RB Odense Official February tasting. Golden with a small white head. Nice citrus hoppy aroma with a touch of biscuit-y malt. Dry and hoppy flavour with citrus and pine on a somewhat thin malt backbone

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Beautiful floral aroma mixing with citrus and heavy caramel and hop spiciness. Light wood, but more about that doughy caramel (which reminds me of Lagunitas every time, without fail). Bright but hazy body with a short off-white head. Taste is moderately dry (there’s some sweetness to start but it’s not too big), fullish body in heft, big Centennial-type woodiness with a little paper-/cat-scratch ala Simcoe -- hard to believe this is straight Cascade considering the variety they’re getting from the hops here. Sticky caramel, malty and not grainy, clean with light APA-level bitterness. I like this more than its lagery sister, and man, the two have opened my eyes to just how far commercial gluten-free brewing has come in the past few years.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light amber with a big frothy head. Aromas of malty caramel, piney hops, and slight toffee. Flavors of light pine hops, light caramel, and just a hint of hay/grain. Lightly sweet and mildly bitter. Leaves just a light corn/grain/bitter aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden pour, not the greatest looking. Strong piney hop scent. Odd taste, haven’t had anything quite like it before, kind of like a sweet IPA, mild on both counts, with a weird aftertaste I can’t quite place. Is that from the absence of gluten? I have no idea. I’m craving a bagel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange red color with thin white lacing. Citrus and slight earthy hop aroma. Clean palate with some fresh hop notes. Thinner palate with nice citrus appeal. For a de-glutenized beer I can really stand behind this pale ale. It might lack a little body but with no grain basis this is understandable. If I was unable to consume delicious bread I would certainly be able to turn my palate onto this ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pretty clear amber with a fairly thick and fluffy, if not too persistent, off-white head. Aroma is not strong, but invites with malty and fruity notes. Malty flavor has a strong woody hoppy note and a fruity undertone, just a little sweetness. Smooth texture has average thickness and little fizz. For a gluten free beer, not too bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Didn't know what to expect with this...but except for one little unexplained weird little post initial flavor this is a pretty solid pale ale period...decent aroma ...balanced leaning toward the hop side of things...pretty deep orange color...not bad..it does lack that crisp freshness that leaves you wanting more...omission was worth it especially for those non-gluts among us
