3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

12oz bottle. Pours pale amber with a white head. This is the first gluten free beer I’ve tasted that actually tastes like beer.

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.

Hmmm....the problem with gluten-free beers is that they are usually garbage. This is probably one of the better beers in this variety, but it still lacks something desirable. Finish doesn’t hold up; doesn’t have a body! Okay offering.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
6/24/12. 12oz bottle. Slightly hazed light amber pour with a small khaki head that laces surprisingly well. Plain aroma with bits of tea and earthy hop presence. Touches of apple and caramel with a slightly bitter hoppy presence and a lingering slight chemical aspect. This is not nearly as much a disaster as the lager.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty light hop aroma. Mostly sweet cracker on the aroma. Nice clear amber with an off-white head that is fleeting but remains on the collar. Very malt forward with slight hop bittering at the end. Malt is melted caramel. Slight floral hop flavor.
