New Grist Brewery, one of the first gluten free brewers in the U.S. has created a new brew which is their pilsner-style Gluten Free beer and Added Ginger to it. This has both of the words ginger and ale in it, but this drink isn’t for kids.
This is classified as a beer, but I’m tempted to put it a cider category given its body, and taste.
Look – pourslight-golden colored and frothy with a quickly disappearing white-foamy head
Smell: Strong dry-ginger aroma, overwhelms any others
Body – light and dry with medium carbonation.
Taste; The ginger taste reminds me of the pickled ginger that you eat with sushi.
The taste goes from very dry ginger to a very bitter underlying note, that I recognize as sorghum. It finishes very dry with a lingering bit of that spiciness that you may expect from ginger.
4.7% alcohol by volume
Made from rice, sorghum, ginger, hops and yeast.
Served in a 12 oz. bottle.
Brewed at Lakefront Brewery, Milwaukee, WI
