3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Redhook Brewery in New Hampshire. Pours a pale yellow color with a thin white head. Grassy aroma. Lots of carbonation. This is a nice lager with a bit more upfront hops than a normal macro. This is very easy to drink with a low ABV of 4.6. Iím just learning know that this is gluten free. I would never have guessed that as most gluten free beers have a harsh and kind of nasty taste. Would have this again especially on a hot day.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz single from Roths Sunnyslope Market in Salem.
Actually quite nice looking for a lager golden yellow with a good sized bubbly white head.
Fine honeyish,grassy aromas. OK
Clean slightly grassy hop, semi sweet taste,perfectly reasonable.
Mouthfeel is strange it starts OK but trails off to a wateriness..with a strange bitterness.
Overall though an OK lager and a good gluten free.

Pours pale yellow into a shaker. Bright white head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sweet caramel and grass aromas. Soft and thin with bread and grass front to back. Stale lasting finish.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Super light yellow, fizzy. Virtually no aroma. Virtually no flavor either. But this at least is better than any other gluten free beer Iíve ever tried before ... itís not disgusting. Other gluten free beers tend to end up with some weird aftertaste. This doesnít have that, and might actually be an enjoyable alternative to anyone needing to avoid gluten. Itís inoffensive.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is citrus and a hint of lime. The flavor is citrus, lime, a grainy malt background almost similar in texture to oatmeal and a tart finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pale yellow, good head. Appears like most domestic pale lagers.. Nose is a bit skunky, lemon, earthy, and believe it or not a hint of coffee. Actually has some good flavors. Lemon, wheat, and a sweet honey-citrus on the end.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 11/8/12
Aroma: The nose has some grassy hops, some citrus/citrus rind, and a little bit of straw
Appearance: It pours a clear golden color with a small bright white head and some very light lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same medium sweet/some straw flavor, and a light grassy hop bitterness
Palate: The body is fairly light, it has more of a soda-like feel then a beer feel, with a mildly dry finish
I didnít realize this was a Gluten Free beer until just now. I guess I should have read the label a little better. Anyway, this one isnít terrible, and if I had to drink gluten free beer I guess this oneís not any worse then a bunch of the other oneís out there that I have tried, but thatís about all itís good for.
