Glutenberg American Pale Ale
(Brasseurs Sans Gluten)

The Glutenberg brand of gluten-free beers is produced by Canadian brewery Brasseurs Sans Gluten (BSG). The Montreal-based brewery began operatins only last July but has received a number of accolades for their gluten-free beers. Their American Pale Ale won a Silver medal at last year's World Beer Cup held in San Diego. 

From the Glutenberg site:

"Most likely the first gluten-free beer in the world that presents such a hopped character, our American Pale Ale is the true flagship of Glutenberg beers. Its citrus and caramel notes, coupled with a mild bitter finish, come together in perfect harmony."

Here we go... 

Pour - dark honey, golden to auburn in appearance with a solid inch of foamy white head on top. Looks good coming out of the can and the head sticks around nicely.

Aroma - pleasant floral hop aroma with some caramel and molasses notes. Definitely smells on par with the style.

Taste -  wow. This tastes like an American Pale Ale! The malt backbone is there with a nice subtle citrus and floral hop flavor. Slightly dry in the finish with a very noticeable hop kick and a bit of a peppery, spicy flavor. Not going to lie, we're pretty impressed by this gluten-free offering. It's refreshing, blanced, and quite tasty. 

Overall -  it is not easy to make beer without gluten and those that do make gluten-free beer are also challenged by the fact that most folks who like beer are expecting a certain flavor. We are happy to say that this is a very good American Pale Ale, with or without the gluten. Great hop presence, balanced, and leaves some pucker on your lips in the finish. Well done! If you're gluten intolerant you'll want to give this one a try! We'll have to seek out the others they make and put them to the test as well.

Note - BSG is the second brewer to make gluten-free beer pacakged in a can. The other being Nevada's Joseph James Brewing Company which released their Fox Tail Gluten Free Beer in cans in 2011. 

Glutenberg currently cans three gluten-free beers, a Blonde Ale, an American Pale Ale, and a Red Ale. They are currently distributed only in Maine, Massachusetts, and Vermont.
