Bottle from Ledgers. Pours clear copper with very little head. Aromas of citrus and yeast. Med body. Flavor is quite odd, suggesting metal, brown sugar and a little citrus. Maybe treacle. Would take getting used to.

brokensail (16342) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 28, 2011
A: The beer pours a transparent amber color with almost no head. S: Grass and citrus peel are pretty much the only evidence of hops in this beer. Very bland and watery, but there is a bit of rice and some wet cardboard/paper aroma, too. T: Quite watery with a bit of rice and a bad vegetarian hot dog flavor. A bit of cardboard and wet paper with some mild grass and citrus peel. A mild bitterness to it on the finish. M: Very light in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Nothing about this beer was enjoyable.

Beerdrinker79 (2156) - Idaho, USA - JUL 8, 2011
12 oz. bottle- Pours crystal clear reddish orange with a very small head that dissipates immediately, this is not looking good already. There is a confectionary aroma to it, caramel and sticky tape. The taste is sorghum, semi bitter, very dry, this is not good at all, there is an amber ale taste that tries to come out, but dirty dishwater flavors and a very unappealing aftertaste overpowers it. Drain pour, unfinishable, man I hope I never become allergic to wheat or barley.

scooterbub (1049) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAY 15, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark amber with a thin tan head that slowly fades. Taste is of malt, caramel, smoke, pine, and hops. Similar, but lighter aroma. Has a decent full body. Has a nice lingering bitterness that leaves me wanting more. A little lopsided, but easy to drink and rather enjoyable.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - APR 17, 2011
Aroma is almost orange soda. Citrusy hops with sugar from the rice. Pours an amber color. Bitterness fades quickly. As it warms up a little the bitterness takes charge and the grain fades

brinehart (213) - Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2011
Deep copper w/ off-white fleeting head. No lace. Primarily cidery nose. Some floral hops too which is nice, but also some sort of metallic off-aroma. Good bitterness from American hops and a decent balance between hop character and something that I will call "maltiness." Some nice nuttiness makes up for the lack of malt, but like with other gluten free beers, the absence of malt and cidery characters are hard to get past. This is the best gluten free beer Ive had, but still not a great beer.

gururyan (721) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 31, 2011
The color is beautiful. Aaaaaaaaaaand thats it for the compliments. This is just nasty, totally undrinkable. Its worse than unflavored cough syrup. I would drink a PBR before drinking this, which-if you know me-is pretty bad.
