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.

A - Pours a clear golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind some light lace. S - Aroma is a mix of grains, sweet potato, molasses, and floral hops with a touch of citrus hops. T - Starts off with a mix of sweet potato, grains, and a touch of orange and citrus hops. Through the middle, the molasses comes through with some floral hops and a hint of bitterness. The finish is a mix of molasses, sweet potato, grains, and floral hops. M - Medium-minus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and grainy finish. D - Very drinkable. Really interesting mix of flavors, like the sweet potato, but the balance is actually very good.

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!

22 ounce bottle. For starters I did not think of this as a traditional beer (barley based). It is very refreshing, easy to drink. This is a tasty beverage. Sour apple, fruity,pear, I think I will have to get more. Great job Epic!

Solid GF beer. Thereís that metallic sorghum thing going on, but itís muted compared to many others. This acts and feels like a real beer, with a nice hoppy backbone.

blipp (5977) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Draft. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet grainy aroma, with light floral hops and a strange almost spicy hint. The flavor is sweet and grainy, with flowery notes, maple sugar and a weird spicy note that must come from the sweet potatoes. Pretty good.

ben4321 (3849) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Location: Draft at HopsScotch, 8/31/12

Aroma: The nose of this beer is light fruit, spice and floral notes
Appearance: This one pours a clear gold color with no head or lace
Flavor: It has a taste that is fairly mild, it is light sweet, with a light hop bitterness
Palate: The body of this beer is light, it has a clean and smooth feel, and a decent finish
Overall Impression: Overall, I thought that this was a decent beer. It is drinkable, and fine enough, but didnít do anything for me beyond that.

Butters (3745) - 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.

OK, a unique beer.

Bomber from the brewery. Of course, this is an odd beer. Pours a clear golden color with very little head retention. A sweet lemon and ginger nose. The flavor almost reminds me of a herbal infused cider with apples and light metal, some sweet potato, grains. Very unusual, but drinkable. Better than the sorghum beers Iíve had.

ekoerper (588) - Iowa, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Aroma: tea, spices, apple cider, quite floral, some caramelized sugars. Appearance: light golden color, faint haze, fizzy white head dissipates immediately. Flavor: floral, herbal tea, slight molasses sweetness, a bit of sweet potato, some pine, tropical fruit. Palate: light body, medium carbonation. Overall: interesting brew, definitely drinkable, and a solid product for those unfortunate souls who canít deal with the grains.
