Reddish gold color, white medium collar that reduces quickly to a spotty cover. Sweet beery aroma. Very neutral taste. Refreshing beer & the gluten-free has to be a welcome pleasure to people that are gluten intolerant.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, 13288 bottle code. Pours crystal clear deep orange/copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, honey, brown sugar, toasted bread, light biscuit/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. A bit too too fruity aromas, but not too overwhelming. Okay aromas with sorghum grains and mild earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of cracker, honey, brown sugar, toasted bread, light biscuit/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, honey, brown sugar, toasted bread, light biscuit/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness of sorghum grains and mild earthy hop flavors; with a solid sugar/bitterness balance, and no cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors, with minimal fruity/yeasty notes present. Slightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin, but not watery. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4%. Overall this is a solid gluten free amber lager. All around good robustness of sorghum grains and mild earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the minimally bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful for the ABV. Clean sorghum grains and mild earthy hop presence. An enjoyable offering, just a little too sweet.

A good quality Gluten Free (hearty) Beer is a hard beverage to find. When I saw this on the shelf I decided to try it having gotten Omission GF beer in the past . I was excited to see another option. This turned out to be much better than the Omission brand. I am not a beer expect but I know what I enjoy and my favorite in the past, before gluten intolerance, was Shiner Bock. So maybe that says it all.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Look: Clear amber with a nice white head that goes away within a minute.

Smell: A sort of spicy apple smell.

Taste: Faintly tastes of apples, with a little bit of malt. Can't detect any trace of hops.

Mouthfeel: Thin and carbonated.

Overall: I'm still not sure why this tastes like apples.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellowish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high translucent to white head that quickly collapsed and left a thick layer of bubbles covering the surface and the sides of the glass. The head then faded away, leaving only a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of apples are present in the nose along with notes of sweet malt extracts.
T: The taste follows the smell and is mostly dominated by flavors of green apples with hints of malt extracts. Little if any sweetness is perceptible.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied and somewhat thin and watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. There is a bit of cleanness.
O: This beer is very fruity and seems more like an ale than a lager (except for the mouthfeel). Although it's not especially flavorful, I thought that it was rather good for a beer brewed with sorghum as it didn't have any "off" or rancid flavors.

As a guy who has been allergic to barley for over 5 years. This was the first true beer I’ve had since I had to quit. I’ve got to say it taste amazing!!!! I’m assuming everyone giving this beer a bad review is able to drink any beer they want so they are comparing to the best.

L: brilliant copper amber with rapidly rising bubbles and a thin white cap with poor retention

S: low to medium low aromas with sorghum, light hop and yeast aromas with a trace of earthiness

T: The flavors are mostly fruit and grain and this beer lacks the sharpness found in some sorghum beer

F: thin with above average carbonation

O: Redbridge is inoffensive and comes across like a lightly beer flavored wine cooler

Pours crystal clear with a 1 1/2 finger whitish head that dissipates rapidly leaving no lacing. Tons of bubbles initially cling to the sides of the glass. Coppery orange against my wall, golden against my screen. Very attractive as far as clarity and color, but after a matter of minutes, it looks more like a glass of wine than a beer.

A little citrusy in aroma. The smell reminds me of ginger ale after the beer warms. Metallic and citric at first.

Tart for me, I don't get the sweet taste as others have. Pleasantly tart with a bit of citrus.

Moderate in body with a sting of carbonation. Drying.

Not a bad beer, especially if you're gluten sensitive, which I am. Metallic in taste and aroma when cold, but this dissipates as the beer warms. Fairly one dimensional in both aroma and taste, yet an easy drinker, and not unpleasant. With others commenting on the sweetness of the brew, I'm thinking mine is likely overaged.

Pours a deep golden color almost orange with a short lived head. Aroma of sweet grains, a bit of cooked veggie and slight skunk. Taste didn't fare much better. Soap, light dms and skunk character. Won't be revisiting.
