1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
A: The beer pours a clear golden color with no head to speak of.
S: A mild pepper note as well as some "malt", rice, and cardboard. There’s definitely some apple and crappy tofu aroma. A little bit of soap and water in there, too.
T: Apples and water, soap, and more of the wonderful crappy tofu character. There’s plenty of wet cardboard with a mild sweetness and a general sense of blandness.
M: Light and watery with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Rather crappy; just like all the gluten free beers I’ve had.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Pours dark yellow with a small, fizzy white head, mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, cereal, meal), light hop (herbs), average yeast (dough, earth) with notes of apple, sorghum, nutmeg, and pepper. Light bodied, slick texture, average carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. Man am I glad I do not need a gluten free diet.

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 that’s how the sorghum and corn show up). thin body, fizzy and weak carbonation, messy texture. some sort of sugared coriander spice is present, and it’s the lone positive quality of this beer. otherwise it’s a semi-sour corn, honey and stale graham cracker flavored beer with very little body and a fizzy, light texture. surprised?

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from Blue Dog Lansdale. Pours very pale gold with minimal white head. Nose is grainy malt, mild hops, bready. Tastes pretty bad, some grainy notes, mild hops, corn, and not much else. This blonde is more lacking in substance and devoid of character than my last mistress.
