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.

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.

1.9 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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 12 ounce can. Looks like cider. The aroma is grainy with some apple. The flavor tasty green apple, green apple skin-tannic. Not very good as a beer, but as a gluten free beverage it is not bad. I do not want another one.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Although there is a decent amount of hops in the finish that impart a certain punch and bitterness, it is the upfront flavor which is rather odd in this one. I have not been a fan of any of the sorghum beers I have tried and this one is not an exception, though the use of hops has probably made it the best so far.

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.

Had at the Great Arkansas Beer Festival 2014. Pours clear yellow with a fizzy white dissipating head. Among the GF beers Iíve had, this one is one of the better ones. Cidery and light, but it was drinkable.

12oz bottle thanks to here4beer. Pours a hazy bright straw yellow with a small white head. Aroma reminds me of peach gummy rings. Taste is sweet fruits into medicinal alcohol burn. Iíve tasted far worse gluten-free beers. If I couldnít have gluten this might be an alright choice.
