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.

A: The beer pours a clear golden color with no head to speak of. S: A mild pepper note as well as some "malt", rice, and cardboard. There’s definitely some apple and crappy tofu aroma. A little bit of soap and water in there, too. T: Apples and water, soap, and more of the wonderful crappy tofu character. There’s plenty of wet cardboard with a mild sweetness and a general sense of blandness. M: Light and watery with a medium level of carbonation. O: Rather crappy; just like all the gluten free beers I’ve had.

Nothing special, just a slightly above average, tasty, easy to drink beer. Yeah, it does show a slight rye lean, I actaully like that playing off the traditional pils. Nice and spicy

PorterPounder (5589) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2011
Denver, Co. - Tower Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, tight white head. Sweetish wort-like aroma with a hint of honey. Flavor is sweet with some maple-syrup sweetness, a little bit of nuttiness, some grainy notes. Mouthfeel is a tad artificial and slippery. Overall, not bad for what it is and if this is what the doctor ordered me to drink - I could.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head that slowly fades. Taste is of corn, grain, grass, honey and yeast. Similar aroma. Rather sweet. Has a light, watery body. Easy to drink and refreshing, but rather generic.

Pours golden with no head. Imperceptible aroma. Full nectar with good carbonation. Malty sweet with flavors of nectarine, citrus, and vanilla. The finish is horid.

Bottle pours yellow with a white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy with hints of honey and corn. Flavor shows basically the same with hints of cracker and some grassy hops.

Nice easy drinking special beer. The base malt not being regular malt this was tasty and not that off from a regular malted beer. Nice hops and a good dry finish. I liked this a good lawnmower beer.

Reminding myself that this is marketed specifically as a Gluten-free alternative. I had picked up a 6-er of this for a gluten sensitive, and unfortunately beer loving coworker. It has a bit of sweetness, some nice density to the taste. Not bad, by far the best option for the gluten intolerant.

Considering the restrictions they have placed on themselves this is really well done. Takes some getting used to but it has a nice little burst of sparkle to it. I think most people might not know it was sorghum.

Draft at Brewers Rendezvous. Tasting of 7/10/10. Pours a thin head, over a clear yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is light cereal, bit of floral honey....taste is light sweet malt, with a bit of cereal......mouth feel is light, carbonation medium. Although rather light in all characteristics, the is about the best gluten free beer I have tasted. BJCP 6/2/10/4/5
