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

First thing I did after tasting this for the first time is check the sodium levels. I was astonished it has zero sodium. First sip tasted like Alka seltzer. Have to spit after each sip, this beer truly tastes horrid...

RSRIZZO (1871) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2014
12oz bottle (Courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 39°. Color is a bright gold with very bubbly carbonation giving it a loose rocky head. It looks like a glass of ginger ale. Aroma is sweet, like malted sugar and a hint of fruit. It has a light crisp body that feels bubbly. Flavor is sweet with malt and corn, it comes across like unfermented wort. In the after taste the sweet gives a honey like taste and a very faint bitterness that lets a slightly dry feel come out. Overall its very strange, but I kind of like it.

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.

hotstuff (4274) - Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2014
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 (3386) - 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.
