Free From Beer Co - Gluten Free Session IPA
Early start this morning to view a flat, so a bit tired after today's working escapades, but still looking forward to my Tipsy-Train beer. This was James' suggestion today repeatedly saying that it should be an interesting choice....I was now scared and had nervous trepidations.
The first smell is pretty non-descript to be honest with a very feint citrusy scent arising and a fair malty undertone. Now the taste...there's the strong malt taste with feint citrus flavour and a fair old hoppy fizz on the tongue, but there's no volume or depth to it. It's not horrible by any means and does have a mix of components, but there is just no balance and nothing to grab hold of and savour. Not sure whether the gluten free aspect is part of it, but this one is not for me with the lack of spark and life to it. If you head down the gluten free and malty taste track then maybe you should try it though.
