2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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)

Bottle. Light amber, or deep golden, whichever suits you. Frothy white head that leaves early lace. Aroma is delicate perfumey floral hops, nice but just not all that assertive. Flavour is certainly hop centered, mostly floral aromatics, ending in astringent aspirin-like bitterness. The malts here actually aren’t bad; they have a nice texture and contribute just a light flavour. A very good gluten-free offering. I’d have this again.

1.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2014 Pint can. Aroma of fruity and floral hops, even a little sweeter than expected, pours copper-golden with below-average carbonation and supports a dense beige head that’s rocky and has light legs. Nose is just a touch grainy, but not bad. Taste is all kinds of werd soft grainy notes mixing in with heavy, perfume slurry, and not just floral notes from the hops -- the grains impart this really oily, sweet texture that’s off-putting in how far it is from a beer (I’ve definitely found this in other buckwheat offerings) and there’s a fumy, boozy character that would have you guessing this to be 15% abv (just without the heat). Light-medium body. Clean with a finished fermentation, but gonna have to do better than this. The gluten problem is a really tough one.
