look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

12oz bottle snagged from the wife's sixer, poured into a Ram pint shaker.

A: Pours a perfectly clear straw color with a gold-like shade to it, just darker than standard BMC...soapy white head fizzles quickly away, little-to-no-lace.

S: Clean, grain sweetness. Hints of red apples and cider. Maybe a ghostlike suggestion of honey...overall the aroma doesn't strike me as extremely "beer-like", not even for a light lager.

T: Follows the nose...tons of grain sweetness (though its not a 'malty' flavor)...absolutely ZERO hop presence or bitterness in this thing...warm cider and faint fruitiness emerges.

MF: Watery but refreshing...mouthfeel has lower carbonation than I expected. Thin but not unpleasant.

O: Really? It must be a lot harder to make GF beer than I think. This is pathetic.

Poured out as a reddish amber color with a fizzy white head on top. No head retention or lacing here. The Smell is different, it's not exactly grainy but I think I can tell that it has something in there since its gluten free. There are some yeast aromas and maybe a touch of hops but nothing else really. The taste of the beer is rather bland in my opinion, the flavors are earthy and nothing really pops out otherwise. The mouthfeel is arbonated and light bodied, drinkable but not really all that pleasing. Overall it was decent but nothing I would purchase in the future.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a clear golden-amber hue with a thin head that dissipates instantly. Lacing is pretty nice.

Smell - It has a subtle sweetness and a little grainy.

Taste - It's quite sweet, but a strange sweetness I can't exactly describe. Has a strong metallic flavor to it too.. along with a corn-like flavor in the finish. It's probably the sorghum?

Mouthfeel - Light body with medium carbonation. Very crisp.

Overall - It's quite drinkable.. but for some reason I usually get heartburn from this beer.
