I was going to review this when I first tried it. To be honest it didn’t do it for me. But I’ve actually decided over the last month that I don’t mind it. A lot of the other beers I have tasted try to replace the “beer flavour” with other substitutes if that makes sense? They often miss the mark and make me think back to the days of companies using Nutrasweet as a “healthy option” instead of sugar which tasted terrible. Anyone remember that? God that was gross.
Hahn Ultra Crisp
$4 a bottle, $18 a 6 pack and roughly $48 for a carton
Brewed in Australia
Endorsed by Coeliac Australia!
The beer itself is brewed with rice which gives it that classic Japanese flavour. It doesn’t have too much body, but it still tastes pretty good. It’s super clean, it’s preservative free, has low sugar content and is low in carbs. So it doesn’t leave you too bloated. The website blurb says it “delivers a crisp, dry beer that is low in bitterness, has light citrus aromas and a clean finish”. I’d go with that. Though I don’t get much citrus, but that could just be my palette.
This is the GF beer I have drank more of than any other. It doesn’t pretend to be anything, it is what it is. I’d definitely recommend a try. Will I drink it again? No doubt. I think I even have a few in the fridge.
