Poured into a half tulip.

A: Pours dark amber brown, very clear, with nice head and decent retention.

S: Light sweet smell (slightly apple cider-ish), with some spicy/coriander type notes and light hops.

T: First touch on the palate is light with not much taste, but quickly builds to a nice sweet caramel/light apple flavour, with a decent amount of hops finishing it off for the style.

M: Light carbonation, light body where you hardly notice the 7% ABV

O: Was quickly browsing for new beers and was attracted to this one so picked it up. Only noticed upon arrival at home that it was a gluten free beer. Having never tried yet a gluten free beer, but knowing many people who have to limit their gluten I was intrigued. If I wouldn't have looked twice at the label you couldn't have told me this was a gluten free beer. The beer is quite flavourful with a decent amount of hops and the different grains, while lacking the body of traditional malts, gives it a different complexity that is worth trying, regardless of whatever diet you're on. Is this the best example of a Brown Ale, of course not, but would I have it again, sure, and would I recommend this to people who have shied away from regular beers, definitely!

Heard a lot about this beer from BSG so I had to give it a shot.

The beer is dark brown and pours a nice think head leaving hardly any lacing.

Smell is slightly hoppy and quite earthy.

I like what they did here with the different cereals and hops used. A sip leaves you with a slight caramel taste in your mouth.

As the rest of the gluten free beers, it lacks in body.

This is a nice example of a gluten free beer and it's good to know that such beers are out there for people that need it. BSG probably have the better of the gluten free beers that iv'e had so far.

Go out there, give it a try and remember it won't be as thick and full bodied as a DIPA but still refreshing and enjoyable none the less.

Bottle: Poured a light brown color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of earthy and resin hops is quite dominant with light spicy malt notes. Taste is dominated by earthy and resin notes of hops with a particular malt bill that is somewhat spicy and grainy. Body is a bit light with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Good but does end up showing lighter malt bill then non-gluten free beer would usually have. I can see this being very enjoyable if you have gluten related issue.
