2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at some burger joint in Naples. The pour’s light gold with a small head. The nose is lemon cake, some orange peel, a bit of candy and grass. Fairly faint aromas. The taste is fairly light, benign. A bit of donut. Grass, some lemon Light, watery body. Caramel malt. Fine carbonation. Overall, there’s not too much to it.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with orange highlights and a tall, cream head. Nose is definitely hoppy, with equal parts floral and citrus. A lot of hops on the front, but with a weird midpalate that reminds me of soap and burned toast. Finishes long and bitter. It’s barely acceptable.

If only all gluten free beer was this tasty. Pours a hazy orange with white head. Nice juicy citrus and peach aromas. Caramel flavours, with a nice hoppy finish and full mouthfeel. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
So I was cleaning out the garage on this beautiful Easter weekend when my son brought me this beer from my hallowed beer fridge as a surprise work-break. I mention this detail because it was already in the glass when it was given to me and I had no idea that I was tucking into a gluten free beer. And it is a compliment to Widmer brothers that until I examined the bottle long after, I did not know I had been given a gluten free product. As a pale ale, it satisfies quite nicely, with a decent hop bitterness and caramel malts. But as a gluten-free offering, this really is outstanding!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. It has a nice looking amber colored pour with great clarity and a small but long-lasting head. The aroma is sweet, lightly malted, and vaguely fruity like pear or apple. Creamy body. The taste has a malty sweetness and mildly bitter. Nicely done.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured clear, sunsetty orange with a short-lived white head.. just a dusting stuck around. The aroma picked up sweet oranges and floral notes over honey and light biscuity notes.. the hops stood out and were nice. The flavor found honey, sorghum, and a little rice at the core, with fresh grapefruit and light pine bitterness around.. nondeScript residual bitterness stuck on the otherwise slick finish. Light-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. not the best flow to it.. aiight overall.
