full gluten light lagers. very well done!

Clear gold with two finger of five minute head. Rings of lace form the liquid level falls.
Smell is grain bin with some floral hops.
Taste is slight sweetness with balanced amount of floral hops.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation. Finish is lightly dry and balanced.
Overall a tasty easy drinking lager. Quite enjoyable .

I don't understand why people are rating this low because they say it's not Hoppy...really???>> If you want hoppy then get the other Gluten Free Ale that is more like an IPA. This is not meant to taste HOPPY... If you are expecting that, you bought the wrong beer.

This tastes like a regular bud light. Its light and refreshing, and actually for a Gluten Free beer it's darn good. If you want something hoppy there are plenty of IPA GF beers. This is not one of them.
