There's going to need to be a category for gluten-free beers. If the best that can be said about it is that it's a "vegetable" beer, we need to start thinking harder.

It's a pale yellow with a big-bubbled pure white head about half a finger's height that sinks down to foam rather quickly but holds up a film on top that manages some light spotting and a few little legs here and there.
Sorghum has always given me the impression of sweetened spent grains. I get a little of that here, but Lakefront has actually done a good job of integrating it into the beer. There's a bit of green apple skin in with the molasses along with a touch of hop leaf. The flavor brings a little more into it than the aroma, which is a bit light all around, but for a beer devoid of malts this one works. More hops wouldn't hurt people with gluten allergies, so it would be nice to throw a little more into this brew.
Light in the body without being thin, there's a kind of effervescent feel to the carbonation, and a firm crispness stays consistent with a nice smoothness. There is a particular feel that takes from the cleanness, but barely and only toward the end.
