2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

33cl bottle @Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. Nice fruity pale ale. Vegetable aromas, caramel, malty. Pours hazy amber, some white head and lacing. Lacks some more body.

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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a copper color with moderate head. Aromas of light biscuity wet malts. Flavors of light carmel malts with only a hint of hops. Not much presence but not offensive.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I would never have guessed it was gluten free. By far, the best one I’ve tried. It has a more red ale quality with a nice malt, caramel base, and a very well balanced hop presence.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. It has a nice looking amber colored pour with great clarity and a small but long-lasting head. The aroma is sweet, lightly malted, and vaguely fruity like pear or apple. Creamy body. The taste has a malty sweetness and mildly bitter. Nicely done.

Unbelievably gluten free. Aroma and flavor of a basic pale ale. Caramel malts, some pine and citrus hops. Finishes clean and light but flavorful. Not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served from bottle at Omission event at FatPour Tapworks. Yes, I’ve notched it up a bit for being "good" as a glutoen-free beer goes. Color is a little more brown than pale ale copper in its glass. Still exhibits a nice malty and bitter hop smell. Taste is pretty forward on malts, with a basic pale ale hop background. Some orangey notes thread themselves in as I travel further down the glass. Not an "extreme" pale ale, but it starts to pick up some hop zing as it warms. Probably just being a little cautious, since the malts are modified for the GF process. Then again, there’s almost a fresh cut hop taste at the finish.
