An all-sorghum beer. New Grist, a beer for Celiacs brewed from sorghum and gluten-free yeast grown on molasses. New Grist is the first “official” gluten free beer in the U.S., although it cannot technically be called “gluten-free” until established governmental guidelines are determined for all products claiming “gluten-free” status. In the interim, this Celiac-safe beer can be called “barley-free,” and is a welcome product to those who need to live on restricted diets due to intolerance to gluten, a protein found in common brewing grains such as barley, wheat, rye, oats, spelt, kamut and triticale.

Bottled. Super light Pilsner. Fruity hops and very light. Has a ricey taste. Pretty poor Pilsner

We’re calling this the stolen-from-gluten-free-dad-because-it-is-the-only beer. And. It. Is. A. Mess. Light, light golden with a little white head. The taste is bitter, a little acidic, a touch of ginger, free of any of the lovely hay or cereal malty goodness that is beer. So your gluten sensitive? Take the hit and drink a beer that is twice as good as this one - say Coors Light.

Bottle at Cohill’s. I had some hope for this but as with other sorghum beers it’s just bad. Thin body with sweet flavor almost like a cider. There are much better gluten free beers out there. I couldn’t finish it.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle that expires 16 Aug 2015. Straw yellow heady pour. Thin aroma of toasted malts and a bit of lemon. Thin watered down body. Thin flavor but the lemon stands out some. Hard to like this beer but it serves a purpose for people on gluten-free diets. My lowest rating in a long time.

This poured a lightly straw yellow with a white head. Aroma of hay, grass, and grain. Flavor was of bland mash water. Bleh.

12 oz single from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Gold and clear with a white head and light lacing. Minimal aroma, minimal flavor, light body. Kind of tough to drink really. I’ve had a few gluten-free beers that were tolerable, but this is not. A very rare drain pour candidate for me. Very bland. Update: Couldn’t finish it... An extreme rarity.

Bottle at home. Pours light yellow with high carbonation. Aroma is fruity. Flavor follows. Very light bodied. Decent gluten free option. But not otherwise. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear with minimum head. Taste is dull and watered down. Champagne undertones with lack of hops.
