2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hmmm....the problem with gluten-free beers is that they are usually garbage. This is probably one of the better beers in this variety, but it still lacks something desirable. Finish doesn’t hold up; doesn’t have a body! Okay offering.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a decent pale ale. For people that are gluten-free, they need to be drinking this and the Omission Lager, because they taste like real beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light amber with a big frothy head. Aromas of malty caramel, piney hops, and slight toffee. Flavors of light pine hops, light caramel, and just a hint of hay/grain. Lightly sweet and mildly bitter. Leaves just a light corn/grain/bitter aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a spotted lacing small white frothy head. Aroma is quite mild with caramel, toasted malt, pine, citrus, flowery an bread. Taste is light+ sweet and bitter. Body is light+, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
Finishes mild with caramel and a little bread. Low on hops for an APA, but quite drinkable anyway.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice copper with a one inch beige head. Taste is of malt, caramel, grass and hops. Similar aroma. Has a mostly full body with a bitter and dry finish. Easy to drink and rather surprising that it is gluten free.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty light hop aroma. Mostly sweet cracker on the aroma. Nice clear amber with an off-white head that is fleeting but remains on the collar. Very malt forward with slight hop bittering at the end. Malt is melted caramel. Slight floral hop flavor.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. Clean sweet malt aroma. Poured clear amber with a quick fizzy head. Light body with average carbonation. Flavour is grainy with pale malt and finishes with a slight herbal hop dryness. Not bad for gluten free.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Great British Beer Festival 2013. Poured a clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus hops and some bready malt. Flavours of grain, golden syrup and pine. Finishes with a mixture of sweet toffee and bitter hop resin. Not quite as good as the IPA, but probably the best gluten free beers I’ve had to date. We need more in the UK!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark Golden/Amber Pour clear with moderate carbonation. Thin white head.
Nose is hoppy, mild citrusy aromatics. Easy drinking pale. Light body. Clean bitter finish. Totally drinkable for the GF catagory but pales in comparison to standard pales and IPA’s.
Good option for gluten intolerant friends (i think my partner will stick to cider though)
