This rich, dark and decidedly tasty ale is brewed with coffee and cocoa which lends a complex and roasted flavor profile to balance brown sugar notes of a typical American Brown Ale. In 2012 NPB won a Silver Medal at the GABF in the Gluten Free Category with the Brown Ale, and starting this September, will be packaging and distributing this ale nationally.

well...iím officially not a fan of any of these beers. they all have an off smell and taste, and this is no exception. nothing resembling a traditional brown except (kind of) the color.

This brown ale poured a deep amber colour with next to no head. Even after a vigorous pour. Scents include herbal liquor and cardboard. Flavours of very light vinegar and ripe fruit. This has to be off. Otherwise you guys have alot of work to do...

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours rather dark copper with a slight beige or tan head. Aroma is strange, but does have a cocoa note. Med minus body. Flavor is rather ugh, and finishes somewhat thin and acrid, tho the cocoa survived. Not liking it.

Clear copper color with metallic aroma with some chemical. Sweet molasses flavor with some funk.

The aroma is cardboard, brown sugar, and chemicals. The appearance is light brown with a very thin head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall pretty much like all the New World Beers.

Bottle. Clear, medium brown color. Medium to small head. Funky, sweet, molasses aroma. Taste, toffee, molasses, touch of funk. Not really bad for a gluten free beer.

Had at the Great Arkansas Beer Festival 2014. This one is better than their Pale, but still not quite "beer." Iím glad it is available for my gluten intolerant friends. Making progress.

Ok ... well ... first of all I have to say that as someone who is a beer lover who has recently found out he was gluten intolerant ... I applaud New Planetís attempt at making a gluten-free brew. I think some of the comments here are undeserved. If you are drinking this and rating it as a beer head who doesnít think twice about gluten ... I get it ... this brew is never going to compete with founderís or bellís or stone, but they are trying to do something new and useful for a lot of people. Ok ... on for the review. Pours a clear amber with a yellowish off-white head and just a touch of lacing. Sweet nose, but not offensive. Flavor profile is interesting. Definitely malty, with some nuttiness, but some notes of sour mash and malt liquor predominate, throwing off the balance. Decent attempt ... interested in trying their other gluten-free brews.

I could only compare the taste to molasses. This is one of the least tasty Gluten-Free beers I have tasted.

12oz bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a thin white head that does not stick around. No it is not very good but for a gluten free beer it is actually one of the better ones. Luckily I do not have big issues with gluten so will not be having any more of these but it was drinkable and for gluten free that is saying alot.
