New Planet Tread Lightly Ale

New Planet is a line of gluten free beers brewed for New Planet by the Fort Collins Brewery of Fort Collins, Colorado.  A portion of the profits from the beer goes to trail restoration.

This 5.0% ABV beer is brewed with water, sorghum, corn extract, orange peel, hops and yeast.  The beer pours golden in color, crystal clear, with a small head of white foam.  The aroma is like almond pastry with light orange peel.  The taste follows the aroma, ends on a strange tart note and leaves an unpleasant bitterness and aftertaste. 

I have tried several gluten free beers and the only one I found drinkable was St. Peter's Sorghum beer.
