an accidental hiatus – but my gluten free reviews posts are back!
just to remind you ..i’m not a writer, and i’m certainly not a food writer. this is likely blatently obvious but i feel the need to point it out from time to time.
anyway. a gluten free beer! specifically, a organic czech lager called celia. i was a little dubious about trying this as i’m not a huge lager fan, but i do try to remain open minded and try things at least once.
this gets huge points for me for the packaging. minimal and very striking. if i saw this in a shop or supermarket i’d definitely be intrigued enough to pick it up and read the info. i like the clever name too! it comes in cans as well if that’s more your thing.
i’m going to be honest here and say i wasn’t really a fan. it definitely tastes well made, but just not quite my thing. to describe the taste: it’s crisp, clean, hoppy and very light with a hint of lemon. has a bit of a (sorry for the vagueness) edge to it too, which makes it stand out a little from more ordinary lagers. would be a perfect summer beer at a picnic or barbecue! for me, one i would rather have with food than to enjoy by itself. if you lean towards the aforementioned characteristics though, you will like it!
fun fact: it’s brewed ina 14th century castle! you couldn’t say that about very many things, and a good talking point if you were at a gathering drinking this.
fellow coeliacs – any beers out there you would recommend? i prefer something a bit softer and warmer on the tongue. quite light and sweet, but not too much. i like citrussy and fruity hints. also a gluten free fruit beer recommendation would be great. think along the lines of fruli.
