Draught, St Augs. Light amber. Toasty, with fruity hop. Light, bit thin, lots of hop. Herbal, almost sharp bitterness. Brown rice taste towards the finish. Lots of hops. Wow, gluten free has come a long way.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at St. Augustine’s. Glad I chose to take a chance and sample this. What a surprise. The aroma is bright and fresh with mint and toast. The alternate malts are really amazing here, these brewers are expert craftsmen. I was convinced they had smoked something because I kept detecting peat smoke. There is a whole lot of flavor layered, with generous hopping that never seems out of balance. The body is quite substantial for a GF beer. If you think about it hard, the lack of malt sugars makes for a slightly thin body, but again, only if I think hard about it. I’ve had way thinner bodies and thinner flavors from barley beer. It would be quite easy for me to pint this one. This is the GF that can fool you.

Vaguely hoppy with a dusty malt aroma. Hazy orange color with light tan head. Taste is a floral-rye bubblegum, very strange. Light but creamy body. Doesn’t have a finish to speak of. Interesting enough, but go with the IPA.

Light yellow pour with small white head. Aroma of grains and faint floral hops. Taste of grains and faint hops. Light bodied, higher carbonation, really quite undrinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Well, I’m curious what this will bring. The gluten free beers I’ve had in the past haven’t been very good so hopefully this will change things. Clear orange golden color, huge white head. Aroma has some hoppy notes, but a bit faint. Taste is pretty bitter with a decent hoppyness. Lightly floral as well. A bit too much carbonation imo, but otherwise a decent beer. Probably the first gluten free beer I’ve finished.

was thinking this was from euro, go figger. my red and silver pounder can says glutenberg american pale ale. has a nice head. .......looks like pale lager. smells fairly hoppy with some metal in the background. stronger flavor, does not hide alky too well. yes, that medium bitter personality starts to set in during the session. some wine in there too. since i was expecting something a little more civilized, a little disappointing. why go to canada when i can find this typical american pale ale taste all round here. neverthe less, glad to have had the chance to try it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Golden color, bright, with compact head. The aroma is fresh, fruity, hoppy, crisp. Lean mouthfeel; good malt flavor, quite crisp, some cereals, with late light sugars; strong bitterness with plenty of hop qualities; balanced.
It has something peculiar given the absence of barley, but it’s barely noticeable. It’s a remarkable effort.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
473ml can. Pours a deep light amber with a lasting white head. Smell is light, vague citrus and vague grains, which give off a toasted almsot smoky smell. The flavor is immediately defferent than an all-grainbeer. But it is also different than a sorghum beer. It has a huge bitterness that jsut sticks on your tounge. Citrus notes, agree with the grapefruit mentioned in the description and smoke. This beer is also super dry.It definitely isn’t super good but it is on the right track. Definitley gets more comfortable each sip.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rough but interesting aroma with dark fruity yeast, Rye like malts and a pleasant dark hop mix. As an American Pale Ale I expected more pronounced freshness, but generally it works very well I think. Smooth drinkable body too. Pleasant beer, certainly the best gluten free beer I ever had! (Bottle from Beer City)
