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.

This is not hop-forward. If anything positive, I like the appearance: fair lacing, moderate head, and a nice translucent hue with random globules. I want to like it because it seems that it ought to be good. The texture is a bit oily. The hops are old. Itís like a mediocre honey ale, which is weird because I did get a note of burnt coffee so I donít know what the hell is honestly going on here.

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.

A decent APA -- excellent for a gluten-free. Aroma is sweet and citrusy. Taste is grapefruit and pine with a lightly bitter finish.

Bottle served in a shaker. Pours clear orange-amber with a short head. Good retention and lace. An upgrade from the lager. Still that soft aroma persists. A bit floral and a bit caramel. Medium body, a good balance of malt and hops through the middle, and a light hoppy finish. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark Amber appearance. Weak Aroma. There is a mild hop bite and a little tanginess to the beer, but it is very short-lived with no aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with nice white head. Grainy, hay, slightly hoppy aroma. Caramel, grainy, some piney hop flavors. Not great, but probably one of the better gluten free beers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2012 Nice glowing copper color with short head,quickly gone ,slight lacing.
Mild hop nose ripe fruit and ??? and some sweet carmel notes.Slight nutty. Fairly mild aroma but yet nice. Maybe a slight bit of yeast/yeast ester.
Taste is pretty good,its pretty hoppy,slickish-smooth, some toast/breadiness, mostlycaramel-with light nutty notes. Medium fullish body. Almost like an amber kind of. Pretty malty for a pale ale. Some sweet stickyness in finish,well balanced by good hop flavor and a smooth and mellow kind of peppery/pine bittering. Clean finish. A little on the mild side of bittering in the average pale ale but very sessionable. Pretty ok with having 5 more of these to randomly have but wouldnt really go out and get another 6er of it that soon. Very good for a minimal gluten beer.

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.
