There's a joke that says that gluten is another word for flavor and gluten free means it tastes bad. I actually had no idea this was gluten free and anticipated reviewing this highly despite the finding.

Very coppery in appearance the head was sort of fizzy and built well but soon collapsed with no lacing or so much as a bubble.

The scent was strong barley with some roasted grain and nuttiness. No real hop scent to speak of.

This has a deeply satisfying and robust barley, bran and nut flavor. Touches of roasted and toasted grains settle well with the pronounced barley flavor. There is a hint of hops at the very end that holds piney through the aftertaste and adds authenticity to this Pale Ale. The feel is robust and flavorful but also crisp and refreshing.

Poured from a bottle into a Perfect Pint:

A=Honey colored, very slight cloudiness, and a two finger head that lasted well over a minute...I found it inviting.

S=Sweet, citrusy--lemon and orange--but not artificial...very appealing.

T=Definite sweet butter flavor, with citrus and herbal notes--particularly peach. A bit more hops than others also dominated the taste.

M=Above average body with modest carbonation...smoothness and creaminess offset by heavier body and herbal hop notes...not a session beer.

O=A decent beer that might pair well with barbecued meats or saltier foods...a bit too sweet for me to drink on a regular basis, but worth trying if you haven't found a gluten-free beer that suits your taste.

Not sure why this wound up in a recent mixed six.

Dark saturated orange, compact layer of soapy foam that remains for a good while. Some nice lacing around the edges, copious trails of rising carbonation.

Aromas of mild dried orange peel, some sweetness.

Tastes a bit dull but like a pale ale, some hoppy bitterness and bread yeast flavors, a little bit slick in feel. Dull with no bite, slight bitterness again in the finish. Overall passable if you're on a gluten-free diet, but sorely lacking as a Pale Ale.

In a land of cider-esque GF "beer", I have to say it's one of the best that I've tried. It actually tastes like beer! Lovely amber color, nice head, decent mouthfeel, really smooth finish. Drank it with food (tamari and sesame glazed salmon) and it was a very nice accompaniment. This will be a staple in my household for sure.
