Red Bridge. Light color, very clear, clean and alive. Carbonation was strong.

Bart's. Tried this today. Has a fuller flavor than Red Bridge and the Carbonation seem finer. Has a bitter after taste but not a bad taste. Both my dh and I liked this better than Red Bridge because of the fuller flavor.

Both the above beers do lack a depth of flavors. This maybe because there isn't much demand to make them stand out.

Next I try New Grist.

So lets hear your reviews.

Woodchuck cider comment: Have only tried the Amber. Very lacking in flavor in my mind but I've never had any other hard cider. Way too bland for my taste.

I can't get those beers where I live in Canada, but I thought I'd review the ones I can get here.

La Messagerie -- gluten-free Original Ale -- light colour, good carbonation, slighty bitter but overall a good tasting ale

La Messagere -- gluten-free Red Ale -- nice amber colour, good carbonation, slightly sweet which is odd at first, but it seems to grow on you

Frio -- gluten-free Lager -- nice light colour and body, good carbonation, sweet tasting, nice mild beer

Cheers!

I've tried Red Bridge and Bart's. There is a sweetness to them I don't like. I had a Green's and boy, was it bitter! It was also very pricey. I think $8 for a large bottle. Seems like I tried another one in Texas, but the name escapes me. I only drank one out of the six-pack because of the sweetness factor.

My BIL brews and we've talked about him trying to brew something. I worry about cc, though...

I've had Redbridge. I'm not a big beer drinker (prefer wine) but it was light and crisp. I liked it.

I like Red Bridge in a limited amount. I had never cared for beer at all till right about the time I realized I had a gluten problem and was just finding Blue Moon and Guinness and loving both of those. But, alas, it was short-lived. We frequent an Irish pub and they have the ciders so I've become a "conniseur" of sorts with the brands that are here locally. I've had all the Woodchucks. The Granny Smith is a brighter flavor than the Amber, but I tend to like the darker Amber, myself. The pub served Hardcore Cider when I first started trying them. I liked it alot. After getting me hooked, they switched to Strongbow. A definite difference that took some getting used to for me. It's a more sour and a tad blander, imo. They also serve Magner's, it's served in large bottles and is a genuine Irish product. It's more like the Hardcore...brighter and a little sweeter.

I would love to try some of the other gluten-free beers besides Red Bridge, but haven't been able to find them in this area.

Redbridge is pretty good - a bit bland, but no off flavors. Barts is a little stronger in flavor, and there's something about it I'm not super keen on, which I suppose might be the sweetness.

I didn't care for New Grist at all, very sour and sweet.

None of the gluten free beers are as dry and deliciously hoppy as the gluten beers I like.

I just tried Red Bridge last night. It was pretty good, expected it to be horrible. I loved beer before I found out I had celiacs...and am SO happy they made gluten free beer....so hard cider beers like woodchuck are ok?!?! I guess I never thought of those...I love those!!

Well considering one of my favorites was Hacker-Pschorr Hefe Weisse, a wheat beer I have not had much luck :)

I'll have Red Bridge when we go out for pizza just because I miss pizza and beer. Initial taste its great but it leaves a funny aftertaste to me.

I have not tried any of the others though. I wasn't a huge beer drinker so I just went back to straight liquor on occasions when we go out and I have a drink.

Hubby has switched to drinking Strongbow cider instead of gluten-free beer. He says it's too hard to think that it is "real" beer, but since cider is different, he's not constantly comparing in his head.
