2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden color with a fluffy off-white head. This one really smells like rye bread. There is even some caraway seed and applesauce for the Friday night fish fry. Alluring no, but nothing to make ne want to take the first sip. A dry fruit juice start. Light apples and raisins with just a hint of dry floral hops. As much as I can sympathize with people that can not have barley or wheat, I really hope I never need to depart this far from a beer to enjoy one.

This isnít saying much, but this is the best AB beer that I have ever tried. Definitely tasted like beer. Had this interesting non-hop aromatic thing going on. I am shocked that AB has produced this beer. Can we expect "real beer" from them in the future?

Pale Amber color with White Ring. No Aroma. Pretty Even Keeled Beer. Light Malt and Dry Aftertaste. Some Malt Notes..Sorghum Comes Out...Bit Bitter.....If Sorghum Is All You Can Handle, You Could Do Worse Then This.

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.
