2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
New Planet Gluten Free Pale Ale has a fairly thick, off-white head, some thin lacing left behind on the glass, and a clear, caramel appearance, with lots of bubbles streaming up from the bottom of this etched tasting glass. Aroma is weird and medicinal- sweet, strange, and like a health food store. Taste is odd as well- the same medicinal health food taste, with the molasses, sweetness, and a decent hop bite at the end. Mouthfeel is pretty watery, and New Planet Pale Ale finishes not too dry, mediciny, and bitter. Well, for what it is, I’ll rate it at the low end of good. It’s okay to me, but I can see how it would really gag other drinkers. RJT

Bottle. Lovely bright orange colour, crystal clear, with a rapidly fading head. Aroma is of bread and tea. Flavour is really horrendous, and quite a shock after the muted but pleasant nose. Harshly bitter with medicinal and latex rubber notes. There is something dominantly phenolic here in an awful way. Undrinkable for me.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - Hoppy with some bread, grains and sweet malts. Dark clear amber with no head. Bitter right off the bat, a bit of fruit tartness and an alcohol burn that overwhelms and is out of balance. Almost closer to a strong ale than a pale ale. There is a cloying taste in the finish that builds as you drink and not too pleasant. Not great, but so far the more flavorful of the gluten free beers I have had.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker.pours a clear rust orange with a thin ring of off white head. Aroma of caramel and molasses with a good dose of floral hops. Taste is light bitter. Floral hops and wet cardboard. Medium bodied with a slick crisp texture. Lively carbonation and a long, lasting finish. Overall, not horrible. Dexent enough for a gluten free brew.

"tastes like beer" Poured without much head which disappeared quickly. This gluten free brew has a pleasant citrusy flavor with pretty decent carbonation, which I’m finding is a problem with gluten free beers. Nothing special here, but this one could actually almost pass off as a non gluten free.

Pours a clear amber with an inch of white foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma is maybe honey and citrus. Taste is sweet with sorghum and honey and a bit of hoppiness.

Pours a clear copper with a tea type head. Nothing coming through in the scent really. Flavor is bland and lifeless. Does it taste like a pale ale? I guess, in some roundabout way, but this is the first gluten free beer I’ve tried and it’s nothing to write home about.

Delightful! Beer made with brown rice, kind of like Sake (which is made from white rice). I taste a hint of the Sake flavor, but with hops and yeast, it’s a real beer. Gluten-free, which is cool. a really delicious beer, more breweries should take notice of this fine Boulder, Colorado Brew Co.
