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.

Thanks to Degarth. Pours a clear golden, thin white head. For a beer with no barley, it’s not bad. Just a crisp refreshing lager style beer. Pretty much no hops and no other real flavors happening some slight sweetness. Really don’t know what to say it’s a better tasting pale lager.

The aroma is sweet and fruity with rice (has a sake smell to it) and what I can only assume is sorghum. The appearance is light pale gold with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. This isn’t one of those beers you compare to the greats as its real value is for those who want a beer but can’t have one due to allergies. And it fits that role well and is quite drinkable.

Pale orange body, thin to almost absent off-white head. Fleeting aroma with grain husks and a strange sour character. The same sourness is the defining characteristic of the lifeless body, which reminds me of significantly watered-down apple juice with a peculiar aftertaste that only becomes apparent after swallowing the "beer." I applaud the brewery for developing a beer possibly safe for Celiacs, but this about as good as gluten-free rice- or tapioca-based bread. Which means not very.

Swear I’ve rated this beer before. This is probably my least favorite of the Lakefront brews. Like the concept and the fact my favorite brewery is willing to take chances, but just not a fan of the beer.

Loads of soda like bubbles coating the inside of the glass. Tons of carbonation. Lively head that looks like soda bubbles again. Light ginger and cornbread aroma. Maybe some cardboard and light fruit. Color is a medium gold. Light and crisp flavor with some light vanilla and a creamy texture. Unusual. Little ginger again and some ricey stuff. Finish is pretty clean with a little bit of malty texture and some light spices and lemon. An ok and refreshing brew.

Bottle. Clear gold. Rocky white head. Nose is odd. Sweet and sort of creamy with a unique rice pudding-like aroma. Taste is sweet and creamy with some tapioca pudding notes, light vanilla, and light rice. Body is light and bubbly but controlled. Finishes with more pudding notes, rice this time, soft french vanilla and some sugary flavors. Not bad but I couldn’t drink more than one of these.

This has a light aroma and a quick short lasting head. The taste is thin as expected for a lager type made with Sorghum, which is lightly sweet followed by an almost metallic hop taste. I recognize the use of rice in the type of sweetness. A good utility beer, but not otherwise impressive.

Light and cirtrousy, is the best way to discribe this one. I tend to uaally like a beer that has a little bit of that sour taste or a sweet wheat taste, but this was not doing it for me. Interesting becoues it is made of sorghum and rice, but the taste is just too watery and thin.

Thanks to Degarth for this. Pale gold pour with huge white head. Aroma of ricy, pale malty hops and slight plastic. Tastes pale malty, with slight hopcit and perfumy ricy spiciness. Watery palate that didn’t go well with my gluten craving beer gut and Herculian constitution and big-beer craving acumen.

I have to commend Lakefront for brewing a glutin free beer for Celiacs. I don’t know what life would be like living on a glutin free diet, and not being able to drink beer. New Grist gives Celiacs a chance to enjoy beer again, and I for one applaud that fact. Brewed with sorghum, and rice, New Grist, is a light, slightly sweet beer, that isn’t going to bowl beer geeks over. It was brewed as a glutin free beer, for those who can’t drink beer made from malt. New Girst pours to a very pale golden color, with a short,white head that fades, and a good carbonation. The nose on this beer is lightly grainy, and a touch of sourness. The plate is lean, with dry and crisp, grainy(must be the sorghum) flavor, and a touch of tart sourness. This beer finishes with more light, dry, grainy flavor, then ends with a slightly sweet flavor that linger. I don’t think I will be drinking New Grist every day, but I enjoyed this one much better than many malt beers I have had. It is what it is, a glutin free beer. In that sense, I find this beer to be a good one.
