12 oz bottle from New Seasons - Pale yellow with minimum head. Looks like a Miller Lite. Not too much to the aroma. Tastes much fuller than it looks. Nice hop flavor on top of pale lager flavor. Pretty good.

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.

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. Thereís 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 thereís some controversy about how gluten-free this actually is, but Iím hoping that it is and that he can drink this and enjoy real beer again.

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.

355ml bottle pours a yellowish straw color with a small white head that leaves a little lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains with some pale malts. Taste is a light grassy bitterness with a light malty sweetness. Light body and carbonation. Best Gluten Free beer, ícause as I was drinking it, I had no idea that it was a GF brew.

Poured from a 12ounce bottle. Has a lager slinky quality. Some fruitiness, sweet grain, slight sulfur. Not bad.

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.

Bottle. Bright gold with a slight haze. There is a thin bright white head. A doughy nose with hints of peanuts. There is a slight musky note. This tastes like bread crust with some notes of peanuts. There is also some earthy goodness. Decent.

slightly hazy golden yellow. Light aroma of wet yeast. Light bodied palate is crisp and easy-drinking with bread and lemon flavors.
