kramer (4989) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear pale straw gold body under a large fizzy white head that left some spotty lacing. The nose is actually pretty decent for a gluten free beer. Smells like a cheap Pale Lager, but that’s way better than most of these, at least it smells like beer. The flavor still has the weird chemical and vegetal like notes that make these sorghum beers stick out from malt based beers. Devoid of hops, which seems to be typical of these beers. Lighter bodied but with a slight clinginess and soft fizzy carbonation. This one could almost pass for beer. Not an especially good one, but a beer none the less.

Bottle: poured a golden with white head. Aroma is soft grain. Taste is soggy cardboard and grain.

Block (1412) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 25, 2014
A light spanish style beer. Would pair great with spicier foods. A pale lager minus the gluten. Pale yellow pour with a white head. Aroma of wheat and grass. Flavor is the same with yeast in the finish.

DrSilverworm (6376) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2014
11.2oz bottle. Shit, I didn’t realize this was going to be gluten free when I bought it. Here we go... Date on the bottle reads 06/14. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Couple bits of lace. Medium body. Lighter, kind of smooth carbonation. Lightly slick, more dry texture though. Actually a pretty nice full body and taste, for a gluten free lager, pretty convincing. Maybe the most convincing european gluten free beer I’ve had yet. Moderate bitter, lightly tart and sweet, some acidic to it. Solid gluten free lager, a lot better, more flavorful, and cleaner than expected.

kevnic2008 (8068) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2014
Pours burnt golden with a little head. Aroma of heavy grassy hops, a tinge of something unpleasant.

HuskerTan (497) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - DEC 27, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. A- Cereal, slightly herby. A- Pale amber color, slightly hazy liquid, minimal head. T- Balance of bitterness and sweetness. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- One of the best gluten free beers I’ve had. Smooth and refreshing. Not a lot of taste but not bad by any means.

klajmajk (102) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 18, 2013
Very light golden color with white rapidly falling head. Both taste and aroma honey ... too much too sweet. This is a very poor beer for me.

Beersmurf (51) - Helsingor, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2013
0,33L bottle. Good hop aroma. Taste could be richer, but i like this sour and little bitter hop, malt game. Finish is bit sweet and nicely bitter. Good one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LasseVPedersen (243) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear and golden color with a medium, decent and stable off-white head. Aroma is light and of grain, little malt skunky, floral and hobs. Taste is crisp, grain, corn and slight dry, bitter finish. Normal body for the type, little above average on the carbonation. Quite ok for a typical mass-produced lager.

alobar (2778) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Very clear yellow pour with decent carbonation. Aroma of skunk, straw, and hint of nuts. Bitter flavor with some sweetness to it. A little more tasty than I anticipated by the color. That’s not saying much.
