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...

crackedmachine (471) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2012
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.

hbmason (1087) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2012
On draft pour. Yellow color with a light head. Light hop aroma and light hop taste. Not bad for a gluten free. Also a little grainy

Bottle, grabbed by Parksy by mistake! Of course it was a mistake-- who in their right mind would willingly choose a gluten-free beer? After having their aweful wheat beer, I was wincing as I tried this one... But it actually wasnít too bad. Thereís a good blast of citrus hops to distract from the fact that there is virtually no malt structure to be found. Woefully thin. As a gluten-free beer, its not a bad offering. As a beer on its own terms, itís pretty weak.

Bottle. Gotta be the best gluten free beer Iíve ever had. Pours light gold with a white head. Hoppy grassy-ish aroma with some spicy hoppy notes. The flavor has lemony and grassy hops, a spritzy mouthfeel, and light apple/white grapes. I actually quite liked this.

bhensonb (11047) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Can from Malt & Vine. Looks like itís been changed a bit - can puts ABV at 5.0%. Pours gold with a foamy white head. Nice aroma of resin hop. Near med body. Wow. Itís kind of like hopped soda. It is bitter and astringent. Thereís a good dose of hop. And now I fully realize how important it is that hop have a malt backbone to stretch out on. Gotta be the best gluten free I can recall. But itís sure not my desert island ale.

BelgianBeerGal (3190) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2012
NV Whole Foods bottle. I know Iíve said it before but man am I glad Iím not gluten intolerant...Boring, pale yellow pour. Aroma started like sweet hops but quickly moves into a weird gym-shoe smell. Itís a BIG flavor but reminds me of alka-seltzer and green apples. Bold, not really good and why in the world is this 8+ ABV?

presario (4624) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 30, 2011
Can. Had no idea this was so high in ABV when tasting. So pale not even yellow. No head. Faint scent of sugar. †Apple juice with a couple drops of vinegar.

Atom (1342) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 17, 2011
12oz bottle thanks to here4beer. Pours a hazy bright straw yellow with a small white head. Aroma reminds me of peach gummy rings. Taste is sweet fruits into medicinal alcohol burn. Iíve tasted far worse gluten-free beers. If I couldnít have gluten this might be an alright choice.

Bottle. This is my first gluten-free beer, so Iím going into this a bit hesitant. I appreciate that these exist, but I havenít particularly heard good things about their taste. This one though is pretty decent if ya ask me. A light, orange zest/grapefruit aroma. Taste itself is pretty watery with grapefruit in the taste, and a decently bitter finish. The finish is pretty crisp, and the body is maybe too watery but I like it enough. Oh well. Body is very light, and I mean seriously if you told me this is some sort of mellowed grapefruit juice Iíd likely believe it. Nothing to go out of your way to get, but it was nice to try and a pleasant surprise. Iíll point out that this description on the site states that itís 8.1% alcohol, but this bottle says 5% alcohol.
