View Full Version : Red Bridge

I put together a 6-pack of beers I'd never had this week. The Red Bridge is the first one to lose it's top.

I did not pay as close attention to the label as I should have, or I'd probably passed this one by, because I was mainly looking for micro-brewery beers, and I missed the fact that this is a beer from Anheuser-Busch. Nothing against A-B, but I was looking for Micros!

Anyway, this beer is a Gluten-Free Sorghum Beer. Made without Wheat or Barley. I poured this beer up into a tall pilsner glass, and drank it while eating a meal of seared salmon.

The pour-up yielded a medium to above medium head, that dissipated fairly quickly, kinda like a pour-up of a Miller Hi-life. The beer had a very crisp taste, with a quick finish, and very little aftertaste. If you like hops and bitters, this is definitely NOT the beer for you. I would best describe this beer as a Killian's in a light version. Similar taste, but kinda watered down in taste.

I can see this this as a good beer for a hot day, served very cold. It would make a great thirst-quencher, but it is lacking in taste and strength to be an effective beer for sipping. It has the same thirst-quenching and crispness as a Miller Hi-life, but is probably much more expensive.

Overall, I would give this beer a 6.5. Great for thirst, but lacking in depth.

Those beers are a clear sign that BMC are noticing the craft-beer market. It's funny how many there actually are if you look around. There are four beers that look to be craft that are in fact BMC at my local bevy.
