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.

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.

Pours flat with no head. No metallic lager taste! Almost a sweet aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

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.

Has a weak but slightly hoppy aroma. This beer looks good, probably influenced by the naturally rich color of sorghum. The flavor is better than some malt or wheat beers. It is, as expected a little sweet, but has decent hops. A bit too sticky on the finish and cloying in the mouth. This may be the only option gluten intolerant people have in some areas. Not bad for that purpose.

Better than I expected. Doesn’t have much of an aroma. Has a smooth easy taste. Actually taste like beer (I was nervous it wouldn’t). I would definately buy this again.

Bottled. Appearance is golden caramely. Aroma is apples and a maltiness. Flavor is somewhat if maple syrupy. Its not bad. Its not great but it ain’t bad.

I rather like the smell - berries and honey. Looks about right. Tastes rice-y and brittle. kinda sharp in a good way though. too much fizz?
