I was lucky enough to taste this beer early on, before the other gluten-removed hit the market. At that time I was enamored with the taste. It was the first beer that was brewed with barley that I was able to taste in over 10 years. I hadn’t realized it before, but the taste that I was looking for in other gluten-free beers was in fact barley. Estrella does a job of making sure you don’t miss it here. It’s taste is a major feature of this beer.
This is the type of light lager that you may expect from Europe. It is a beer that isn’t over-bearing, and is great for drinking at outdoor events.
This beer is light and bubbly in appearance, and has a strong “malt” flavor it it. It finishes smooth, and is very drinkable.
