A: [3.50] Really pale yellow. Looks kind of like Mt. Dew (almost on that neon side). The pour yields a small white head that is gone quickly. The bottle lists the ABV (4.6%). Made 7/9/14 - so it is 6 months old.

S: [3.25] Malts, breadiness and some caramel tones.

T: [3.50] The flavor is very neutral. Some hints of malt and breadiness.

M: [3.50] Carbonation and mouth feel are right for the style.

O: [3.50] This is a beer you could transition someone from BMC to craft with. It has a mild taste but is slightly more complex than an AAL. This would be great on a hot day. If I had Celiacs I would be all over this. It doesn't seem to be missing anything in the flavor profile.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grains, grassy. Taste is mild, grains, grassy, some malts, very easy drinking. Feels light in the mouth and overall, while not a very flavorful beer, it would make a good thirst quencher on a hot day.

12oz bottle - Widmer? Portland? My wife was just flipping around season 3 of Portlandia on Netflix today! Nobody really reads this shit, right?

This beer pours a slightly hazy, pale golden yellow colour, with two fingers of puffy, rocky, and mildly bubbly dirty white head, which leaves some well spread-out sudsy and striated lace around the glass as it quickly recedes.

It smells of crisp, grainy pale malt, wet saltine crackers, breakfast biscuits, watery lemon juice, ethereal petrol fumes, and leafy, earthy, and dead grassy hops. The taste is more bready, grainy pale malt, just a touch of corn-bred sweetness, now totally sodden discount brand soup crackers, subtle gasohol notes, and still prominent earthy, weedy, and grassy hops.

The bubbles are quite understated in their plainly frothy ministrations, the body medium-light in weight, and generally smooth, a small airy creaminess manifesting, right where I was looking for something more sinister. It finishes just off-dry, the graininess of the tinkered-with malt still prominent enough to keep those apparently noble hops more or less honest.

Forget gluten-free, this is one of the better lagers, period, that I've had in a long while. Crisp, tasty, and well-rounded, with a few old-world nods, the kind that make me shake my head when I see what this is listed as here - 'light lager', really? Ok, things and recipes may have changed over the intervening years, but I think this offering deserves a whole shitload more respect than to be lumped into THAT category.

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Ever so faint aromas of bready malts are present in the nose. Hints of floral hops also become noticeable once the beer warms up.
T: As in the smell, the taste isn't very flavorful and has hints of bready and cracker malts along with a slight amount of bitterness from the hops.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink. While it isn't overly flavorful, it's not bad compared to many of the other beers in this style—beers which can be considered as having unappealing flavors of adjunct malts. It's also much better compared to gluten-free beers because it is made from grains containing gluten but then the gluten is extracted out later—you don't get any rancid flavors of sorghum.

Excellent Gluten Free Bier. Light Crisp Taste. Nice to find a gluten-free bier that isnt made from Sorghum or Rice.
