Pale Yellow Color, Medium Bubbly Head Dissipates Quickly, No Lacing. Cider or Champaign Like Aroma that reminds me of Apples. Tastes like champaign, apples, citrus, light bitter ending. Waaaay over carbonated, very hard to drink until. Have to wait for fizz go away, makes it easier to drink. Thank God, This one has no Sorghum in it, so it is actually drinkable and somewhat enjoyable Glutten Free option for people that need it. OK for what it is...

The aroma has hops and grains with a slight yeast quality. The appearance is straw gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall drinkable for the gluten free crowd.

The lack of proper malt gives this a real sharp punch with the specialist gluten free. Mild hops give this a fizzy drink ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can pours clear gold with thirty second near white head of weak foam. The aroma drags up modest levels of sugary sweetness, a dry white paper earthy note and a couple of slivers of citrus fruit. As it warms it gets more Malt Liquor like with slightly chemical and pear to apple fruitiness. The taste has bitter lemon to lime to grapefruit sort of citrus notes that have a vague sort of sugary backbone to them helping to keep them grounded. The hop notes seem to stray into a bit of hop leaf astringency near midway and then again into the finish and that keeps the flavor from coming together in a cohesive manner. I think if this was a little closer to 40F serving temp and I was outside in the heat this might be a suitable choice.

From can. Clear gold pour with a fizzy head. A sour, soapy, fizzy weird concoction of a beer that only a evil magician could create. Pass.

So this gluten-free beer from a 50¢ end-of-stock bin at Binny’s finally lets me tick Nevada off my list of states. Like most GF brews, it pours with a lot of fizz and a fizzy, gluey head that goes away quickly. Pale straw color. It is missing the sour apple smell of a lot of sorghum-based beers. But the smell remaining is mostly mineral water. But the taste just is not worth the trip. Some fizz with stale pear juice and curdled milk from the rice. Some hop bite, at least. But with the new methods for deglutenizing malt beers, this one needs to decide if it wants to stay in the picture.

I have tried many Gluten Free Beers and this is the first one I ever had that tasted like a real beer . I also like that its the first gluten free beer in a can. If you need a Gluten Free alternative...this is the best to date

Wittales (564) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Appearance was clear yellow with creamy diminishing white 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are citrus fruits, grain or rice nose. Taste are simple rice,grains, then lemon, apple, orange dominate flovour. Palate was crispy smooth CO2 with light body, lasting citrusy finish. For no malts very refreshing brew.

Appearance is aweful. Looks like a cheap commercial beer. Would not but it again. Not worth it!
