2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-amber color with a small creamy/soapy orange-beige head .The aroma was tangy caramel, nut, fruity hops and citrus. The flavor was bitter and tart pine, grapefruit and a bit of caramel. Medium length bitter and dry pine and grapefruit. Medium body. Eh.

Well, I didnít know that this was gluten free so thatís pretty good start. Looks the part, the aroma is a pretty balanced mixture of hops and malt. This goes down pretty smooth, and for a gluten free beer is a quite reasonable price. May be the best of the gluten frees Iíve had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is hoppy with pine and citrus and well balanced by sweet grains. The appearance is light copper with a foamy head. The taste is hoppy and malty. The palate is smooth. Overall hands down the best gluten free beer I have had. I could drink this every day.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle, bottled May 10, 2012. Clear amber color, with a nice thin foamy khaki head. Some loose reaches of lace. Authentic pale ale taste. Crisp lighter carbonation, dry texture. Mild bitter taste. Crisp english-style toasty malt and hop balance - if given blind, I would just think this was an light-flavored english style pale ale, but wouldnít guess that itís gluten-free. Impressive, but somehow, still not as drinkable as refreshing as normal beers. I actually preferred the Omission lager (tried both side-by-side).

Pours deep gold into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Caramel aromas. Soft with sweet caramel upfront turning to flowery marshmallow before the mild earthy bitter abrupt finish.

Pours a vibrant clean golden amber with one to two fingers of foamy off white head. Nose is nice, citrus rind with some pine resin and fresh cut grass with a touch of bread. Dry and light bodied with a peppery finish and citrus rind bitterness. Light caramel sweetness.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pretty standard APA aroma - lightly sweet, a little grapefruit zest, you all know the drill. Somehow the aroma gave me the impression that I get from fresh fish (though it didnít smell like fish) - a background vapor that you canít quite smell but can feel in your nostrils. Good label. Clear, bright and brassy medium orange brew with a small, thin lacing head. Not sweet. The hops donít produce flavor so much as they simply bitter the brew. Acidic, medium body, long bitter finish. Most of the gluten free beers that Iíve had have just been plain foul. This is OK. Iím not sure, exactly what gluten is, but I think itís synonymous with "flavor". Letís stop the senseless discrimination against gluten, and hope for a quick cure to sprue so that grain better used as porridge doesnít get turned into gluten-free beer. New Leaf Market, over there by the girls with the hairy legs and the dude with the Zac Brown knit beanie.
