12oz bottle I to perfect pint
Bb 1/15/19
Pours apps juice color with thin white head
Surprisingly smells like apple juice as well sparkling at that
Again apple juice on the taste as well
Feel is nice and crisp
Overall while not bad at all it tastes more like apple cider than gluten free beer

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best by" date "23 APR 2019".

APPEARANCE: pours a hazy and very light golden color with two fingers white head, excellent retention, the head grudgingly dissipated until a half finger cap remained, highly carbonated, there is significant lacing on the glass.

SMELL: initially sweet with a sour note and some green apple.

TASTE: initially sweet and the taste is more like an apple cider to me, there is an earthy note in there as well.

PALATE: light body and highly carbonated.

OVERALL: this is a very unique brew, they tried to make a gluten free beer that would mimic a pilsner style beer, this beer missed the mark as it really does not taste anything like a pilsner, still it's not terrible for what it is, I would recommend to anyone who required a gluten free diet but since I can tolerate gluten it's not something I would buy again.

12 oz bottle. Pours pale straw with tall, long lasting, fluffy, white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of sour dough and not much more. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is of sour apples and a hint of hops. Finish is long and dry. Taste is like a good cider.

L: brilliant straw with rapidly rising bubbles blanketed by a 1" frothy foam collar with reasonable retention

S: mild, sweet aroma of slightly sweet earthy sorghum, noble hops and spice

T: mildly sweet with a hint of apple, some sorghum and noble hops. It has a drying bitter finish with the sorghum a little sharp and the hops are a little harsh

F: The beer is light and the carbonation is high with a bit of prickle

O: This is an OK beer and a decent stand in for an American Standard Lager.

pours a clear light yellow color with a thin bright white head the dissipates fairly quick. Smell is slightly hoppy, not much else. Initial taste is crisp and fruity with a clean finish, perfect for a hot day. I don't care what all the others say about it, I could see myself drinking this all day long on a hot summer day.

From a 355ml bottle served at 10 degrees Celcius into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: Pours a brilliant straw with 1.5cm of foamy, white head that disappears in less than two minutes. Great lacing.

Aroma: Light intensity. Sweet and fruity with strong notes of apples. The smell makes me think of a cider. Some floral hop-character.

Taste: Follows suit with the nose. Light to medium intensity. Cider-like, fruity (apples), and sweet.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with lively carbonation. Prickly and refreshing.

Overall: This beverage is not as bad as I expected it to be. I picked up the bottle from the singles basket at the local liquor store because I had never seen the label before. First gluten-free beer that I've tried. I had to look up what sorghum was – ha!. The drink is refreshing, fruity, and sessionable. It surprised me and I do recommend it as a gluten-free option, however I wouldn't have it again. Purely from a stylistic perspective I think it deserves a higher rating, however my numbers reflect what I think of it as an overall beverage.
