2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Pours fizzy yellow amber with a small white head that dissipates almost immediately with minimal lacing and large bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of corn syrup and pine hops. Flavor is medium sweet, honey or corn syrup, with spruce, pine, and a bit of spiciness. Light bitter finish. Medium body and fizzy in the mouth, sweetish aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Pours a mostly clear tannish color with a moderate off-white head that dissipates quickly. Nose actually seems apply to me, with just a bit of grains coming in at the end. Taste is like a dry crappy cider, with just a bit of apple to it. Some odd dirt is coming through.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 12 ounce can provided graciously by bytemesis. Thanks! Pours a pale gold with a white head of foam that has decent retention. The aroma is grassy and sort of resinous. Taste is drily bitter with a weird sweetness on the verge of tartness. Kinda soapy. I donít know how I really feel about this one. Itís not really doing it for me.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
NV Whole Foods bottle. I know Iíve said it before but man am I glad Iím not gluten intolerant...Boring, pale yellow pour. Aroma started like sweet hops but quickly moves into a weird gym-shoe smell. Itís a BIG flavor but reminds me of alka-seltzer and green apples. Bold, not really good and why in the world is this 8+ ABV?

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This is a gluten free beer that tastes kind of beer-like but not quite. It is crystal clear golden in the glass and mostly headless. It actually smelled like a nice, hoppy APA upon opening and I thought for a brief second I was in for something that wasnít going to be all that bad. Unfortunately, that moment didnít last and the aroma quickly waned to a sort of light honey-like floral aroma. The flavor is a little bit sweet and apple-y and quite bitter in an earthy grassy kind of way. It seems to me like these gluten free beers should taste more like regular beers but they always taste all kinds of strange. They get this cheap rum kind of character from being brewed from too much sugar is my guess but I really have no idea. Anyway, Iíd leave this stuff alone unless you just have to drink something that calls itself beer and canít consume gluten.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours straw yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grain, lemon, and thatís about it. Not much flavor with no hop bite. Bit of a skunked aftertaste. Thin body. Not much to it.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The lack of proper malt gives this a real sharp punch with the specialist gluten free. Mild hops give this a fizzy drink

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
So this gluten-free beer from a 50Ę end-of-stock bin at Binnyís 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.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
[Can] Fizzy yellow pour with no meaningful head on top. Aromas of green apple and wet grass. Tastes like cheap champagne, sweet apples and sickening residual sugars. Legitimately terrible. Almost a drain pour.
