3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Carrot orange, not a lot of head, but a surprising amount of lace. Looks like any old pale ale. Decent body; good thickness.
Okay so the aroma: prickly, sharp malts; a little bitter but also a tad flowery. The malt isnít exactly sugary, but it is bready and dry: biscuity. Pleasant enough.
Flavor is primarily hops, the woody, east coast kind. The malt is definitely different: itís kind of like cardboard, but not the "off" wet cardboard you get in some beers. It has an aftertaste that is very dry. Itís not unpleasant but itís not quite beer-like.
The feel is buttery and slick. Has a decent body to it. As far as G-free beers go, I donít really know if this is one of the good ones or one of the bad ones. But if I had celiac, I could do a lot worse.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber with a solid 1" ivory head, bands and swirls of lace. Taste is lightly carameled malt that eases through the palate to a finish that features both citrus hops and edgy carbonation. Not complicated, but agreeable and light in the stomach.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not bad at all for a gluten-free beer. The pour produced a clear golden bronze body with the slenderest (yet sustained) white head. The aroma is hops, pink and yellow grapefruit with a dash or two of lemon zest. The taste follows suit, citrus with just a dab of "malty" sweetness. It finishes fairly dry with a moderate zesty bitterness. Iíd dink this one again.

Brewed 6/5/14. Nose nondescript, some hoppy profile. Looks cloudy and not as pale as expected. Not as hoppy as expected. Decent balance to the malt.

Not a big fan of this one. Itís odd...I think the hoppy styles are the ones that can forgo the gluten the best as itís easire to just cover up that deficiency with hops, but most of the ones i had just donít get it right. This is no exception. The hops are present, but fairly bland, and a little too sweet/malt heavy. Neither are beers Iíd go back for."

Bottled. Burnt orange with a moderate stark-white head. Mild grapefruit rind, slight peach flesh and rich caramels dominate the nose. Toasty malt flavor with mild grassy hops atop. More dried grasses and straw in the finish, alongside a bit of soft leather. Lacking in the hop department. Thanks to Narnad for the bottle.

Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber with a thin tan head. Aroma is slight caramel and floral. Flavor is slight toffee and some hop bitterness. Really pretty good for a gluten free and not bay anyways.

From a bottle. Pours hazy reddish copper with a foamy off white head and decent lacing. Tastes like bitter hops, toast, rice, corn. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like hops, grass, straw, toast.
