COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Cold filtered; and Cask: Unfiltered.
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.

Clear medium amber color with a small, virtually none appearance, virtually none lancing, fully diminishing, head. Aroma is moderate fruity sweet, heather honey, light to moderate vinous. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average duration. Body is medium to light, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. (170508)

yespr (31470) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with an off-white head. Mild citrusy hoppy aroma. Flavour is mild sweet citrus fruity. Very delicate hops flavour with a vague maltbase (obviously) but it seems in balance somehow. Mild sweet finish with a growing dry- and bitterness.

Ungstrup (29474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2005
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.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 22, 2006
(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

Bottled. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is sour berries, paper, oranges and hops. Flavour is overly riped fruits, flowery hops, paper and some spices.

cgarvieuk (14680) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 3, 2007
Deep ruby, grapefruit malt nose , very full flavour, little mouth fizz, sherberty and quite lemony on palate

MiP (13662) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2005
Bottle. Fruity aroma with a little goat to it. Very sweet flavour and aftertaste. Reminds me a bit of artificial sweetener.

imdownthepub (10460) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2010
Bottled, 500ml from Booths, Poulton, Lancs. Copper with hardly any head. Initially quite, tinny, metallic and sharp, almost rusty. After a while there is some hint of hop, but it never smooths off, tasting quite cheap. Not the best from this brewery.

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2008
Clear golden with tiny white head. Vague aroma with mild hoppy notes. Sweet fruity flavor with caramel, peach and apples. Almost no bitterness in the finish.
