Gold pour, white head. Not a good beer to be honest. I guess its ok when you consider what it is...maybe. Aroma of grains, honey and spent hops. Flavor is malty, old hops...meh.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tasted on 7/13/12 from a 12oz bottle. Pours clear amber with an average white head that slowly recedes to a thin layer of lace, leaving a bit of lacing on the inside of the glass. The nose is sweet caramel and cereal with just a hint, a very light hint, of aromatic hops. The flavor is a bit more bitter with the hops coming through more than on the nose, and the caramel and cereal malt lightly sweet. The body is medium with thin, but stinging carbonation, and a short caramel malt and lightly bitter hops finish.

Bottle from Blue Dog. Pours orangy copper with 2-finger frothy well-retained head. Nose is orange marmalade, caramel malt, peppery hops. Tastes very hoppy, with a genuine caramel malt flavor, and some resiny, black peppery finishing flavors.

Had no idea this was gluten free when I bought it - bought as a single - nothing on the label states as such - oh well - clear orange, with a rather thick lace and some fine suspended particulate - nose of earthy hops and tropical fruit, a bit of honeyish sweetness - flavor is a bit sweet up front, but it dries out as the hops come to the fore, bringing notes of tropical fruit, peppery character - a bit of a biscuit note and ginger on the tail end - surprisingly good for a gluten free beer.

Hey now! This is the real deal. I’d drink this brew any day. Excellent hop presence with a solid malt foundation. Good head retention and carbonation. Nice job guys.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It poured an orange color with a white head. The aroma was of floral hops. The taste was similar, not bad for a gluten free ale. This is the best gluten free beer I have tasted.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz single from Trader Joes ,Salem OR.
Nice clear golden ale with a good sized frothy white head.
Aroma mostly floral/grassy hop sweet shortbread malt aromas.
Taste is a combination of the sweet malt and floral hop its OK but missing a whole lot of substance ( i guess gluten is good for something)
Its not bad and rather drinkable yet pretty uninspired.
But had i celiacs disease this would be nice.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light clear copper from the bottle with dissipating white head and light lacing. Aroma of west coast hops, characteristic of a pale ale. Taste follows suit, but kind of light. Decent bitter finish and nice mouth. Good beer for what it is; much better than the lager, and what the celiacs disease people need.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle- Pours a clear copper color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Mild aroma of malt sweetness some citrus and and spice. Fairly mild flavor of malt sweetness and some citrus. Muted bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body, smooth and clean. Seems to be lacking something, not bad but seems to be bland. Decent drinker, not bad for the type of beer that it is.
