1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours a golden orange color with an off white head that was almost dead before I finished pouring it.The aroma was of a grainy sent with a generic tone to it.The flavor was of a flat sour taste.The body was thin with a funky aftertaste.Just not worth the $1.29 that I paid for it.

Pours flat with no head. No metallic lager taste! Almost a sweet aftertaste.

Cardboard aroma froma a golden body with a nice white head. Very thin boring flavor of soft bread adn nothign more. Boring, lifless bland beer, typical adjuncted up crap and probably the best beer AB has ever made.

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...

I got this one because I had a friend ocming over who could not tolerate wheat. I used it inthe cooking and also had a bottle. Not one Ill get again I don’t think. Light in flavor, easy on the palate, like water, you know. Not much to it. Nice try. I feel bad for those who can’t have the wheat.

Just a touch on the syrupy side, with the hops becoming more evident as it warms.

One finger head, white, mostly diminishing, clear light brown, grassy aroma, watery, weird aftertaste can't put my finger on.

I really appreciate what they’re trying to do with this beer; unfortunately, the constraints put on execution show. Pours somewhere between macro beige-gold and macro amber (dull colors, rather bubbly). Some head that disappears rather quickly. Aroma is faint -- a little bit of something trying to come across as tart red fruit and something I imagine is the sorghum (sort of corn smelling, not sure I have the vocabulary to describe it). There’s a slight nutty, almost faux-buttery taste to it; the hint of tart red fruit comes through, too. Too much carbonation and I can’t really catch the hops. Again, not horrible if you can’t drink "regular" beer, and nothing I’d outright refuse, but there’s lot of room for improvement.
