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.

Clear, bright fizzy yellow. loose, soapy white head Almost no aroma. Taste is mildly sour, some sweet notes. I think it’s it’s lack of flavor makes it tolerable. Lots of sour apple notes as it warms.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, pale gold with mibimal head. Aroma is super weak. A little fruit and bread. Taste is light tart. Like a pinot girgio with champagn yeast. Light bodied with a thin texture. Soft carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, meh. Im glad i can consume gluten.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear golden with a tiny white head. Aroma of yeast and citrus fruits. Taste Is kind of white wine like and maybe a bit bready with a tad of bitterness and a dry finish; not that big of a fan. t

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light yellow colored body and no lacing. The aroma was cardboard. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The soft flavor contained notes of floral hops and malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

Pours a pale straw color with a hint of fizz... aromas are sweet, artificial fruity pebbles, apple juice... do I really have to take a sip. Welp it taste just like it smells... fruity pebble cereal with bland cider used instead of milk. Yikes.

No aroma at all. This is terrible. The flavor is cidery and thin but with a whole bunch of lime. Really impossible to drink. Worse than the raspberry.

Drake (8560) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a clear golden color with no head. Grainy, doughy malt aroma with faint hops. The taste is apples, doughy malts and faint sugar. Thin-medium bodied.

shadey (1897) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 16, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a clear bright gold with only a faint ring of tiny white bubbles around the perimeter. Aroma is lightly citrus, and a touch sweet. The flavors are more complex than I was expecting... some honey and corn sweetness, with a gentle carbonation and a clean finish. There is an odd hop finish that leaves a hint of bitterness on my tongue. I call it odd, because it seems out of place in a beer that is corn-sweet. Very interesting example of what can be done sans-gluten.
