2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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...

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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?

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.
