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.

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.

Ungstrup (34658) - 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.

Bottle. Having friends with gluten and wheat allergy, I was happy to find the GFA and GFL which enabled them to enjoy a beer with us. For them it was fantastic to be able to share and experience something different then the usual dull mass produced beer with nothing that resembles malt. Large light brown creamy head that mostly lasted. Good display of thick lacework. Clear sparkling body with a dark amber color. Aroma of sweet malt and fruit, brown sugar, nutty and caramel, some spice and yeast. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sweet fruity flavor with a hint of bitterness. Fruity sweet finish. Nothing spectacular and very different to a regular Bitter, but still quit nice and drinkable I thought. Especially if you have allergy!

yespr (40833) - 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.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 8, 2005
A gluten and wheat free beer - very interesting. Pours a clear redbrown body with a thin off-white head. Aroma is sweet of brown sugar, toffee and spices with a touch of chocolate cake. Quite full and pretty nice. Flavor is also sweet with hints of hops and cookies and some fruity and sugary notes also. Very different from a "normal" beer but interesting and actually all right.

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.
