I got a sample bottle of this the other day at work.... not much cold around the house so thought I'd give it a try... (Does anyone else find it humorous when you have to precede a rating with your disclosure of why you would be drinking something of that nature in the first place?)

Pours a weak yellow color. Aroma is difficult to find. The flavor is almost non-existent throughout the sip. It does somehow remind me more of beer than, say, tonic water, but I cannot explain exactly how. The only real notable flavor is a bready aftertaste. Even that disappears quickly.

Mouthfeel is light, but the beer is nicely carbonated.

* I feel as if I was rating this specifically compared to other Gluten-Free beers (which I have never tried), there is an opportunity this would be getting a much better rating from me. However, since it is being listed as an American Pale Lager, I am rating this while considering it as such.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a mug. Terrible, skunky is the highlight of this beer. Actually the appearance is ok. That is the best I can say.

Gluten free is becoming a trend it seems, not surprised that Widmer has jumped aboard with light examples of this beer type.

A- Golden yellow and ultra clear with a very foamy but fizzy white head. Retention is very low and the head disappears completely quite fast. No lace in sight.

S- Smell fairly reminiscent of Bud or similar American Light Lagers. Adjunct malts and light sweets. A tiny hint of fruit.

T- Lager yeast and bread mixed with light cracker malt sweets. Tiniest bit of hops and fruit in the finish.

MF- Light body with a fairly creamy feel. Small hint of bitterness.

I think they omitted much more than just the gluten here. It isn't nearly offensive but hardly brings any flavor or interest to the table.
