3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2012 Nice glowing copper color with short head,quickly gone ,slight lacing.
Mild hop nose ripe fruit and ??? and some sweet carmel notes.Slight nutty. Fairly mild aroma but yet nice. Maybe a slight bit of yeast/yeast ester.
Taste is pretty good,its pretty hoppy,slickish-smooth, some toast/breadiness, mostlycaramel-with light nutty notes. Medium fullish body. Almost like an amber kind of. Pretty malty for a pale ale. Some sweet stickyness in finish,well balanced by good hop flavor and a smooth and mellow kind of peppery/pine bittering. Clean finish. A little on the mild side of bittering in the average pale ale but very sessionable. Pretty ok with having 5 more of these to randomly have but wouldnt really go out and get another 6er of it that soon. Very good for a minimal gluten beer.

I liked this beer. It had a smooth body with a nice flavor. Sweet malts and enough hops to really balance it out.

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 IPAís.
Good option for gluten intolerant friends (i think my partner will stick to cider though)

Bottle, 33 cl. Clear golden with a decent white head. Fruity hoppy and smooth caramely nose. Flavor is toasted and caramel medium sweet malty with notes of red berries, grapefruity hops, citrus. Medium bitter finish. High drinkabillity. If I had problems with gluten, Iíd drink this one on a hot summers day.

Nice golden color, just small head. Aroma is floral and citrus hops, a tough of caramel. Lightly bitter. Some pine, citrus, floral tastes, along with a toasted malt. Finish has an unusual taste, slightly metallic., but not unpleasant.
Very drinkable. Looking forward to trying their IPA.

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 Iíve had to date. We need more in the UK!!

12 oz bottle from New Seasons - Pours orange with a bubbly white head. Bubbles cling to the side of the glass. NIce floral hops aroma. Definite Cascade (I know that because itís in the description). It has a little more grainy flavor than a normal beer, but I really like this. Iíd certainly get more.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2012 12 oz bottle. I picked this up today because it seemed interesting. I had no idea what it was. The Widmer logo is on it, but itís faded and hard to see on the label. Itís like the brewers were purposely trying to distance this from their normal lineup. The slogan on the label "It isnít just what we took out, itís what we left in" intrigued me. I figured it was either gluten-free, alcohol-free, or something else entirely. It certainly doesnít say what it is on the label. Once I got to researching it, I realized it was indeed gluten-free. Anyway, aroma consists of piney hops and bready malt and doesnít smell rancid like most gluten-free beers. That being said, itís not particularly memorable for your average APA. It pours hazy orange with a medium collapsing off-white head that leaves some lace. Taste is remarkably good for a gluten-free beer, but itís completely average for an American Pale Ale. It starts out lightly sweet and finishes with a little bitterness. Carbonation is minute and the body is medium to thin. Itís very smooth and drinkable. The best thing about this beer is that it will be the first thing I reach for if I ever develop an allergy to gluten.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Light citric hops, pale malts, and a light sweetness. One of the better gluten free beers Iíve tried.
