Considering the restrictions they have placed on themselves this is really well done. Takes some getting used to but it has a nice little burst of sparkle to it. I think most people might not know it was sorghum.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Brewers Rendezvous. Tasting of 7/10/10. Pours a thin head, over a clear yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is light cereal, bit of floral honey....taste is light sweet malt, with a bit of cereal......mouth feel is light, carbonation medium. Although rather light in all characteristics, the is about the best gluten free beer I have tasted. BJCP 6/2/10/4/5

Vinous and sweet honey nose. Light gold color, no head. Slight candy sweetness, orange pith bitterness. Medium carbonation, this body, wine cooler cidery finish. Not having much experience with gluten free beers I have no comparison, more alcopop than beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I picked up a six-pack to take to a 4th of July BBQ, as my wife is intolerant to gluten. From a technical standpoint this ale very well made. In the glass it was crystal clear, with no sediment in the bottle and there were no noticable off aromas or flavors. Gold, pale amber in color, there was a light aroma of hops and malt. Light in body with a slightly sweet flavor but, there was enough flavor from the hops and orange peel to balance the sweetness from the corn and sorghum. Overall not a great beer but well made and very drinkable, definately ine that I would buy again as session beer to accompany a BBQ or pizza on a hot day.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing.
Body is light to medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), lightly hoppy (flowers).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation.
Not much aroma and whatís there is akin to soggy Corn Chex with some light floral hops. Drinkable, but not enough to balance the sweetness. They donít appear to be trying too hard to make this interesting.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Piss gold with a light haze. Slightly sour-ciderish. Not horrible but not my thing. Uses sorghum for fermentable sugar to be gluten free.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle. filtered. very light yellow tinted body, small white head, quick to grow, quick to die... like soda. nose is strange mix of coriander or anise with honey-sweetened corn/bread (i guess thatís how the sorghum and corn show up). thin body, fizzy and weak carbonation, messy texture. some sort of sugared coriander spice is present, and itís the lone positive quality of this beer. otherwise itís a semi-sour corn, honey and stale graham cracker flavored beer with very little body and a fizzy, light texture. surprised?

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light and sweet nose. Light on the tongue, with a lively carbonation. Subtle fruit flavors (Granny Smith apples and pear) in the aftertaste. Slight sourness gave it a pinch of depth. Pinch of sweetness, with hints of honey and white wine in the aftertaste. Not a bad gluten-free option for Celiacs and/or those counting calories.
