Gluten Free

A friend of the family left a comment on one of my beer pics once that he now has to avoid gluten and is therefore limited to gluten free beers.

I had been meaning to try one to see what they're like.

It just so happens that my wife also picked this one up on the weekend. Nickel Brook's Gluten Free.

Gluten Free
I found the aroma to be a little on the floral side. It has a decent head, like the average beer, and the retention is pretty good.

The taste was a little on the bitter side and it had a lingering bitterness that I could probably do without. I also noticed a little gumminess with my saliva after not having a sip for a while. I'm not entirely sure if that's because of the beer or not, but I thought it was worth mentioning. :)

My overall impression was that this been isn't half bad. I have to admit that I'm glad I'm not limited in my choice of beverages due to a gluten allergy or sensitivity. But really, if I was, I think I could feed my beer cravings with this.

One oddity is that this is the first beer can I've seen with nutritional facts printed on it. :)
