1.61/5  rDev -52.5%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 1.5

Poured a clean amber color with a very thin white soap ring head.

The nose has a light sweet caramel malt quality to it.

Wow is this bad, cloyingly sweet up front, no hop flavor other than some astringent bitterness in the finish. This beer has absolutely no middle, just badly sweet right to badly astringent. Just bad.

Watery and thin mouthfeel.

I'm sure its tough to make a good gluten free pale, but this is terrible, especially being a pale ale, if they used good hops of enough abundance they could mask the awful gluten free malt bill, but they did a poor job at both ends of the spectrum on this.

Texas

2.63/5  rDev -22.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

5.8% ABV confirmed. 12 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a nonical pint glass in me gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live. Expectations are below average given the brewery and the fact that it's gluten free.

Served straight from the refrigerator Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a two finger thin head of no cream but of average retention. Body colour is a clear pale copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Floral hops, biscuit malt, and light toasted malt. Very simple. An average strength arma.

T: Clean malts, floral hops, and clean barley. Brutally simple and not all that effective. Balanced, but there isn't much to balance. Lacks flavour. Bland and boring.

Mf: Predictably smooth and wet, with generic thickness and slight overcarbonation. Doesn't complement the flavour profile all that well.

Dr: Drinkable but underwhelming. A middling pedestrian effort from Widmer, but then I've come to expect that. Hides its ABV well. Meh. For a gluten beer, it could be worse.

C-

---

Truncated additional notes as of 09/13/13:

A: Decent head. 3-4 fingers wide. Beige colour. Decent creaminess/thickness.

Body colour is a clear copper of average vibrance. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Translucent. Transparent.

Sm: Pale malts. Pilsner malts. Clean barley. Minimal floral hop character. No yeast/alcohol is detectable. Below average strength.

T: Pale malts. Caramalt. Pilsner malts. Floral hops.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Slightly overcarbonated.

Dr: Drinkable but pedestrian. Wouldn't buy again. Decent for a gluten-free beer.

Low C

2.68/5  rDev -20.9%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A- Clear amber, a hint of orange. Head is one and a half fingers thick. Decent retention and a wisp of lacing.
S- Aroma is not all that great. Grainy, a bit of malt, and faint fruity hops.
T- Thin malts. There is some grainy note and just a bit of citrus hops. Very mellow and not much flavor to it.
M- Light, thin body. Carbonation is aggressive.
O- Eh, it's an interesting take on the gluten free beer, but it's only average or below to me.
