Hey I have seen a lot of very negative reviews on this beer so I would like to say I honestly have never been a beer fan. I'm not a drinker in general so my opinion on beer is honestly pretty weak. But on the other hand I am a professionally trained chef with my certificate. And this is one of the only beers that doesn't make me want to stop drinking it on the first taste.

But what I really wanted to say above all other things about this beer. Is that it makes the best fish and chips have have had in my life. Now that is something I'm a specialist on. I have worked in pubs for a number of years. And have travelled to England and tried the fish and chips all over the country. I am also a maritimer that loves loves his fish and chips.

So to a beer drinker it may not be the best to drink but to chef it's amazing to cook with.

I joined this site to warn people about this beer. I've been drinking gluten free for a few years due to a wheat allergy. I've tried a lot of different gluten free beers, and if I see a new one on the shelf I will usually buy it and give it a chance.

This is one of the first beers I've ever poured down the drain after one sip. It is absolutely disgusting. I'm going to keep the other 5 as a gag for my friends to see the reactions on their faces when they take a sip. I will have to have a good chaser beer to keep them as friends...

Do yourself a favor and don't buy this swill. Lazy Mutt.... what were you thinking? You guys actually boxed this up and sold in stores after trying it yourselves? Gross.

Hi everyone -

I believe its all about personal taste - and as subjective as that may be - we all have an opinion and certain tastes.

Some like dark rich beers, others like light white beers, others like beers that taste bitter that I personally wouldn't give you 2 cents for... But that's me - that's my personal choice.

I also like ciders and anything else that doesn't cause me to bloat and feel awful afterwards. To me, that's as important as the time when you consume the beverage.

If you expect Lazy Mutt gluten free beer to taste like the conventional beers made of wheat & barley you will be disappointed - at best. It's not made from wheat and barley and therefore I believe it shouldn't be approached as such. Expectations are the difference here.

When I tried it the first time I reminded myself that it won't be like the wheat / barley beers, because it isn't made with the same ingredients.

I found that I liked it - it has a deep- almost raw cider taste to it - and like I said before, I like most real ciders - so it wasn't much of a stretch for me.

I also found that I enjoy it more when it is really cold and drank from a chilled glass mug - again my personal taste - but that's what it's all about -

I encourage everyone to give it a chance - the first sip might be different than you are used to - but at least don't sabotage it for others by giving a negative (subjective) review - it's the only gluten free beer currently in Alberta and I for one would like to have the continued opportunity to purchase and drink it .... and you never know - it may grow on you if you give it an open minded try.

Best regards to all,
Thanks & keep on brewing gluten free!

This gluten free beer tastes horrendous. Theres a reason why there is a dead dog on the logo; because it drank some.
When I purchased this beer I was excited to support the first gluten free beer locally brewed in my hometown of Calgary, Alberta. When I cracked the twisty I was optimistic as the fruity aromas satisfied my senses.
After taking a large mouth full, my eyes expanded and watered. I was floored with a combination of cheap white wine, wet dog, and morning breath. The aftertaste continued to linger with disappointment and rancid malt.
I would strongly recommend steering clear of this god-awful micro brew. Lastly, if you love your dog, don't let them near this grotesque beverage.

Sorry lazy mutt, but your gluten free attempt is nothing to brag about. Better luck next time!

330ml bottle. Apparently this is brewed at their Calgary-based 'micro' brewery, and the ingredient list teases with the tantalizing 'fermented sorghum' and 'corn syrup'. Christ on a crutch, man. The depiction on the label suggests that this should instead be called Dead Dog ale, rather than the more pastoral 'Lazy Mutt'.

This beer pours a somewhat hazy, very pale golden straw colour, with one finger of loosely bubbly and crackling soda pop head, which dissolves before my eyes (I didn't even need to stick my finger in it), rendering absolutely zilch in the way of lace.

It smells of oxidized cheap white wine, musty yeast, some stewed vegetal graininess, the most very wrong kind of dusty old barnyard, and spoiled apples. The taste is erp, uh, gaaaah, well, murp (hold it down son, you've had worse, right?) - the taste is wet, infected cardboard and nasty oxidation, incarnate, all affecting the not-used for a reason alterna-grain, the hostage-level stale fruitiness, even the pithy yeast. A sort of hollow, indistinct, and somehow warm doughiness arises, before being assimilated fully into the gritty stewed veggie morass. I've given the score a measly extra two bits because I actually succeeded in keeping it down. Barely.

The carbonation is a tad fizzy, but wait a sec, and that problem solves itself, the body medium light in weight, with a filmy pithiness that has me scraping my tongue after only a few sips, so smooth, this ain't. It finishes on the dry side, in a "the snow's all melted, what's left underneath" sort of way. Subtle, I know.

I know the parity bar has been set pretty low for this pseudo-style, and I really feel for all those celiac beer lovers out there, but this is surely not the way to go. Unpleasant, warm where it shouldn't be, and too difficult to get through a whole bottle even for research purposes. Avoid like the proverbial pizza-hating Noid.
