Glutaner Lager was provided to Glutenfreebeerfestival.com by the manufacturers and tasted by GF beer drinkers at several gluten free events. Feedback was very positive and this new lager, which must be drunk cold, should prove to be a valuable additional choice for GF drinkers. Careful though, it kicks a very surprising 5.2%. Read the reviews here.
We have awaited samples of Bi-aglut anxiously for a long time. Bi-aglut was the only manufacturer who didn’t want samples tasted by us and the Chesterfield public, and blocked any supply for the beer festival. Yet as one of the original brewers of GF beer it had a credibility for introducing a solution that warranted our support. In addition, those who have used Bi-aglut pasta (for example) have found that this manufacturer has gone a long way to making GF products not just palatable but almost indistinguishable from the “real thing”.
Unfortunately not with Bi-aglut beer. It is sad to say that this was not a very nice drink and most tasters struggled to finish their sample. While at its coldest it was fairly tasteless, what tastes did develop were not particularly attractive. We should thank Bi-aglut for developing a GF beer, much could be done with adjuncts and hops to make it significantly better
We understand that Hambleton Ales has now made their Gluten Free Ale available in much of the USA, under the name Toleration Ale. Read the reviews here.
