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.

Lukaduke (2362) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 4, 2012
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.

dwyerpg (4637) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 12, 2012
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 (8981) - 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 (1910) - 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.

Evolutionary (298) - Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 Bottle from giant eagle. Little nose and poor pour. Plastic apple like taste. Best and worst gluten free beer I’ve tried. ---Rated via my mouth

Sledutah (5096) - Utah, USA - SEP 6, 2012
12oz bottle from the state store
Appearance: Pours clear straw golden with a medium sized white head and good lacing
Aroma: Pale malts, sweet and alcohols
Taste: Malts, green apples, sugar and herbal bitterness in the finish
OK, different.

marcus (6769) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours nearly colorless with a rocky white head and no aroma that I could detect. There is a slightly sour sorghum flavor with a dry finish. Drink this only if your body requires gluten-free.

12 ounce bottle at the State Store: yes it has come to this, we get a new beer into the state and it is a gluten free one! Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. A sweet apple nose with some candies. The flavor is dry, fizzy, lots of apples, some light copper. Decent.
