Pours clean pale amber with one finger off white head. Nose is weird, lightly citric and then just rotten watermelon. Tastes like rotten watermelon. Awful. Aquilo (659) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Pours a dark copper brown with a very small head. If I’m being nice, I would say that the aroma is replete with citrus, caramel, and spice. Honestly thought, my first thought was that it smells like a cleaning product. Pine Sol, perhaps. The flavor is much harder to be nice about. It tastes like a urinal cake, and it leaves a cloying sweetness lingering in your mouth. This is a definite drain pour. I can’t bring myself to take more than one sip.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2013 OK, I just picked up a bunch of "ticks" and I figured I’d get this one out of the way first. A powdery, syrup-sweet aroma with some off chemical notes, along with choconilla and a reasonable whack of hops. Clear red beer with a small head. Pedestrian label. One appearance ding for the shameless Eco-Green marketing appeal. Chemical tasting. Notes of cane syrup, astringent, moderately hoppy, lightly sweet. Medium to slightly light body. Woody, peppery aftertaste. Huffs the weezer. drowland (9186) - Georgia, USA - NOV 13, 2011
11/13/11. 12oz bottle. Clear dark amber pour with a small, weird, clumpy khaki head that fades except for the clumps. Weird tart, burnt aroma of sourdough bread, cat pee, plastic, and who knows what else. Sweet, tart, doughy, bitter, grassy disgustingness... I can’t even find the words for this train wreck. Horrid.

Aroma: spicy/earth/citrus hops, caramel, toasty, fruity
Taste: earthy/citrus hops, caramel, toast, spice
Interesting. One of the best gluten free beers that I have had.
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Clear light amber pour with a minimal white head. Aroma is...I guess caramel malt, but there’s something kind of medicine-y going on here too. Light palate. Taste is an off-putting artificial caramel malt/citrus hop thing. Just not a fan. I’m going to share this one with my sink, and I’m feeling very generous. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2011
[Bottle] Pours a light shade of amber without much head to it. Herbal aroma is faint and includes oxidation hints as well. Taste is of mild hops, rice, light citrus, green apple and astringent grain. Light in body. Not much is happening here. AmEricanbrew (7080) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Clear amber color/ ivory head. Caramel extract, nutty, spicy, fuel alcohol aromas. medium bodied. Dry caramel, grainy flavors with fuel alcohol, other organic solvents--yikes RobertDale (6988) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Sample at KC Beerfest 10-22. Comes a clear amber with a small biege head. Aroma of citrus, florals and caramel. Taste is grain, malt, caramel and some hops. Interesting. PorterPounder (8364) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Superior, CO - Superior Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Pours a light copper with a sticky off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is very earthy, yet chemically, hints of day after a beer party. Flavor has a slight citrus bent to it with some sour off-putting apple notes. Some spiciness redeems it somewhat. Mouthfeel is harsh and leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Glad I can process glutens!
