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.

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.

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.

Aroma is grains, mild sweetness and the expected sorghum funk, although milder than expected. The flavor is malts, fruit/berries/strawberries, mild citrus and a tart finish. Better than expected, the sorghum was thankfully muted.

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 at the State Store: yes it has come to this, we get a new beer into the state and it is a gluten free one! Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. A sweet apple nose with some candies. The flavor is dry, fizzy, lots of apples, some light copper. Decent.

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.

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.
