Bottle. Pours clear amber/copper with a medium off-white head that leaves decent lacing. Interesting aroma of citrus and perhaps metal. Flavor is different, but not bad - citrus, molasses, sorghum, definite spiciness. Mildly bitter, floral finish. Aftertaste is a bit odd

Another average grain spin by New Planet - this one floral, light, piney, and a bit sour. Like a wussier version of an East Coast IPA, I suppose.

12oz bottle, orange label. Aroma of brown rice syrup and spicy hops. Dark amber color, thin light tan head. Tastes like a hop flavored Clif Bar. Finishes with a bold hop bitterness. Not very well balanced. (3306)

12oz. bottle. Pours a minimal white head over a clear amber (SRM 8) body.....nose is minimal hop, faint cereal.....taste has hints of cereal, with dominate bitterness....mouth feel light, carbonation high. This has minimal interest in either aroma or flavor. It is not bad beer, there just isnt much to it. BJCP 5/3/10/4/5

Pours a orange reddish gold. Aroma of pilsner malt and citrus hops. Taste is medicinal. Tries to be a pale ale but is missing something. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle - Small white head. Falls just like cola when you pour that. Body is a clear light amber color. Lots of carbonation coating inside of glass. Very clear malt aroma. Bit of a sour molasses taste and burnt rice taste. Aftertaste is almost perfumy. Thin body. I guess if you have wheat alergies you might grow to like this,.

Nasty stuff here. Aroma was weak and nearly undetectable. Could pick up a slight graininess and not much else. Pour was a nice enough medium brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was pretty nasty. There was a distinct grainy flavor in the front that tasted like burnt oatmeal. Slightly sour in the finish (which doesnt linger). These beers are hard to finish but the strong carbonation make them refreshing in a weird way (and keep them from being drain pours)

This is a good choice for the gluten free crowd. The beer snobs have hit on this horribly but it is really not bad. It has a fuller flavor than most commercial swill and wont upset the gut either!

No way I can top 3fourths comments, they are spot on! Clear copper with a thin white head. Scent is corn which fades to something worse. Taste is fruity and old cereal.
