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.

I had a broken tooth once. It got infected and developed an abscess. It got bad enough that the abscess drained pus constantly. It was one of the worst things my mouth has ever tasted. THAT’S what this tastes like.

Transparent yellow gold with a quickly dissipating head. Notes of apple (unexpectedly), honey, and grain in the aroma. Thin, light bodied. Surprisingly pleasant pilsener taste with the addition of apple and honey which supercedes most macros. Wee bit of hop in the finish. Far superior to Bard’s.

Bottle from Whole Foods Tyson. Golden body. Nose of sweet, skunky. Taste also quite grassy and skunky. Some sweet flavors. Citrus burts. Okay.

onceblind (6380) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Clear light hay hue, like a cider I suppose, with a thin fading white head. Blonde german aroma with a hint of sweetness underneath and something very lightly floral. Crisp and dry flavor with some lemon zest and nearly classical pilsener tones, light german pilsner grain nuances, not a trace of hop save for the slight lemoniness, and a clean dry finish. Not shabby! Best gluten free beer I’ve had in some time. No off flavors or obvious gluten-free flags on the palate.

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.
