The Verdict

When Green’s Beers very kindly sent us a selection of their beers to sample, my husband suggested that he was just the man for the job.  The Export Lager Lite was the first of Green’s Beers that we tested and it made a very good first impression.

As expected with a low alcohol lager (this one contains 2.8%) it didn’t have much of an aroma to it.  The same couldn’t be said for the taste which screamed “quality”.  It had a nice light flavour comparable with a quality German Lager such as Bitburger.   The beer had a good consistent head which stayed right until the very bottom of the glass.  This would make a really nice light and refreshing lunchtime drink.

You are left with a nice hoppy aftertaste – one bottle just isn’t enough!

Designated drivers would love this, a much nicer alternative than a shandy.

This Export Lager Lite stands up as a quality beer in it’s own right, the fact that it is gluten-free is the icing on the cake.

It comes as no surprise to hear that Export Lager Lite was commended in the Gluten-Free Beer category (barley based beer section) of of  The FreeFrom Food Awards 2013.  Green’s Dry Hopped Lager won First Place in the Non-Barley section of the Gluten-Free Beer Category.
