Pale gold in color with a light haze due to suspended miniscule sediment. There's a fingernail of dishwater white on top. Aroma is sweet corn like sorghum. It tastes like extremely sweet French apple cider. The mouth is very carbonated and thin.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle that expires 16 Aug 2015. Sampled on June 4, 2015.

Straw yellow, carbonated, heady pour. Thin color.

The aroma has a hint of toasted bready and malts and a bigger does of lemon. But the aroma is very thin.

Thin watery body.

The taste has little character. A bit of pale malts and toast and again with the lemon. But it reminds of a non-alcohol beer.

Light, crisp and a bit thin, no real body and a some flavor I cannot detect. Based on a 65 rating, I though opening this would summon the devil and cause wide-spread panic on earth. That was not the case, I'm still alive.

I spied this as a sixer in the Friendly Greek's cooler, but Teddy was reluctant to split it up as he has a number of gluten-sensitive customers and he was unsure about allowing others open access to it. Since then, he routinely puts singles in the cooler as even the people who drink it are not necessarily interested in a full six pack.

From the bottle: "Certified (GF) Gluten-Free".

I Pop!ped the cap without any notable occurrences, so I employed an aggro pour to get things started. This produced two-plus fingers of foamy, bone-white head with reasonable retention. Color was Pale-Straw (SRM = 1 - 2) with NE-plus quality clarity. Nose smelled like apple juice or apple sauce! Is there a difference? Apples to apples. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium. The taste was odd. It had an apple-like taste but it was very dry instead of being the expected sweet. I began to think of a cross between apple and pear ciders and the more that I cogitated on it, the more that I liked it. It could be a bridge between beer and cider for beer drinkers and for the G-F crowd, it would make a nice alternative to cider. I am sorry, but most G-F beers are really lacking or need help in the form of a blend. The ciders, which are naturally G-F, do not have this problem. The finish was gaspingly dry and I even began to think of a dry white wine. I liked this, but one was probably plenty. It might be a good mixer with cider or with some of the less-palatable G-F beers.
