COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Redbridge is a hearty, full-bodied lager brewed using imported Hallertau and domestic Cascade hops. It is brewed with sorghum and has a well-balanced, moderately hopped taste.

The 12 ounce bottle poured a clear amber beverage with a fizzy white head that was completely diminishing and left almost no lacing on the glass. The aroma was surprising enough malty even though there is no malt involved in brewing this beer. There were also subtle fruity notes of grape and apple with grassy overtones. It had a medium body with lively carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor started off lightly bitter and stayed that way through the somewhat short finish. Not much here but for those individuals that are allergic to gluten this is not such a bad alternative.

12oz bottle-Body of a light amber with a decent white head. Aroma of malts and hops.Taste of hops with a big dry finish. Not bad for AB I think is better than Lakefronts Sorghum brew.

I only paid $7.95 for a six-pack of this at my local North Coast Coop here in Eureka, CA. IF you need gluten-free beer this seems like a good price for something so specialized. It poured a clear amber with a nice white head that left almost no lacing. Nose of malts and hops. Mouthfeel is somewhat rich and fniish is dry. For an AB product this is actually pretty decent.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2007 Sampled @ the WXPN/World Cafe Live mini-brew fest. The local A-B rep had some trouble describing this beer except to tout it was "gluten free and had a big buzz on the internet". Rep said it retails for $28 USD a case in the Philadelphia area. Other than being the first sorghum based beer I ever sampled there is not much going on here. If Redbridge gives people an beer option who are allegic to gluten and usually donít enjoy beer than more power to A-B.

Probably the most expensive AB beer iíve ever bought. Pours a clear copper color with not much head. Malty aroma, with a hint of brown sugar and a touch of hops. Thick. Like Ritterkruez said, syrupy. Light hops, somewhat dry. Not too bad for AB.

Just a touch on the syrupy side, with the hops becoming more evident as it warms.

Pours a nice amber color with a small white head. Interesting aroma - mix of malty sweetness and hops. Flavor is more of the same, but good. I likes it!

My overall score may be somewhat high, but when you have celiacs disease and it can cost upwards of $40 to find a six pack of beer (including shipping), I will definitely rate this one higher. I found out I had celiacs in the summer of 2006 and along with that found I had no beer to drink. It may not be good to those of you who can drink regular beer, but to those that cannot find sorghum beer in their area other than this, itís more of a reflection of angelic voices. I donít know how many bottles I have drank in the last month, but while it lacks some of the better qualities of some craft beers, and it is sweet (being that sorghum comes from sugar cane) it is a highly tolerable beer and much better than some of the others I have tried. I see it more as a savior for those that have celiacs disease. After a few, it tends to grow on you.

Nice amber color,small white head that faded quickly leaving nothing behind.Funkadelic aroma,sorta maltyish,sweet,maybe some hops in there.The flavor is mildly malty in way,some hints of metallic in there as well and a slight sweet middle with a mildly bitter metallicish end.Not exactly a good brew but i guess for those folks who are hard up for a brew and canít handle the other grains,then i guess itís a winner then.For myself......itís doable but nothing fantastic.
