Infinite Session’s a revised recipe for its three-strong line of alcohol-free craft beers offers a fresh new taste profile. By using an improved speciality malt selection, Infinite says it has created a beer with better body, a fuller mouthfeel and a more complex flavour. By using a lighter filtration process during the brewing process less body is lost, and the beer retains ‘haze’ which results in a more hoppy flavour. The entire range is now gluten-free too. The on-pack design refresh sees the brand focus on ‘Infinite’ with the aim of simplifying the product names to increase recognition and recall. Co-founder Chris Hannaway says: “We’re really pleased with the new taste profile of the range. Our on pack re-fresh allows us to put more emphasis on ‘Infinite’, meaning it’s something you can drink again and again.”
