COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You wonít find any astringent sorghum in this beer. Instead we use light-bodied millet, brown rice, sweet potatoes and molasses along with plenty of American hops. This beer has a golden color, aromas of hops and sweet potatoes with a sweet grain flavor and a clean, sorghum-free finish.

Clear brilliant gold, no head, with a big aroma of sweet potato, earthy dirty blonde malts and a touch of molasses. The flavor is smooth and mellow and complex, starting with some corn and yams, melding into an earthy brown rice flavor with a touch of sugar, and lightly herbal hops, and is that a playful note of lemon zest? This isnít just "good for a GF beer", its good all on its own. Well played!

Ratman197 (9454) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Bomber poured a clear tarnished gold with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of caramel, light earthiness and light spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, light earthiness and a hint of fruitiness with a crisp dry finish.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Gold pour with not much in the nose or flavor. Thin bodied, with mild hops and starchiness in the flavor, but doesnít taste good.

Tap at Strange. This beer is empty. There is no flavor to it at all. It is alcoholic, golden-colored, water.

michaelinwa (581) - Bothell, Washington, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle. Clear, light golden brown pour, with a pretty nice floral hop aroma. Flavor does not live up to the aroma, as it has a thin, slightly astringent, and not at all interesting taste. I wonít come back to this.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle. Clear dull amber. Apple juice aroma, plastic, rice cakes, saccharin. Light body, fizzy carbonation, Alka Seltzer tablet effervescence and calcium flavor. Sourish grains / corn / tortilla crumbles. Foul tasting.

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle from taproom. Pours golden with no head. Not much on the nose. Kind of sweet on the tongue. Finishes clean. Not band but not much of an identity.

Butters (3725) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bomber shared with kristen. Pours a clear bright gold with extremely faint ring of clearish head. From the wonderful aromatic citrusy hop profile, you would never guess this is gluten free. It smells just like a regular old american pale ale - and a damn fine one to boot! But the flavor isnít quite as good. Not that itís bad. Itís still much better than most all of itís gluten free brethren, but the sweetness of the molasses and cloying nature make it a little unpleasant. But if I couldnít drink regular beer, Iíd totally be into this! Really good job for what it is.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bomber from Appalachian Vintner, Asheville. Pours a hazy pale orange color with a large fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of earthy, grainy notes with lots of citrus hops. The taste is faint, pale malts, nuts, honey, very strong citrus hops with a bit of a tropical note. Medium bodied, fizzy carbonation, off balance.

TheBeerGod (5168) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle. Hazy gold with a short, bubbly white head. Aroma is surprisingly hoppy and floral with a candy-ish note. Taste is sweet with caramel notes, soft molasses, rice notes and flowery soap notes. Body is light-medium and kind of thin at times with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more candy-ish notes, rice, potatoes and soft hops. These gluten-free beers just really arenít worth it. Feel sorry for beer drinkers with Celiacs.
