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.

Grassy and sweet to start. Pretty average on all accounts - take your macro lager, make it a bit more refined, and here you are.

Bottle @ home. Golden, yellow appearance with a white head. Lemon, honey malty, straw, hay aroma that isn’t all that bad. Juicy Fruit, lemon, light passion fruit, honey, hay, grassy, green apple flavor. Not horrible for a GF but not something I would drink again.

Pours a clear, rather wan straw yellow with not much head. Crisp aroma is fruity and has a hint of malt, but not much else. Flavor is a little better, fruity almost like a cider, a bit sweet - not complex, but OK. Smooth texture has decent fizz and body, and leaves a fruity, cider-like finish. One of these days I will find a truly good gluten-free beer.

Bottle. Poured a clear pale color with an minimal frothy white head that mostly diminished with minimal lacing. Moderate grain and light hop aroma. Light to medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short duration. Soft brew.

Looks like apple cider. Smells like old flat lager. Unique plastic flavors between homemade apple cider and beer. Good sizzle. Weird mild grain alky finish.

God this is an awful beer. My first attempt at a gluten free beer. Aroma was nothing. Couldn’t pick anything up. Pour was a very light clear gold with no head. Look like light yellow water. Taste was nasty. Couldn’t pick up any detectable flavor except nastiness. I still have another of their beers in the fridge. If I had allergies and could only drink gluten free beer I would just not drink it.

Uhh, this beer fails to come close to anything in it’s description. It is tour, rotten, and sorghum-infested. Not a good one, in fact a really poor GF beer.

12oz bottle, green label\cap. Pours clear, golden color. Thin barely existent head. Aroma of corn, sweet malt extract. flavor is unique. Starts off with a bit of tart notes then is the sweet honey character, touch of berry. Honey essence in the finish along with lightly sweetened corn cereal. Liquid KIX cereal. I don’t think this is as good as it could be, if there was some sort of fruit addition.

Sampled on 3/1/2012. This specialty grain ale pours very light orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is sorghum and corn, a touch of spice. A light to medium bodied gluten free beer. The Non-malts are corn, sorghum and sweet. The hops are floral and herbal. Started out fairly lively carbonated, but the carbonation disappears quickly. It really tastes like a cross between ginger ale and corn chexs. I can understand trying to brew gluten free beers, but I have yet to find out that I would want to drink more than once. This one comes the closest I have had so far, but I think if I had a gluten problem, I would switch to drinking wine and ciders. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is sweet.
