After the failed gluten free beer tasting at The Wine Gourmet last Friday night, I had begged Aaron to put that on tap (get it??? BEER HUMOR!) this weekend. It’s not like I have any pull, but I like to pretend… However, I did get an affirmative from Aaron.. so I was pretty confident we’d have a GF beer to sample on my way home tonight… but you never know…
However, Mike’s email this morning sealed the deal….
This is super exciting for me. And for you… You know why? Because I can share my very blunt opinion of this beer!!! Hooray!
Being the diligent little drinker I am… I went to the google and looked this up when I got home… Here’s a professional beer tasters notes…
This is from Green’s website:
‘Bottle Refermented Blonde Ale’ is a blonde coloured, bottle refermented ale. The characteristic taste and aroma is a result of the specially selected de-glutenised barley malt and hop varieties and is brewed to an age old recipe. Serve Cool
Or from a Beer Blog
Now… drumroll please… here is my unprofessional guzzler notes:
It was warm, but it was a weak tasting beer… Kinda like what i remember of a run of the mill regular beer, but with a really weird after taste… It was super metallic. It seemed a little mildewy. Like I put a piece of tin in my mouth. I would not purchase this one…
Also, my very accommodating husband’s tasting notes:
It was similar to regular beer, until the aftertaste. Like a Miller Lite, or Coors Lite… With a little more complexity, but no real outstanding flavor profile.
The verdict: We did not purchase this one… but did purchase the Endeavor Dubble… Hoping for better results.
