2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a crisp, thin, yet dense amber. Aroma is sweet cherry, like a Ludenís cough drop. Bitter fruity malt with leaves round out the flavors. Finishes with a sour film that only sours more as it warms. Average mouthfeel. No more sorghum beer, please.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour is a dark yellow with a white head. Aroma is very sweet with some hops showing up. Flavor kinda weak with some bitterness and a easy going sweetness. Canít really put this one over the top but as far as sourgum beers goes i would say this is one of the better ones i have had.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Pours a light golden color with a thick white head and decent lacing. Nose of sharp acidic hops and a husky grain, kinda like millet smells, but i guess itís just the sorghum. The flavor is a bit tinny and thin with a lot of proteins and tart notes on the palate. Finishes husky, not horrible for something with no malt in it. My first sorghum beer, low expectations, so iím impressed.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: The aroma is light with hints of apple, citrus, and a touch of hops. It pours a transparent golden-amber with a small white head that diminishes quickly. The flavor starts with light apple that lingers throughout and finishes with light grassy hops with a hint of roastiness and sourness. It resemble an amber ale more than a pale lager to me.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Gluten Free #3: Amber bodied with a head that rapidly reduces to a film, this has an aroma of straw, overly ripe apples, and candy. Itís watery and tastes of grapefruit rind and soap. The finish has a dried grass bitterness. Another delight from A-B!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The body is medium gold with a quickly dissapating slightly off white head. The aroma is slightly soapy with hints of pears and ginger. The taste has notes of watered down grapefruit and some toasted almonds. The finish is sweet. This is better than I expected. Probably as good of a gluten free beer as I have tried.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours an amber clear body. Aroma is candy sugar and light hops. Flavour is quite sweet with not enough hop presence for balance. No gluten which is interesting and is great for anyone on a gluten free diet. Otherwise its not really any better than other AB beers.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is cane sugar sweet and lightly fruity (more like a cider mixed with a watered down sake than a beer) but there is a hint of hops in there. Itís seem so hard to find the hops that I assume itís the same ones they use for Bud. The appearance is amber with a small but persistent head. The flavor is like the aroma with only the smallest amount of bitterness. The palate is smooth from the generous amount of carbonation. The aftertaste is slightly medicinal. For a beer made without Barley or Wheat I am impressed. While falling well short of being a "real" beer in most respects, this is probably the best gluten free beer on the market.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours bright amber with a lacy white head. Everything about the character of this beer is so neutral that it makes for the most inoffensive beer Iíve ever tried. Creamy medium mouthfeel, barely noticeable hops, just a trace of caramel and vanilla in the taste. The finish is close to non-existent, but the overall impression is not too bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Odd stuff turning up on the shelves of the local beer shop. I passed it up at first but then couldnít resist trying a single. Light hop aroma. Golden beer with a fizzy white head that drops to a ring. Not as disgusting as I expected for a beer made with no barley or wheat. And from AB?? Its better than any of their macrobrews. A bit spicy from the Hallertau and Cascade hops, and you donít really notice the sorghum, but you do notice a different flavor and mouthfeel to it. Still, itís a drinkable brew and even moderately enjoyable.
