2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from the Co-op in Sacramento, CA. It pours a light yellow color with almost no head. It has a light fruity smell with a hint of corn. Tastes sweet and it is slightly over carbonated. One of the better gluten free beers I’ve had.

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.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. A good gluten free option, but not suggested if ur not celiac. Not much of an aroma, head or flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear light straw color with a billowy white foamy head with tons of bubbles popping within. The head fades rather quickly leaving just a tiny bit of bubbly lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell- The aroma of the brew is heaviest of a slightly sour lemon aroma mixed with some green apple and a little bit of a more grape like aroma. Along with these are some light cracker smells and a little bit of grass.
Taste – The taste starts with a sweeter rice and somewhat grape juice like sweetness. As the taste advances more sourness of a lemon and sour green apple flavor comes to the tongue. A little bit of a cracker flavor that is present at the start as well fades more and more as the taste moves onto the end with it being replaced by a bit of biscuit. With a little bit of a grassy and hay flavor that comes to the tongue at the end, one is left with a somewhat fruity sweet and somewhat unbalanced sour and odd malt flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the flavors and the style of the brew the two were quite appropriate and made for a more easier drinking feel overall.
Overall – Ah, nothing too spectacular here. Not offensive, but certainly not a great go to. Ok overall and a decent non-gluten brew.
