If you have lamented the hazards of gluten in beer then Anheuser-Busch has a solution. It’s Redbridge.
Redbridge beer doesn’t need to make promises to stand out from the crowd; its very essence sets it apart. Redbridge is made without wheat or barley, so the approximately 3.2 million consumers who are unable to drink beer made with barley due to Celiac Disease or because they follow a wheat-free or gluten-free diet can once again enjoy a great tasting beer. Redbridge is a rich, full-bodied lager brewed from sorghum for a well-balanced, moderately hopped taste. (Anheuser-Busch)
Best Served: 50 degrees or colder.
This beer sounds terrible on it’s face but it’s actually quite nice. A lot of light beers have a strange taste as it gets warm and reminds me more of pee water. This beer is made with sorghum so it’s a very light and different flavor. The scent on the nose is more like a skunky beer but the flavor is quite refreshing. At 4% alcohol you can quench your thirst quite well.
I don’t recommend many light beers but I would suggest trying this one if your in the market for one. I would pick it over Bud Lite any day. Ironically, it’s made by Anheuser-Busch ….. the great Satan of brewers.
Aroma: Soft and mildly hoppy. Slight potato bread hint with a tiny bit of Heineken skunk smell at the end.
Taste: The taste light and crisp, though it does not taste like a traditional light beer. It’s almost like a light beer mixed with a very dry wine. There is a slight hop flavor at the beginning but it’s not very bitter or overpowering.
Texture: The beer pours with a good head but does not retain it’s carbonation well. Still a refreshing smooth and crisp feel.
Finish: The finish is a tad like white bread.
Comparisons: This might remind one of Heineken crossed with O’douls.
