2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - Hoppy with some bread, grains and sweet malts. Dark clear amber with no head. Bitter right off the bat, a bit of fruit tartness and an alcohol burn that overwhelms and is out of balance. Almost closer to a strong ale than a pale ale. There is a cloying taste in the finish that builds as you drink and not too pleasant. Not great, but so far the more flavorful of the gluten free beers I have had.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker.pours a clear rust orange with a thin ring of off white head. Aroma of caramel and molasses with a good dose of floral hops. Taste is light bitter. Floral hops and wet cardboard. Medium bodied with a slick crisp texture. Lively carbonation and a long, lasting finish. Overall, not horrible. Dexent enough for a gluten free brew.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
"tastes like beer" Poured without much head which disappeared quickly. This gluten free brew has a pleasant citrusy flavor with pretty decent carbonation, which Iím finding is a problem with gluten free beers. Nothing special here, but this one could actually almost pass off as a non gluten free.

Pours a clear amber with an inch of white foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma is maybe honey and citrus. Taste is sweet with sorghum and honey and a bit of hoppiness.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clear copper with a tea type head. Nothing coming through in the scent really. Flavor is bland and lifeless. Does it taste like a pale ale? I guess, in some roundabout way, but this is the first gluten free beer Iíve tried and itís nothing to write home about.

Delightful! Beer made with brown rice, kind of like Sake (which is made from white rice). I taste a hint of the Sake flavor, but with hops and yeast, itís a real beer. Gluten-free, which is cool. a really delicious beer, more breweries should take notice of this fine Boulder, Colorado Brew Co.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a dark amber to copper color with a thin, soapy kakhi head. Aroma is full of sorghum, some planty, citrusy hops, red apple skin, earthy grain and some odd weedy (as in nuisance, thistle-like) floral notes. Sorghum and rice sugar in the flavor, husky grain, molasses, sweet red apple, and citrus and planty hops. Excessively light, fairly dry feel, moderate carbonation. While I canít say that I really enjoyed this beer that much, I can say that the many odd aroma and flavor elements seem to be light in intensity, unlike many other sorghum based beers. Which is saying a lot in the gluten-free segment.

Bottle at Churchkey in D.C. Shared by a gluten free buddy of mine.
The beer is crystal clear, appearing light orange in color. The head is small and fades within a few moments. Both the aroma and flavor offer sweet apple juice. Apples soaked in alcohol. Some characteristics resembling a hard cider. This was tolerable, but I wouldnít have it again. I wonít knock it too hard, because I have yet to have a palatable gluten free beer. Decent for what it is.
