3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. No question, this is the best gluten free beer Iíve ever had. Tastes like a normal pale ale, and a good one at that. Nice hoppy bite.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate light tan head on there. Maltier than I prefer, the nose has more caramel and bread notes than hops, though I can get a bit of grass. Taste is a bit bitter, but has the taste of an amber 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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle courtesy Fratto. Pours a clear amber orange color with a foamy head. Aroma is weak. Dry notes. Some buttery notes. Flavor is dry grains, light in flavor with maybe a touch of hoppy bitterness. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tarnished orange pour with small white head ring and lots of small floaties. Caramel, biscuit, clean citrus and some foresty bitterness for balance. Very surprisingly NOT bad. I would not have guessed this was gluten free. Scores extra points for the fact that this a BEER that just happens to be a gluten-free beverage, instead of the other way around.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
SLightly hazy copper color. 1.5 inch head holds at 1/4" + and has a dirty white color. Lacing is thin but abundant. Aroma is very nice with floral hoppiness and earthiness. It has a nice beer bite and tastes like good bitter hops with a cream ale backend. You canít tell this beer is gluten free. Itís that good. To all you Widmer haters out there... grow up. Drifter, Dead Lift and now this... People with a gluten allergy can now enjoy a very hoppy pale ale thatís delicious... Truly amazing.

Poured by the Widmer founder himself...and you could tell just how proud he was of this. Interesting labeling problems. Now, as for the beer, if youíve had sorghum beers before, you know how much of an accomplishment it is to have something that is in the ballpark of a good APA, yet not have any gluten. A bit on the light side of the hopping spectrum, but still colorful. (bottle at the Ale Jail backyard beer festival, 2012)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount into a wine glass, mostly spilled :( Golden amber and clear appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of floral hops, herbs, pale malts and light fruit. Similar flavor, hoppy mild bitterness and light sweetness with a touch caramel. Smooth, crisp, pretty easy to drink.
