Poured from a 12 ounce can. Looks like cider. The aroma is grainy with some apple. The flavor tasty green apple, green apple skin-tannic. Not very good as a beer, but as a gluten free beverage it is not bad. I do not want another one.

12oz can pours clear gold with thirty second near white head of weak foam. The aroma drags up modest levels of sugary sweetness, a dry white paper earthy note and a couple of slivers of citrus fruit. As it warms it gets more Malt Liquor like with slightly chemical and pear to apple fruitiness. The taste has bitter lemon to lime to grapefruit sort of citrus notes that have a vague sort of sugary backbone to them helping to keep them grounded. The hop notes seem to stray into a bit of hop leaf astringency near midway and then again into the finish and that keeps the flavor from coming together in a cohesive manner. I think if this was a little closer to 40F serving temp and I was outside in the heat this might be a suitable choice.

Pale Yellow Color, Medium Bubbly Head Dissipates Quickly, No Lacing. Cider or Champaign Like Aroma that reminds me of Apples. Tastes like champaign, apples, citrus, light bitter ending. Waaaay over carbonated, very hard to drink until. Have to wait for fizz go away, makes it easier to drink. Thank God, This one has no Sorghum in it, so it is actually drinkable and somewhat enjoyable Glutten Free option for people that need it. OK for what it is...

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

Poured from a 12 ounce can provided graciously by bytemesis. Thanks! Pours a pale gold with a white head of foam that has decent retention. The aroma is grassy and sort of resinous. Taste is drily bitter with a weird sweetness on the verge of tartness. Kinda soapy. I donít know how I really feel about this one. Itís not really doing it for me.

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.

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...

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.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2012 12 ounce can. Pours a clear fizzy golden color. A ripe apple nose. A rich apple and citrus flavor, sour at times, glue, just ok. A bit odd as most gluten free brews tend to be.
