Pours a clear copper with a tea type head. Nothing coming through in the scent really. Flavor is bland and lifeless. Does it taste like a pale ale? I guess, in some roundabout way, but this is the first gluten free beer I’ve tried and it’s nothing to write home about. bpreo (3043) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Delightful! Beer made with brown rice, kind of like Sake (which is made from white rice). I taste a hint of the Sake flavor, but with hops and yeast, it’s a real beer. Gluten-free, which is cool. a really delicious beer, more breweries should take notice of this fine Boulder, Colorado Brew Co.

Pours deep coper with a frothy tan head.
Earthy scent, sorghum,vegetable.
Taste is cardboard, earthy hops....
with the exception of it’s colour, altogether unpleasant. fidelis83 (2551) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Pours a dark amber to copper color with a thin, soapy kakhi head. Aroma is full of sorghum, some planty, citrusy hops, red apple skin, earthy grain and some odd weedy (as in nuisance, thistle-like) floral notes. Sorghum and rice sugar in the flavor, husky grain, molasses, sweet red apple, and citrus and planty hops. Excessively light, fairly dry feel, moderate carbonation. While I can’t say that I really enjoyed this beer that much, I can say that the many odd aroma and flavor elements seem to be light in intensity, unlike many other sorghum based beers. Which is saying a lot in the gluten-free segment. Huhzubendah (3776) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle at Churchkey in D.C. Shared by a gluten free buddy of mine.
The beer is crystal clear, appearing light orange in color. The head is small and fades within a few moments. Both the aroma and flavor offer sweet apple juice. Apples soaked in alcohol. Some characteristics resembling a hard cider. This was tolerable, but I wouldn’t have it again. I won’t knock it too hard, because I have yet to have a palatable gluten free beer. Decent for what it is.

Bottle. Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Bitter vegetal and earthy skunky hops aroma and taste with a sticky palate. thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 8, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were and left behind a strongly carbonated transparent golden brown colored body. The aroma was of floral hop and must. The initial mouth feel was a shock with a strong initial flavor rush. The shock was less noticeable after the second sip. It has a strange cardboard aftertaste. The flavor was strange and hard to define. Not one that I would likely buy again. Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Weird, just plain weird. The nose smells like vitamins and burnt caramel malt. The beer is a murky light brown with no head. Sweet with strange off notes of vitamins and soap. Light with a weird vegetal finish. dwyerpg (6576) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Another un tasty gluten free beer. Not much of a surprise there, as it tastes a bit of cheap home made cheese cloth beer my dad made once. blutt59 (6624) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2012
bottled, thanks to the blackswan, amber colored pour with vanilla, wine and figs, thin plastic body hurts it
