COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A foundation of caramel malt is buttressed by a raucously resinous bitterness, as the rioting backdrop of citrus and tropical fruit flow in waves from those twin titans of the US – Centennial and Amarillo. And it also happens to be gluten free. Vagabond Pale Ale is proof that the focal point of beers such as these should be flavour, rather than merely conforming to (or hiding behind) an ideal. It shows, once and for all, that a lack of this single element does not equate to a lack of taste, or body.

pez (8) - - JUL 19, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2019 Copper colored with thin foam. Nicely balanced with a sweet, burnt, note. Lingering aftertaste, albeit a bit on the watery side. Gluten is removed post fermentation ie it's not naturally gluten free. Overall a good GF beer.

caribou43 (1675) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 15, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2019 This bottle is coming from Amstein, trying and judging this product, at home, in Epalinges. The body is copper, clear, normal carbonation, thin and white foam. The malt is a little burnt, dry taste, hop, mineral. It doesn't give the impression to be one of gluten-free, rather pale ale, a bit watery.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2019 Bevuta in bottiglia da 33. Forte presenza di luppolo nell'aroma. Aspetto ambrato, e schiuma poco persistente. Cefgpr

HogTownHarry (7971) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2019 September 7, 2019 - at BrewDog (Camden) - on keg. Gluten-free, eh? Attractive clear amber-gold with a diminishing off-white head. Aroma is pleasantly juicy (citrus) and light, quite fruity with minimal alcohol presence; quite appealing, if a little wan. Taste is a solid pale ale with a little twiggy character vying with the simpler citrus/juice aspect- just okay. Light body, crisp and clean mouthfeel, medium-quite simple finish - a little dry leafy malt and citrus zest in the aftertaste; ultimately pretty damned good for a gluten-free.
