A: Pours a clear copper red with a two-finger tan head that fades to virtually nothing, leaving no lacing to speak of.
S: The nose is actually quite impressive. There's a rich toffee-like candy and an interesting yeastiness that almost hints at Belgium. No real hop aroma, but it smells much better than Bud ever did.
T: Most beers start sweet and then develop or not. This one starts with virtually no taste at all, then develops to a cloying artificial sweetness. Then an odd dryness kicks in just after the mid-palate. The finish returns to the cloying saccharine sweetness, which persists well into the aftertaste.
M: Light-to-medium bodied with light carbonation.
O: By now, I've had most of the major gluten-free beers (we have a friend with Celiac's, and as a brewer, I'm curious about sorghum-based beers). I truly do believe that the American lager styles simply don't work well for gluten-free. The Belgian styles I find to be better, and I believe that somebody can make a decent sorghum stout, but for some reason the market seems to be driven by people wanting a gluten-free Bud.
