2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly hazy gold body with a tall frothy mostly whit head.
Light floral hop aroma with sweet corn syrup.
Strange flavor that goes from sweet to bitter.
Full bodied, could be lighter for my tastes in this style.
This might be a pretty good Gluten Free beer, average otherwise.

Bottle, 33 cl. Clear golden with a decent white head. Fruity hoppy and smooth caramely nose. Flavor is toasted and caramel medium sweet malty with notes of red berries, grapefruity hops, citrus. Medium bitter finish. High drinkabillity. If I had problems with gluten, I’d drink this one on a hot summers day.

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice golden amber to bronzed brown color. There was a nice one and a half fingered white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute and left a decent amount of spider web lacing. Nice look!
The smell had a nice strong hoppy spicy to somewhat citrusy sweet profile.
The taste was semi-sweet but carried a decent bitter hoppiness about it. There was a sticky sweet citrusy to caramel aftertaste and a light yet quick dry finish.
On the palate, it sat about a light to medium and showed a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the APA style and it still had a decent sharpness invading my mouth and tongue.
Overall, for the most part, I’d say this was a nice APA made as a gluten-free. If I couldn’t have wheat products for the rest of my life, I’d definitely be drinking this with no problems whatsoever.

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

Meh....bought this bottle because I had never heard of it. Even before I started reading about it I could tell it was gluten free. Sorry for those of you who have to drink this. To be honest, this was actually a lot better than most of the beers in this category. Aroma was very weak. Could pick out some sort of ginger ale aroma. That’s it. Pour was a nice enough cloudy medium gold with a white ring for a head. Taste was drinkable. Thick and almost oily, caramel is the main flavor here. Not much of a hop profile. Nice carbonation.

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.
