Greenish yellow, lightly veiled. Avrage white foam.
Not much in the smell. A bit of green apple.
In the taste a light malt and cereal note. No hop.
Normal lager, avoidable.

A pretty decent lager. I don't know about the gluten-free or what effect it has, but this has good aroma, a nice corny flavor, and a crisp finish. Well balanced.

Edit: "A craft Natty Ice?" Aw, c'mon. Deserves better than that.

Pours a crystal clear and rather unappealing macro-like dull yellow with a finger of off-white foam.

Toasted malt dominates the nose with a barely noticeable hoppy herbalness.

While somewhat appealing in aroma, this is a swing and a miss in flavor. Very light, toasted malt flavor with next to no hop bitterness.

Light-bodied, high carbonation, bland, watery.

Overall, a beer that goes down with ease, but nothing to discuss. This is quite the lackluster lager.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.75

Look: Flat light yellow color, no head, no carbonation.

Smell: Smells like Natural Ice.

Taste: Tastes like Natural Ice. Not as watered down maybe?

Feel: Light flat feel.

Overall: Basically a craft Natural Ice. Not worth trying in my opinion. Only upside is it's gluten-free I guess. Skip this one. 3/10.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 5/5/2016. Pours fairly crystal clear pale straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast notes present. Moderate dryness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.6%. Overall this is a very good Pale lager. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Malty, sweet, hoppy lager. Crisp and refreshing! Hard to believe that this is a gluten-removed brew; I would not have known it except for the labeling and knowing about the brand already. This is not anything like Redbridge, New Grist, or Bard's. This tastes really good! (Warning: people with Celiac Sprue Disease should be wary as this beer does not claim to be 100% gluten free.)

12oz bottle (12:14 3 APR 19 16) drained into a perfect pint is a clear straw yellow floating a tight 1/4in white head.
The only aroma, other than stale beer, I can detect is sour. That can't be good for a lager.
The taste is fine, malt and sans bitter.
Mouthfeel is light, crisp, and clean.
If I had to.....

Label now is blue, at least here in West TX. I like it, but it will not be my choice for the "everyday" beer.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Clear 15.25-oz. pilsner glass
From: Brother-in-Law Ron
Price: N/A
Purchased: N/A
Consumed: Dec. 26, 2015
Misc.: Bottled on Aug. 4, 2015 at 6:48 p.m.

Poured a golden, pale, clear color with 3-to-4 fingers of white, fizzy head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Very good amount of uneven, foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Excellent retention. A great looking beer. (Sight - 4.50)

Smelled normal lager malts - corn, cereal, sourdough, honey, light grass, crackers and faint apple. (Smell - 3.75)

Taste was nowhere as good as the nose. Got a toned down watery version, leading with corn cereal (Kix or Corn Pops), followed by honey and light grassy grains. Unimpressed. (Taste - 3.00)

Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, watery finish. (Feel - 3.25)

I might have overrated this a tad, but it had its moments. Would not have it again on purpose though. (Overall - 3.25)
