For a ngb and vegan "lager"’ I say, kudos to you! No bitter or milky after taste. I thought it was crisp and clean. My favs are Stella, Pranqster Belgian Ale and La Gunitas Vegan 9%, haha! BeermanBabe (1) - Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2017 does not count
This is a disgusting beer. Initial taste is fine but ends with the taste of rotten eggs. Even with a lime it’s bad. DraftCaptain46 (1) - Lake Balboa, California, USA - MAR 6, 2017 does not count
Overall not totally undrinkable, especially if you’re gluten-free like me (only recently); however, this is my 1st GF beer--and after this one I’ll be trying the others. The 1st 1/2 of it I drank from the bottle, which tasted better than the 2nd 1/2 from a Pilsner glass (to see the color). Like many of the other reviews I’ve read, yes: watery, thin, notes of apple cider, slightly floral, big bubbles that disappear quickly (instantly vanishing head)--close to flat--finishes like not much at all is there. But there’s still a light pleasantness to it that I would enjoy in Spring & Summer with fruit (watermelon comes to mind) or a salad. It’s kind of more like a cross between a mineral water & beer. To me, it wouldn’t stand up to richer foods like pizza, except maybe a veggie pizza :) ronaldtheriot (1995) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - OCT 29, 2016
NGB has a thin, white head, a clear, bubbly appearance, some white sediment chunks, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is of odd medicinal, grassy syrup, and the flavor is of those elements, with a strange "zing" to it, at the end of each sip. Mouthfeel is medium, and NGB finishes medium dry. Tastes like a health food store item.

I love this beer. It’s got a light, crisp, fruity taste without tasting bland. It lacks the bitterness of most gluten-free beers. I’d have to say this is the BEST gluten-free beers I’ve tastes, and is the closest thing to Corona (my favorite beer before I became gluten-intolerant) I’ve found. It’s a wonderful beer for spring and summer, and especially after you’ve been doing yard work or working out.

2015 BJCP Category: 31A Specialty Grain Beerfordest (2469) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - FEB 24, 2016
AROMA: Almost completely odorless. The faintest lager-like aroma. 4/12
APPEARANCE: Clear gold; highly carbonated. White head fizzles away quickly like a soda. Looks like a cider. 1/3
FLAVOR: Borderline flavor-free. Some generic lager taste, though sorghum twang/grit presence is noticeable. Some apple juice character (acetaldehyde?). Not repulsive, but extremely lacking in palette. 7/20
MOUTHFEEL: Thin, crisp, watery texture. Clean finish. 3/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Not as twangy as much sorghum-based brews, but it has nothing going for it at all. Bottle was 5 months old. 3/10
TOTAL SCORE: 18/50
Bottle from Trader Joes and took it camping. Should have thought that through a little better. jamesewelch (259) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 20, 2016
From 12oz bottle, about $2 at Trader Joe’s, poured into 16 oz tulip glassluttonm (6758) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Aroma: cider, vinegar,
Appearance: golden, crystal clear, minimal head, white foam, virtually no head,
Taste: lightly sour, medium sweetness,
Palate: light body, thin feel, fizzy
Overall: A watery thin, crisp light lager. If you’re looking for a gluten free beer, just get a cider instead of this.
12 oz in Seattle. Very pale white yellow. Very clear and cidery look. Pale sweet, odd flavors but effect is still like a crappy weak euro/macro lager. Cardboard. Almost like a NA beer. mjg74 (3182) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Clear golden in color. Tastes like a watered down malt liquor. Not much going on in this beer. A beer that tastes like a bad malt liquor, coming in at 4% is not a good thing.
