Food Pairings The easy drinking nature of Tread Lightly Ale pairs well with light and refreshing food. Try: mild seafood dishes such as shrimp scampi or pan seared scallops; a beautiful salad with produce fresh from the Farmer’s Market; and yes, dessert! Think a lemon custard tart.

New Planet Tread Lightly Ale is fermented from grains containing gluten and crafted to remove gluten. The gluten content of this product cannot be verified and this product may contain gluten.

NOTE: Up until mid 2013, Tread Lightly was the name of what’s today known as Blonde Ale. The name was reintroduced for a new beer in Fall 2015.

Not too bad. Some what of a wheat ale. Some lighter fruit flavor. It is sessionable. Crips, carbonated. Sweet.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 9/3/2015. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy pale golden yellow color, with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, floral, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, floral, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, floral, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carnation and body; with a very smooth, moderately grainy/creamy, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a nice American blonde ale. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast flavors; very smooth, refreshing, and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable and spot on blonde ale offering; especially for being gluten reduced.

Pedestrian with your obligatory frosty mountains - marketed as Tread Lightly. Misty, honey blonde with an off white head. Powdery, slightly tangy, malty aroma. On the verge of being sour, it’s got some vegetal (grassy, leafy) notes over a lemony backdrop. Slightly mineral. Astringent wisps sometimes. There just wasn’t anything here that would make me ever want another one. New Leaf Market.
