>Wold Top’s Against The Grain


I’ll be honest; Gluten Free beers usually leave me cold. Thin, insipid affairs that just don’t satisfy me – despite trying most that I find. To me, it’s an oddity – it’s a style of beer I regard with curiosity. My notion was that one day I’d find one that I like, and that in itself would be a discovery worth hailing.

Well, it finally happened. I picked up a bottle of Wold Top’s Against The Grain (4.5%abv) and chilled it down to cope with the mini-heatwave we are enjoying. And cope it did: super-pale, with an all-important cereal bite in the body that most Gluten-free beers lack (in my opinion). On top of that, a wonderful nose of lemon and lime, and a good amount of carbonation making it a real thirst-quencher. I’d happily drink this again, and that’s the highest praise I can give a Gluten Free beer.

If anyone else wants to recommend a gluten free beer you think I may like, don’t hesitate to let me know.

  1. >I've disdainfully skirted around this particular bottle a couple of times…gluten-free beer, for goodness sake.Might be worth a pop, next time, though.

  2. >I know, I know….!

  3. >I was looking at these bottles very guiltily last night in the knowledge that I had finally got my shit together and bought home the brews they sent me to the Borough office – after them sitting there for more than a few weeks – thinking I should try them.However, the sheer amount of drugs I'd pumped into my system after cricket to alleviate the pain of a pulled quad prevented me doing so and, now, I feel guilty all over again!You have made me really want to try them though, so that's a good start!

  4. >Melissa – in that case, consider it mission accomplished. Let me know what you think!

  5. >Snippet – yeah, give them a try.I picked this up from Asda, as it happens.
