2.31/5 rDev -15.1%
Another gluten free beer. This beer pours a pale yellow colour that reminds me of Canada Dry ginger ale. Very little head to speak of, and it quickly dissipates, leaving no lacing. Smells of grain, rice and green apples. Tastes like a weaker Budweiser mixed with a cider. Mouthfeel is thin and lightly carbonated. Overall, a disappointing beer.

2.54/5 rDev -6.6%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance is very similar to ginger ale. Pale yellowish color, big carbonation bubbles, quickly fading head and no visible lacing.
Smell is very soft, most of what I can detect is apple.
Taste is extremely light, again mostly apple although not nearly as distinct as a cider.
Mouthfeel is very thin bodied with light carbonation but definitely lives up to the "session beer" tag on the label. Not unpleasant but not very complex either.
Overall this is hard for me to rank since there isn't the typical malt and hops character to it. It is pleasant enough to drink but without any real character - maybe more like a Miller Lite than a craft beer. Were I a vegan, I'd probably prefer a good cider instead.

12oz Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for 2$
Appearance - Clear yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there isn't much lacing. The head lasted for around 2 minutes.
Smell - Corn, apples, grains
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste corn, apples, and grains. There is also a slight amount of floral notes. It ends with a apple aftertaste.
Overall – So hard to rate these gluten free beers.. to be honest they are all bad, but if they were the only option I'm sure they would be fine. This one has alight taste to it that might be good for a summer beer.
