Bottle. Ruby red pour with ring of white bubbles. Sweet and a little fruity. Odd cardboard malt flavor. Light carbonation. Not very enjoyable. Bill Becker (1808) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JUN 3, 2016
This pours a clear copper colour, a finger of foam and good lacing.
The smell is of apple sugar and a hint of the hops that they say on the label.
Tastes better than it smells to me. Sugary, yes, but it comes across to me as similar to some malt attributes that I have noticed in other non gluten free beers. Apple taste is there and I think it contributes rather than detracts from the overall taste. Very little hint of hops but at this point, it just doesn’t matter.
Decent mouthfeel for the lowish abv.
Interesting. I’m not sorry that I bought it but there’s little chance of a repurchase despite my not negative review. Niko100 (2995) - Chicago, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Nice amber copper color; Light slightly creamy body; Aroma of malt, floral, & some fruit; Flavor of sweet malt, caramel/honey, fruit, and wheat/grain; Finish is slightly tangy; Not bad for what it is. RobertDale (6856) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUL 30, 2013
500 ml. bottle. Pours a clear pale amber with a small biege head. Aroma of fruit, malt(?), and grain(?). Taste is sweet fruit, sugar, and florals. Might be a good gluten free. FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2013
Probably the best gluten free beer that I have tried - though that is faint praise. +++ Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a medium sized soapy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was grainy and dryish with a bit of toffee. The flavor was bitter and tart with vague citrus, a bit of perfume and light notes of toffee and nut. Medium length dryish citrus and toffee finish. Medium body. Ok.

Bottle. Medium amber with a flat short lived head. Aroma is caramel, cooked apples, and light corn candy. Caramel flavour, light kirsch, breakfast tea. Medium bitter finish. A bit odd, but not terrible. jkwood04 (5463) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 19, 2013
500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, light maltiness but nothing really of substance, and tin. Flavor the same. Average texture. A weird beer, but a nice hoppiness. Patrickctenchi (6732) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Pours clear, light copper with a quick, soapy, white head.
Aroma is nondescript hoppy, honey, sugars....
Taste is light, watery and sweet.....a hint of tea-like bitter.
Oddly fruited and artificial.
Almost like a canned ice-tea with some alcohol thrown in.(and precious little of that)
Very disappointing....as I’m a big fan of this brewer. jimhilt (2626) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Pours a one-finger cream head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Crystal clear copper color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Hints of sugary nose and flavor is sugary hops and a dry finish. Okay but needs some malt. Pricey at $8.99 for a 500ml bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

Pint bottle. This is clear and is tea colored with a bit of copper. A decent two finger head lasts a couple of minutes. This smells like grain and brewers malt. The flavor is also grain and what tastes like rye. There is some fruit that is kind of syrupy and some bitterness that tastes kind of artificial. It is a bit sugary and sorghum is tasted. Despite all of that this isn’t terrible and I give any beer with such a low ABV some lee way.
