Bottle from Liquor Depot. Goldish pour with a white head. Aroma is surprisingly citrus with sap. Taste is kinda awkward bread with some fruit and light bitterness.

Well thats weird, I didnít notice anything on the label advertising this as gluten free, though it makes sense given the name. Well I would have never guessed because my main impression of this beer was that it was a pretty standard PNW pale ale. Light hop nose was a touch spicy, hints of citrus. Flavor was balanced, a little floral and medium bready malts, balanced finish. Light, unobtrusive, clean. Pretty fair overall pale ale with good balance and no obvious flaws. (if I was a homebrew judge Iíd give it near perfect marks, but this is ratebeer after all)

12oz bottle poured into glass. Omission just canít seem to sell me on any beers they make. This one is like a hoppy amber but with less flavor and character. Very bland and flavorless.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, collapsing, ivory head, with a bit of lacing, over a clear medium amber (SRM 12) body....nose is cereal, light pine, slight citrus peel...taste is mildly sweet, light cereal, hints of bread, light pine, citrus peel bitterness on the finish.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation adds light acid. This is a reasonable attempt at a Pale Ale, but it really is quite simple, and is interesting solely because of the almost gluten free designation. It is quite superior to most gluten free beers, because some parts of the barley was used rather than a substitute grain. BJCP 5/3/10/4/5

12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Copper-orange pour with a thin white head that leaves a ring. Aroma is bready malt and citrus. Tastes are grainy, caramel, pine, honey, dough and resiny citrus. Has a tinny vibe. Eh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanksgiving Day started with turkey at around 1pm, gorged for a little bit and Got to drink, well sip cause it sucked, a single beer. Then the toasts, deserts, clean up, and a little time with the future in-laws. Now, I am hungry again, its too early to go to sleep. So, I need a beer and this is the best we got here. Nice enough label, cool cap, it took me a little while to notice this is a Widmer product. Poured into a large water glass that is akin to a goblet. Pour has a small, fast fading head. Color is dark orange, beer has medium clarity. Aroma is thick slightly sweet malt with a bulky citrus hops. Comes off as you generic brew pub pale ale. Too much malt, like it to be cleaner, hops are just not as crispy and more muddled than I want them to be. Flavor is the same, hops become a bit indistinct and non-centered malts play a large role. You know what I did not get? I would have no idea that this is a gluten free beer, got to give it points for that.

Bottle, I feel they should make this more clear this is a gluten free beer, it could be the account for the mediocre beer, I wasnt big on this one, it has a nice hoppy aroma, it has a strange mouth feel, a ruf finish, overall it is some what drinkable, likely wouldnt have again

Poured from a 12ounce bottle. This is one of the best gluten free beers I have had. A nice hop profile, solid bitterness. The grain character is good as well. There is a soapy off flavor but other then that not bad.
