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 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

Vinous and sweet honey nose. Light gold color, no head. Slight candy sweetness, orange pith bitterness. Medium carbonation, this body, wine cooler cidery finish. Not having much experience with gluten free beers I have no comparison, more alcopop than beer.

I picked up a six-pack to take to a 4th of July BBQ, as my wife is intolerant to gluten. From a technical standpoint this ale very well made. In the glass it was crystal clear, with no sediment in the bottle and there were no noticable off aromas or flavors. Gold, pale amber in color, there was a light aroma of hops and malt. Light in body with a slightly sweet flavor but, there was enough flavor from the hops and orange peel to balance the sweetness from the corn and sorghum. Overall not a great beer but well made and very drinkable, definately ine that I would buy again as session beer to accompany a BBQ or pizza on a hot day.

Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Not much aroma and what’s there is akin to soggy Corn Chex with some light floral hops. Drinkable, but not enough to balance the sweetness. They don’t appear to be trying too hard to make this interesting.

Piss gold with a light haze. Slightly sour-ciderish. Not horrible but not my thing. Uses sorghum for fermentable sugar to be gluten free.
