1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very sweet aroma, sugar, honey syrup, its all in there. Dark copper appearance. Very thin to non existant head. Sweet, flat, dull. did I say SWEET. Initial taste I thought it was a fruit pop. Fruity sweetness. SWEET did i say SWEET. I expected a poor beer being a gluten free beer but this was terrible.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a clear, dark amber with a small, off-white head. Sweetish aroma of malt and caramel. Medium body with a sirupy sweetness being very dominant - a rather extreme sweetness. Accents of nuts and caramel. No bitterness. A somewhat dubious pleasure. 220406

Bronze appearance.Sweetness that hits you as soon as you start sipping. Thick texture-if I ever drink glue full of sugar this is what it would probably taste like.The first beer I have tried from this brewery-its got to get better.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, from Asda. Copper bronze, thin but lasting white head, low condition. Gentle hop notes initially but soon drowned out by a heavy caramel sweetness and a delicate smokiness. Very sweet in the mouth with hints of caramel and burnt toffee, some background herbal Drambuie type notes and a faint suggestion of phenolic smokiness. Gentle dry bitterness in the finish but still with a dominant sweetness, although some fruity hoppiness is noticeable. Not a great beer but still far more balanced and beer like than any of the Greens gluten free range, and cheaper.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Thank God I don’t have Coeliac disease. Bottle from Asda. Brownish with off white dissipating head. Aroma of brown sugar, saccharine, sherbert. Mouthfeel scarily awful - feels like overthick coca-cola. Tastes like that blue translucent toothpaste. I love Hambleton’s beers and Nick Stafford is a sound bloke, but this isn’t beer. Good marketing move and a service to Coeliacs, but don’t expect beer if you don’t use malt.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
An amber beer with a nice light brown head. The aroma is very yeasty and spicy - should almost think it was Belgian. The flavor is very sweet - almost like candy, but with a nice acidity to it - something like a grapefruit caramel - if that exist. It also has a toffeeness to it, the mouthfeel is smooth, but it dies quickly on the palate.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Deep amber/bronze with a small white head. Aromas are very sweet and sugary with some berries...and more sugar. Flavours are reminiscent of kit homebrew gone wrong. Has a disgusting fake sweetness. Barely drinkable.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Fruity aroma with a little goat to it. Very sweet flavour and aftertaste. Reminds me a bit of artificial sweetener.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reddish brown with a slim off white head. Big sweet and fruity aroma. Sweet tasting, some hops, sugary. I don’t think I like it, but could probably (would have to!) get used to it if I was gluten intolerant.
