Bottle. Bright yellow pour that is mostly clear. Small white head. Light floral and biscuit elements. Decent for a gluten free brew.

Ughsmash (7223) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up lightly-toasty corn and pale malts with light, dank hop accents. The flavor found corn, honey, and odd grain (sorghum?) with sharp lemon zest and odd bitterness around.. finished lemony and quasi-refreshing. Light-bodied with an ok flow through the palate.

Hansen (7051) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2014
Light yellow coloured and clear. Has a white head, diminishing. Hoppy, fruity aroma, citrus, orange. Flavor starts sweet, faint bitterness. Creamy texture.

marcus (6969) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento, Pours clear golden with a thin off-white head and a light floral aroma. There is a slightly sour sorghum flavor with a dry finish.

lusikka (6663) - 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.

douglas88 (6586) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 8, 2012
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.

Radek Kliber (6572) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 30, 2014
Where and how: bottle 355ml
Aroma grainy, pale malts. Not too clean. Slightly soapy hints. Generic vibe.
Appearance :
Top: white top, fizzy top, sparse lace.
Base: pale straw.
Palate : tad thin body
Taste: sweet grainy malty lager. Grassy behind. Thinner yet with good approach.
Other notes blue collar lager

blipp (6495) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy with a light sweetness and a relatively clean finish. Nice enough.

drowland (6488) - 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.

Ernest (6484) - 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.
