A little better than the lager, I guess. Some notion of malt whatever that is. Pours amber with ok head and lacing. On tap at DC Summerfest.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured clear, sunsetty orange with a short-lived white head.. just a dusting stuck around. The aroma picked up sweet oranges and floral notes over honey and light biscuity notes.. the hops stood out and were nice. The flavor found honey, sorghum, and a little rice at the core, with fresh grapefruit and light pine bitterness around.. nondescript residual bitterness stuck on the otherwise slick finish. Light-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. not the best flow to it.. aiight overall.

Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium copper with lazy, but long lasting bubbly white head. Aroma has a nice spruce bent to it with touches of spice. Flavor has an overall nutty profile to it with hints of bittersweet citrus notes. Some back end caramel notes. Mouthfeel has that pasty feel to it that is ubiquitous to gluten free beers. Much better than the lager.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium amber.
Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, cereal, caramel, malt syrup), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot, resin), with a light note of dried mango.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation.
How bizarre. From a brewery that can hardly make a good "normal" beer to save their lives comes two of the better GF beers on the market. But wait...are they really GF? Their website says these are made from typical brewing grains but the gluten is removed during the brewing process...but that they can’t verify they’re really GF..."product may contain gluten". All righty then. So that explains why these are so much better than true GF beers made from sorghum and so on. Sneaky fuckers.

@ South Denver Beer Fest 2013. Clear copper with a fizzy white head. Nose is kinda spicy with a strong presene of floral hops and a bit of resin. Flavor is too light, but has a nice crisp floral hop resin taste alongside a pale grain sweetness.
