COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Redbridge is a hearty, full-bodied lager brewed using imported Hallertau and domestic Cascade hops. It is brewed with sorghum and has a well-balanced, moderately hopped taste.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2012 This beer starts at a disadvantage by being gluten-safe. That being said, the taste is a sweet grainy malt with some tart apple. Overall not bad considering my expectations.

Tasted on tap at Grantís Farm, St Louis, Missouri, USA. I wanted to learn what on earth a gluten free beer might taste like, since we all know beer is essentially fermented malted barley and/or wheat (which are packed with gluten.) Answer: in this case, not downright awful, but a pretty flat, mass-produced fizzy beer-like beverage. But then, isnít that the case with most AB products? It seemed to me they use more quality German and American hops to cover up the lack of malt-sweetness, which possibly makes Redbridge a bit better than their flagship light lagers. Bizarre.

Not bad. Light. Has a weird tang to it. Not unpleasant just different. Better than the alternatives offered at the time.

DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2011
The best part about this beer: It had no flavor. Because I canít imagine a gluten free beer from AB-InBev would be tolerable.

Apples and a sugary nose. Palate is also a bit sweet, a bit light on the hops. Bland, but this is by far the best gluten-free Iíve had. My wife was listening to a comic do a routine on gluten free. Something like íI donít know what gluten is but I suspect it is delicious.í

onceblind (3675) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Clear light gold, with a small fizzy head. Smells like smoky corn, slightly better than typical macro lager. Taste is wheaty, slightly woody, but otherwise very bland and corny sweet. Better than Bud or corona, but still a waste of time.

Bottle. Weak aroma. Taste is pretty watery and carbonated. Barely any flavor to it if ya ask me. Wonít drink again. 4.8% alcohol.

translucent copper with a thin ring of white bubbles, thin body with high carbonation.

aroma: sweet cascade hops.

taste: a bright honey-ish character at first, which gets fruitier as i go. also has a good amount of citrusy hops, and some not unpleasant sourness. there are also hints of alcohol esters, but iím not sure if itís from the sorghum or the likely high gravity brewing process.

really not as bad as i expected, though it does get slightly worse as i keep drinking it. has a certain macro-brew quality to it, and i think that bothers me more than the sorghum.

Slightly funky and grainy aroma. The flavor is sweet/sour with grainy sweetness and slightly funky. Not really as bad as I was thinking it was going to be, Iím guessing the sorghum gave it an odd flavor, otherwise it would have been a rather light, kinda flavorless lager that didnít have much character.

Redbridge has a thin, off-white head and a clear, amber-gold appearance, with lots of streaming bubbles and no lacing. The aroma is grassy and sweet. Taste is an odd combination of molasses, sweetness, grass, very slight hops, other neutral grains, and things I canít even describe. This is a weird one. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Redbridge finishes crisp and clean. Overall, I might have to get used to this one, not that Iíd ever have it again, but I rate it average. I guess itís okay for someone who canít have gluten. RJT
