Today is something different! We are going to do a line up review of a few Gluten Free beers. Whether you have intolerance to gluten or you’ve just given it up for the popular Paleo diet. Keep in mind, there are a lot out there, and always something for everyone! So keep trying them until you find the one that is for you. Also a heads up before we start, do not expect any heavy malt base on any of these beers, they are typically light in body. Here’s a big shoot-out to our gluten-free follower Erin for this lineup, we thank you! Cheers!
Here’s the lineup:
Key Ingredients: Barley, hops, water, and yeast
Unlike most gluten-free beers, this one is made with barley malt. They use a technique to remove gluten. Overall, it’s very smooth and crisp. It’s an easy drinker and very true to the style. This is the best in show and a must try for every gluten free beer drinker.
2. Daura Lager: Highly recommended
Key Ingredients: Gluten-free barley malt
This one uses a similar style to omission to remove gluten. This is a light and weak lager. This is close to the real deal and almost reminds me of Budweiser. Overall, it’s a highly recommended light gluten free beer that would be nice on a hot day.
3. Bard’s Sorghum Malt Beer: Recommended
Key Ingredients: Sorghum, and brown rice.
This one is decent. What stood out was the grain character coming across nicely in the aroma with notes that seem like actual malt. It doesn't have the convincing malt flavor profile. We recommended this one because of the surprising balance and complexity for a gluten free beer.
4. New Planet Blonde Ale: Not recommended
Key Ingredients: Sorghum, and brown rice
New Planet brews its beer with sorghum, brown rice, orange peel, yucca extract, hops and yeast. This particular blonde ale tastes like banana, and cloves with hints of lemon. It’s unique and nothing close to a true blonde ale and would not recommend trying.
