drowland (6841) - 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.

pours a bright yellow gold .. . medium foam .. . borax is a soap, borat is a movie .. . has a solid crispness .. . not even taking into account the gluten free aspect, this is a very nice lager
.. . . you know, i don’t take my cigar smoking career nearly as serious as i should.

Ernest (6728) - 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, it’s Widmer. Secondly, it’s 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. It’s toasty, it’s hoppy, it’s flaws are minor, and it’s...believe it or not...drinkable. In fact, if you didn’t tell me it was GF, I probably wouldn’t even know. No, it’s 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 wasn’t drinking wine instead). The Omission website says these brews may contain gluten, since they *are* brewed with barley and such. So...ummm....hmmm.

larsga (6684) - 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 didn’t leave much in this one, so must have omitted quite a lot. Boring (0.33l bottle, CC Mat, Lillehammer.)

Geokkjer (6582) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with an off-white head. Aroma of hay, malt, some fruitiness and herbs. FLavor is sweet and fruity with some hay, malt and some bitterness. Medium to thin body, average carbonation.

b3shine (6581) - Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent gold with thin white head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells doughy and a little skunky. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright for a gluten-free lager.

gunnar (6414) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle from Helgø Meny, Sandved. Pours clear straw coloured with a tiny white head. Aroma of sweet grainy malts. Taste is light sweet, very shy grassy hops, makes a short bitter finish.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2012
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!
