Gluten & Wheat Free Ale.
Ingredients: Yorkshire water, Sorghum, Malted Barely, Brewing sugars, Hops.
A tawny beer with aromas of Cascade, Liberty and Challenger hops and specially prepared dark sugars provide full bodied initial sweetness giving way to pronounced fruit and hop character with a strong citrus finish. Thanks to its formulation and a unique filtration method Hambleton Ales’ GFB delivers the full flavour and satisfaction expected from a British beer in a gluten and wheat-free formulation.

wimpyjoe (5109) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2013
One of the Nick Stafford range, this ale is unusually both well hopped and very sweet at the same time. Amber with a very thin head.

Bezglutenowe piwo. Wyraźny smak zbóż i aromatów słodowych. W degustacji gożki, nawet bardzo, wszystkie doznania wyraziste są. Jedyne czego można się przyczepić to mała pian, a w zasadzie jej brak. Ale dla zdrowia mozna się tego piwa napić.

SilkTork (5346) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2011
500ml bottle. Tangy bittering hops with some American citric aroma hops - tasting slightly staled. Fizzy carbonation. Fullish, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Sweetish malt with some fruit notes, leaning toward the darker end of the malt spectrum. Quite bready and malty. Dark sugar and molasses.There’s much about this that is very similar to a typical British bottled beer. There are stale notes, and there’s an aged feel about the whole thing. The American citric hops add a slightly modern edge, but not much. Overall, it certainly tastes like a beer, and you wouldn’t know it was gluten free. it’s not great, but it’s not half bad.
