Tasting like a great Pale Ale, Holgate’s Brewhouse’s Tropical Pale is brewed using all gluten free ingredients, including rice, sorghum and traditional brewing hops like Mosaic and Amarillo.

Originally created for a brewer mate recently diagnosed as coeliac, Holgate’s gluten free test brew was naturally lower in carbs, so Holgate doubled down and lowered the carbs even further to create a great tasting pale with less than 1.4g of carbs per 100mLs.

Winning a bronze medal at the recent AIBA awards, James Smith (The Crafty Pint) describes it as “pouring pale golden and clear as you could wish for, there are hop-derived, melon-led tropical aromas alongside something more mandarin-orange while those hops add a decent clip of fruity bitterness too. It’s pretty lean and dry and, while an experienced palate will be able to tell it’s not gluten-based, it still lives up to its billing as a crafty pale.”

Following on from Holgate’s other successful ‘lifestyle’ beer, their Love All Pale Ale (non alc), the Woodend brewery continues to create great tasting beer which also gives a delicious option to beer lovers trying to live their best, healthy lives.
