Evolutionary (501) - Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 Bottle from giant eagle. Little nose and poor pour. Plastic apple like taste. Best and worst gluten free beer I’ve tried. ---Rated via my mouth

Block (2722) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Pale pour, no head. Aroma is fruity. The flavor is light, sweet, fruity. Some apple.

onceblind (9626) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2015
Clear light golden like a pilsner, with a thin rocky white head that recedes pretty quickly. Malty and bready nose with a little sorghum and light toasted nuttiness. Smooth medium body with a nice wheaty, bready middle and a little german blonde malt undertone throughout. A bit of weird GF - sorghum note at the start but it smooths out. Loads of crackery-blonde-germanness.

csaso (2283) - Missouri, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle - fair size foamy head, clear dark gold color, very sweet corn and sugar aroma and flavor, some sweet fruity notes in there, crisp finish, a little too sweet overall for my tastes ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yellow brew with no head but lots of bubbles and this is the best part of this one. Smells like cheap wine, you know that kind we would buy as kids to make trash can punch with. Kind of thinking of that, this tastes like trash can punch. Oh the memories... until I blacked out. Nothing about this beer is appealing or good. Very glad I found this as a single cause I would hate to pour a whole six pack down the drain. Got another style from this brewery so hopefully that bottle will be better than this.

Astograph (19) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 24, 2015
Awful beer. Pours like ginger ale but with hardly any foam. Aromas of barely anything punctuated with a mildly bitter taste. To its credit, it has a fairly nice dry finish (again, not unlike ginger ale), but the overall sensation is like I’ve just been drinking bitter carbonated water.

Travlr (24640) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden color, pretty much flat. Aroma of raw bread. Taste is bready, light bitterness.

First thing I did after tasting this for the first time is check the sodium levels. I was astonished it has zero sodium. First sip tasted like Alka seltzer. Have to spit after each sip, this beer truly tastes horrid...

RSRIZZO (1986) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2014
12oz bottle (Courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 39°. Color is a bright gold with very bubbly carbonation giving it a loose rocky head. It looks like a glass of ginger ale. Aroma is sweet, like malted sugar and a hint of fruit. It has a light crisp body that feels bubbly. Flavor is sweet with malt and corn, it comes across like unfermented wort. In the after taste the sweet gives a honey like taste and a very faint bitterness that lets a slightly dry feel come out. Overall its very strange, but I kind of like it.

alexsdad06 (10376) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle from backlog notes 2012. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, grainy yet different, apples, cereal malts, very light hop character, just bland with sweet character. Glutenfree is nnot something I have enjoyed to this point.

hotstuff (5158) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Backlog rating on 9-19-2012 (Bottle) The appearance is a small semi-fizzy white head, transparent pale yellow body, no carbonation observed, and no lacing. The aroma is corn and sweet. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is light bodied. This beer is not my kind of beer. It lacks so much in all categories. Obviously, it does not leave me to recommend or desire this beer again.
