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.

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

Bottle from backlog notes 2012. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, grainy yet different, apples, cereal malts, very light hop character, just bland with sweet character. Glutenfree is nnot something I have enjoyed to this point.

Backlog rating on 9-19-2012 (Bottle) The appearance is a small semi-fizzy white head, transparent pale yellow body, no carbonation observed, and no lacing. The aroma is corn and sweet. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is light bodied. This beer is not my kind of beer. It lacks so much in all categories. Obviously, it does not leave me to recommend or desire this beer again.

Bottle. Terrible beer. Gold color with a small head. Metallic aroma with funk. Taste is awful. Way too funky.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Sweet grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Drinkable, but different.

This beer has a light golden color with a nice foamy head. The taste consists of a citrus and is lightly sweet. However, like the rest of the beers they make it has a strong metallic after taste.

Headbanger (3326) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2014
12oz bottle 4/17/14 (Meijer)-38° in Shaker-Pours a a clear golden with a big white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of grains, grass, and sweetness. Taste of sourness, grains, and malt. This light bodied brew is not the best tasting. Not sure of the taste because of the gluten free or bad beer.

patrick767 (3584) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 30, 2014
bottle - Pours clear gold with minimal head. It has a mild, sugary aroma. The flavor is sweet and basically tastes like sugar with some corn and maybe a hint of citrus. Meh. Why? Just why? Stop the madness.

EithCubes (5015) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle. Nose is sweet and stale, floral and non-barley skunky. Pours very bright, clear golden with a loud fizzy bright white head. Taste is semi-sweet and almost artificial with a bracing acidic tang, no bitterness. The sourness will keep a lot away, but I don’t mind it. There’s some good citrus buried amid all the strange corn and sorghum flavors, and there’s a high-octane floral content that always reminds me of heavy fusels, though there are none. A nice cider character takes hold with volume. Medium-full body, a little slimy, oily. Count me among those who are able to bear this one; I even find it bright and refreshing, and can enjoy it. But might want to wait until the aggressive fizz/head dies out, this needs as much balancing softness as it can get.

HuskerTan (516) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. A- Citrus, grains. A- Yellow color, clear liquid, minimal head. T- Unbalanced, skunky, watery. P- Light body, average texture, high carbonation, skunky finish. O- No way can this beer taste as bad as it does, but yet it really is that bad. There is nothing good to say about this so I will leave it at that.
