Bottle from Marks & Spencer, Halifax. Amber with a small head. Has a nice pale ale texture with a light fruitiness. PapaVillum (956) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2017
Kobberfarvet og lettere ufiltreret APA aka American Pale Ale med større offwhite skumtop, som langsomt svinder til først snelandskab og dernæst et par mm tykkelse. Let perlende i glasset.
Ganske svag aroma med frugtnoter af blodappelsin, en smule citrus og lidt korn.
Dejlig frugt-domineret smag med noter af appelsin og en ganske bitter afslutning. En let Pale Ale, tillige i konsistensen, med en middel sødme og lille til middel bitterhed.
En forholdsvis let krop og en vandet til olieret konsistens. En blød mundfølelse qua en let karbonering samt en bitter næsten besk finish. Eftersmagen er kort.
Overall: Vi er i den lette afdeling for lette sommerøl med denne Ale. Meget let drikkelig og glutenfri, som ikke skader nogen.
355 ml, flaske, 5.8 % ABV, BB: 11/11/17, købt i Netto på Roskildevej i Valby.

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours copper with a light beige head. Aroma seems lightly floral with a touch of citrus. Getting something that’s more hint of cola than malt. About medium body. Flavor is nicely hoppy. Finishes pretty dry and nicely bitter. As in most gluten frees there is something missing that’s needed to carry the hop. That said, this may be the best American gluten free I’ve ever had. It doesn’t stand near Greens Endeavor. The problem with gluten free is that light flavor won’t cut it. Wonder how a gluten free IS would turn out? EDIT: Guess it does stand near Endeavor. Gave them the same ratings. Still think the more flavor the better tasting the gluten free. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle. Copper color with suspended floaties, thin head. Powerful hop aroma, medium body, bitter taste and finish. Decent pale ale with flavor. Nuffield (4189) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Poured by the Widmer founder himself...and you could tell just how proud he was of this. Interesting labeling problems. Now, as for the beer, if you’ve had sorghum beers before, you know how much of an accomplishment it is to have something that is in the ballpark of a good APA, yet not have any gluten. A bit on the light side of the hopping spectrum, but still colorful. (bottle at the Ale Jail backyard beer festival, 2012)

Nice light caramel coloured body with an orange glow and a thin, one centimetre tall light tan head. Aroma of light hops with some citrus and herbal notes very noticeable with a little malt smell and a touch of alcohol and cardboard. Light-bodied; Sharp herbal and lightly earthy hop notes show up front with a good malt backbone (somehow without glutens) behind and a bitterness showing well from the hops. Aftertaste is nice with the bitterness very noticeable, a touch of alcohol, but the good news is that you don’t really miss the malt or glutens. Overall, a rather surprisingly good and true-to-style beer considering what it could be without the full malt notes. If you have celiac disease, this one is definitely one worth trying and enjoying all the time - otherwise, it’s not a bad choice to sample if you like APAs. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 24-October-2012 for US$1.79 sampled at home in Washington on 02-November-2012. heemer77 (5360) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 6, 2012
A deep amber to copper colored brew with a thin light khaki head. The nose has some musk and wood. There is also some toffee. The taste is a fairly dry woody character. There is also some note of the musk and wood. A nice dry pale ale style brew that only lacks a little bit of the caramel flavor of a regular pale ale. This is easily the best gluten free beer I have tried. DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Hazy orange red color with thin white lacing. Citrus and slight earthy hop aroma. Clean palate with some fresh hop notes. Thinner palate with nice citrus appeal. For a de-glutenized beer I can really stand behind this pale ale. It might lack a little body but with no grain basis this is understandable. If I was unable to consume delicious bread I would certainly be able to turn my palate onto this ale. VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Clear golden pour, not the greatest looking. Strong piney hop scent. Odd taste, haven’t had anything quite like it before, kind of like a sweet IPA, mild on both counts, with a weird aftertaste I can’t quite place. Is that from the absence of gluten? I have no idea. I’m craving a bagel. MrBeerFanatic (1067) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Pours a light amber with a big frothy head. Aromas of malty caramel, piney hops, and slight toffee. Flavors of light pine hops, light caramel, and just a hint of hay/grain. Lightly sweet and mildly bitter. Leaves just a light corn/grain/bitter aftertaste.
