2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet, candied, chemical aroma. Light bronze, clear, twistoff, fair label. Astringent, metallic, molasses notes, a little briny and black pepper, moderately hoppy. Interesting. Fiishes out with some astringency. Thanks to PorterPounder for saving me the trouble of buying the 6.

Light clear amber, fizzy head. Aroma of Bud. is this a Bud not made out of corn?? Very unique flavor. slight fruit, (maybe cherry candy) very crisp and light. If I had an allergy to gluten, this would be my beer of choice. But I donít, so itís not!!! A little too light on the palate.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden w/ a medium sized spritzy froth that dissappeared very quickly leavng a strand of brewers lace. Aromas of crispy malt. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers. Very favorfull, crisp, clean, refreshing. It has a semi fruity character. Finishes clean and crisp w/ a lingering bitter hop. Not bad. Overall: I am impressed with the outcome of this brew. I like this better than most Samuel Adams stuff, actually.

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.
