Clear pale yellow,inch of head.Extra carbonation. Smells very citrusy and zesty all over the place.Lemon/ginger and just the smell of tartness,could be grassyness as well.Some citrus likefruitness.Cascades and or Centennial come to mind,possiblly chinook.I made a hoppy pilsner ale beer that smells and tastes almost exactly like this. Some sweetnees tart lemon,citrus,possibly even lime.strong carbonated crisp tart/bitter finish.Slight mineral/metallic.This is different,kind of in your face citrus tartness though,but good.

Pours a pale yellow color, almost a bit fluorescent, with a finger of white head. Nose is surprisingly hop forward. Orange peel and lemon zest give a strong aroma to the beer and it is followed by a bit of cracker and rice. Fairly sweet, too. Just a touch of grass and straw. The flavor is a touch bitter with some grass and citrus peel hop notes. As with the nose, a bit on the sweet side. Some cracker and rice, a bit of candied lemon peel, and a crisp finish. One of the better gluten free beers out there, Iíd imagine.

wlajwl (3743) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Aroma is citrus, vegetables and an odd note in the malts probably due to the sorghum. The flavor is citrus, vegetables/celery/spices, malts and a mild bitterness in the finish.

12 oz. can. Pours "1 hour after a multi-vitamin urine yellow" with fizzy fast-dissipating white head and spare carbonation. Nose is hopcitrus, I get some apple in this, and sorghum. Tastes of citrus, I get lemon, some ricey nectary organic notes, hops, and a very heavily carbonated finish. This one is decent for a GF beer.

kathouse (916) - Nevada, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Had this from the can at the brewery. Pours a pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is typical of a lager with a hay, grassy aroma. Very thin body but good carbonation. Flavor is light malt and bread. Some metallic like aftertaste which I think is a product of the rice. Itís not the can. Finish is clean with no hop bitterness. If I was a gluten free beer drinker, this wouldnít be too bad. Iím just glad Iím not.

BMan1113VR (7814) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Can. Easily the best gluten free beer that Iíve had! Pours with a very pale, very clear straw hued body with a massive foamy white head that slowly fades. Aromas are hoppy, herbal, citrus, lightly sweet pineapple, guava, medium esters. Otherwise pretty clean with a bit of a CO2 bite. Flavors are very clean, strawberry, low guava, citrus, dry, lightly sour. Clean, medium bitter, neutral-dry balance. Fizzy, seltzer, somewhat bland, but easy to drink. Both the best gluten free beer that Iíve had and the best (albeit limited) beer that Iíve had from this brewery. Grassy finish. Lively bubbles, very thin and very dry. Not half bad!

alobar (2715) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Pours straw yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grain, lemon, and thatís about it. Not much flavor with no hop bite. Bit of a skunked aftertaste. Thin body. Not much to it.

Although there is a decent amount of hops in the finish that impart a certain punch and bitterness, it is the upfront flavor which is rather odd in this one. I have not been a fan of any of the sorghum beers I have tried and this one is not an exception, though the use of hops has probably made it the best so far.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Can: † Very pale straw, clear, thin sudsy white head, little lacing. † Faint champagne yeastie like nose, touch of candied citrus peel... just a touch. † Tastes like a Pale Ale Mimosa, Champagne with a light Pale Ale. † Citrus is very minor. † Given its Gluten free its not too bad, and better than most. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Very little bitterness on the exit. † Seems to mainly be this Champagne like water, with a squeeze of orange juice in it. † Not an IPA would have again, but for Gluten free I at least didnt pour it out.   Lingering sweet lemon and lime.   A bit odd...

Can, labeled "Fox Tail Gluten Free Ale", 5.0% ABV. Pours a clear, fizzy light yellow with a white head that disappears right away. Aroma is semi-sweet, cider-like, and lightly tart, with a bit of floral hop. Flavor is bitter, almost medicinal, with a bit of syrupy sweetness that doesnít quite fit into the mix. Bitter finish. Actually, quite decent for a gluten-free beer. Iím giving this some extra points in the overall score because I appreciate gluten-free beer options, but I would never choose to drink this over a gluten-rich beer.
