A: Orange reddish color with a decent head of white foam. Medium level of carbonation. Minor traces of lacing inside the glass.

S: Smells like fresh earth with traces of wood and herbs. I like it. Quite a nice suprise.

T: Unorthodox flavors to say the least. A noteable hoppy flavor blended with mild soapy esters, with a woody and slightly citrus flavor toward the finish. Unique. Hard to call on this one, so for the benefit of the doubt, i'll say it's average.

M: Similar to a lager; thirst quenching, slightly slick with a noted touch of density. Not bad.

D: I personally don't know if i'd revisit this brew, but it's not a bad beer. Besides being gluten-free, what else is it? Does the lack of gluten result in fewer carbohydrate or calories or something? This is a beer of mysteries, wrapped inside an enigma, around a riddle. Different. Worth trying.

Pours a deep orange colour with a very thin head which disappears in seconds.

A very slight sweet smell but can't smell much at all.

Tastes slightly sweet a little bitter but not much going on.

Feels very carbonated and thin, similar to carbonated water.

Won't be buying this again, the worst of the gluten free beers I've tried.

Got this in at the shop a couple of weeks ago and I figured that, in the interest of customer service, I needed to try it. Pours a deep golden color topped by a finger of creamy off-white head that is pretty quick to vanish. Very still, almost no carbonation in the body. Aroma is a bit sweet - I guess that's what sorghum smells like. Palate is mildly sweet up front, then develops a dry, rather harsh bitterness that doesn't seem to come from any hops. Mouthfeel is a little dry and chalky, kind of odd.
I suppose if misfortune were to befall me and I were unable to drink beer brewed with malt, this would be an acceptable approximation. More likely, though, I'd stick with whisky.

Redbridge is a very clear golden beer with a white head that fades to a thin film and leaves decent lacing. It has a faint, sweet, sorghum aroma with a note of grass. It's very light bodied and watery with a chalky finish. There's hardly any flavor at all. There's a light sweetness in the finish. It tastes like non alcoholic beer. Nothing to see here; move along.

Jeesh, quite the trial brew here or what? I would think they could come up with some better ideas than this.

A bit amber in color, but not enough so. A bit "red" in the taste, but not enough so. A bit better than most of their offerings in the body and mouthfeel, but not enough. And it leaves a strange aftertaste. Really not sure what to make of this one, but I know I dont like it. It has an oddly dry and maybe fruity aftertaste. Something just doesnt match up well in this one.

They might be slowly headed in the right direction with a beer like this, but theres a lot of room for progress yet.

Pours out to a thin bubbly white head and amber color. No real head retention to speak of. Aroma is berry, apple and a hint of A-B banana and hop-skunk. Flavor is wine-like, reminds me of sherry or muscadine but is is very faint with some rubbery, skunky hops in the finish. Nothing resembling malt or cereal grain is in this brew. Mouthfeel for a low-point beer is average. Overall, this is a different taste sensation more like a watered down melomel or a cider and not much like beer, unless you count bad beer.

This beer has the most bizarre odor. It smells like an empty grain silo. Flavor is actually not awful for a gluten-free beer, and is the best of the ones I've had. If I had a gluten allergy and I didn't succumb to a lack-of-beer-depression, I would drink this.

Appearance is a crystal clear light red. Head is present (a plus) although small and commercial looking. Flavor is faint and watery but lightly hoppy. Mouthfeel is slick and thin, like too warm public swimming pool water.

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

Appearance: A Copperish bronze slightly yellowish. There is not much lace and has a little head.

Smell: Smells of cheap hops but at the same time sweet.

Taste: Sweet candy taste really fruity but hard to describe. The aftertaste is kind of flat. It is kind of like Turkish Delight.

Mouthfeel: Watery.

Drinkability: Not as bad as I heard but I don't plan on buying it again.
