12 oz. Pours a mostly clear copper with a head that fizzles out quickly. Aroma is apple cider and orange-tinged molasses with a touch of paint thinner. Taste is the same with more paint thinner. Light-medium body is balanced and has what seems to be an alcohol burn.

Cybercat (6340) - Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours a clear copper with a modest and effervescent head. Aroma is not strong; has herbal, hoppy and floral hints. Flavor has yeasty and bready notes, a fruity hint not great but palatable. Texture has average viscosity and not much fizz. One of these days, somebody is going to figure out how to brew a decent gluten-free beer.

Gold yellow color soapy white head. Nose has floral notes and candy. Body is light, flavors are sickly sweet, metallic, fruit. Just doesn’t do it for me.

Deep copper, clear, thin off white head. Aroma of spicy and piney hops, an odd herbal note that I can’t quite place. Flavor: caramel, a little toast, that same herbal note (probably from the sorghum and rice--I don’t taste a lot of gluten free beers), definitely get a hint of the molasses, light citrusy hops.

12ounce bottle, single in Austin from Whip-In .. . deep gold .. low foam .. . cheap cheese and grain .. . light .. . troubled beer .. . . Please don’t mention the bat infestation in the bathroom -- it alarms the girls.

Ibrew2or3 (8913) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2013
12oz bottle pours with a clear copper body and thick gold edges and supports an off white head. The aroma offers up red apples, earthy gravel, sugar coated cherry skins, cherry nuanced hazelnut notes and boozy figs...what the... Odd funky just weird smell, and not in a particularly good way. The taste, oh boy here we go, is sadly similar with red apples, ripe cherries, some cherry skins and then odd earthy gravel mixed with sweet hazelnuts. None of this is going well together as every note is heading into a different direction. Wow, strange and its bold notes that pop up here and there are just making it worse. Easily will never touch this again.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Appearance: Copper and toffee hues under under an off-white head that fades into a thin collar with a broken layer of film in the middle.
Nose: For the first few minutes I am literally not able to get anything aroma wise. Eventually I am able to scrounge up some faint notes of white bread crust and stale crackers in the back. Whiff of diacetyl in the back.
Palate: Hard apple skins along the sides. Fizzy salty mineral finish. Sides of the cheeks tingle as the beer passes by without leaving anything for me to taste. Maybe just maybe a bit more flavor than the nose with some faint white breads and white crackers. Ghostly essence of butter.
Final Thoughts: Another blah beer from New Planet Beer Company. Just because someone is gluten-intolerant doesn’t mean they should have to drink a sub-par faux beer. Keep looking.

kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Pours a perfect pint size. Cheers pintsize! Brillant, translucent copper. Healthy, lacy, off-white head that lasts. Aroma of very old books and wood. Flavor is old wood oulo but accentuated with metallic notes added. Ummm nyiittt.

Dogbrick (14316) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Sample at the "Far Out! Space-themed beer tasting" on 10/01/2013. Pours a brownish-amber color with a thin off-white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of grain and fruit. Light-bodied with flavors of charred bread, latex and minty hops. The finish is sorgum and fruit. Not good.

DialSquare (5187) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2013
12oz bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Orange-gold pour, minimal head. Aroma is light funk, alcohol, grain, medicinal. Cereal, metallic, grain, bandaid, burnt, bitter, yeast, dry. A strange bad beer. Not a drain pour, but close.
