1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep copper pour with some hop and caramel malt aromas, plus some rye hints. The palate is rather light in heft, and I got flavor notes of ryeish malt, some hops, and slight honey. This one isnít putrid, but I wouldnít drink it again. Give me gluten or give me death.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Straight from 12 oz bottle. The aroma raw cane sugar hint of cider mixed with a watered down oísake. I canít pick up any hops. The appearance is clean amber with a small white head. The taste is like aroma but no candy sugar. The palate is clean cut with an aftertaste of almonds. This is the first time I tried a gluten free beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hmm.. a friend told me this beer was "earthy" - I donít get that impression at all. Pours a thin, watery bronze color with very little head. Aroma is not horrible, but not great - pungent, but not in the most appealing way. My first impression of the flavor is metal, but it later takes on a decent hop character with slight maltiness, but unfortunately is not balanced or very pleasing. I was intrigued by the thought of a sorghum beer, and I donít dislike this beer, but I donít think I like it too much either. Itís just OK.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Smeels like slightly sour metallic tap water. Not an appearling aroma at all. Body was thin and highly carbonated but had a nice sharp hop finish. Not sure what sorghum tastes like, but there is a very light malt character with a slight sweetness. Really not bad at all, except for the unappealng aroma.

Bottle poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of carmel and fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of light bread and a hint of carmel with a crisp clean finish. This was a VERY watery tasting beer!

Rating #300. I did have another beer saved for this one, but WTF, itís only ratings, right? Bottle from Total Wine. This is another surprise, a marginally decent beer from A-B. Nice taste, color and aroma, did they hire someone new to work there? They can f@ck up a lot of beers, but they did pretty good with this one.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a three finger white head that vanishes leaving no lace. Crystal clear amber color. Strong carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy nose. Flavor has a hop sharpness, sweetness in background. Drying soapy aftertaste. Glad I bought only one bottle. $1.50 for a 12oz bottle from Capitol Convenience Concord, NH.
