1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Clear light amber pour with a minimal white head. Aroma is...I guess caramel malt, but thereís something kind of medicine-y going on here too. Light palate. Taste is an off-putting artificial caramel malt/citrus hop thing. Just not a fan. Iím going to share this one with my sink, and Iím feeling very generous.

[Bottle] Pours a light shade of amber without much head to it. Herbal aroma is faint and includes oxidation hints as well. Taste is of mild hops, rice, light citrus, green apple and astringent grain. Light in body. Not much is happening here.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Superior, CO - Superior Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Pours a light copper with a sticky off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is very earthy, yet chemically, hints of day after a beer party. Flavor has a slight citrus bent to it with some sour off-putting apple notes. Some spiciness redeems it somewhat. Mouthfeel is harsh and leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Glad I can process glutens!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet and spicy nose. Surprisingly ďmaltyĒ with sharp nips of toast, darkened caramel, nuts, ginger snap cookies and molasses. Hops are bitter with notes of grass, spices and grapefruit zest. The aftertaste is filled with elements of syrup, sorghum and a lingering bitterness. Iím not a big fan of gluten-free and/or sorghum beers, but this is one of the better ones out there.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma is like a vitamin store with hints of molasses and a fairly strong herbal hop. The appearance is light amber with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma with a strong vitamin quality. The palate is thin but smooth. Overall itís hard to like this beer there is nothing good about it except for those who canít have gluten. But itís hardly better than no beer at all.
