Golden-straw body with abundant carbonation and a sudsy white head. Aroma has a lightly spiced cinnamon and cereal character, plus apple notes. Flavor is papery with light spice and some cider qualities. Mostly dry and moderately bitter. Spritzy, over-carbonated mouthfeel. I was curious to try a gluten-free beer. I feel duped having purchased an A-B product.

Ah, this is a lame attempt here. Faint aroma, pale(?) color, faint lacking taste. Nothing special here.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2007 Well, let’s see. Um, its, ah gosh I dunno, See the thing is, this is so boring its hard to concentrate on rating it. Its barely there. Some aroma, but really faint. Same with the flavor. I use the term loosely, because while it registers in my mouth, it was difficult to pull any specifics out.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Pulled this from the bottom of the 99¢ bin at the supermarket. Another AB stealth beer. 12 oz bottle. Clear light amber with a white head. Toasty malt and light grapefruit nose, some light floral notes. As promising as the nose was, the flavor disappoints. I really don’t know what sorghum is, but if that is what I’m tasting then I don’t like it. Some decent citrus hop bite. Better than expected, but that’s not saying much.

Bottle from Hy-Vee poured into mug - Pours amber with a small white head; A pale that actually looks drinkable!?! Pale malt and a grainy vanilla note to the nose; It doesn’t smell like crap either? Man, Must be having a good day at the brewery. Wait.....wait....noooooooo! Spices and grassy (I guess) hops on a very herbal and bitter initial taste; And to sink the rating further? More really bitter grassy hops on the aftertaste; A medium body that redeemed some of the score; WAY too lively carbonation; Oh Redbridge, you were so close to pale lager greatness...

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2007 The aroma is light and mildly sweet with a faint perfumed soap aroma. Those good soaps that are just for show mind you, not the ones you wash your butt with. It actually smells of in a non-beer kind of way. The bosy is a light amber/copper color with a diminishing white head that starts a thumb thick, fades, but then holds. As pale lagers go it looks pretty inviting. <P> That perfumey sweetness is there int he fore. It tastes a little like patchouli and potpurri mix. Yes, I have tasted both. It finishes with a sort of apple and flower finish. Has a moderately biting carbonation and detactable hops. This is not a bad beer at all. I actually think this puppy would sell well if marketed as a ladies (or guys) who hate beer. That being said....it’s good for what it is. My raped tastebuds are screaming for more.

Ernest (7315) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A-B clearly deserves props for this one out of all their pseudo-micro attempts, at the very least for being much more enjoyable than microbrewed sorghum beers like Lakefront New Grist and Bard’s Tale Dragon’s Gold (both of which are pretty much undrinkable). Surprisingly hoppy and balanced, and nothing particularly foul about it.

A clear copper color with a white soapy head. A nice malty aroma with some cherries and caramel present. The flavor is very crisp with a sweet cherry and lemon drop candy flavor. It was much better than I expected from AB.

Unlike any beer I have had before - not radically different, but distinctive since it is brewed using sorghum. The flavor has fruity undertones and a nice jazzy feel, no bitterness.
