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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Well its the best of 2 sorghum beers Iíve tried (it doesnít say "gluten-free" but Iíll assume it is). Drinks like an ordinary american dark lager (its not a pale lager despite the classification). Pours a orangey-amber color with a nice full creamy head. Features a modest hop aroma, a touch spicy, maybe a touch of citrus. Flavor is leaning towards a caramelized flavor, with a medium easy finish. Lightish body but not watery. A fair beer and if you need gluten-free, this one isnít a bad way to deal with it.

Does the name have any meaning? Pale, clear, little head. Slightly interesting fruity aroma. Quite watery and a bit tart. Noticable cascade hop flavor. Sour and bitter finish. Really bad.

PorterPounder (5360) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Tallahassee, Fl. - Killearn Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Medium golden pour with an amber tint to it - initial white head fades quickly. Not much of an aroma, whatís there is industrial type watery aroma. Slightly metallic flavor with hints of pepper and ripened vegetables. Mouthfeel is slightly stinging. Advise drinking only under Drís orders. Curious that AB chose to put their name on this one but not the Wild Hop and Stone Mill.

12oz bottle pours dark amber with a fair white head that stays briefely but leaves some lace. Aroma of light citrus over cardboard. Flavor is pretty hoppy with some nice citrus notes as well as some grass. Not much there on the malt side. Seems grainy to me. Palate is pretty crisp and clean. Actually not nearly as bad as i thought it would be.
