Bottle:   Straw in color, rather clear, thin to moderate white head, sudsy, little lacing.   Macro beer aroma, corny, rice, the stuff I taste when I vomit out my nose.   Sweet grassy/grainy malt forward nose.   Very much a grassy/straw/hay like beer.   Its a clean beer alright, straw and hay/grass on the finish.   If I had a gluten issue, this would be a decent brew to drink, unoffensive, not too bold in any one direction.   However, if I had to drink this more than a few times I would be livid!

Ernest (6151) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cereal), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with light notes of DMS and soap. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. I really dreaded trying this because...well...for one, itís Widmer. Secondly, itís a gluten-free beer, and gluten-free beers almost always suck. Hard. But just as Redbridge is surprisingly one of the more passable GF examples (from an even worse brewery), this beer is better than the bulk of its brethren. Itís toasty, itís hoppy, itís flaws are minor, and itís...believe it or not...drinkable. In fact, if you didnít tell me it was GF, I probably wouldnít even know. No, itís not going to compete with good lagers out there...this is basically on the level of Full Sail Session Lager or something like that, but still...good grief, you can do a LOT, LOT worse in this field (Sprecher Shakparo, anyone???). If I had to go GF, I would have no problem having one of these once in awhile (when I wasnít drinking wine instead). The Omission website says these brews may contain gluten, since they *are* brewed with barley and such. So...ummm....hmmm.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2014
Small white head. Clear yellow body with light carbonation. Light fruity sugary aroma with floral notes. Dry floral resiny taste with fruity grainy notes. Thin-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry grainy mealy aftertaste with wooden notes. Well, they didnít leave much in this one, so must have omitted quite a lot. Boring (0.33l bottle, CC Mat, Lillehammer.)

lusikka (6027) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 19, 2014
330 ml bottle.
Pours a golden colour without a head. Aroma of metals, mild grainy notes and some pungent grassiness. Very mild flavour of grains, grassy bitterness, mild fruitiness, wet paper and strong lemon. Light bodied, soft carbonation and thin mouthfeel. A very simple lager which goes well with food.

DrSilverworm (6009) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2012
12oz botte, bottled May 10, 2012. Clear gold color, thin white head that fades to minimal. Couple dots of lace. Crisp, light carbonation. Dry texture. Pretty convincing, and decent lager. Light bread aroma, with some citrus lemon. Sort of a zesty-sweet taste. Definitely one of the better gluten-free beers Iíve tried.

blutt59 (5999) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle, clear gold with egg white foam, light musky hops aroma and flavors, some mild bitterness, malt liquor finish. Reminds me of a weak NB Shift

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2012
6/6/12. 12oz bottle shared by our rep. Clear golden pour with basically no head. Horrifying aroma of band aids and burnt tires... man. Equally terrible flavor with burnt tires, plastic, and a bit of hay. Terrible.

BVery (5969) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle. Bright yellow pour that is mostly clear. Small white head. Light floral and biscuit elements. Decent for a gluten free brew.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy with a light sweetness and a relatively clean finish. Nice enough.

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.
