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 didn’t smell like fish) - a background vapor that you can’t 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 don’t produce flavor so much as they simply bitter the brew. Acidic, medium body, long bitter finish. Most of the gluten free beers that I’ve had have just been plain foul. This is OK. I’m not sure, exactly what gluten is, but I think it’s synonymous with "flavor". Let’s stop the senseless discrimination against gluten, and hope for a quick cure to sprue so that grain better used as porridge doesn’t 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.

The taste is fairly light, benign. A bit of donut. Grass, some lemon Light, watery body. Caramel malt. Fine carbonation. Overall, there’s not too much to it.

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.
