COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tread Lightly Ale is a great balanced beer made from fermented sorghum and corn, hops and yeast. It is a bright beer with light taste and body and without the after taste of other sorghum-based beers. Inspired by the old-style America Pilsner, our Tread Lightly Ale appeals to a new style beer drinker looking for a healthy alternative, low caloric content and great taste.

Bottle. Sweet, medicinal aroma. Golden yellow with minimal head. Sweet floral orange/lemon flavor with light medicinal finish. Fruity and light - thankfully I’m not gluten-intolerant though.

Sister in Law has a barley allergy. She bought the sixer, took two sips and gave the rest to me. I have a slightly higher opinion but not by much. Smooth drinking but weird after taste. Definitely not an every day beer but will be okay on occasion.

wlajwl (3814) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Aroma is grains, mild sweetness and the expected sorghum funk, although milder than expected. The flavor is malts, fruit/berries/strawberries, mild citrus and a tart finish. Better than expected, the sorghum was thankfully muted.

bhensonb (10933) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours gold with a creamy white head. Aroma suggests a wit, sort of. Med body. Flavor is sweetish with some citrus. Finishes a bit gummy.
Earlier Rating: 10/10/2010 Total Score: 2.8
Pours gold with a transient tan head. Light citrus aroma. Med body/mod carb. Flavor is mild grain(?) with a little citrus. Light but drinkable.

Patrickctenchi (3578) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Clear, bubbling gold with a quick, sopay head. Almost no scent,...light apple and water. Taste is apple juice, sorghum. Syrupy sweet, but thin at the same time. Not beery, except in colour,. More like a a very bland, flat, blunt cider. pass.

kramer (4903) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a pale straw gold body with a fairly heavy amount of haze to it under a very thin fizzy white head that faded quickly. The nose is quite bad, there’s a raw and rough apple juice like character to it along with a light corn syrup note. The flavor has a lot more in common with apple juice than it does beer. Sweet and slightly acidic with a lingering vegetal laced finish. Light bodied and super fizzy. Pretty yucky stuff.

queenholly (2919) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle. Very light sweet aroma. Clear gold with a very small, quickly dissipating white head. Light sweet sorghum and sour apple flavor. I like sorghum, but not this. LIght body, moderate carbonation.

DuffMan (6668) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle. Medium golden with a very brief white head that dissipates within seconds to a thin white ring. This beer possesses the same off-putting medicinal phenols I’ve found in the other two from this brewer. There is a tart cherry note in the aroma, but the palate is just all wrong. Undrinkabley foul.

edgallow (2001) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2013
12 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of sweet grain. Taste is real light grain but really nothing else. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nearbeer (3676) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 12, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 12 oz. Clear and pale straw colored with a small head that sizzles away. Aroma is caramelized sorghum, apple and a touch of grass. Taste is apple cider with some cane sugar and a touch of pith and dry grass. Light body is sweet and has light-medium carbonation. Even A-B’s sorghum beer (Redbridge I believe it’s called) puts this one to shame.
