Leave it to a Portland, OR brewery to make a Gluten-Free Pale Ale. Good idea, good beer, better than your normal Pale Ale.

Bottle- Pours a clear copper color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Mild aroma of malt sweetness some citrus and and spice. Fairly mild flavor of malt sweetness and some citrus. Muted bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body, smooth and clean. Seems to be lacking something, not bad but seems to be bland. Decent drinker, not bad for the type of beer that it is.

12 oz single from Trader Joes ,Salem OR.
Nice clear golden ale with a good sized frothy white head.
Aroma mostly floral/grassy hop sweet shortbread malt aromas.
Taste is a combination of the sweet malt and floral hop its OK but missing a whole lot of substance ( i guess gluten is good for something)
Its not bad and rather drinkable yet pretty uninspired.
But had i celiacs disease this would be nice.

12oz bottle. Pours pale amber with a white head. This is the first gluten free beer I’ve tasted that actually tastes like beer.

Had no idea this was gluten free when I bought it - bought as a single - nothing on the label states as such - oh well - clear orange, with a rather thick lace and some fine suspended particulate - nose of earthy hops and tropical fruit, a bit of honeyish sweetness - flavor is a bit sweet up front, but it dries out as the hops come to the fore, bringing notes of tropical fruit, peppery character - a bit of a biscuit note and ginger on the tail end - surprisingly good for a gluten free beer.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a semi-clear amber with a small off-white head, and a good lacing.
Smells of caramel, malt, touch of citrus, and hops.
Taste is smooth, caramel, hops, and some citrus. Ends a little smooth creamy. Overall not bad but needs a little more bitterness.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large frothy off-white creamy head. Good head retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of spicy, herbal hops with toasted, caramel malts. The taste is floral, herbal, green hops with caramel malts. Medium bodied, some residual sweetness. Nice gluten free beer.

bottle. No question, this is the best gluten free beer I’ve ever had. Tastes like a normal pale ale, and a good one at that. Nice hoppy bite.
