Bif (1711) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle- Pours a golden color with a fair head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of malt, fresh grain and bit of fruit in the background. Mild flavor of malt sweetness grain and bit of fruit. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Medium body, smooth but seems to be lacking something. Beer is not that bad for what it is.

Pale and light bodied. A refreshing summer ale with a nice aroma and starting taste but lacks the finish to follow through. Good on those hot summer days

Capa (2316) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2014
A bit of citrus, oddly sweet aroma. Hollow, hoppy flavor. Citrus with noticeable odd sweetness, much like the aroma. Medium bodied. Pretty solid GF brew, actually. Has that goofy GF flavor but much more drinkable than many others. Bonus points for that.

Light head on pour. Little gas. No head. Little taste. Is wet. That's it. Not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KeefOz (1154) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2013
Poured a clear pale gold colour with a white bubble ring for a head. Poor lacing. Very low carbonation with only a few minute bubbles. Aroma of musty grain and a trace of malt. Taste slightly sweet (sweeter than the Light Lager) followed by low bitterness. Light body bordering on watery. Long but mild bitterness on the finish. Poor (but better than nothing for those who need gluten free).

Put pale yellow with very low Varna. Oil initially with some malt undertones but not a very good finish

ALLOVATE (2654) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2012
It is what it is and credit to them for using gluten free grains - though I still remain sceptic of the amount of gluten retained in a fully fermented beer. None the less; produces a bright, light amber with light carbonation and little head retention. Tangy ripe grapefruit, honeydew and cantaloupe on the nose atop a little pine, burnt toast and sorghum - hops are in check! Thin and fizzy with a pleasing bitter orange back end and citric piney finish. Sorghum is dominant in the foregound, a light toasty edge breaks it up. Simple, straightline ale with a job to do. Refreshing, but... (33cL BB 06/07/13, Dan Murphy痴 Currambine)

330ml bottle. tropical fruit flavours with a light sweetness. An ok beer, but serves a good purpose.

davidm (1979) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Bottle 330ml from Parkhill cellars. Good malty ale, with decent hop support. Aromas of caramel, nuts, and flowers. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and average length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Dark yellow, with a frothy head.
