COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You won’t 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.

adnielsen (9481) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilburs Fort Collins. Pours a clear golden yellow appearance with an off white head. A lot of spiciness in the nose along with earthy, herbal notes and a fair amount of spicy hops. Tangy fruity, quite spicy malty, herbal, a bit thin flavor. Better than many of the gluten-free atrocities on the market but still not worth my money.

Drake (9012) - 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.

Gold pour with not much in the nose or flavor. Thin bodied, with mild hops and starchiness in the flavor, but doesn’t taste good.

They aren’t making these other sugars taste much better than sorghum. Sorghum or no sorghum it isn’t great.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a crystal clear golden hued body with a small white head that fades fast. Aromas are earthy, starchy, medium hop presence, mild sweetness, fruity esters. Herbal fruity, citrus and a bit of a mild DMS-like note. Flavors are dry, earthy, starchy, vegital, with some floral hops. Quite bitter with a brief duration of flavors. Light acidity, lots of apple like esters, some fermented molasses notes (I brewed a beer a while back with way too much molasses and it produces a distinct sharp note), honey, light orange. Earthy, soil. Lively bubbles, dry and thin. Not the greatest thing ever, but I am glad I don’t have celiac disease.

Ughsmash (7185) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Bomber. Poured apple juicey golden with no head sticking around. The aroma picked up sweet honey and corn-like notes with some sweet potatoes when you dig deeper.. some odd tanginess that I couldn’t place as well. The flavor found some green apple tanginess throughout, with sweet potatoes and molasses at the core.. fresh, dank earthy bitterness around (light-moderate).. finished with a clash between the tanginess and earthy sweetness.. odd, but it grew on me a bit. Medium-bodied and a touch sharp on the palate.. interesting, but I’ll take my glutens.
