1.05/5 rDev -55.1%
Smells like really bad beer, but at least it smelled like beer. This is it's strong point.
Tastes like adhesive. Really strong aftertaste of synthetic aircraft grade adhesive spray.
My first Gluten free beer. I sure hope there are other options for the gluten free people. I'll try to find a better option and report back.
No further detail.

Appearance - Poured from a bottle into a Duvel tulip glass (I feel like I have now tainted my tulip glass). Yellow, small tint of copper.
Smell - sweet, surghom sugar.
Taste - no flavor whatsoever. Aftertaste of sorghum.
Mouthfeel - so-so.
Overall - I would only recommend this beer to my gravest enemies.

1.4/5 rDev -40.2%
Appearance: Gold amber glass shows almost painful clarity. Pours with an active white head that dies back like soda to just a half collar.
Smell: Rubbing alcohol? Dusty vodka? First whiffs are very alcoholic with a vegetal funk going.
Taste: Oh gawd. This is drain food. Very chemical tasting, medicinal/band aid nasty. Tonic water base offers no redeeming qualities.
Mouthfeel: Thin, carbonated water. Dry finish.
Overall: I feel for folks that can't process gluten, but I'd steer them over to a good vodka over this. I'm taking this out back and shooting it.

Came out of the bottle a cloudy orange with no head at all.
This beer had a very faint sweet smell which must be the sorghum.
Doesn't taste terrible has a sweet bitter taste.
Felt pretty thin in the mouth will a little carbonation.
Overall as a gluten free beer this isn't too bad, but compared to it's gluten enriched rivals it fails to inspire.

This beer is a palatable below average beer. I wouldn't chuck it I wouldn't buy it but if you but it in my hands I would raise it to my lips on instinct
A) to dark for an american style lager this is thanks to the sorghum base that makes up this drink
S) I'm holding to my nose as I type this and all I can say is... theres not a drop of art in this glass
O) this beer is not bad at all... just... effectively boring

Gifted by Huhzubendah- Thanks Matt!
Pours a light gold color w/ a small off white head. This brew leaves a small amount of lacing on my snifter glass. Pretty clear in appearance- I can see through to the other side very easily. The nose on this makes me wince a little bit- it's like no other beer I've had... I mainly get some rice, sorghum, and sugar sweetness in the nose. It's not good. The taste follows suit, although a touch better. There's a mild hops aftertaste that kind of cleanses the sugar out of your mouth. It's pretty bad, but not the worst thing I've had. The feel is light, w/ good carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, I'm glad I got to try a Sorghum beer, but I think I'll stick to the regular stuff from here on out. Cheers.
