2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bright, clear, medium yellow with a stark white head that lasts. Once warmed up a bit, this actually has a decent aroma to it. Doughy, some light fruit coming through, and a nice amarillo nose. Light body, lively carb, and a surprisingly bitter finish. My only real complaint is that the hop bitterness amplifies inordinately across the palate and escalates to intense soapiness in the lingering finish. If not for the finish, this would easily score much higher for me.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
bottle LCBO: clear golden body under a white head. Sweetbread, hops, and citrus in the nose. Flavours of caramel and grassy hops are there, but come up inadequate without any malt to back it them up - typical of gluten free beverages. That said, the sorghum was surprisingly decent. Crispy finish. Not horrible.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Caramel/ heavy toffee flavor, unique for a gluten free beer. A big vienna lager flavour. English Style pale ale notes. No head overtop a straw body tinted with a subtle amber. Better than most gluten free beers I’ve had.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 500ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Clear golden coloured, minimal white head that went away fast, weak grainy nose. Sweetish malty, light grainy, slight cardboard and cereals with short finish. Some late bitterness shows up just for a second or two in the aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Modest off white loose head, clear honey golden body.
Sweet aroma with malts, toffee and honey.
Malty taste with some grassy hops, toffee notes, dusty grainy hops.
Slightly sticky, normal body, modest carbonation. Grainy finish with bitterish malts. Interesting variant. But I got no citrus.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle. Poured clear gold with almost no head. Aroma of lemon dish soap. Light body with a slick mouthfeel, finishes a bit metallic. Sweet pale malt, hay flavour with some nice spicy hops built in that make it NOT a horrible gluten free beer. I won’t be buying it again but it wasn’t a drain pour.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured into a pils glass.
3.25 A: This is carbonated like mad. First pour gave me over two hands of head. Several pours later I discovered a clear medium yellow color. Three plus fingers of foamy white head. Retention lasts seemingly forever as bubbly reinforcement from below keep it maintained. Lots of lacing.
1.75 S: Smells of perfumy doughy sweetness with notes of ginger ale. Strange and I don’t really care for it.
1.5 T: Sweet doughiness. No much in terms of hops. Perfumy ginger ale. Not much else to say - doughy overly sweetened ginger ale.
3.5 M: Medium body. I swirled this enough to get the carbonation down to an acceptable level. Moderately creamy. Not bad here.
1.25 D: All I need to say is that I wouldn’t drink beer if I had to drink sorghum beer. Stuff is horrible.

Bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Being a gluten-free beer I didn’t have high hopes for this but it was pleasantly surprising. Decent pilsner with decent hop flavours. Would have again.
