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.

TwoSipDip (8880) - 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.

Pours a bright golden color with light head retention. The nose has some good piney and citrusy notes with hints of gain. The taste reminds me of Grape-Nuts cereal at first then you get a berry tartness that takes over for the most part. The finish is floral and bitter. A medium to light mouthfeel, with a dry spicy aftertaste.

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.

DrSilverworm (5898) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2012
22oz bottle, shared with friends, including one with gluten allergies. Clear yellow color, minimal white head. Little loose lace. Lighter carbonation, dry texture. Something acidic to it. Sort of sour taste and texture that makes you think íciderí, but the aroma is totally potato. Which is interesting, because I like potatoes. Kind of salty, sour taste... Longer aftertaste. My gluten-free friend doesnít like beer to begin with, so she didnít care for this either, BUT she did say sheíd play beer pong with it! I call that a success! Another friend pointed it out that it had some hefe-like features. I am feeling the vanilla / clove notes... Most didnít care for it, overall. Typical for a gluten-free beer. 6.9% is an impressive ABV, though.

Ughsmash (7086) - 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 couldnít 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 Iíll take my glutens.

Ernest (6142) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, resin), with notes of lemon zest, pepper. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Pretty good, at least as far as GF beers go...this definitely lacks the nasty horse feed stink of most sorghum-based beers, and does in fact pretty much resemble ordinary malt odor. This comes off as a hoppy American Wheat in the nose, for the most part. In the mouth itís very tart, like a cider but without any apple character. Highly attenuated; thereís very little sweetness left in this, so itís a bit unbalanced. Still, itís substantially better than most train wrecks in this field, so itís definitely worth a try if you canít stomach gluten.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours golden with a small, white head. Very light sweet aroma with a hint of spices and floral hops. Pretty bland with light sweet potato, molasses and floral notes. Smooth for a gluten-free beer but overall pretty boring.

Beergeek23322 (2127) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours amber color with a fluffy white head. Some fruity notes on the nose, but the sweet potato does not show through well. Medium carbonation. The finish is somewhat sour. Not for me.

Ratman197 (9440) - 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.
