1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
This is a lager so maybe I am being too unkind, but lots of cereal and bread. Not much else going on. Pretty boring. I didnt get much hops, sorry. I would have liked to have tried a Bud after this - I am sure this would be better because it had a bit more body, but otherwise, not much going for it.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a pint glass. Clear, golden color with two fingers of head.
Faint smell of dry grain.
Mild bitter taste, slightly metallic, watery overall.
Crisp and light body, low to moderate carbonation.
For a light, gluten-free lager I applaud the result. By all appearances it is a superior product to most other light lagers, but it still doesn’t make me want another one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not as good as the Omission pale ale, but then, why would you pick a plain lager over an APA in any event? Yellow, clear, light flavor. For what it does, it’s an accomplishment--drinkable gluten free beer. Not offensive. (bottle at the Ale Jail backyard beer festival, 2012)

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle; clear dull gold with a medium white head. Aroma of grain and corn. Flavor was crisp and mild. Not much sweetness or normal adjunct type flavor from a premium lager. Wouldn’t really know its gluten free. A mindless, but ok beer

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent floral hop aroma coming off a clear pale yellow body with a soapy white head. The flavor is very light in the style of a light lager (Tsingtao came to mind), but fresher and crisper than most. There’s a very light sweetness and maltiness, and some floral hop bitterness, but all is light here. The absolute most impressive thing about this beer is that it tastes like real beer, not like the usual sorghum-based gluten-free stuff. My brother has Celiac disease and he says there’s some controversy about how gluten-free this actually is, but I’m hoping that it is and that he can drink this and enjoy real beer again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle from the 3300 S State Store. Pours a somewhat cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. A light nose of floral hops and biscuit. Pretty decent, clean, light fruit, big sweet grains. Totally different than other gluten free beers. Quite good in that sense.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer is a crystal clear pale yellow color with a medium fizzy white head that burns away steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of mildly bitter floral hops, biscuit malt and grass. The finish is short and lightly hoppy. Run of the mill overall.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
The beer is a clear golden color with a white head. Some citrus peel notes and a touch of floral hops. A mild breadiness with a bit of cracker aroma. Maybe a bit of grass on the back end. The flavor is somewhat bland and has a touch of paper to it. Some light grain sweetness. There is a subtle but noticeable hop presence, mostly floral in nature but hints of grass and citrus peel are also there.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate floral, grain and fruit aroma. Light to medium balanced sweet flavor with a light to medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Short to medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Soft beer that was worth having once.
