Half-litre bottle: best before 11 Sep 2013, poured @ home into three stemmed Pilsner glasses on a random tasting evening on 23 Nov 2012.

Gluten free: this looked your typical pale pilsner but has a sweet aroma and taste. Normal small white head that disappears before it arrives and as you'd expect a golden, clean apperance.

struggled to drink my third of the bottle to be honest: just too sweet and tasteless. Arty, farty front label gave the brew an interesting packaging, but the product was toothless as well as flavourless.

Glutenfree and according to the label it contains syrup, malt-aroma, beer-aroma.

A: Pours pale golden with some small bubbles. The white head is creamy but light, medium-tall. Poor lacings.

S: Very sweet, honey-like - no malt, something else. Citric notes and bitter hops. It doesn't smell like a German Pilsener.

T: Very sweet! Honey and hard candy, no malt. It's like they packed suger in this one. Some bitter hops, but this isn't pleasant.

M: Aftertaste is not long, but too long, it's very sweet. Body is medium while carbonation is flat.

O: As a German Pilsener this is a disaster, but if you are allergic to gluten this might be a good choice, but I'm grateful I can choose beers with gluten.
