I just tried a beer called Reverend James and it tasted really weird. Full-bodied and slightly spicy but I could detect absolutely no hop characteristics in it at all.
Now, it could be that my palate isn't very sophisticated (it isn't), but could it have been boiled with no hops at all?
Has anyone brewed without hops (or any other "flavouring")? Does just fermented malt produce a drinkable beer?
