Anheuser-Busch Redbridge Beer

Anheuser-Busch

USA

OK, I suppose A-B should be lauded for making a beer specifically to those on gluten-free diets; although, since several million people in the US alone suffer from celiac disease, it's possible they're just looking for another market niche. Cynicism aside, the beer pours a rather handsome amber, and has a pleasant enough malty-sweet aroma. The first sip has a fairly pleasant sweet flavor with caramel notes. Unfortunately, within a few sips the sweetness passes quickly from pleasant to annoying to cloying to tedious. I hear there are some regional brewers out there brewing gluten-free (with sorghum, btw) ales and such; sure hope they're putting out a better product.
