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) michaelinwa (656) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 You just know something is not right in the world when you find yourself rating a gluten free beer. But such is life at the moment. My previous view of GF beer has moved from, "Why bother?", to "Thank God for making this available". This looks to be one of the "better" GF beers, so here we go. Golden pour, decent white head that holds on barely long enough, and an aroma that consists of mild hop and...what...is...that...some grainy aroma that reminds me of malt. Itís not bad, just different. Taste is relatively dry, slightly astringent, very grainy. This is not sweet. Finish is moderately bitter and again, grainy. Ok, in the world of beer v.s. no beer, this is actually decent. In the world of "I can drink whatever I want", not so much. That said, Iíve had plenty of pale ales, among other brews, that are substantially less interesting than this. This, at least, has character and flavor, hop taste, a finish that lingers, and a little complexity. Oddly, I dislike most of this brewers other beers, and probably have rated several at about the level or lower. Overall, my new perspective stands, "Thank God this is available". This will keep me from cheating until real beer is back up for grabs. JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2013
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. jimmie65 (330) - Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2013
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. Beese (2669) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2013
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. edgallow (4154) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 16, 2012
12 oz bottle pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, citrus and pine. Taste is of the malt, yeast and a nice bitterness.
